The 15 Best Men's Pajama Shorts for Sleeping, Lounging, and Taking It Easy

Esquire Logo By Barry Samaha of Esquire | Slide 1 of 16: If I’m not in the buff, the only thing I’ll wear to bed is my tighty-whities. I’m just that way. But I do own some of the best pajama shorts in the market. On days when I’m at home, either working or finally catching up on all the seasons of Yellowstone (I’m admittedly very late to the craze), I’ll have on a tank or tee and pair of shorts. Not just any shorts, but those billed as loungewear or pajamas.There’s no one be-all, end-all pair of shorts for every scenario. Some styles are better suited for working out, others for going out. The best pajama shorts, however, are specifically made for staying in. They are meant for lounging, for kicking back and taking it easy. The fabrics are usually plush, lightweight, stretchy, and breezy, and the silhouettes are looser and chiller than others. It makes absolutely no sense to wear something rigid and layered to bed. The whole point of sleeping is to rejuvenate your body and mind for the day ahead, and wearing anything that doesn’t support that is, for me, downright crazy. But hey, if dressing to the nines to bed is your thing, do you, my brother. I wear tighty-whities; no judgement. But if it isn’t, if you really want to feel comfortable and get a good night’s sleep, then check out some of the best pajama shorts below.
