    I am only lamenting about the availability. Too few vendors offer too few sizes. Often there is no stock for long periods of time. I am guessing that if you are considering buying this style of pajamas that you are more interested in the sleeping comfort than the styling. If you are like me you probably have been wearing this style for decades. I have found that this brand of ski style pajamas is the best quality to-date. And if you are under 5'-9" tall they probably will work great for you. Otherwise, they may bunch up in the crotch or in the armpits. On the plus side the 100% combed cotton is super soft and there is very little shrinkage after washing. You can easily hand stretch it back to its original size. If you are a side sleeper who pulls one leg up you may want to get the next biggest size. This will give you more room in the seat. If the waist is too big you can easily tighten it with a safety pin in the back. Last year I could only find a tall size that was 2XLT. It was perfectly long in the legs and arms for my 6'-1" frame but six inches too wide at the waist. A safety pin in the back made it perfect!

    I thought these PJs were made by MUNSINGWEAR BALBRIGGAN SKI PJs but these are by a company called State Of Maine. They are the same style though, which I wanted, meaning that there's elastic cuffs on the wrists and ankles to prevent the pajamas from rolling up your legs when in bed.

    Anyway, these are comfortable enough but like another reviewer stated these shrink in the arms and legs about 1.5 inches or so after the first washing.

    Thanks to the many reviews, I was pleased with the pajamas when they arrived. They run small so there is supposed to be a Tall Man size but I couldn't find a listing for it, so bought the XL. Would have preferred a bit longer sleeve length (5ft 10 build) , so if there is a Tall Man size that would be better. If you prefer Ski pajamas, these will be what your looking for-nice Cotton feel!

    I bought these as a gift for a brother who's weight exceeds his height requirements. These are the pajamas that have always worked best for him because he can push up the cuffs on the pants. For a 2XL man with a 5'3" height, these have been a good choice. The durability and comfort are also very good.

    I originally bought these for my husband in a medium. He loves them but the length shrinks when washing in warm water. I bought them in a size large and after shrinking, they are the right length.

    My husband loves these. Soft, and just loose enough. The cuffs on the legs keep the pants from riding up. He’s of average height and the length is good (there is a Tall version, too).

    Very pricey for sleepware because there is not much competition, but exactly what I wanted. Very comfortable, and warm, and stays put during the night.

    Very comfortable pajamas especially for those who like the ski pajamas style. The pajamas are a little short in the sleeve and length for me as they do not have a tall version. The pajamas did not shrink as some of the comments stated. I washed the pajamas in cold water as the label says that it should be and then line dried them to avoid any heat. It would be nice if they were offered in a different color.
