I've always been brought up calling it a house coat but the wife says she's never heard it called that and it's a dressing gown, am I alone here, anyone else call it a house coat?

A dressing gown is a bath robe that ties at the front....a housecoat was worn by ladies to do the housework in and is fastened with a zip or buttons

Yeah I've seen that after a quick google, also looks like a lot of people have used the term for a dressing gown , looks like mums/nans passed it down

At first I was like "who the **** is that?"

And then I thought "hypocrite"

And then I changed my avatar back

Although I'm still getting an awesome bottle opener...

Housecoat? Dressing gown?

You are all common as muck in your fleece, terry towelling, flannelette and quilted cotton.

I wear a peignoir.

I was also going to wait until I got it, but the amount of times I have gone back to a thread and thought to myself "I'm sure I posted in here" it was getting a bit annoying

House coat, or as we say in Glasgow...hoose coat.

Housecoat was always used by family years ago, I call it a dressing gown but I think house coat is more appropriate, as in this weather when i get home I swap my outdoor coat for the dressing gown!!

Your avatar is more strongly associated with you, I change mine a fair bit anyway.
