The Best Bathrobes for Men for 2019 (Reviews)

A new year has just been ushered in and temperatures are way down. It’s the perfect time to shop for the best bathrobe for men, and gift yourself a little something to start the year.

Whether you’re just lounging around the house or reading a newspaper on a balcony on an autumnal Sunday morning, you deserve the quality and comfort only the best can give. We know just how busy you are so we’ve shortlisted our favorite picks based on looks, comfort, and price.

All of the robes on our list share these traits:

  • Great value for money
  • Super comfortable for vegging out at home
  • Very good-looking; you can have your in-laws over and you won’t feel exposed or half-dressed
  • Hems are mostly up to calves; ideal for cold weather
  • All have belts and pockets
  • We made sure to include only brands and models that have high satisfaction ratings (Well, actually, we only order when it’s like that; otherwise you hear a lot of complaints and you get dissuaded to buy)
  • Because most are made from fleece, these are not for toweling off or drying yourself after a bath

Whether you’re buying a robe for yourself, or you’re shopping for your other half, I hope you find something you like from our list.

#4 Latuza Men’s Cotton Flannel

Latuza Men's Cotton Flannel Robe

If you want a comfy robe to wear around the house that’s made of flannel, check this Latuza cotton flannel robe out. It’s got printed flannel patterns in different colors.

Hubby has one at home and I personally think he looks dashing when he wears it. He is a lean man and I would recommend this brand for lean gentlemen. (For bigger men, see #2)

Pros 

  • Very stylish; you can choose your flannel design
  • Good for men with thin or lean frames
  • Tends to run small
  • Good quality; soft and made of cotton (others are made of polyester)
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • If you have a big belly, you won’t have enough material so better to choose a size up or choose a different brand altogether

#3 Hooded Herringbone

Hooded Herringbone Men's Black Soft Spa Full Length Warm Bathrobe With Grey Kimono Shawl Collar

Ridiculously hot model aside, this is a super comfy and good-looking spa robe. I love the dark color with the soft grey hood.

Pros 

  • Hood will keep you extra warm in really cold weather
  • Has double belt loops for a good fit

Cons

  • Needs to be washed first to avoid lint going everywhere
  • Not an option for you if you don’t like fleece

#2 Ross Michaels Hooded Robe

Ross Michaels Mens Hooded Robe - Plush Shawl Kimono Bathrobe

It seems to be a pattern but the most popular robes for both men and women are hooded. I believe this is because people purchase robes to get warm and stay warm during cold weather. These past winters, the temperature has been uncharacteristically cold and when this happens, a warm robe is just infinitely comforting.

(Or maybe it’s the influence of all the boxers and MMA fighters using hooded bathrobes in their dramatic entrances?)

Long sleeves, hems up to lower calves, and hooded bathrobes make this robe a huge hit.

It is the Amazon’s number 1 bestseller for Men’s Bathrobes.

Pros 

  • Sleek designs from solid colors to two-toned designs
  • Made from polyester so warm and lightweight
  • Hood makes this robe very warm
  • Double belt loops for custom fit
  • Affordable price

Cons

  • May come larger than expected so make sure to get the right size for you
  • May leave fuzz or lint despite washings (Suggest you follow the washing instructions)
  • May get too warm if weather isn’t cold enough; this is intended for really cold weather

#1 Alexander Del Rossa Fleece Robe

Alexander Del Rossa Mens Fleece Robe, Shawl Collar Bathrobe, Large XL Steel Grey (A0114STLXL)

This Alexander Del Rossa is a great loungewear. It’s available in different solid colors and patterns too.

I’d personally recommend this for men who are big-boned or big-bellied. Now you’re probably wondering why we chose this brand as our number 1 pick instead of Amazon’s. Based from our admittedly limited orders in the past (from buying for relatives and ourselves), we find this brand more reliable in terms of overall reliability in quality (stitching, placement of belt loops, etc.).

Pros 

  • Super soft and warm because it’s made of fleece; perfect for cold weather
  • Unlike other fluffy and plush robes, this doesn’t leave fluff around the house or in the washer.
  • Very good quality for the price
  • Roomy; unlike the Latuza mentioned earlier, this is recommended for men of girth or those with big bellies

Cons

  • Some buyers find the sleeves on the short side
