We are pretty equal I think. Neither of us spends tons of money on clothes but we both like to look well groomed or smart casual. I used to dat eone guy who spent longer in the bathroom than me combing his hair and getting ready etc and I hated it, don't like men like that, drives me nuts!
Nope. I like dressing up; he lives in scruffy jeans. I like shopping; he buys maybe one new pair of jeans every three years (if I'm lucky). He likes polo shirts, for goodness' sake.
He's got a lovely figue and I do wish he'd dress it up a bit more. He wears either scruffy jeans and a plo shirt, scruffy jeans and a t-shirt, scruffy jeans and a checked shirt, or shorts and a t-shirt. For work he always wears black trousers and either a white shirt or a pale blue shirt. If he has to 'dress up' he will wear jeans and a shirt or black trousers and a shirt. That's IT.
Nope I once managed to get DH to buy a shirt from a shop that wasn't next or m&s ...once He has bought 30 pairs of exactly the same shoes over the 10 yrs we have been together I prefer a bit more variation in my life!
My DH is still wearing the same shirt he bought for our honeymoon 10 years ago!! He also has shirts/jumpers/t shirts which are years and years old. He has zero interest in clothes and style whatsoever. He can look really smart for work during the week but at weekends he always wears football shirts and a particular pair of scruffy trainers he's had for years which I shout at him to get off if we're going out!
