Dressing gown, batin

Postby ashtondav » Tue Jun 27, 2017 1:03 pm

Looking for a lightweight summer dressing gown. Don't they wear em in Spain? I went to Dunnes, Eroski and C&A. Not a single one.

I afraid shopping online is the only way, you are going to buy this sort of Dressing Gown here in Spain

Good Luck

Or buy a lightweight one in Northampton and bring it over. M and S in Abington Street.

M&S in Abingdon st is a good idea.

I bought both of ours in Dunnes but presumably they no longer do the men's version (I saw women's ones there the other week).

I'm on the hunt for a man's good quality towelling bath robe, which is also impossible to find here (although not been to El Corte Ingles yet). Only seen very cheap and flimsy things in Eroski et al.

I bought one in El Corte Ingles last year. Very high quality and very thick towelling. Not cheap of course! Probably cheaper to stay in a hotel and nick one :lol: :lol:

I got one (gents lightweight) in Dunnes less than a month ago, just hung on the wall next to the slippers.
Never seen a towelling one though, never been to Corte Ingles either.

If you can wait a little bit longer I think the Hugh Heffner Estate will be auctioning his collection off on eBay. :lol:

Probably why I don't usually shop there!

However ..... the one he is currently using must be 25 years old :shock: so perhaps it is worth the cost! It has seen better days now though, so I will keep looking.
