I am blessed with a cool dad who knows enough about menswear to send me niche Instagram posts from Japanese fashion magazines with comments like “Check out his pants!” But he’s also a dad who loves being comfortable. So this past Christmas, I decided against the usual coffee-table books, gadgets, and design-y cookware and instead gave him this cotton bathrobe from Lacoste. It was a slam-dunk gift, hitting the sweet spot between stylish loungewear and big comfy towel with arms. Now that same robe in multiple colors is over 54 percent off. Because it’s made of cotton, it’s cozy year-round — equally great for throwing on after a shower or lounging by the pool. At this price, I wonder if I should buy one in a different color for my mom, so my parents can twin during their Sunday-morning crossword dates. Whoever receives it, including yourself, will be thrilled.
