Smarter Style: Styling Your Guy

Posted by   + Show Post

Sunday is Father's Day, and there's a good chance that at least part of your guy's gift is some new clothes. Of course the classic gift is a tie, but polos, shorts and dress shirts are pretty popular as well.
This whole thing made me wonder: Am I the only person who pretty much styles my husband all the time? A friend of ours once remarked on how my son was like a little bitty version of my husband, and I started laughing and explained that the same person bought all their clothes, so of course they dressed the same!

It's not that my husband can't buy his own clothes and look perfectly fine...he did for 28 years before I met him! It's that I just like to buy stuff for him because I know what will make him look even cuter and what he will like...pretty much all his favorite clothes are, in fact, courtesy of me. Also, like many guys he doesn't want to spend any money on himself. If he's not going to be dressed in rags, I'm the one who will be buying him new things. And, of course, he hates to shop.

Do you buy your husband's clothes or does he shop on his own?

We shop together. He buys his own clothes but likes my opinion.

He usually picks out his own clothes.  He isn't "stylish", but he definitely is picky about what colors and cuts he will wear.  He's also really tall, but the height mostly comes from his upper body....so it's hard to find shirts that fit him properly.

Quoting Mrs.Pool2Be:

I usually buy his clothes.  But I know what he likes to wear and I would never buy him something to try and change his style.

 This is how I was when I was married.

We usually shop together, he might ask my opinion but in the end it's up to what he likes, i Personally wouldn't try to change his style. Just like He wouldn't try to change mine =)
