5 Tips on How To Buy Clothes For Your Boyfriend/Partner


Whether its for a special occasion or a gift for his birthday. We all know that buying clothes for a man can be rather impossible! He may be picky and only shop for certain brands or what you may think he looks good in has him rolling his eyes. What ever the reason you may be looking to buy clothes for your man here are 5 top tips to keep your other half looking stylish.

1. Help him pick out clothes when out shopping together. Get to know his style, what brands he likes, does he prefer jeans or trousers? Perhaps get him to show you some stores he like to shop at online. 

2. He may be insecure about the way he looks. So speak to him first, find out what style he likes, does he like a lot of colour to keep things simple and bold? Try and get an understanding of what he likes. If he is insecure about the way he looks it will inflect in the way he dresses. Don't try and change his habits without knowing what he likes first. 

3. Speak to his friends! His guy friends will most likely be able to advise you in what to buy him. Men talk about latest new brands and clothes just like us women do. He would have most likely told them the latest shoes he is lusting over. 

4. Buy clothing brands you know he buys regularly as a safe option. Take a look through his wardrobe and make sure you know his size before buying clothes. If you are not sure ensure you get a gift receipt so he can always take them back. Men are really picky, he may tell you he likes a brand but when you buy an item from there he tells you he doesn't like it because he doesn't like the colour. You can find a fantastic range of carhartt t shirts at Arkive and they also have a great range of womens wear too. 

5. Sneakily get rid of his clothes that you don't approve of and replace them with clothes you would like him to wear. He probably won't notice seeing as he has way more clothes than you. 

If all else fails and you can't get him to dress better... find another boyfriend. Just Kidding!

Do you find it impossible to please your man when buying him clothes? Or do you stick with buying him gift vouchers instead?

  1. Lucky for me, my boyfriend will buy whatever I buy him, even if he doesn't seem to like it much at first. I bought him two shirts that I love and he wears them all the time now. I think it was just a matter of him giving something new a chance. I'm glad he's okay with me shopping for him.
