Do you shop for your FI/husbands clothes? We’ve been together for almost six years and I only have for gifts for special occasions. But shopping really isn’t his thing and it’s been a long time since he’s bought new clothes. So I was thinking I might go shopping for him. This is his busy season for work so I would likely go by myself. Is this something you bees do? Or is this weird? I’d really like him to have some nice clothes to wear on our upcoming honeymoon.

Usually, I do except for things like shorts. He is SUPER particular about the way his shorts fit, so I don’t buy them. But, I usually buy everything else.

I buy a lot of DH’s clothes for him, I buy all DHs socks and underwear and most of his casual clothes, he does his own shopping for dress/work clothes but he ‘needs’ me to come with him. It’s really funny, he hates shopping and when we’re both going I will suggest we split up so we can get out of the mall faster (I shop for me, he for himself) NOPE, he needs me to come with him but forget about him shopping with me.
I like that he values my opinion – i just wish he’d give me one on my clothes sometimes.

Not really, but when it came to shopping for our honeymoon – my opinion really mattered. I picked out a couple nicer shirts, and then some of his normal polo shirts. He got new shorts, swim trunks, and casual tees, and sandals, too. It was pretty much a whole new wardrobe by the time we were done, ha.
But normally, he buys his own clothes. He’s comfy in a polo shirt and his AZ jeans… so he’ll buy them whenever he feels like it. But, there have been times that I’ve picked out some clotehs for him but mainly as gifts.

I buy most of his clothes by accident- I just see stuff that he’d like while I’m out shopping for me 😉

No. He likes shopping and is very particular. Buying for him is a huge headache.

I’m not even married yet and I sometimes shop for him. It hadn’t even occurred to me that this might be weird. I’m mostly an online shopper and abuse the heck out of the free shipping privileges with my Target card. We’ve both gained enough weight to need new clothing sizes, so when I noticed his underwear was practically choking the life out of him, I whipped out the Target card and ordered some. His t-shirts were getting embarassingly snug, so when I was ordering stuff for myself from Old Navy I added a few shirts for him. Added bonus is that I qualified for free shipping since the total went over $50 thanks to his stuff. It helps that he’s a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, so it’s not as if I have to worry that he won’t like the clothes I choose. He’s really bad about motivating himself to go shopping, which I understand because I hate it too, and he hasn’t yet mastered the obsessive art of online shopping like I have. It makes more sense for me to take five minutes out of my day to order things for him rather than have him wearing uncomfortably small clothes.

no. we have been together for 10 years, married for almost 2 years and I’ve never shopped for clothes for him.
1) he is very picky
2) he is sooo tall so certain brands fit him differently
3) he actually likes to shop for himself

We’re engaged and I buy a lot of his clothes. He hates shopping (as do I) so when I’m out I’ll pick him up stuff also. Especially when it comes to nice clothes. He’ll usually buy his work jeans when he happens to be at walmart and knows he needs more pants. But other than that, I’ll get him stuff. He appreciates it and I don’t think anyone would be offended or find it weird. The only time I was taken aback about a girl buying guys clothes was when my FI’s brother’s new girlfriend (of like a month) went out and bought him a whole new wardrobe because the clothes he was wearing weren’t good enough for her to be seen with him. She then handed him the bill and asked him to pay her back. LOL, please.

That is hilariously bad! I can’t even comprehend how she thought that was a good idea. It’s like a backwards Pretty Woman or something.

My husband will wear socks, boxer briefs, and under-shirts FAR beyond their useful life so I throw them out when I encounter ripped/stained ones in the laundry and replace them as needed. For clothes that the rest of the world sees he usually handles shopping himself.

DH hates shopping, and the only time he actually goes clothes shopping for himself is when there is a dire need for something (i.e he’s tired of me nagging him to buy new shoes).
If I’m out shopping for myself, I usually will browse over the men’s stuff and see if anything catches my eye. If there’s something he needs, I usually try to make him go buy it, but I will go shopping with him…he has zero fashion sense, lol.

We are engaged, but I would say that I’ve been shopping for him since about a year into our relationship. I buy him most of his clothes, mostly because if I see something I like for him, I don’t want to pass it up or wait to tell him to go back and get it.
It’s not that he doesn’t have good fashion sense on his own… but let’s just say that he’s got a much better wardrobe since we’ve been dating, and leave it at that 😛 The clothing that I like to see him in (which he does love, just never actually shopped for himself- sweaters, chinos, etc.) I would buy him for presents, “just because,” etc. and eventually it replaced his entire closet *lol*

I’ll buy something as a gift, or if I see something I’ll send it to him to buy on his own. If he asked me to go shopping for him I would, but otherwise he’s more than capable.
