Our first foray into lounge wear was in 2016 with Tillie flannel pajama pants. Our timing was slightly off, launching flannel at the beginning of the summer but they proved to be so popular that we sold out by Christmas. This year we tweaked the Tillie design, the colorway, the fabric, and drawstring. Plush we added shorts. The pajama shorts are poplin not flannel.
Tillie is the iconic fun house face of Asbury Park. Originally named for George C. Tilyou (1862-1914) of Coney Island’s Steeplechase fame. Asbury Park’s Tillie was painted on the Palace Amusements in 1955. The building fell into disrepair in the 1980s and demolished in 2004. The Tillie mural was saved and stored. A new version of Tillie lives on at the Wonder Bar.
