What's your SO's clothing style?

I pretty much just shop for him and buy him what I want him to wear.

Ahh...another good boy. Appreciate him, because there are a lot of men out there who won't wear what they're told.
My husband is a suit and tie kind of guy. On casual Friday he goes without tie and jacket.

On the weekends he wears jeans with a nice shirt or sweater.

jeans with holes, tennis shoes and american eagle or abercrombie shirts...and american eagle or abercrombie hats.
He loves trendy boutique type stores. Stick him in NYC with plenty of money, and he'll be more than happy. That's why I always called him my gay boyfriend.

But I am glad I don't have to 'dress' him and he can take care of himself in that way..he even finds really nice trendy clothes for me as well and encourages me to buy everything and their mamas.
My s/o is 37. He works in IT and can dress very casually for work. For pants, he wears jeans, cargo pants, or cords. Most are loose, but not super baggy, too long, or hanging below his ass. For shirts, he has button-downs, tees, and various pullover shirts, again all are relaxed fitted, but the right size for his body. I've never seen him wear a sweater. His look is kind of alternative geek. Hee. His tees usually reference Linux, Pacman, or beer.
Location: Southern NH

If a news story breaks and no one on the Internet comments, did it really happen?

Super-casual dinner or barbecue at my parents' house (with no one except immediate family present) - okay. That's about it. Anyplace else - not okay.

He does like getting dressed up though, and has a bunch of really nice tailored shirts made just for him, as well as a nice jacket from the same tailor. He also likes more relaxed hawaiians and slinky/sexy club clothes. He's 34.
Lots and lots of fine 3b-ish hair.
DevaCurl currently, but exploring new products.
Love the hair!

Guys have been hitting on him since he was a teenager. He used to joke that he used to hang out in gay bars so he could have all his drinks bought for him

He's so picky about his clothes, that we were together like 2 or 3 years before I would even think about buying him clothes. And even THEN I make sure I keep the receipt so he can take them back if he wants. Last year we were Christmas shopping for the kids in the family, and he totally disappears, and come back with a jacket that he's buying.

Lately though he's been working so much he hasn't spent any time on himself. He hasn't bought any clothes, and he's been putting no effort into himself - I told him he was letting himself go But it's probably b/c I'm pregnant - maybe it's his version of gaining 30lbs.

The only thing that bothers me about his attire is hats. He's going to be 30 in August, and he STILL wears baseball caps. That drives me crazy. I told him we needed to have an intervention about the hats. He doesn't wear them when we go out, or we're in a dressed up situation, but he usually wears them if we run to the store, or if he's at work.

Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.
For work he wears chinos and polo shirts or button down shirts (mostly colored), sometimes a tie.

Hanging around casual it's T-shirts and jeans or cargo shorts

For going out he wears nicer jeans and either a sweater, a nice button-down, a bowling shirt or a guayabera.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

His excuse is that he doesnt have time to gel it and fix it - it takes him about 5 minutes!
However, I do think I've had some success because he won't wear sleeveless shirts out in public anymore

Ugh...sleeveless shirts on a man...not good. Mine still has one habit I'm trying to break. He thinks it's appropriate hot-summer-day attire to wear a short-sleeved Hawaiian-type shirt LEFT OPEN. Um...no...button that up or I'm throwing it away.
Add my man to the list of metrosexuals. And I have nothing to do with it.

He pretty much shops at European stores, because he's relatively small (5ft10, 145lbs) and just doesn't fit into the broader US sizing. So Zara, Mexx, Esprit, H&M and Benneton are his favorites.

And then on the days he does button it, he leaves one or two too many open at the top. Whenever I try to get him to button up, he always jokes that he's bringing back the "plunging neckline".

He's got a couple of silk and gauze hawaiian-type shirts, and I think they look very nice...when they're buttoned. The prints are more subtle than the typical loud hawaiian prints. Maybe they'd be better called "camp" shirts? They're just short-sleeve button shirts.
