Are you concerned about the way your man dresses? Does he not worry about his appearance too much, but it is bothering you? There are ways you can help him to have a better wardrobe of clothes that will be comfortable and just as stylish as you.
Take Him Shopping
This can be one of the hardest ways to get him into fashiont. Not many men like shopping for clothes and they will just pick up any old thing and for them that will do. Combine the trip with something he does like shopping for, maybe a new game for his console or a video he has been wanting for a while. Then while you are out, pop into a store like John Henric US and let him see just how stylish menswear can be. Keeping the clothes shopping part of your trip as short as possible (and preferably online if you can) will keep your man happier, too.
Buy Clothes For Him
If going clothes shopping with your man is out of the question, get a tape measure and make a note of his sizes. Then you can go shopping yourself, but just make sure you buy from a store that takes returns. I actually do this all the time for my boyfriend - I love shopping and he appreciates me taking the guess work out of it, so it's a win for all of us!
Find things in the colors he likes and that will be comfortable for him to wear. Quality is more important than quantity, and when he looks good in what you have bought make sure to compliment him. It is important to ensure that your man feels comfortable in the outfit you purchased - you don't want him walking around feeling not-so-hot or awkward.
Every man should have a few basics in his wardrobe. When you are shopping for him make sure he has some well fitting shirts, a nice casual jacket, good quality cotton pants, some sweaters for winter and a pair of good quality leather shoes. These are all staples that every man should have in his closet, regardless of style / occupation. There is always something that will come up where he will need these items!
Show Him The Way
Men tend to be hoarders; everything might be useful one day and this extends to fashion too (I don't know if that is extremely true, but I know it does have some truth for me at least haha!). Have a clear-out of your wardrobe and go through his with him at the same time. Point out how the things that he has kept for years could be really useful to someone else, and that you will take them to a thrift shop, not put them in the bin.
Let him keep his sloppy Jo’s that he lounges around the house in. They can be a comfort to men, just like when women stay in their PJ’s all day sometimes (GUILTY!).
Does He Need Educating?
It could be that he wants to look as good as you do, but has no idea where to start. Then it is up to you to teach him. As well as imparting your knowledge, there are plenty of online sites and blogs that will give him tips too. He may make mistakes while he is trying to get it right, but encourage him rather than making him feel he has failed. Even a few shopping trips with you will help give him the idea of what things work and what doesn't.
Lay Out His Clothes
This might remind you of when you were a child and your mother did this for you. Well, to some extent that is exactly what it is like but now it is you doing it for your man. Unless you put something out they really do not like, most men will wear what has been laid out for them. They do this because they think women have more idea of what should be worn for the occasion, even if that is just a walk in the park.
I don't *actually* do that, but I normally give my boyfriend the run down of what is expected and sometimes I will lay it out all out for him (figuratively speaking) - sometimes he will know exactly what he needs to wear and will just run it by me to double check he is dressed appropriately
It might be a little work, but will all be worth it when you and your man are the best dressed couple ;)
