Now that the initial shock of the NSALE has subsided and we are anxiously waiting for that Madewell Cardigan to come back in stock… I guess we can shop for the other people in our family. If your husband is anything like mine, he only shops once a year for himself. Now is the time to update his closet with basic shirts/pants/quarterzippullovers and maybe a few unexpected items.
First thing’s first, I don’t know much about men’s fashion. Joanne Hassis at the Nordstrom in King of Prussia styled each of these guys. If you are local, you need to ask for her in the men’s department! Luckily I opted out of modeling for this post and got three of my favorite guys to step in.
Meet the Guys
Meet Ben (brother-in-law extraordinaire who also happens to be my favorite realtor. Philly area people, you can check him out here and definitely follow on Instagram to stay up to date with latest listings)
Stats: 6’3″/ 230lbs and normally a size XL, 38waist/32inseam
Meet Barry, my dad and self proclaimed “Senior Male Model”. Apparently some of you wanted him to get an Instagram handle so I went ahead and made one for him. Yeah, he doesn’t even know about it yet, but you can follow him here and maybe (after a glass of wine or two), I’ll convince him to start using it.
Stats: 5’9″ /190lbs and normally a size L, 36-38waist/31-32inseam
Meet Paul, my husband and world’s best dancer. I would tell you what he did for a living if I understood it myself. Lots of spreadsheets are involved. More importantly, he helped me create 4 adorable little boys and has been my better half since 1996.
Stats: 6’1″/ 200lbs and normally a size L, 36waist/32inseam
More Shirt/Pant Combinations
When Ben isn’t selling houses he is probably in the stands of his kid’s baseball games. This Vineyard Vines polo shirt is the perfect “work to weekend” shirt for his on-the-go lifestyle.
Blazers and Jackets
One of the things my husband and I can always agree on is that blazers are best. An easy way to dress up a work look, but also a special touch for when we get a night out. Blazers are also a great way to show a little personality with a subtle print.
More of our favorite Blazers and Jackets
Whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, Valentine’s Day, or Father’s Day the one gift that keeps on giving is the quarter zip…. These are what we like to classify as “no brainers”.
More layers to love
Barry, senior male model, keeps trim by playing tennis. 72 never looked so good!
