I have to correct Mr. Shef sometimes. If it were up to him he would wear his torn up T with his highwater khakis and black tennis shoes to a wedding…. He has gotten better over the years though. Mostly because I have convinced him to get rid of the truely ugly stuff.

Fiance honestly thinks red and green are okay to wear together during any time of the year, so I totally get it :). Sometimes I’ll suggest outifts when I tell him about events, something like ‘Oh, mom invited us over for a Christmas party. You should totally wear that really cute blue button up and your khakis.’ 

It’s probably not the right approach for everyone, lol, but it works for us :).

I have found that tons of positive reinforcement works to a certain extent (“Have I mentioned recently how amazingly hot you look in that button-down shirt and slacks?”), but yeah, there are struggles. The last time we went to the Symphony I all but had to resort to my angry voice to get him to change out of jeans. Jeans. To the Symphony. We live in a very casual city, but speaking as someone who performed with orchestras for many years, just no.
