Steven Alan Floral-Print PJ Pants are $49 (marked down from $135) at Barneys New York. (Steven Alan's men's Pajama Shirt and PJ Pant are available from Steven Alan.)

Dosa Kurta Pajamas Remodelista

Above: The Dosa Tassel Kurta ($205) and Dosa Tassel Pants ($150) are a night-and-day wardrobe staple made of the lightest khadi cotton by Dosa, one of our favorite fashion lines; both are available at Tiina the Store.

Olatz Pajamas Remodelista

Hanro Gray Button Up Pajamas Remodelista

Sleepy Jones men's Henry Pajama Shirt and Mercel Pajama Bottoms | Remodelista

Above: Margot's vote goes to Andy Spade's sleepwear line Sleepy Jones. The men's Henry Pajama Shirt, $140, is made of fine cotton with French seams, and "won't put up a fuss if you throw it on under a blazer." The matching Marcel Pajama Pant is $128. Sleepy Jones also offers a women's line, occasionally in LIberty prints.

  Coyuchi Heather Flannel Pajamas Remodelista

Above: Myles likes Coyuchi's Men's Heather Flannel Pajama Set. Made of organic cotton by a German family-owned mill in business since 1885, it's currently on sale for $118.80 (marked down from $198). Inquire about the availability of women's sizes. Coyuchi also offers gray Heather Flannel Sheets.

Araks Kate Mini Floral Pajama Top and Ally Pants | Remodelista

Above: Understated luxury from Araks: made-in-the-US cotton pajamas with contrasting silk chiffon piping and mother of pearl buttons. The Kate Pajama Top Mini Floral is $283 and the Ally Pajama Pant Mini Floral is $201.
  Brooks Brothers Pajamas Remodelista

  J Crew Pajamas Remodelista

JCrew gingham flannel pajamas | Remodelista

Above: Erin loves the throwback look of J. Crew's Pajama Set in Gingham Flannel; currently on sale for $74.99 (marked down from $95). She's so petite, she wears xx-small—yes, that's a real size; there's even a xxx-small. See J. Crew men's flannel pajamas here.
