George Cortina’s collaboration with Anderson & Sheppard has officially arrived! A long-time wearer of Anderson & Sheppard and pajamas, of course, it would only make sense for George to team up with the Savile Row tailors to create a collection of bespoke pajamas and even a pair of luxurious pony print slippers. Read George’s message below and shop the collection on Anderson & Sheppard.

I’ve always had a kinship with Eloise. When you have a job that requires living out of a suitcase, the hotels where you frequent become your home, and the people who work there– your family. So when lounging in your family’s living room, would you ever think twice about wearing your pyjamas? I think not. So whether sitting at the Hemmingway Bar at the Ritz in Paris, having breakfast at The Chiltern Firehouse in London, eating lunch outside the Hotel du Cap in Antibes or taking in the sun on the terrace at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, you may find me doing so in my pyjamas. And while some may have thought me a mad man, my hotel family loved my style. After all, stylish people know that one can look as elegant in their pyjamas as they do in a bespoke suit.
Because you see these were never just any pajamas. I had been having my pajamas custom made—painstakingly perfecting the ideal cut and searching for colours I couldn’t find anywhere. And so when it came time to share my obsession with the world outside of the hotels’ walls, there was only one option—to collaborate with Anderson & Sheppard, my tailor on London’s Savile Row who has been bringing my vision to reality through their expertise and quality for over a quarter of a century.
