What better time of the year to do a collaboration with an iconic brand like The White Company than in the festive season! When my huge white package arrived wrapped up like a Christmas hamper full of Cashmere menswear, I was seriously like kid on Christmas morning ripping the box open to see what I’d been sent!! Recently in Scotland we’ve been experiencing EXTREMELY cold weather, today hitting -5, so having this luxury cashmere to lounge around the house as I type this blog post has been an absolute life saver. Also having it to go to and from the gym has been an absolute godsend.
My initial thoughts on the cashmere mix products was an anticipation that they might have been fairly itchy and uncomfortable to wear to the gym, especially if you’re body was hot or sweating, but this wasn’t the case. This range fits like a glove guys, super comfortable and relaxing and not itchy in the slightest. It’s been cut to perfection to really fit the body, but not too much like you’re wearing a pair of skinny jeans. Just enough to have that fitted yet relaxed look. Perfect in my opinion!
Like me, I wonder if your connections and associations to The White Company go to that of luxury candles, stylish home accessories, gorgeous smells from room sprays and diffusers, opulent festive tables sets and the occasional womenswear. But as this brand has evolved and grew it’s became way more than that. They have clothing in both womenswear and menswear, homeware, fragrances, candles, a kids line, accessories, gifts and lighting. Seriously everyones home needs to be a White Company Home…….for me, maybe one day (as I make a wish!)
The price point for the men’s line is certainly much higher than your standard mens loungewear, however you definitely get what you pay for. I’ve never been one for spending a lot on night clothes, and if I’m being honest I usually opt for cheaper pyjama bottoms from the local supermarket! But after been lucky enough to get to try these out I think it’s fair to say I’ve been converted to the style side of nightwear! No more Asda PJ’s for Mario!
I was sent the Navy Check Pyjama Bottoms, the Window Pane Check Flannel Pyjama Bottoms in Grey Marl (both in size small). I teamed this up with a plain white tee. The Cotton Cashmere Joggers and the Cotton Cashmere Hoodie both in Navy (these were in size Medium). I also got my hands on the Men’s Cashmere Rib Beanie in Charcoal Marl, and to top it off the most amazing smelling candle ever, Black NOIR!! Size wise I had to return the pyjama bottoms, I initially ordered a size medium but had to change for size small as they’re quite big made. The cashmere hoodie and joggers come with cuffed trouser legs and curved pockets for a clean fit, super sleek.
So my overall opinion is one of high quality, comfortable and stylish fits that will definitely impress, especially if this is going to be for a gift. If you’re considering buying some new nightwear id highly recommend giving some of these a try you won’t be disappointed!
