My Fiance is color blind, so unfortunately, if he and I want him to look like hes got a lick of sense, I have to shop for a good portion of his wardrobe, mostly the dress/work stuff though. Casual stuff is a lot easier for him to handle. Plus I am the bargain hunter of the two. So I tend to be able to find him really nice stuff for way less than he would have usually paid for it.

I have just started doing this for DH. Before we were married I had given him a button down or two as gifts but that was it. I wanted to help him with his work clothes … Many of his shirts, jackets, and pants were too big and somewhat dated (pleated pants!!!) but I didn’t want to over step my bounds. 

Then just a few weeks ago he said “wife, how do you feel about pleated pants? I think I’m the only one at work that wears them..”

and internally I said I HATE PLEATS!!!!! AAAAARRGGGHHH! But out loud I said “um… I don’t love the pleats. want me to get you some pants without?”

he agreed but then freaked out when the j crew box arrived. He said I’d turn him “metro” but he put on a shirt that FIT and pants with no pleats that FIT and you could tell he felt like a million bucks. And he looked hot!!!

So it worked out but I think if I had done this too early on he would have felt like I was trying to control/change him.

goldensmith:  I buy him socks/underwear/shirts/sweaters… everything I’ll get without him there unless it’s pants. He’s particular about the fit of pants so I want to make sure he’s comfortable.

I don’t buy him stuff very often, just every once in a while. I have to if I want him to have new clothes lol. He will not go shopping for himself, he will wear his clothes until they literally fall off of him.

I’ll buy DH socks, boxers, and t-shirts if I find something I think he’ll like or if he needs them and I happen to be out.  He’s more particular about jeans, shorts, pants, and shoes so I leave those items for him to pick out.

goldensmith:  I’ve been with my husband for 5 years but I don’t necessarily clothes shop for him. He has his own taste and is like me, prefers to try things on and pick out his own. The only thing I buy for him on a regular basis is underwear, socks and regular tshirts or workout shirts. I suppose this does fill up his wardrobe a bit though because he is more of a casual dresser. I guess it depends on his ‘style’. If it’s not complicated and he prefers jeans and a tshirt, check the sizes and buy him some clothes 🙂 he might like the surprise…just don’t buy anything too out of his ‘comfort zone’.

Fiance will shop for himself if he’s out, but he really should be in a big&tall size, so I will order some things on the internet as I find them.  He doesn’t internet shop for clothes.

I buy Fiance all his clothes, shoes, socks, and whatever else he needs lol. He hates shopping. Every now and then he’ll go but for the most part I do it all. Ill send him pictures of things while I’m at the stores and he always tells me to just pick whatever. So now I stopped sending him pictures and doing all on my own. 

Funny story though. He was wearing medium tops but has put on a little weight and I started buying him Large because I noticed the mediums weren’t fitting him. One day he got all butt hurt because he said ” I’m washing my own clothes now because you are shrinking all my clothes when you wash them” I said Umm, I’m not, they don’t fit anymore. look try this one on I moved up in size. He just laughed and said “Ohhh, well I need to cut out some beers then”

Yup. In fact, I just ordered a new pair of dress shoes for him last night. He doesn’t like to shop or spend money, so I have to do it or else he’d always be wearing the same 5 shirts to work or the same pair of PJ pants with a huge hole in the crotch (this is all true). Shopping happens when I evaluate his wardrobe to see what he needs, he randomly mentions needing something (but doesn’t follow through of course), and/or I spy a great sale opportunity. I love shopping though so I guess I don’t mind…:P

If I didn’t bring home stuff I don’t know that he would ever buy new things, it’s just not important to him.

I buy some, he buys some, and sometimes we go together. DH has great fashion (we both do).

I’ve never shopped for my Fiance and I don’t ever think I will – he’s a responsible adult and it’s not my job!

No. I definitely could since I know what he does and doesn’t like but I don’t feel the need to do his shopping for him. I don’t even like clothes shopping for myself lol. If I see a particular shirt that I think he’d like I might pick it up but other than that he does all his own shopping.

Yes! My mom has always bought my dad clothes, so it made sense for me to do the same. DH is actually pretty self sufficient in buying most of his clothes, and actually, he bought himself a lot of designer duds before we met. I have bought him shirts and pants and stuff although he has done the same for himself. I’m the one that gets him new underwear and socks though.
