Plaid Cotton Flannel Robe
Flannel robe for Christmas
Twenty three years ago I made a flannel robe for my husband. I decided this Christmas I had mended his robe one too many times and it was time for a new one. Since his old one contains many memories I knew I had to find a very nice robe for its replacement. May I say he LOVES this robe. Perfect size, perfect length, perfect pocket positioning, nice collar and nice overlap in the front. He loves the flannel fabric. Thank you Vermont Store. He says he's going to use his old robe to line his gun case!!!

A VERY PICKY HUSBAND!
I have one of those husbands that is very difficult to buy for. For years, I've searched for that "perfect" flannel robe that my husband would like. About 2 years ago, I finally I found it! He loves his Tartan Robe from Vermont Country Store so much that he wants the same one as a Christmas gift again this year. It's warm without being bulky and washes nicely without pilling.
At least I know that this year, he'll like at least ONE of his gifts! Thank you for a great product!

Men's Robe Just Right for this Lady
I have long arms, and have never been able to buy a ladies' blouse with sleeves that are long enough. I buy men's shirts size 15-1/2:33 in order to get long-enough sleeves. So when I went looking for a light flannel robe, the proverbial light bulb appeared above my head and I ordered a men's size. It fits just fine, and I love it!

Just what he needs
My husband is seriously ill. He can not tolerate any thing binding around his waist. I bought him cotton gowns and robe this summer in ample size so they were comfortable. Since it is getting cooler I was pleased to see the flannel extra long items. After I ordered and gave them to him he was extremely pleased. So far they have all washed well.

Just the right weight...
Just right for this season. It's a bit too big at the shoulders and a bit tight at the hips, but I much prefer the Black Watch Plaid of this unisex robe (dark green, blue, and black) to the paler pastels used in most of the women's' styles. (The one woman's robe I tried, in a dark plaid with purple in it, was poorly constructed, too, and split along a side seam.)
As long as this one doesn't split a seam, I think it'll be good. I'm also considering taking some material from the sleeves so they don't need to be rolled up 2"...

Very poor quality fabric
I bought this robe for my husband. He wanted a light weight robe and from that perspective this robe fits the bill. After washing my husband wore it once it is now pilling with numerous loose threads.

Finally: An Ankle-Length Robe!
I bought my wife a new robe for her birthday. While she was delighted with it, she wanted to know why I didn't have one. I immediately thought of Vermont Country Store. To my surprise, I found an ankle-length robe that was true to size and fit perfectly! What a store!

Plaid Cotton Flannel Robe - Absolutely Perfect!
My husband had been mentioning that he wanted a flannel robe in the longer style for Christmas. Sounds easy, right? HAH!
I googled, I shopped online, I trudged through the malls and various other stores for a month or two and could not find anything like what I knew he had in mind
Finally I think one of the other pages I was shopping on had a link to The Vermont Country Store where I found exactly what I thought my husband was looking for.
And it was. He was absolutely thrilled! The fit was perfect in every way.
I'm pretty sure I'll be back in the future.
