What's your SO's clothing style?

What is your SO's clothing style and how old is he?

My boyfriend is 32 and still loves to wear graphic tees, baggy jeans, and khaki cargo shorts. I'm not against his style, but sometimes I think he needs a more mature wardrobe for certain situations/occasions. He dresses up for work (ties, dress pants, etc.) so he loves casual fun on the weekends.

Please share...

    Levi's and band tshirts.
    He is 48.
    He has been wearing the same things since I met him 25 years ago :)

    My SO's usual attire is solid colored t-shirts or polos with jeans, dress pants, or khakis in summer or the same pants with sweaters and blank long sleaved shirts in the winter.

    On really casual days, he'll wear torn jeans or board shorts with wacky prints on them.

    He's 23.

    My husband is 49, and he's a very snappy dresser. He wears dress shirts and pants to work, khakis and polos or casual button-down shirts for casual in warm weather, turtlenecks and blazers in cool weather, and cargos and t-shirts for weekends. He can rock a suit too when he needs to. He's a tall/thin ectomorph type, so he looks good in anything, and he let's me pick out his clothes, so he's a very good boy.

    He's 31 and kind of on the metrosexual side of dressing. Normally he'll just wear jeans and a tshirts. He's got more jeans than I do and usually nice kinda stylish brands/cuts - 575, Guess, Diesel are his favorite. His shirts are more on the fitted side but not too fitted. Button down nice dress shirts(and not the kind everyone else is wearing) is what he likes to wear on a night out and during the day something a little less casual. I've never seen him in khakis or polos..which is good because I really don't care for that look. He loves suits and will look for an excuse to wear them. For mens clothing he definitely has more fashion sense than I do...i know nothing about mens clothes and have no interest them really. Whenever my guy friends would ask me to help them shop, I send them to him.

    He's quite a bit older than I am and he wears baggy jeans and tshirts...usually band/tour tshirts. I've never seen him more dressed up than that. Wait, I bought him a nice turtleneck, so I saw him in that once. :lol:

    He's a painter, so he can get away with it. He's a very free spirit.

    Where does he shop? I'm finding it hard to find good places for him around here... and he hates to spend money on clothes.

    DH is 30 and wears graphic tees, baggy jeans, and khaki cargo shorts. He wears a uniform all week at work so unless we are going to a wedding or funeral, he is casual the rest of the time. I don't mind because I dress casual too!

    Work: carhartt pants, t-shirt, work boots.
    home: khakis, t-shirts, button down shirts, cargos, pullover shirts, cargo shorts, etc.

    Well my bf spends money on clothes - his favorite stores are United Colors of Beneton, Guess, Sisley..'gayish' type stores for men. He likes stuff from Zara but we dont have one in our city. European clothes usually fit much smaller which works out for him because he's kinda short and skinny. He's more snobby about clothes and shoes than I am.

    This is my boyfriend too. Not a big deal I guess, because I'm usually pretty casual too.

    This all came up because we're going on a vacation this summer to a nice resort where they require pants and closed toe shoes at the restaurants.
    Guess we gotta go shopping... :P

    OK another question...

    How do you determine what length of jean/pant to buy (other than trying them on). My guy is 6'0...I'm thinking 32 length!?!?!?

    I'm ordering stuff online and gonna surprise him. :wink: :D

    My bf is 32. He wears bootcut jeans with either sweaters, polos or solid t-shirts. Occasionally a button down tucked in with a jacket on, which is my personal faaaavorite. He typically wears a brown belt, sometimes a cloth colored one. He wears cowboy boots, sketchers shoes or sketchers sneakers. He's gorgeous in anything. I swear, there are things I think are the biggest fashion faux pas, but he can wear it and I don't care.
    Under construction.

    Cargo khakis, loose-fitting jeans, graphic tees, and some nice long-sleeved shirts for colder weather. He doesn't own any suits, ties, dress shoes, slacks, or button-down shirts. He DOES own a very grungy, beat up, faded old flannel shirt that he'll wear nearly anywhere. :)

    My bf is about 6'0, and he used to wear 32 until I told him to try on a 34 and he liked them much better. :lol: It depends on the length of his legs--not all 6'0ers will have the same leg length. If you can, maybe order both sizes and return whichever isn't the best.

    Nah, if I was in my 70's, I'd probably have said "he's a very natty dresser". And if he was in his 70's, he'd probably be wearing pants from the 1950's...depression era babies never seem to want to spend a dime on new clothes.

    You can't tell by height. You have to go by inseam measurement. Take a tape measure and measure his inseam...I'm sure he won't mind that a bit...

    Seriously, measure the inseam of a pair of pants he already owns (that fit well) and that will tell you the length to buy.

    That's the truth! My husband's grandpa is depression era and he has moccasins that he put duct tape on so he could keep wearing them :lol:

    My son wears a 32" length and he is 5'11'

    He usually wears jeans and sneakers (the same pair of sneakers every day-- blue ones). He'll wear a solid-colored t-shirt if it's warm, and if it's not, he varies between a blue fleece pullover and a green sweater. Very predictable. :lol: Occasionally he'll wear a hoodie, a polo shirt, or a different sweater, but not often!

    He's 24.

    ETA- Oh, I forgot. The t-shirts he wears aren't super baggy like so many guys wear, so that's one plus at least! :wink: No, seriously, his clothes are fine, I like them, I just sometimes wish he'd mix it up a bit more.

    I didnt realize we were that curvier than men..I'm 5'6 and I need 34..I can wear 32 if I am wearing really thin flat flip flops maybe. My hips are kinda extra large though.
  • eccentric_kurlzeccentric_kurlz Posts: 4,144Registered Users
    He has no style right now. :lol: He wears fatigues 5 days out the week and when not in uniform, wears whatever is available. Most of the time, t-shirts and comfortable pants. But outside of casual wear, he loves dressing up.

    Oh, and he's 27.
    A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

    S/O is 42 and casual. Jeans and colored or decroative T-shirts mostly. He can clean up well if he needs to, but it's not that often. I see more baseball jerseys out now as well. He loves his Ed Ott and his Clemente jerseys. He does at least buy the proper inseam length, and he doesn't like the baggy style.

    Speaking of baggy, I recall S/O laughing at a kid last week running in the rain holding his pants up because his pants were too darn baggy for him to run in without holding them up.

    Uhh, measure his inseam (from his crotch to below his ankle where the pants should fall) while he's asleep?

    At 5'9" I have a 33" inseam, and at 6' my SO has a 30" inseam, so it really depends on ratio of leg to torso. If he has long legs, I'd go with 34", if he has short legs 32". I'd be wary of going less than that unless he's got a really long torso.
    Lots and lots of fine 3b-ish hair.

    All she'd have to do is check the inseam of pants he already owns. Ones that fit, that is. :)
