    Robes. PJ once in a while. But mostly robes, and nothing else. (*) (*) It's only me and my wife right now, but if I have kids, I would probably need something inside.

    When I get up I wear Morning Dress unless my morning coat is at the cleaners,in which case I wear a Stroller.I wear this until very late afternoon when I change into a dinner jacket,and around 8 pm or so I switch to a smoking jacket.If I'm having guests for dinner I change into White Tie instead of the dinner jacket.

    The sad thing about this is that this is probably the most minimal and efficient wardrobe. 1 type of shirt for all occasions. 4 different jackets depending on formality and a different pair of trousers for the morning and evening.

    In winter I usually wear sweat pants, cashmere sweater, and fluffy house slippers. For summer it's usually shorts, polo, and flip flops.

    Undershirt and shorts mainly, even when it's 60 degrees or below, I just tough it out and freeze. I'm not sure why people like slippers, I always hated them and had them forced upon me as a child of which I refused; one Christmas, I got nothing but a pair of slippers from my mother.

    Usually a pair of cords and a t-shirt and sweater/fleece, although I'm trying to come up with a more presentable standard for home-wear.

    My wife often just wears yoga pants and a t-shirt/sweater combination, so it's not a great incentive. She dresses slightly better for work than I do, so likes to be more comfortable off-hours.

    As I'm often cooking or doing other chores evenings and weekends, I don't want to wear anything that would be damaged or get too dirty. However, I keep joking with my wife that soon I'll get a complete tweed 3-piece suit in order to be properly presented while gardening outdoors.
