Especially one at a somewhat reasonable price?

Try Ross, that's where I purchased mine.

A couple of Christmases ago I got a robe for my wife at TJ Maxx. It is Nautica, very plush and heavy duty, and she reminded me again the other day how much she loves it. Inventory varies at TJ, of course, so YMMV, though around the holidays they usually stock up with as much as they can.

I have a very nice terry cloth robe from LL Bean (http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?categoryId=502852&catalogId=1&storeId=1&langId=-1&nav=s1-ln). I'm not sure which of the models it is. It is very soft, quite thick and resultingly quite warm (great for winters, not so great for summer). I've had it for several years and have been very happy with it.

Since mine is over fifteen years old, I am not sure if it was expensive or not. However, it is still holding up well. It was purchased from Lands End and I like it and so does my wife.

I bought mine from LL Bean but I'm a big guy and needed a tall.

Try a swanky hotel. :biggrin:
Also, it's definitely a good idea to check both Marshalls and TJ Maxx. I picked up a nice Nautica robe there a while back. I'm sure with a little hunting, you can find a great robe at a great price.
Other than that, if you've got any outlet malls nearby, I'd say just go to one of those and look for specials this weekend (Columbus Day Weekend). I'm not certain what brands are better than others, but if you look at the workmanship and feel the robe, you'll definitely be able to tell which is made better.

Ditto Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Filene's Basement if you have one.
Sierra Trading Post is usually a good resource for discounted clothing, if you're willing to go mail order. They have a few terry robes just now, including this one. (http://www.sierratradingpost.com/Product.aspx?baseno=16453&cdf=AffinitySale)

Lands ENd has 'em. IIRC around $60; I'm not sure how that compares to elsewhere. Their quality is generally pretty good on other stuff. Nothing special, but decent.

Four Seasons :biggrin:
We were looking at some Ralph Lauren terry cloth robes just today, and didn't like them. The $120 price tag had nothing to do with it, they just didn't feel good.
