Do you do all of the clothes shopping for your DH or S/O?

My husband likes to dress nice but he hates shopping. In the past few years he has probably only bought himself maybe 2 shirts. One was a sports t shirt he liked. I buy all his clothes including socks and underwear! He picks out his own clothes everyday or what he is going to wear but he just never shops for them. Am I the only one like this or is this common?

  • Actually my husbands the same BUT no I dont do all his shopping. His mom is forever buying him new clothes when she sees him dressed badly. He has nice clothes, but you know for some reason if he can wear his favorite holey shirt to a softball game, he will. When he does the next week she brings over 5 new shirts and pants lol. I dont mind, it helps me out.

  • My husband would never get himself new clothes if I didn't buy them. Just not something that's even on his radar.

  • My hubby pratically has to to beg me for new cloths. He does construction most of the time and he wears levi's . Just the thought of spending 20-30 bucks on a pair of jeans for him to ruin just kills me.

  • No, I might buy him clothes for Christmas and his birthday, but he buys his clothes. He knows what he wants to wear, I just know what i want him to wear.

  • nope. i can buy the socks and underoos, but nothing else. he's too picky. the only thing i insist on is being with him when he gets his pants sized/measured..he always gets them hemmed/cuffed too short. i may go along with him on a shopping spree (yes..because he will spend up to $1000 on less than 7-8 pieces), but in the end, its he who will be wearing the clothing.

  • Nope - my hubs likes to buy his own clothes. I have bought him some shirts over the years and he did like most of 'em. (he can be a bit picky ).
