Yes.
I would go mad if DH threw away any of my clothes.

ALittleBitOfMagic Mon 06-May-13 18:29:03

Just snorted at if I didn't he'd look homeless gringringrin

ALittleBitOfMagic Mon 06-May-13 18:28:11

Yes I think I'll definitely stop washing them . He will also be getting a few new pairs for his birthday next weekgrin

I throw out old clothes all the time, if I didn't we'd have a house full of everything Dh ever wore. The first time I bought a whole set of new underpants for him after we got married and threw out the ones he'd had since high school, they were hanging onto the waistbands by a thread. I had to show him how bad they were he didn't see it. Since then he doesn't care, I replace stuff for him all the time. If I didn't he'd look homeless.
Shopping for new clothes isn't even on his radar.

Stop washing them. Let him do it himself. If they do get into the washing machine, give them a jolly good t-u-g when you empty it to get your stuff in. grin

dp has a god awful pair of jeans that are massive, fall down when hes carrying anything and show his arse to the neighbours while he's gardening. but he loves them and I wouldnt throw them away or "lose" them because If he did the same thing with my fave pants if bs furious. I just cringe inwardly

Would you be happy with him throwing out items of your clothing which he didn't like?

NotAnotherPackedLunch Mon 06-May-13 17:19:26

Could they be left at the bottom of the dirty laundry basket for an extended period of time as all the loads are too full for an extra pair of heavy jeans? wink
Perhaps he won't miss them for months...

if you'd be okay with him throwing your favourite piece of clothing away, go for it.

Snorbs Mon 06-May-13 16:59:00

Would you have a problem if he decided there were items of your clothing he didn't like and so threw away?

FoofFighter Mon 06-May-13 16:58:06

My partner has a pair of jeans I hate. He looks like Grandpa Walton in them. He won't get rid of them.

If he asks where they are I say they are just going round in the washing machine wink he's going to cotton on soon enough sad surprised he hasn't already actually [thicko]

You need to tell him that you think he should throw them out. They are his jeans, and yes you WBU if you threw out his clothes without his permission or knowledge.

If my partner 'lost' my jeans in the wash I'd be livid.

ALittleBitOfMagic Mon 06-May-13 16:54:45

No . He wears them ^in public^blush

SmellsLikeTeenStrop Mon 06-May-13 16:52:43

that depends, are they his DIY/gardening jeans?

ALittleBitOfMagic Mon 06-May-13 16:49:46

*now saggy at the bum

ALittleBitOfMagic Mon 06-May-13 16:49:22

They really need to go in the bin . The "ripped" knee is now a big hole in the knee so when he sits down his boney hairy knee pokes out . They are too big and are not saggy at the bum .

WIBU to "lose" them ?
