DH is pretty clueless when it comes to clues but I've told him that we are going shopping for a whole new wardrobe on Saturday because I'm sick of seeing him in the same t shirt ( he has had it since university)!
Problem is, I don't really know what he needs to buy! I want him to look smart casual but comfortable. We have small DC, so it needs to be soft play/bum change compatible and minimal ironing required!
He is happy to defer all decisions to me because he is clueless, bless him. He does fancy a smarter, more 'put together' look though.
We are off to a large shopping centre on Saturday so have access to all the usual places.
He is 37, quite conservative, 6 ft 4 and a 36 inch waist. He has quite muscular build and hates slogan t shirts. Normally wears jeans, converse and a rugby shirt.
DH is the same - he has no interest but could see he was stuck. IMO It's less the brand and more how the outfit is assembled.
So the new rules are: - casual shorts with low socklets, not sports or black socks. He won't entertain bare feet! - smart jacket, eg blazer or casual suit jacket for evenings/lunch out - clean jeans, not scruffy unless vegging at home - rugby and polo shirts fine, if ironed - v-neck jumpers good, e.g. Lacrosse style - Sleeveless gilet better than fleeces if going somewhere.
That said, my DH was a bad case so he needed rules. . Appearances just happen to be last on his list of priorities!
