Dh wants to revamp his wardrobe but has no idea where to start, beyond Sainsbury's confused

He's 40, slightly overweight, tall! He's looking for casual wear, not work suits. What brands/shops do middle aged men use? He's not especially trendy, no interest in fashion but wants to look and feel a bit smarter. Any suggestions?

I like Boden stuff. DP (28 and not fuddy duddy in the least) likes their stuff. Also Zara has some nice things.

I like Jigsaw - there sales are very good. In John Lewis - JOHN LEWIS & Co, Kin, Selected Homme.
Well made boots, good fitting jeans and a properly fitting stylish coat are all worth investing in.

OntheSpike did a few posts about men's capsule wardrobes which you may find useful. Uniqlo and COS are worth a look.

Lands End?

They do both Tall and Big & Tall ranges. Large range of trouser lengths (27-36") or you can have them left unfinished.

Chinos come in 5 different 'fits':


I never pay full price - usually wait for the sale and/or use discount codes.
