What do your fellas wear on a day to day basis and then going out of a weekend for pub lunch basis? My H is in desperate need of new clothes, he lives in the same trackies, hoodies & trainers and I'm sick to the back teeth of seeing them. He hates shopping, and hates fashion so tight fitting chinos & shirts are no nos. A couple of years back I bought him a gorgeous Franklin & Marshall tracksuit which he practically threw back in my face the ungrateful swine. Said he didn't want to look a twat with labels on show
Can you help me shop for him? Needs jeans and tees mainly as I can get trackies at JD no problem. Oh and not hugely expensive either as he ruins everything with car grease

If he's not going work, it's usually jeans, t-shirts and jumpers - he only wears tracky bottoms if he's doing work round the house, or after a bath in the evening (different ones to the DIY ones!) MrDD also hates shopping and rarely buys himself clothes!
My H wears jeans from River Island (skinny fit, as he's an emo), a t-shirt, usually by Iron Fist, and a black hoody. Shoe wise, he wears Converse.
New Look often have nice stuff for men.

AK I wish my H would wear something trendy like Converse but he has really fat flat feet. He lives in Reebok workouts.

My H is a jeans and polo shirt kind of man. In the winter its jeans and a jumper. He shops at Superdry, Aubin & Wills (although they have shut down now so he is a bit bereft and can't bring himself to enter to enter Jack Wills for fear of bumping into most of the girls he teaches), Crew, Howies and Timberland and would never be seen dead in skinny jeans/ anything fashionable and also hates labels/ writing on things (took him years to be convinced that a tiny Superdry logo on a polo shirt wasn't chavy). He has a couple of "going out" shirts from Hollister and Crew but tbh we go out so rarely now the are kind of languishing in wardrobe. Mens shopping is so dull!

H is the same as D really. He lives in scruffs. He won't wear Converse at all. When we go out or at weekends, he has a pair of Adidas trainers, likes RL, All Saints, Diesel and Lyle and Scott. He wears GStar, Levis or FIretrap jeans. x

Levi Jeans, polo's, gap jumpers.
He wears diesel, Zara, Reiss his shoes are converse mainly. Has a smart pair for going out from Zara
He never wears trackies outside of home always jeans or navy chinos

My H lives in dark jeans, timberlands or rigger boots and a polo shirt or if he's not working he will have dark jeans, brown dealer boots and a checkered short sleeve shirt of some sort. He's not in to fashion but did ask for a Barbour coat for Christmas surprisingly.
Men are hard work! My H will normally wear what ever I buy him but when went to Australia I bought him some vans to wear with shorts and he point blank refused to even try th on! They went back.

My H loves Zara, Reiss, All Saints, occasionally French Connection. He is the opposite to your fella though, loves shopping loves labels loves fashion lol. The opposite end of the spectrum is equally as annoying hun lol xx

H wears suits for work and then usually changes into shorts and a polo around the house. He's often in a polo shirt or casual shirt and shorts or jeans. We get most of his polo shirts in Gap, Debenhams, American Eagle Outfitters and he has a few designer ones. He gets his Jeans from Tommy Hilfiger and Diesel- apparently the only places that do a decent cut for his short legs bless him. Shirts are from all over- he tends to buy himself expensive ones but I have picked up lovely shirts in H&M, Gap, etc and he happily wears them. I always look in sales for his clothes. He won't do chinos either as he says he doesn't want to look like my dad

My h is a smart jeans polo shirt kinda guy mostly and a shirt or smart jumper for going out or pub. If ever I manage to get him into baggy jeans or anything then I get accused of trying to dress him like a Manc. When we have the money he loves his trainers, trainers to him are knackered as soon as they have a crease in them. And obviously he owns the odd trackie he is a scouser!
He is like your h, skinny jeans or printed tshirts like you get for your L are a complete no no. He would not follow fashion.

My H is super smart for work, suit, shirt tie etc.
At weekends chilling he has jeans which are loose fit with t-shirts - Superdry is his fave at the moment but isnt keen nirmally on labels across the front. Or a polo from Next.
To go out he typically wears slim fit dark shirts and jeans with a belt and nice shoes.
He is VERY fussy with his clothing. I have a ton of stuff to ebay as he wears things once then goes off of them.
What sort of shape, size is D?
28/02/2013 at 11:20
He's probably a 34 waist, 34 leg, XL or L in tops. He's got big arms so slim fit tops are a no. I've been looking at these but think the arms might be too tight

My H wears shirts and jumpers/sweatshirts with jeans and chinos mainly.
I've got him some nice stuff from Whitestuff. They do plain jumpers in various colours.
I like that polo shirt but my H won't wear polo shirts and doesn't like short sleeved shirts (don't ask me why but will not contemplate even trying them on). He will wear t shirts.
He's in his mid forties and as we've got older we've noticed that there's not much choice if you don't want to be dressing like a trendy 20 year old or a 70 year old.

He sounds like my C. How tall?
28/02/2013 at 11:29
Cheers chick. He won't wear graphics like those tees, the polos are similar to what he has already so that's good. He's got a couple of chunky knits I've bought him and wears so I guess it's not all bad. Will look in store at the jeans and have already ordered some new trainers for him.
I like that tshirt. C would wear that.
28/02/2013 at 11:30
About my height, couple inches bigger but not much bigger than 6ft.

Can you ease him into things slowly. H used to be a bit reserved about trying new fashion things cos of his age, but he now wears trendier stuff without looking silly.
