This is a rare pair of 1950s vintage matching “His and Hers” pajama sets, unused and still pinned up in their original plastic packaging. The bags read “Kimo-Jama Pajamas For Him and Her by Pleetway”. I don’t want to unpin the sets as I’ll never get them back properly, but the bags have an illustration that gives a very good idea as to how these would look on the body. The pajamas consist of a kimono style top that is printed in gold and black with a horse, medallion and Chinese character pattern on a red cotton background. The top is trimmed in black cotton. The pants are made of black cotton with a thin gold band at the cuff. Age: 1950s
Label: Pleetway Kimojama Sanforized 100% Cotton.
Sizing: Size 13/14 is indicated on the ladies set and size “B” is indicated on the man’s set. Size B on vintage pajamas indicates a medium size that would fit someone who normally wears a 14 1/2 to 15 1/2 neck size and a 36” to 40” chest size. The 13/14 is a vintage sizing, but should fit a present day large.
Condition: As these were never used, they appear to be in like-new condition. I’ve tried to inspect them without unpinning and I don’t see any issues, however, they’ve been stored for about 60 years, so maybe they should be laundered before being worn.
This is a very nice quality pajama set – rare to find unused men’s pajamas of this age….
This is an exceptionally rare set - unusual to find matching “his and hers” pajamas set of this age, unused and still in their package. Wonderful vintage pajamas!
