Luxurious Robes – Five Plus One

Five Plus One is our weekly series of buyer’s guides. We pick a specific category and dig up five great options along with one that’s a little outside the norm.


It doesn’t get much better than the feeling of putting on a warm robe when you get out of the shower on a cold day. But that doesn’t mean you have to overspend to get a top-notch robe. While you’ll surely get a higher quality piece if you’re willing to spend a bit more, you’ll find that even entry-level robes will leave you feeling calm, relaxed, and ready for a great cup of morning coffee.

1) Reigning Champ: Loopback Cotton Jersey Hooded Robe

Luxurious-Robes---Five-Plus-One 1) Reigning Champ: Loopback Cotton Jersey Hooded Robe

Most people know Reigning Champ for their top-quality sweatshirts, and though robes are a bit of a different beast, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that they make a killer one, too. Made in Canada from loopback cotton jersey fabric this robe will arrive comfortable and get even better as its broken in. It’s made with raglan sleeves, a matching fabric belt, and a substantial hood, which gives you that much more warmth.

Available for $150 from Mr. Porter in Black, Gray, and Navy.

2) Vermont Flannel: Flannel Robe

Luxurious-Robes---Five-Plus-One-2)-Vermont-Flannel-Flannel-Robe

Vermont Flannel is many people’s go-to brand for quality, soft flannel shirts, but their Flannel Robe is arguably an even more compelling reason to check them out. With its solid price, large selection of patterns, and unisex fit, this robe is just about as great an entry level robe choice as you can find. Each piece is cut and sewn in the USA to ensure the top-notch quality that you expect to see from your next favorite piece.

Available for $80 from Vermont Flannel.

3) Coyuchi: Unisex Robe

Luxurious-Robes---Five-Plus-One-3)-Coyuchi-Unisex-Robe

I don’t know what it is about waffle knit fabric, but for me, it often elevates an otherwise great garment into my next favorite piece. So when I saw that Coyuchi was using such a fabric for their Unisex Robe, I knew it had to make its way onto this list. Available in three classic, neutral colors, you can find a size and color combination to fit just about everyone’s preferences. This robe is made from Turkish woven organic cotton fabric, and comes with all the details you’d expect: wrap fabric belt, loose fit, and large front pockets.

Available for $98 from Coyuchi in Alpine White, Fog, and Shadow.

4) IKEA: Rockan Bathrobe

Luxurious-Robes---Five-Plus-One-4)-IKEA-Rockan-Bathrobe

While I’m not stranger to including IKEA in Five Plus One articles when it comes to furniture, this will be the first time I’ve included them for an article of clothing—but their Rockan Bathrobe certainly deserves some recognition. Made from a double-sized 100% cotton terrycloth, this robe is as durable as it is comfortable and would make a great companion for this coming winter.

Available for $30 from IKEA in Gray and White.

5) L.L. Bean: Scotch Plaid Flannel Robe

Luxurious-Robes---Five-Plus-One-5)-L.L.-Bean-Scotch-Plaid-Flannel-Robe

If there is one brand out there that knows their flannel, it’s L.L. Bean, and they’ve made some great flannel fabric choices when it comes to their Scotch Plaid Flannel Robe. It’s available in six different flannels, all unique and great in their own right, as well as five sizes and two lengths. With its classic design and all these great options, this robe is sure to become a favorite—just don’t get carried away and buy one in every colorway.

Available for $70 from L.L. Bean.

Plus One – Anderson & Sheppard: Cotton-Terry Robe

Luxurious-Robes---Five-Plus-One-Plus-One---Anderson-&-Sheppard-Cotton-Terry-Robe-front-back

Not everyone wants to spend a bundle on a robe, but for those that do Anderson & Sheppard’s Cotton-Terry Robe is a great choice. As the name implies it’s made from 100% cotton-terry fabric, but that’s far from its most interesting feature. With its horn button closure, double-breasted design, and vibrant colors, this robe is really quite different from anything else out there.

Available for $630 from Mr. Porter in Navy and Blue.
