Would you fancy helping to style dh? He's about 5"9 and very broad shouldered and chest too. He's also bald and I do think that affects the way he dresses.

He's in a bit of a rut and mostly wears baggyish jeans with converse style trainers, a simple tshirt and a hoody.
When he goes out he wears jeans again and a checkered shirt, smart shoes.

I think he's feeling quite down and desperate about his style because he's just gone and bought a leather jacket!
Any ideas for what may suit him?

I have a few suggestions.

Maybe trying a few more tailored items to see what suits his body shape and flatters, rather than wearing something that just fits, which is what my DH used to do. Grey Fox is a good blog for men. Items are often expensive, but it is good for styling, colours and is not about following fashion. Have a look at Landsend for basics, large department stores for brands not otherwise on his radar and just have fun trying stuff on.

DH is similar (including the bald head!)

Casually he wears a lot of (non team specific) rugby shirts with jeans which suit his build. Jacket wise a well cut blazer - he has a lovely dark blue tweed one for example - works really well. Ted Baker, style wise, often have nice looks although we tend to get a lot of his clothes in Debenhams as they are well cut for big shoulders!

Branded jumpers like Superdry, Abercrombie & Fitch and RAlph Lauren are pleasing to my eyes for DH. smilesmile

Have no idea not helpful as dh is poss more stylish than me grin he does love the website "thread" though: you put in the sorts of things/brands/budget you like and it makes suggestions. Maybe worth a go?
