Help me keep my husband warm

It's a matter of common sense that if you're cold in the evening, it's more economical to put a jumper on than turn up the heating. The problem is that my darling husband doesn't like wearing clothes that are either tight across his chest or have to be pulled down over his head. So warm sweaters are out. He also doesn't like wearing outdoor coats indoors, for which I hardly blame him.
Lately, he's taken to wearing his fleecy dressing gown round the house over the rest of his clothes. This has given me the idea of getting something akin to a smoking jacket
for Christmas. The problem is that when I search for actual smoking jackets, all that turns up are fancy-dress-costume shops. These all look the part, but I have the feeling they're probably made of thin cotton so as to look the part without being expensive. I don't want him to look like Sherlock Holmes - I want him to be warm.
Can anyone suggest something which might fit the bill without being too prohibitively expensive?
