If you like the comfort and elegance of a caftan you can start making your own with this tutorial. These can be made for men or women although I suppose some men might not like to wear them. I have seen them in stores for men and in a couple of movies men have worn them. I love them because they are so incredibly comfortable to wear around the house. The instructions to make this were shared on Weekend Designer by Don. Super easy to make and you don’t even need an actual pattern, you can make several in all different print or solid color fabric. I like a white french terry with gold and black trim myself. You can use light weight fabric for warmer months and a heavier fabric for winter.
