I think the shirt is ok , but that belt has got to go. But if you want him to get rid of the shirt let the dog sit on it with out him knowing of course,pretty soon the dogs smell will draw attention, hope that helps your delema.

It looks great the way it is.
No, I didn't mean to button the top button, I meant he should button the buttondown collar.

LOL... Have to agree...if my husband (35) came home wearing skinny jeans I might think there was something wrong with him! HAHAH And totally mock him out....

You guys do know that "skinny jeans" just look like straitleg pants when you don't buy them tight? J crew has some pics of the modern fit that is more mature. This fit just is too big for classic even. I agree to let the dog eat the belt.

Check out the shirt fits:
Men's Shirts - Men's Dress Shirts, Men's Oxford Shirts, Button Down & Flannel Shirts - J.Crew

Also notice you can actually see the shape of his thighs in his pants and it does not look like a pair flapping on a clothes line.

slim pants fit:
Men's pants by fit - urban slim - Urban slim-fit cotton twill Bowery pant - J.Crew

I don't know...the men and apparel look very "Euro" in the links you posted. That look may work for certain guys, but it would look ridiculous on my husband. And I know I'm personally not attracted to that look. For a casual wear, I prefer my man to look like he walked out of the Eddie Bauer or Cabela's catalog. (But then again, I'm not known for being a fashion maven. )

Yep....I like a man to look more like a man...."skinny jeans" do not look the same as a straight leg Levi jean. A few guys can carry it off and look good, but still not the kind of guy I personally find attractive.

I've never seen a man wear skinny jeans unless they were gay male friends. Back to the ? I think flannel shirts are sexy for around the house or even a trip to the market. Buy him a better looking flannel though. JC Penny has nice soft ones

I clicked this thread expecting to find something bad. He looks great, imho. Except for the belt. Ugh! But then I'm from Wyoming. Oh yeah... and if the shirt has a button-down collar it should be buttoned down -- not a big deal, but it looks like he got dressed in a hurry and forgot. The fit looks right to me. It looks comfortable, and that's what casual clothes should be.

Where is your NYC blood? You are sounding like sooooooooooo midwest. LOL
I have seen your guys in your wed pic. I think your pick for his look is what works best. Guys with large frames look so stupid in fashiony wear. I prefer that look in basic too.


Lemy from motorhead is about as manly as manly gets...
Check out his skinny jeans with the slight boot cut:

I don't think it makes you look gay. Being gay does. But I do agree that some guys are not meant for it. Not saying the OPs hubby is rocker euro but a fit closer to that would be flattering. He looks thin and proportionate. OR is he hiding Dad Gut under that shirt?

I always try to select fits that mirror the body underneath it. Like if you are a women and curve fitting stuff is more flattering than a big baggy whatever that makes you look sloppy and 25lbs heavier than you are.
