Katz Pajamas JNL was designed by Jeff Levine and released by Jeff Levine. Katz Pajamas JNL contains 2 styles and household plan choices. p > According to Wiktionary, 'the feline's pajamas' was a slang expression created by Thomas A. Dorgan, the widely known reporter, cartoonist and sportswriter of that age.

The expression ended up being popular in the U.S. in the 1920s, as the word 'feline' was used as a term to explain the unconventional flappers from allure era.

This was integrated with the word pyjamas (a fairly brand-new women's style during that time) to form a phrase used to explain something that is the very best at what it does, hence making it extremely looked for and desirable.

Wikipedia includes that Dorgan was the very first to use the terms 'twenty-three, skidoo', and 'yes, we have no bananas', 'apple sauce' and 'solid ivory', which also entered into the slang of the 'Roaring Twenties'.

Katz Pajamas JNL is a condensed piece serif typeface based on the title lettering for the 1944 sheet music 'Pretty Kitty Blue Eyes', thus the pun-laden font name admiring this little bit of verbal Americana along with making the pajamas a set owned by Mr. Katz instead of the trendy feline.

Available in both routine and oblique variations.
