It seems that the majority of men are much less concerned with fashion and how their clothes look in comparison to women. Luckily, they are always surrounded by ladies who take care of their style and whose job is to help them look decent and draw their attention to some important details they would otherwise miss. With this in mind, we’ve prepared a five-step guide that will help you know when your husband really needs a wardrobe update. Let’s take a look.
He has a lot of clothes that no longer fit
Nothing looks worse on a man than clothes that don’t fit properly. So, if your husband has put on a few extra pounds and you notice that his shirt is so tight around his belly that it looks as if the buttons would burst and fall off every moment, it’s high time you did something about it. Basically, you can either get it adjusted by a tailor or simply go shopping with your husband and help him purchase a new one.
He hasn’t bought anything new in ages
If you can’t remember the last time your husband went shopping, this can mean only one thing – he doesn’t have anything fashionable in his wardrobe. Therefore, clue him in on the latest fashion trends and take him to some of the most famous fashion stores, where he’ll definitely be able to find something that reflects his personal style. If he is into sportswear, your best bet would be to take a look at the latest Adidas collection and find something that fits him perfectly.
Frayed cuffs and collars
The earliest signs that your husband needs a wardrobe update are frayed cuffs and collars. Of course, if the only issue here is a broken stitch, you can fix it easily. All you need to do is find a thread in a matching color since you certainly don’t want his colleagues and boss to think that he can’t afford a proper business outfit. However, if you notice that the fabric itself looks worn out and faded, there isn’t much you can do, except take him to the nearest shopping mall.
He wears the same combination for every formal occasion
A wedding, business meeting or a romantic dinner – it’s all the same to your husband since he has a single combination for all these formal occasions. However, if your husband doesn’t care, you should do something about it, since no matter whether you admit it or not, you’ll definitely feel a bit embarrassed when your friends realize that your husband has been wearing the same suit at the last five birthday parties.
You notice a lot of stains that simply won’t go away
You can easily wash the majority of stains off his clothes by simply putting them in the washing machine. However, certain ones are so persistent that even taking his clothes to a professional laundry service won’t help and these stains will signal you when your husband needs some new clothing. Furthermore, bleaching can often seem like an affordable solution. However, you should keep in mind that if frequently repeated, it can make clothes stiff and thus weaken the fabric. Finally, it’s much wiser to invest in a new clothing piece than to waste all that money on various cleaning products.
As you can see, there are quite a few signs that can help you realize when your husband really needs a wardrobe update. You just need to pay attention to what he wears. Finally, you can even try to spark your husband’s interest in fashion by offering him some trendy magazines and fashion blogs to read.
