One of the downfalls of the typical housewife is having to shop for every family member in the household. This, unfortunately, includes the husband or male of the family. Buying clothes for these male members can be extremely frustrating, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be. With a few tips & shopping techniques it can be easy to find him the perfect clothes that are still in style and works on a tight budget.
The best possible tip you can follow when buying clothes for your male loved ones is to know what they like. It’s possible from knowing that to help bend what they like just enough to keep it fashionable. For example, if your man only wears stripes but solids are in this season, you may be able to find something that is a little of both rather than one way or the other – it gives you wiggle room. Another great tip for shopping for him is to remember your budget. Getting what’s in style is not important if you’re going to be broke at the end of the spree. Shop in places like Plato’s Closet or other gently used clothing stores to find the latest fashions in the cheapest prices – this is especially good for the younger men in your life.
Shopping doesn’t have to be a chore you have to do by yourself either. Nothing beats shopping for a man than shopping for him with him in tow. This is important because the best looking clothes can be extremely hideous looking if they don’t fit right. Bringing him along (even if he’s unwilling) can help a lot!
