What makes men's clothes more classic and enduring? Is it because the styles don't change as much as female trends? Nonetheless, if it can work for Coco, it can work for me.

As I've mentioned before, I have a bit of an affinity towards men's clothes. I lost my grandad when I wasn't young enough to really appreciate and be grateful for the time I spent with him. When you are young you just laugh and joke around when he tickles you and he lets you have all the treats you want even if your nan and mum say no. You don't stop to remember their every word and revise the contours of their face at eight years old. I don't think there is a day that goes by when I don't think about him and imagine what he thinks about what is going on in my life. Wearing masculine shapes remind me of him a great deal and because of this I am a true advocate of the pyjama trend.
We aren't walking around in nightgowns, that just sounds absurd. What can be more chic than sleeping in a shirt? I own silk pyjama bottoms to wear outside of the house but now I dream about having a shirt too. I want to feel like I'm Jimmy Stewart in Rear Window (without the broken leg, the feelings of emasculation and a killer living in the same apartments as me), just maybe not so much Hugh Hefner.
