Every time Shanice and I go shopping and pass by the men’s department, we always say, “Damn, I really want to help a guy go shopping!” And Jen and I always talk about how nice it must be to be a guy because they don’t have to worry about dresses and skirts — they just have simple things like trousers, jeans, sweaters, vests, blazers, ties, etc. I absolutely adore menswear. I’d honestly rather flip through an issue of GQ rather than Vogue or some other women’s fashion magazine because guys just get to wear really amazing things.
I’ve told Tim every now and then (before we got together) that if he ever needed help shopping for clothes to let me know because I just really want to help a man buy clothes. He trusts my tastes in things since I helped him find a pair of comfy, yet stylish, shoes for his trip to Europe last year at Aldo. Tim finally asked if I would help him pick out clothes, and I was like, “YES! I’ve been asking you to let me help you go shopping for how long???”
On Saturday we went to Modesto to go to the Build-A-Bear Workshop (more on that later), and afterwards we went to H&M. I like Tim’s personal style, but I’ve seen him dress fancy before and he looks goooood. So I was like a kid in a candy store sorting through all the button-up shirts, jackets, and sweaters that I thought would make him look like a GQMF (GQ Mother F*cker, in case you didn’t know). There were a few things I picked out that looked better on the hanger, but I found a really nice crew neck sweater with herringbone elbow patches and two patterned button-up shirts that he could wear under them, a pair of grey trousers, and a cranberry v-neck sweater [not pictured]. We still need to find a dark gray button-up to go under that.
I think I did a good job. 😀
