    H likes dressing up.  He begged me to wear a tie to Dad's beach wedding.  In the sun.  On the beach.  He wanted to wear a tie.  ::smdh::

    he'll usually ask me what's appropriate, but won't complain about getting dressed up for special occasions.

    i told him i made reservations at a nice restaurant for Sunday night - he asked if he needed to wear a jacket and tie, a tie with no jacket, or something business casual. 

    i've also taught him the difference between dress socks and everyday socks, and that he shouldn't mix black and brown (especially when it comes to suits/belts/shoes.)

    I think H is far more comfortable in a suit and tie. not to mention he has this insane need to be perfect in everyone's eyes.

    I just think that any man over 22 shoulldn't make a huge deal about wearing a tie. I would hope.

    Do you only wear polo shirts? That would make me very sad.

    Except for that hoarder-style behavior he only shares with you.  Lucky!  ;)

    FI is planning on wearing black everyday socks at the wedding. He's very into pointing out whenever I'm mixing black and brown shoes/purse/belt/socks/etc, but he won't get dress socks for our black tie optional wedding. Whatever. They're his feet.

    I wish DH had to wear at least a tie to work. I would prefer a suit and tie.

    The polo/khakis/dress pants thing is so tired.

    that's what i'm thinking, nola.  i understand if you don't normally wear a tie on a regular basis, but what the what.  adults wear adult clothing.  yeah, yeah, he's an adult and he can choose what he likes, but if he chooses the clothing of children, expect me to be pointing and laughing and trying to make his suit pants into a shortie suit to match.

    DH used to ask for some of our family things- baptism, first communion, mom's bday, etc.  He pretty much knows now, but his family does not dress for anything.

    6, i get that.  dh will ask me if a tie is expected, especially for events with my family; we're a little more formal than his family.  but there isn't feet stomping or whining.

    although he used to wear a suit to work every day, he doesn't now and he doesn't complain when the situation calls for him to wear one.

    It's weird.

    He'll wear a tie as the lead singer of his band, along with a button-down shirt and fedora, since that's part of his image.

    Anything else, he'll kinda whine about it and loosen it/take it off immediately after the obligation is over, because it's hot and constricting.

    ...And wearing it while you're jumping around on stage isn't hot and constricting?

    oh, and i will never, ever get on board with shirt, tie and boutonniere.  boutonnieres go on jackets, not stabbed through a dress shirt.  if he wants to wear flowers with a shirt and tie, he gets a wrist corsage.
