Unless you guys workin a place that has a strict dress code or his sloppy appearance is having an effect on his job performance, I don’t really see a problem with him wearing a shirt that is too big on him because it is not his. Maybe he just got behind on laundry or thinks it is comfortable. I could understand your frustration if he constantly bought his own clothes 2 sizes too big and thought that was the size he needs. Not to sound harsh but this really sounds like you should laugh it off appologize and move on.

Yeah I agree with slicey, this just doesn’t sound like a big deal. We always have to buy the FI’s shirts a couple sizes too big so they are long enough for him (he is 6′ 4″ and lean, hard to find normal shirts that fit him). Besides I wear the FI’s shirts to bed and they look huge on me, so I really can’t comment on his baggy shirts.

I can relate, my Fiance has clothes from 8th grade that are size XL–he’s a medium or maaybe a large. It drives me crazy that he even owns them–they don’t fit him and they look awful! I’ve been slowly trying to get rid of them, one at a time 🙂

Don’t be his mom, nit-picking over his clothes will only get you guys into a fight. He may look sloppy, but it’s his business! Sometimes i wear jeans and t-shirts to work and look like a college student, but I’d be pretty irritated if my husband tried to tell me how to dress. I’m an adult, ya know? If you’re having a crabby day, go for a walk or run after work so you don’t come home all wound up! That always works for me.

Yeah, even if you are having a bad day that is no excuse to yell at your Fiance about it. That is YOUR problem, so deal with it by running (like ejs suggested), taking a bubble bath, or whatever you do to relax. Definitely apologize and do something special for him tonight (like cook his favorite meal or something).

I strongly dislike about a third of my FI’s clothes. He is just uber prep and I don’t care for that look at ALL. And I’ve let him know it. But we just kind of accept that we have different styles. There is only 1 think that I refuse to be seen with him in, and other than that I just let it go and let him do his thing.

My Fiance isnt the snappiest dresser. He drives me crazy, he has not grasped the concept of matching or ironing his clothes. I had to pick them out for him when we first moved in together.

My poor Fiance has the most pitiful and outdated wardrobe I’ve ever seen, and very little sense of personal style–although he has good taste in what I wear. He’s been asking me, since we started dating, to go through his closet and dispose of clothes that I deem unsuitable.

Whenever I mention that maybe we should go shopping for him, he says it’s a waste of money when we have so many wedding expenses right now. Embarassed

So, I’m happy to look at my guy in his goofy clothes for now, because at this point, it’s not that important. I kind of think it’s cute.
