Excerpt ~ 'Still, pajamas in the modern world aren’t entirely a private, nighttime affair.

(He goes to bed in the altogether.) Should he have a surprise visitor, Mr. Harris explained, the pajamas save him from embarrassment. “I can be appropriate even though I’m in a relaxed environment,” he said.'
