    Who has time for a bathrobe??? If I need to be barely dressed, I'll toss on some sweats. No draft up yer legs in sweats. ;)

    Honestly, I don't think I've ever worn a bathrobe. Even while taking a bath!

    Normally I just run around the house in full commando mode...

    But many, many years ago we (college friends & spouses) were in Thailand for a wedding. The groom's family treated us to a stay at Pattaya beach. The hotel had the thickest, plushest bathrobe I had ever seen, then or since. I assumed it was made locally (or at least imported from Cambodia or Vietnam or even Burma, IDK).

    YES! I want to know too. My wife buys these thin crappy poly ones and they don't absorb water like a robe should. The water just kind of sits there against my skin. Give me a plush thirsty robe please!

    Bought my wife a Thirsty Towels bathrobe. Not as soft as I thought it would be, but really heavy! Not sure where they rank in comparison to other higher end bathrobes.

    I have a Ralph Lauren Polo robe that I have had for over five years. Seems like the more I wear it the better it feels. It wasn't cheap though.

    That's like asking a man what brand his shirt is. How on earth would he know?

    I gotta ask - how many sheep are near you when you need coverage, and why are they there? :rofl::rofl:

    Hugh Hefner's seamstress doubtlessly makes the world's best bathrobes.

    One option is to go to or call a hotel gift shop and check out if they sell the ones they keep in the suites. They are usually great, but I dont remember the brand.

    I've had some really nice robes in Bangkok, New Orleans (one nicer than the other in the same room), and on a Carnival Cruise. Some nice hotels will sell you the robe, or tell you where you can get them.

    You must be new here.
