Knee-Length Short Sleeve V-Neck Nightshirt in Lightweight Filament Silk
Recommend YES, but with qualifications
While this nightshirt is really shear, thus a bit skimpy, for many men, the comfort ? light weight, warm but not hot ? is absolutely great! You need to be careful with washing as the first one I hung up to dry the garment stretched another ½ size, and is unwearable. Best to hand wash & lay out on large towel to dry. Also, I am not certain how long the garment will hold up, as I find that it is starting to stretch a bit; I am unsure how much longer it will last. I rated this purchase as ?average? on price, because I bought it at a really discounted price ($22). I may buy a couple more if the price gets in that range again.

Garment tag on unisex silk nightshirt
I waited until this nightshirt was on sale, so I'm pleased with the quality, value, and fit. Bought two - one unisex 'his' and one unisex 'hers.' They are very comfortable, fit well, and (so far) seem to be well made, but we haven't tried to launder them yet. Overall, it's a good combination of quality, value, and fit as long as you get them on sale.
The only 'issue' i have with this garment is that fact that the garment tag is uncomfortable. Not a huge issue, since I just kept at the tag stitches until I was able to remove it. While I understand that it's necessary to have information like laundering, etc., I also DON'T understand why there isn't an alternative that would allow the consumer to EASILY remove the tag. I managed to get the tag off without damaging the neck hem, but I had to be persistent. That said, it's much more comfortable now than it was with the tag.

Great fit and feel
I ordered this to replace an older silk nightshirt that was showing signs of wear. The fit is great; it is comfortable without being too big. I love the way the silk feels when I put on the nightshirt. Elegant, but not fussy. A little pricey, but worth it.

Love These Nightgowns
These nightgowns are great. They are perfect for travel, wash great (I machine wash but they can be hand washed easily when traveling) excellent color assortment, fit nicely and a reasonable value. I see most of the reviews are by women but as a male I can say these nightgowns are great also. I even find them more comfrtable than nylon nightgowns.

too long, very thin, durability unknown
I purchased this as a gift for my husband. The fabric is extremely thin; I expected lightweight but not this thin. I don't know if it is worth the price when taking in consideration that it will be inconvenient to take delicate care of the silk. My husband is 5'11" and the "knee length" is actually midway between his knee and ankle. I question the durability of this product; only time and wear will reveal whether this was a worthy investment. I would love to see a manufacturer offer a true knee length mans sleep shirt constructed of "tee shirt" fabric that would be easy to wash and wear at a reasonable price. This style of sleep shirt is difficult if not impossible to find!!! So we will give your product a try.

Be wary of what type you order in this
I ordered the gown in black and light teal, the former for a friend and the latter for myself. While my friend's fit nicely, mine was quite see-through in the lighter color, and it was a tight fit in the bust and hips (5'8", 140lb, 34D,6) I had to send it back and exchange for both a size up and a darker color. Still waiting to see if it will work for me then...The fabric is nice but very thin; the material seems like moderately high quality overall.

Was not as expected.
I ordered two different colours and have returned one today. The product was not what was expected. Previous nightshirts could be used to lounge about and did not require a housecoat. The current product should only be warn in the confines of your bedroom. Not suitable for travel.

Bought 3 of them. Feels like your wearing nothing. Yeah it's sheer but who cares, your not going out in it. Warm,didn't bunch up, easy to turn in bed. Can't think of anything bad
