What a Man

There’s nothing sexier to me than the sight of my husband in a suit.  Monogrammed white dress shirt, cuff links, the occasional pocket square….  Dashing.  And he always looks great in his go-to athletic wear.  But when it comes to casual clothes, he sometimes needs a little help.

I confess, I’ve never been particularly good at shopping for my husband.  But over the years, after much trial and error, I’ve learned a thing or two about what works.

Like most men, my husband’s requirements are simple:  cool (but not too trendy), comfortable and EASY.  He likes simple staples that can be mixed and matched and reworn over and over again.  So I stick to good quality basics that will last in classic colors that will outlast trends.

With that criteria in mind, I set out to buy him the perfect outfit for his birthday gift this year.  And – if I may say so – I think I nailed it.

1. Carhartt sweatshirt. (Try it in olive green, as a hoodie, or with a collar.)  2. Seven slim straight jeans. 3. Burnished leather sneakers.
