Commander Riker of Star Trek: The Next Generation wore what I called a pajama set in the 14th episode, “Angel One.”

REVIEW OF THE PAJAMAS
The Original Series Uniform were considered comfortable and the emblem looks like the real one that the captain wears. The sizing may be an issue. Though the size is one size fits most, the pajamas come in a very small adult size and this could be misleading for a correct size fitting for a larger man. They can also give a baggy feel to the correctly fitted size man. The pajamas may shrink on the first wash and the texture is very soft. These elements are something to consider when deciding on the purchase.
The Footed Pajama Set-There are no reviews reported for these pajamas yet. That does not reflect the quality of the clothing at all.
The Star Trek: The Next Generation PJs are sure to be a hit. There are a lot of pleased customers for this product. From happy birthdays, grins, to feeling like a captain, most men seemed to enjoy this product. The rating is 4.6 out of 5 stars. The sizing may be a slight issue as it can fit a little large for the shirt, but the pants supposedly fit just fine.
Most customers ordered a size larger to make sure for the comfortable fit. The material for the most part is comfortable so there should be no problem sleeping in these pajamas as it is 100% cotton.
The Lounger PJs are prone to shrink, but one customer advised to machine wash and line dry the pajamas and that will prevent the shrinking issue. Men ranging from 5’3 to 6’2 supposedly did not have an issue with the size of the garment. The Loungers are warm to wear so this could be a perfect sleepwear for the winter. They are reported baggy with plenty of room. It maintains its vibrant color after several washings.

You can buy these items for Christmas presents or birthdays. The occasion really does not matter. If it is Star Trek, he’ll love and he will love these pajama sets, too.
