Men's guide to pajamas: why they're better for sleep than loungewear

When it's time for bed, you need something comfortable to wear if you want a good night's sleep. And though you might be tempted to reach for your loungewear, it's not the best choice. Instead, get a pair of men's pajamas from Lands' End that will help you snooze peacefully.

If you're curled up on the sofa watching a movie or reading a book, loungewear is great. You'll feel more relaxed than you would in jeans and a men's button-up shirt, after all. However, a pair of sweatpants and long sleeve t-shirt might make you too warm for quality sleep.

Overheating while you're dozing can stop the body from producing enough growth hormone and melatonin. This can negatively impact various things, including your metabolism. Staying cool while you snooze, however, can result in deeper, longer rest.

During the summer, stay cool in one of our cotton pajama sets. Lightweight and breathable, they're just what you need on warm nights. Many styles, including woven pajama pants, also have an adjustable waist and a relaxed fit, making them extra comfy.

In winter, you may need warmer PJs to help you reach that just-right temperature. Something like our men's flannel pajamas will do the job nicely. The super-soft material feels great against your skin, but still allows for air circulation.

No matter what you wear to bed, developing good sleep habits is important. Try to hit the hay at the same time every night to get your body used to a pattern. Staring at screens before bed can also interfere with your circadian rhythms, so put down the phone and tablet and hour or two before dozing off.
