Poor dp has hardly any clothes, he still wears some things he had when we first met, nearly 10 years ago.

He is blonde, blue eyes looks very nice in blue, about 5"10 and muscular but not yuckily so and not yet 30.

He needs new clothes and shoes. He needs some smart shoes and trainers, currently has these awful Airwalk trousers and even awfuler clumpy great big shoes with a huge sole and awful metal going across the front. He also needs trousers tops and a couple of smart shirts. Basically a new wardrobe. All on a limited budget. Can anyone advise me I am pretty hopeless, and would really appreciate some help.

Thank you bangtastic, I liked the shirts, not many of the smart trousers though and I doubt he'd wear the jumpers, the tennis shoes are nice but the smart ones a bit too smart and shiny iyswim. Dp is very casual, often wont even wear t shirts with buttons at the top hmm

Could also be worth looking on ebay for better quality but used stuff, or is that a waste of time?

I suggest taking him to River Island, they have some nice trendy things but not too young. I think some of the Matalan suggestions look a bit old for a guy who's not quite 30. Next is also good for basics.
We need before and after pics of your DP!

Sounds just like mine grin

Definitely worth looking on eBay too, some brilliant bargains to be had on there!

Oh yes to River Island, will drag him in kicking and screaming. Sometimes it's easier to just buy stuff without him there. If I take him he often flat refuses to try stuff on that I just know will look fab. Miserable git he is

Peacocks is quite good. Much cheaper than River Island and fairly young and funky.
