I tend to be attracted to this type of guy.

But the prospect of me shopping for them also excites me.

How do guys like this feel about their woman shopping for them?

All men have their own vision of "style" that governs how they dress from day to day. What is different from women is that 80% of men don't care what they look like as long as they are "comfortable" and what they wear is work matched.

Sure , there are 20% of men that are bona fide fashion hogs but just 20%.

So does that mean that a guy wouldn't care if I shopped for him? (that was my question)

Sure you can shop for and gift any fella you want to.

BUT you better by God know this person inside and out or you may either give that person the wrong idea about or worse yet offend them greatly.

You have to wait until the proper time in the relationship to start that. If he thinks too early on that you're trying to remake him in the image you want, he may resent it.

OTOH, some guys might be relieve to not have to bother. You need to know the guy a little bit first.

I shop for Sneakers all the time, Levi's, white tshirts, white briefs, white socks, button down shirts short sleeve and long sleeve, some for summer, some for winter, thermals for the winter, and of course Sneakers and work boots.

Oops, just read your question again, Sneakers and I have been together for 10 years and I've shopped with him at the beginning of our relationship but now just get what I want for him. Keep in mind we shopped together for a couple years for him but after this many years I know what he likes and his size so it is not an issue between us. So you might try going shopping with him a few times and see what he prefers outside of what is already in his closet.

Just went shopping for my guy...who's wardrobe consists of uniforms, gym wear, and home improvement clothes (ie paint stained).

He was quite happy.Though to make him more comfortable leaving 1990 for 2012 I had his teenage girl confirm he doesn't look like he is dressing to young. /lol

I 've shopped for my man for 3 years, filled his wardrobe with all kinds of clothes. To be honest, he have no ideas about "styles". He was quite happy even he was made like a boy. I was told that shopping is a messy job for him, oops.

I believe men also have their own taste of fashion, and should have their style.
