Congratulations to Bubby! Check out the July 2nd edition of The Jerusalem Post to read the feature article on this blog...
My husband's wardrobe is either exceptionally casual (tshirts and jeans)or exceptionally formal (three piece suit!). He doesn't seem to quite get the "in between" stage of dress: Business casual. His office does not require him to dress up and so he has little need to think about such dress, until of course it's too late.
I'd like to introduce him to a more modern style of dress, but I don't know how since he hates shopping and doesn't appreciate much criticism of his wardrobe (I try hard NOT to nag or otherwise pester him about such things). Truthfully though, I'm tired of looking at his ill fitting jeans and baggy tshirts! Do you have any advice for gently updating a husband's wardrobe?
(It's like coaxing a squirrel to eat out of your hand: one sudden move and all is lost!)
The Squirrel Talker
Dear Squirrel Talker,
Jeans and T-shirts are great but one must grow up to other types of dress. Why don't you buy him a nice broadcloth shirt or a slipover sweater for his birthday or even just for being a nice guy. Say when you looked at this beautiful slipover you could just see him in it.
Do you point out some of his friends who wear slacks and sport jackets when they go out to dinner? Show him the magazines that advertise men's clothing styles. Plant the seed in his mind and it will grow. Once you get him into some comfortable casual sports clothes and he looks into the mirror - he'll say "not a bad looker" and he will change.
It worked for my husband and it should work for yours. Also take him to a nice men's store - not a closeout facility.
