    A terry robe or something like a cashmere long robe for lounging around in? MY wife loves both, so I may have a few suggestions. Oh, right, and budget.

    Hmm, well she wants something to put on after she's toweled off after a shower, so a hybrid of the two? Definitely something cozy and soft and warm though. Im willing to spend up to 150

    Ah, yea. I think tapering looks like the only option. OTR options either tapered too much or dont have the big front rise of the 501 which I like. I can get a pair of sugar canes 1947 cheap from japan then taper them..

    Hmmm... $150 may be tight for something that is super nice, but let's see.

    First of all, either go with cashmere or cotton, either fleece or terry. There are a ton of polyester robes, but these are always not as nice.

    Something like this is nice: http://www.myhabit.com/#page=d&dept...3&sindex=4&discovery=search&ref=qd_all_sr_1_4

    And if you want to go for Arlotta, which is sorta the standard cashmere robe at nicer but not ridiculous lingerie stores, you can get one for $299, but.. wait, if you sign up for Bloomingdales emails, right now, there is a "mystery discount" no lower than 20%, and they seem to be generally 25% off, which brings it to a much more manageable $225. My wife has worn hers to death, so I'm getting her one as part of her Christmas gift.

    The Ace robes are pretty fun: http://shop.acehotel.com/collections/robes/products/robe?variant=977519705

    I don't think brand matters much, I always have some at home and they remove cigarette and food smell pretty fast after a party.

    I've bought robes from Restoration Hardware as gifts a couple of times, seem to have gone over pretty well. They have both cashmere and terry in a few different options.

    For something right out of the shower I'd go with a nice cotton terry robe, higher end ones are soft enough for lounging even after you're dry. I ended up paying around $200 for a terry one for my wife's gift last year she loves it

    Haha. Well you're in luck because you can get a pretty similar version of the tux tee cheap. I get a laugh out of the dino sweater at least and do kinda think it's ugly in a way I like. The golf jacket just seems kinda sad to me. It hurts my feelings.

    That feeling when a grail pops upon eBay with no BIN. Four and a half more days of waiting...

    Bunch of Poeme already discount with up to 30% off. No one ever picks up the Poeme stuff. Didn't people laugh at the name when Nicolo made the switch? I had some nice Nicolo shoes at one point. Sad they were about half a size too big. They would be perfect right now.

    Speaking of robes, not for women, but the wife gave me one of these last year after I dropped a few hints.

    That's my answer to the house robe now. Can feel awkward answering the door to my rented flat in it though....
