Dressing Gown : where to get for less than $240??

Postby Barnsley » Mon, 24 Dec 2012 10:17 am

Hi Folks,

Last minute shopping help .... Dressing gown for men, where to find.

Been to the usual spots and three different M&S stores and the only one I could find was in Takashimaya at $240 ...

Thanks!

$240 is a lot for (i assume) a bathrobe!

i bought mine from a hotel for $25. or $35.

Yep Bath Robe ....... So I can walk in to any hotel and buy one can I?

You can get them for a tenner in the UK and I was hoping for the same here, but I could only find them in the shops with a Japanese angle.

BHG has. Don't remember the price - around S$50.

But it's ugly!

i bought mine from a hotel... ages ago. i honestly can't remember where - it might have been the marriott singapore or maybe marina mandarin oriental.

i bought it when i stayed there in a club room. i don't think you can walk in to the hotel gift shop and get one but no harm trying...

edit: if i find it, do you want it?!

Could try at M+S. Or order online from somewhere like Macy's?

Managed to find one in everyones favourite 24hr shopping Emporium.

Not sure of the quality but it looked OK.

Was surprised M&S didnt do , but will take note of the BHG recommend for next time.
