@redheadedstranger:  My husband is the one that picks out most of my clothes, shoes, etc., so I’d say he knows me better than I know myself when it comes to fashion.

From a catalogue, probably not, but I would have problems doing the same thing.  Fabrics matter.  He would probably do a half decent job in a store, but I think there would be a few things he would grab that I would reject as well.

As for sizing, I try things on.  Sizes don’t always make sense!

@redheadedstranger:  Yes.. well not necessarily from a catalogue, I don’t think we’ve ever gotten a clothing one.. but he knows my tastes and has great taste of his own!

Most of my favorite pieces of clothing or accessories are things that he’s picked out for me. He encourages me to buy new clothes too (I’m the same way as you, love having nice things to wear/ hate shopping), so its nice when he makes the process easier to bear.

He knows I’m a J. Crew addict and he really can’t go wrong there.

My DH used to be terrible, but now he knows my taste to a tee. Sometimes it really surprises me because he isn’t really into a fashion himself at all so its weird for him to be picking out designer items with such accuracy lol.

@MrsBuesleBee:  +1 I’m a fellow JCrewaholic. My DH knows that he can always find me something in there without much effort.

Woah! I always thought my DH was a Special Snowflake!

He picks 90% of my clothing! He has GREAT taste!

Maybe a 7/10 accuracy since we like similar things but he’d like me to wear brighter clothes 😛 . Whenever I show him an item I like online (usually mixed in with other items since I browse a lot) he can guess which specific item I’m talking about. I want to get a cataloigue and tell him to pick me out an outfit now…

@redheadedstranger:  Nope, nope, nope. He is terrible at it, but I have a wide variety of things I like. He can pick out a dress that looks identical to one I have, but I hate what he  picked becuase it might have a pocket or something. We just chooses to stay out of my clothing matters, lol. The only thing he knows how to help me pick out for myself is shoes believe it or not.

I know his taste in clothing though very well, and I am confident when I go pick something out, he will love it for himself.

Awww he’s so sweet!! I think my fiance could pick out stuff I’d like from a catalogue, but he’d never actually buy me clothes to try and surprise me. I think it would make him so nervous! One year he got me a gift card to one of my favorite stores as a stocking stuffer. That’s the closest he’s gotten 🙂

My SO has never bought me an article of clothing. I really have no idea if he would be able to pick something out or not. He’s made a comment about an outfit every paycheck before – like OP, I always find something else more worthwhile than clothes to spend money on.

He did help me pick out a pair of shoes once and was super proud about that for awhile. He was like, “Show your mom your new shoes and tell her I picked them out!”

I would trust my FI to buy me “comfy” clothes, but not my work clothes. He knows my love of all things yoga pants and hoodies.

I’m pretty sure if you asked my FI what HE is wearing right now he’d have to look down check out what he’s wearing before he could tell you. He has no clue. That’s fine. I love shopping! LOL. He will notice certain things though from time to time but I don’t know if he could really pick something out.

I don’t think my husband really knows what I like. He has never bought me anything and we are at the mall he is fun to have along for shopping but he has never pointed to anything that he thinks I might like.

He *might* be able to pick something out.  He hates clothes shopping but will often come with me.  I always ask his opinion on things as I’m deciding what to try on, so I feel like he should have an idea of what I like……pick it out on his own though?  I don’t know…
