Oh he's gonna look SO hot......

Alright, so my FH is quite the casual kinda guy.  Tees and cargo shorts are his (off work) uniform (and FOR work, it's polos and jeans).


So we did finally get him a GORGEOUS new suit for the wedding... black pinstripe, 3 button, side vent... so yummy!!  But we hadn't yet gotten some dress shirts, ties, etc.... (he's very broud through the shoulders and chest, so his size ends up being in "big and tall" shirts, but then they end up being like a tent on him, so it's been a challenge)...


So at lunch today I stopped by a men's store near my work, and not only found two beautiful ties for him, but a great selection of dress shirts in his size - but just in TALL, not big... woo hoooooooooo!!  I found a gorgeous white, short collared shirt with French cuffs for the wedding, then another one in lavender... Oh man, he's just going to be so *HOT*... I can't wait!!!!!

Sounds like imagining your FI in that suit is giving you the vapors...hehe I am glad you found the perfect attire for him.

*tee hee*  He just cleans up really nicely, and since he got the new suit, he's actually showing enthusiasm about dressing up, so it's like "Hmmm... what else can I find for him!"

We also went shopping for my FI suit yesterday and I can tell he really loves its. I think last time I saw him in a suit was prom like 8 years ago and i still remember how cute he looked.

That's great neebs! I really think dressing well can make men look so much sharper, and it makes them feel better about themselves. If we get pretty things every now and again, they should get to dress up too. I wish more people still wore suits not because they have to but because they want to, you know?? Or at least a blazer. I can't get FI out of his suits...sometimes I have to explain suits + dirty dirty mcdonald's don't mix. He has to wear a uniform (military, not a figurative term here) for work so when he's home he sits around in his favorite suit and brogues, it just cracks me up.

Neeb - My guy has broad shoulders too and it is a challenge finding shirts that fit.  He tried one on at Thomas Pink that was truly ridiculous - it looked about 12" too narrow, even though the neck and sleeves were the right sizes.  Anyway, FYI, the shirts that ended up fitting him really well were Brooks Brothers - and they stay really unwrinkled too!

Marin, I thought he looked so dapper! You didn't by chance order the men's shirts from bluefly did you? I've been meaning to check them out for shirts and I know you are the queen of bluefly!

No, unfortunately we had to get the shirts at full retail at the Brooks Brothers store! =)  We felt so good about getting the suit from Bluefly though, we didn't mind about the shirts!  I'm so glad you thought he looked dapper - I know I'm biased, but I really think my hubby's a looker! =)

Champ: I agree, it's nice to just get all prettied up (and then go someplace that warrants it!) every once in a while... and I'm trying to instill the idea of a sportcoat in him as well, even if just with some really nice jeans (our friend's husband can pull that look off really well - he'll rock a really nice jacket with jeans and some sort of vintage looking tee, and just looks great, so I'm tryyyyying to sell FH on that idea... comfy, but nice).


Marin: Oh that's good to know!  We do still need to pick up a couple more shirts and ties for him, so I'll check BB!!
