Do you own a onsie ?
Still got a thermal deep sea diving under-suit somewhere that I used as lounge-wear when I lived in the highlands and didn’t have central heating. If I got home from work late and it wasn’t worth lighting the fire I’d just put that on instead, kept me toasty even when there was thick ice on the insides of the windows. Only downside was it was so thick it was totally impossible to scratch your arse.Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
I’ve pretty much always owned one I think.. for multi-day winter fishing trips and suchlike (EDIT: and like maccruiskeen above, ideal for surviving dodgy accommodation)
Although not at present.. However, we’ve just decked the kids out in Dino-onsies so I’m hoping that I’ll be next 😀Posted 4 years agomattbibbingsMember
Those of us who work in the outdoors (climbing, caving, paddling etc) have been rocking the onesie or ‘baby grow’ for decades.
It’s only recently they have been adopted by the chattering classes.
I could not live without mine. I have many for different activities/seasons etc.
They are so very very right.Posted 4 years agojonah tontoMember
i have one bought for me as a secret santa thing last year. wore it once or twice when getting home from work late and its not worth getting changed into real clothes.Posted 4 years ago
not as comfy as a pair of joggers and a hoody-
cant scratch your arse,
constantly have a wedgie,
have to get naked to have a shit.AmbroseMember
I had a caving undersuit custom made about fifteen years ago. Puke green in colour but so comfy. I was so impressed that I commissioned one for each family member, from the then 1 y.o. Thomas all the way up to Mrs Ambrose. Mine still fits, but it is very- er- ‘snug’. Looking to get some more for Christmas.Posted 4 years agohelsMember
So Onsies are OK as long as they are super macho ?
I wear mine in the house all the time, but of course I did climb Everest in it, with no oxygen and I carried my Sherpas on my back when they got tired.
And I dont’t look at all like a weird-arse result of a smurf and a teletubbie breeding, while wearing it. Not at all.Posted 4 years agobolMember
I know I look a **** in it, I will never leave the house in it and my wife and kids laugh at me in it (a lot), but…
I quite like to amuse my loved ones at my expense, it is very warm and comfortable, and I’m old enough not to really give a shit what people think.
I’ve actually wanted a baby grow since first having kids, so was delighted when they finally came in my size. I just wish they had integral socks.Posted 4 years agobreadcrumbSubscriber
My fancy dress outfit this Halloween was a devil onesie. It was toasty warm.
It did however have a very low crotch (to give the impression of short devil legs), and the gusset ended up with a decent size hole in it…
I would never wear one in public but would consider one for lazy Sundays…Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Now that’s lounging-wear for a man! Where would one get such a thing?
I seem to have a tall fairy godmother who goes into various specialist shops and orders in extra large specialist clothing then never goes back to buy it. Some time later I arrive and said outsized garment specialist garment is on the sale rail. I got it from a yacht chandlers in Findhorn for about £15 but expect they retail for a fair bit more than that normally.
Elsewhere the same fairy godmother had also ordered some huge ice boots with an inch thick felt lining that I got for a tenner and used to wear them round the house as slippers.
I think anyone can extrapolate from this that I was single at the time.Posted 4 years agotazzymtbMember
I would rather split my man bag with a blunt chisel, remove my dangly manbits with a power drill with wire brush attachment, then fill the resultant bleeding mess with hot coals, whilst fellating and orangutan with dubious personal hygiene and listen to his satisfied lip smacking sounds than wear such hideous apparel.
Gentlemen should wear harris or islay tweed when it is cold..honestly you lot have no breeding at allPosted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
I have a furry one peice Elvis Jumpsuit I was made to wear for my stag do. That night didn’t end well.
I was made to wear a one peice ski suit for winning a snowboard race on a uni ski trip. It was lush. Really comfy, nice and warm, just wore boxers underneath. Zipped to the waist for some terrasse de soleil action, just needed a medallion and a couple of coats of spray tan to top things off.Posted 4 years agopictonroadSubscriber
I must be a right oddity, I’ve never understood the need for “lounging about the house” specific clothing. I tend to wear, trousers, a T-shirt and if it’s cold, a jumper. Just as I would if I was walking to the shops or driving somewhere or pretty much anything else.
2 types of clothes are acceptable. Clothes clothes and sporting clothing for sport, the two should not mix and straying outside these boundaries is for swampy types.Posted 4 years ago
