A few years ago, there was a commercial on television that I absolutely loved. The wife had called her husband. When he answered the telephone, he was standing there in a pair of sweatpants and a matching jacket. Apparently, it was the wife's birthday, she told him that she wanted to be taken out for dinner. She went on to tell him that she wanted him to wear a pair of pants that zipped, and a jacket that did not! Hilarious!!! While my husband is not a sweatpant kind of a guy, there have been times that I have told him that I would not leave the house with him if he did not change his clothes :/
While many of us have struggled with men who are happy to wear clothes that are far from inspirational, men's clothing can offer some fabulous ideas that we can incorporate into our own wardrobes.
I came across this Alexander McQueen men's shirt on Pinterest and thought it was amazing. What I especially like is the idea of using a border print in a regular button down type of a shirt. Makes a basic shirt really special.
Here's another. This time the border print is used top down.
Even in a t-shirt the border print looks great.
I loved the color blocking in this shirt.
Another color blocking idea. Love how it was taken into the sleeves.
A basic shirt that was given the look of a raglan sleeve. Here I love how the color blocking was taken into the collar. The front pocket also offers an interesting design detail.
What a great use of an old tie.
Check out the detail on this collar.
An interesting pocket surprise.
And finally, I love this shirt. Notice the flange on the front tab and how it was echoed in the pocket.
So, ideas for you, and if you are lucky, maybe a few ideas for your husband too!!!
Have a great week!
