Clothes Shopping for the Husband

How funny is the photo on the left? Apparently when i shop for the family, i buy the same thing in big medium and small.. We were weak when we spotted that we were all clones of each other.

My husband hates shopping. So much so that he delegates the job to me, and as a seasoned pro at shopping I gladly take the task on. 

This man only shops twice a year, Autumn and Spring, we buy him what he needs to see him through 6 months, he wears them till they’re practically threadbare and then we shop again. It’s something i love about him actually, he’s not in to clothes but he has his very own style which is simple but effective. So having been with him for 10 years it’s safe to say i know what to buy him when that time of year rolls around again. 

Vivienne Westwood Mens Black Tee and Sweater
Coats & Jackets :A Khaki Utility Coat and a Biker Jacket
Wear everywhere Levi Jeans
Fancy shirts for special occasions, One white for any occasion, one funky paisley
Snazzy waistcoat
Converse (vegan friendly) shoes

This pretty much see’s him through for autumn/winter, add in a couple more t-shirts and a hoodie or two and he is good to go. He was minimal before it was cool 😉

I love that he’s happy with a few great pieces, he a great inspiration on the capsule wardrobe front, lol!

Do you shop for your significant other? 
And if you could style them do you they think they’d like it?

    This is really interesting, I think it's less common these days for men not to shop for themselves. My husband buys his own stuff, and I tend to leave him to it. I've bought a few things in the past that he didn't like! Some winners too though. Minimalist he is not though, he's got more shoes than me!! x

    haha, thats really interesting. My husband hates shopping so if he can pass the task on he will.. I think you're totally right tho, most men these days actually enjoy to some extent shopping. Its funny your hubby has more shoes than you ;D xxx
