DH likes Cos but he works in the arts so doesn't mind dressing like an architect!

Have you heard of Spoke? My husband literally buys all his clothes from there. Some Boden knitwear too. Crew clothing for casual shirts.

DH is fond of (and looks delicious in) Ted Baker. John Lewis own brand also do nice inoffensive things and Ralph Lauren (but some of the colours are horrible and it can be overly branded so you have to be careful.

But what is his look & what kind of lifestyle does he have? Dp gets most stuff online as he can’t find nice stuff on the high street and he likes to look fairly trendy but with good quality pieces.

He also wears a lot of band teeshirts.

DH is older than that but shops from lots of different places- Fat Face, All Saints (their plainer clothes mostly), Whistles, Reiss, Paul Smith, ASOS and Zara are probably his favourites.

DH is much older (and a very non standard size). He wears Levi jeans or chinos for work, with either custom shirts (cheaply made by Indian tailors in nice cottons) and a tie for meetings, or work-branded polo shirts for every day. He looks presentable in most settings, is always comfortable, and most important to him, doesn't have to think about it.

'Preppy' DH likes Hugo Boss for workwear, Ralph Lauren for polo's and casual shirts, Abercrombie & Fitch (for jeans and chinos mainly, and v neck sweaters) He also likes cashmere jumpers from Johnston's of Elgin and more country stuff from Le Chameau and John Norris

All Saints, Ted Baker, Reiss are all good.

There is a new start up website called Thread where you put in where you normally shop and what styles you like and it suggests things you might like. DH has found it has picked lots that he really likes but may have over looked.

Thanks for these, just spent an hour on thread

My DP tends to buy t-shirts and basics like chinos for work from ASOS.
He gets a lot of shirts from Uniqlo and Muji as they do nice linen ones for the summer (he gets hot and prefers light linen ones!)
For jeans he like Diesel ones which he normally gets from House of Fraser when they have a sale. He also has quite a few trendier patterned shirts from Linea at House of Fraser and French Connection.
