Men and Dress Clothes

We will be leaving for Santa Fe in the morning for work (yeah, life is hard!). I had ThatManILove come into the bedroom while I showed him what outfits I was going to pack. That took about 10 minutes. He approved most of my selections.


And then, it was his turn. I kid you not, he tried on 10 pair of pants. They’re all brand new, so he couldn’t have grown out of them. And then the shirts. All brand new. And then, the jackets. Shoes. Even had to get my approval on the socks.


Now, this man is a snappy dresser. He even helps me pick out my dress clothes, when he’s in town. But tonight? It took us about 1 1/2 hours to get through his clothing choices and my approval.


And they say women are bad....hah!!

I know, mine's the same with leaving for somewhere; it's always me ready first, me waiting for him, me standing outside while he suddenly remembers something and has to go back to get it. Men. Ha.

Drip Dry's always like "So how do I look???" and never bothers to even look at what I'm wearing.. . .

Have a great trip!

I have a similar problem, but in my case it's because I'm not a snappy dresser. I wear blue jeans and sneakers to work every day (well... and an shirt), so when it comes time to dress up a level or two I'm never sure if I even have a shirt and a pair of Dockers slacks that go together.

Traumatic, totally.

Yep, I have always said that about all the men I have known and still know..MOSTLY consisting of family men and MOSTLY about fussing about their hair too!!!

J's got no problems packing, he grabs a few shirts and pants and packs his bag. After a time or two where socks or a belt were forgotten, I review his choices now.

OMgosh LOL you could be the next rachel Zoe!

I just wished my husband asked my opinion on his attire...lets say he is color blind and thinks members only jackets and socks up to your knees while wearing shorts are still in fashion
