The Piccadilly Pyjamas are a chic sleepwear set with oriental accents – a soft and open Mandarin collar and gently curving hems. Version 1 consists of shorts and a cap-sleeved shirt; Version 2 of cropped trousers and a shirt with three-quarter length sleeves. The pyjama bottoms have a flat-front waistband with an elasticated back, finishing with a ribbon tie. Comfortable yet elegant, these pyjamas are perfect loungewear for those who like their comfies cool!
