J.Crew piqued my interest when they released the vintage pajama set last season (I believe). I was a fan of the style, but wasn't really interested in the two colors they offered (light blue, white).

I was happy to stumble across Gap's version of the pajama set recently in a wider range of colors and patterns (buy for $41.97 w/code GAPFRIENDS through 11/11).

The fabric and sizing for both J.Crew and Gap's pajama sets are comparable. For reference, I tried on sz XXS in J.Crew and own the XS in Gap. J.Crew's top is longer in length, which I liked. I think Gap's shrunk when I put it in the dryer without thinking. It's too bad because Gap's was already shorter than J.Crew's to begin with. The inseam is roughly the same for both, ~32". They're also both made of thin cotton that may be see-through in lighter colors.

I didn't play it safe and chose the eye-popping orange-red set. DH complained that I was blinding him with the bright color, so I've been mostly wearing the pieces as separates instead as a full set. Take today's outfit with the pajama top for example. I literally stumbled out of bed, pulled on a sweater and jeans, then marched right out the door to start my day. Gotta love multi-purpose (for home and in public) items! Though I can't take the credit as I stole the styling idea from a J.Crew mannequin awhile back.
