“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

A clothing conundrum
Thursday, December 17, 2009

Time to Christmas shop for my wife. I went out to look for warm pajamas because she is now spending most of each week in much-colder Nashville.

Problem: There are no warm pajamas or nighties that do not look like something a cowboy or fat grandpa would wear to bed.

Seriously. I even looked at Victoria's Secret, where the clerk said, "Oh, she'll look great in these."
And I said, "Those look like a birth-control device to me. They're plaid flannel with buttons."

I'm not asking for lots of bare flesh to show -- that, of course, would take away the whole warm factor. But can't we design anything that is both sexy and warm?
