The shirt looks too big. Hey - is that MY husband??? My husband ALWAYS wears clothes several sizes too big for himself because he thinks everything's gonna "shrink".

Looks perfectly normal to me.
But then I'm not a fashion minded person. Just a retired blue collar worker.
If people don't like the way I look they are free to look at someone else.
As long as I am clean and comfy I don't give a damn what others think.
Blue jeans and flannel shirts in the winter. And long johns.
Blue jeans and short sleeve cotton shirts in the summer.
Only time I don't wear that is for funerals or weddings.
And I HATE TIES.
Oh yeah, I have some bib overalls around here someplace.
Clothes don't impress me. They just need to be clean and cover what they are supposed to cover.
There are much more serious issues to be concerned about than someone wearing flannel shirts and bluejeans.

I think it looks pretty good. I don't like the belt personally but I think the shirt is OK (not too big, I in fact find it more feminine when guys wear things so tight, skinny jeans etc. yuk). The jeans are relaxed and slightly lose but its definitely not a bad thing. Its a casual look. Im 34 though and can't stand the latest fashion skinny trends for the young men, that and the hair that looks all messed up. I like tight haircuts for men.
Really? just get a new belt. Go to gap and find a nice leather one. done.

Very nice. I love when a man wears clean jeans, button down shirts (that is tucked in), and isn't too tight or too loose either. I think it looks great.

But no shoes. What kind of shoes does he wear with this outfit?

This is what my husband wears all the time and I think it looks good. I want him to button the buttondown collar though.
What would you prefer he wear?

i agree. those are jeans are smaller than the ones he use to wear.

he took me out to lunch in this.
threw on a old leather jacket and some brown cole haan dress shoes..

The only thing I don't like is the belt. I'd prefer a distressed brown leather belt without stitching (at least not the obvious stitching like your husbands.)
like I said he threw on a pair of brown cole haan dress shoes...
he likes the belt. he just bought it.

I like more simpler looks... polos, dress shirts. nice t-shirts... try to stick to one color. also like darker denim and no dress shoes with jeans! he needs a leather belt too which he has but only uses it with slacks.

how do I change this man's mind? I showed him this post and he I think he got the point but we'll see.

It's not too big, but for it to be "in"...he'd have to untuck it...and he doesn't look like a guy that would go around "untucked".

I like the top button the way it is. If he buttoned all the way up, it probably would be very uncomfortable and tight. I never button the top button of my button down shirts either (neither did my dad and husband ever).

It looks great the way it is.
