Hugh Hefner's Most Iconic Robe-Wearing Moments
Long before daytime pajamas became the trend du jour, Hugh had made it his signature look for decades. The business mogul was so devoted to his comfy-dressing ways that you can find him just about anywhere, at just about anytime, wearing his silk threads.
Hugh was known for hosting movie nights in the mansion, at which his uniform was a comfy pair of black silk PJs.
