The silk is very good quality and is pretty thick. It came folded and wrapped in plastic.
My husband is very pleased with the robe and the quality. It makes a great summer robe, when a heavier robe is too much, and is good for lounging in as well.
First things's first. The robe is quality 16mm silk. You don't measure silk in thread count (it would always be higher than cotton since silk is so fine!). You should always look for a "mm" rating for the silk. That's not millimeter, but is the momme weight of the silk. A momme is as far as I know a silk only measurement. You take a piece of silk 45 inches wide and 100 yards long and weigh it in pounds. That weight in pounds is the momme. So 16mm means a 45 inch wide by 100 yard piece of this quality silk would weigh 16 pounds (aprox. 2 ounces per square yard). Higher quality silk clothing is often in the 14mm--16mm (for clothing, bedding is often expected to be higher). You can find higher mm silk too but the price goes up. A good 16mm silk robe is going to be $150-$200! Silk is an "exotic" material that is expensive!
Now the 16mm equates to the quality of the silk, but doesn't say anything to quality of the sewing. But the seams are done well. There is reinforcement in the shoulders and where the sleeves attach. The seams are straight. As far as I'm concerned, the quality of the fabric itself and the robe as a whole is great! The style is a pretty standard robe--doesn't stand out, but it fits and wears well.
If you're buying silk for the first time, look into the care. The tag says hand wash only and that's what I suggest. You're not supposed to wash silk too often or it will fall apart. The higher the mm, the more durable the silk. I suggest you google "how to wash silk" to find out more about it's care.
I think this silk robe is definitely worth the trouble! It's light, luxurious, and feels perfect against the skin in any temperature. Silk helps keep your heat in in the winter and in the summer silk absorbs sweat and it evaporate for natural cooling. This robe and silk in general is really nice for loungewear!
The big issue is the packaging. Geoffrey Beene just has the robe in a clear plastic bag! Then amazon threw that bag in a packing plastic bag and shipped it to me! I don't suggest you direct ship this as a gift. It's totally underwhelming as packaged. I really think Geoffrey Beene should have put it in a nice box! The product doesn't seem nearly as nice because of the packaging and I definitely wouldn't want to give it as a gift without re-packaging!
So I really like the robe. It feels nice, looks nice, and is super comfortable!
Despite the light weight of the robe, it is very warm but still highly breathable thanks to the silk composition. The fabric weave is a charmeuse, meaning that the outside has a sheen while the inside is more dull. It's very similar to the lining on men's jackets and the like.
There are a few features that I really like about this robe.
First is the belt. It is sturdily sewn into place in the middle back which helps prevent missing belts altogether. On my spouse's other silk robe, he has shoved his belt into one pocket to keep from losing it which, over the last ten years, has resulted in a permanently wrinkled belt that looks a bit scuzzy when he wears it. Sewing the belt into place only makes sense and it's a small touch that does wonders for the garment as a whole.
The next feature I really like are the offset pockets. Pockets on robes are almost useless, but they almost always seem to be in an odd spot, like the front and center of your thighs rather than more along the side of the leg. These pockets are set off to the side a little more than usual for robes and the top is even on a bias so you can get your hands in and out with ease and little to no stress from the pockets pulling on the main fabric of the robe.
My only complaint with this product is the packaging. I've seen others mention the same thing, but the packaging on a robe that costs this much should really be thought out a bit more. Mine came in a flimsy plastic sleeve with the robe folded around a standard cardboard square. Granted, I wasn't expecting much more, but I was just so surprised they couldn't find classy packaging to match the classiness of the robe. First impressions are very important for consumers.
