Does your DH/SO wear a suit?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
For those of us with DH/SO/boyfriends, does yours gripe everytime he has to wear a suit? Does he even own a suit? When I met Jerry, he didn't own one. He had a suit coat that was 2 sizes too small for him. Well, when his aunt died and he was asked to be a pall bearer, he wanted to go get a suit. Since then, I think it's been work like maybe 6-7 times..........weddings, funerals and a business luncheon/meeting. When I suggest him wearing it any other place, he says no way........ I personally like a guy once in a while when he dresses up.........but you'd think I was asking him to tear off his arm or something............ Men!

The whole reason I brought this up is because Jerry saw they were having suits on sale, and he suggested getting a new one! At over $250's, I just can't see it...........

Ian has, I think, 4 suits in his possession. You will rarely ever see him wearing anything less than a jacket, button down, tie and jeans (or a nice sweater). So, yeah, he wears a suit pretty often. The kid is better dressed than I am! But his classy duds are part of what makes him so easy on the eyes

Since Colin was in the navy for 8 years and then went straight into the police force...i'm used to seeing him in uniform. OMG and there's NOTHING hotter than a Naval Lt.'s dress uniform!!!! Welll.....that aside, i had never seen him in a suite until this summer at his brothers wedding. (He always wears a uniform to work so he doesn't dress up much- but still dresses nice.) Oh man... i had some inappropiate thoughts going through my head the whole time he wore the tux / There is nothing more handsome or sexy than a man in a tux!!!! Colin looks soo handsome dressed up He doesn't really complaine about it eithor.

Funny you should mention that. Tristan did have the pants and jacket second hand or on sale at Kmart, and he wanted to get a proper one. I'd never been suit shopping before and last week i helped him pick his first one out! He was a happy boy

Pat's got two suits in two different sizes...which one fits him depends on what weight he's at at the time. He's usually not TOO bad about wearing it when he absolutely, positively can't get out of it.

Our issue is with the dress shirts. Every time he has to get dressed up we have to go through the process of hunting down a reasonably unstained one. You'd think he'd put one or two aside for special occasions, but no way. When he runs out of clean work shirts, he'll put on a dress shirt...and then gets it stained. Of course, he never thinks about what he'll wear until he's actually getting dressed so we always end up running around at the last minute trying to get a stain out of a shirt and get it ironed. I finally outsmarted him, though. During the after-Christmas sales I bought two wrinkle-free dress shirts on clearance and I've hidden them. They'll be my secret until we get into last minute shirt panic mode. (Now let's just hope they fit him when the moment actually rolls around.)

Jim's Mother (RIP) before she passed use to buy Jim suits ALL OF THE TIME! He's Greek so there is always some social function at the church that requires him to wear a suit. He has 2 closets FULL of suits.

He can also Greek dance with a glass on top of his head going all the way to the floor in a suit.

David owns two suits - his "new" one that I bought him about 3 or 4 years ago that he has worn exactly once and his "old" one that probably doesn't even fit him anymore! He hates getting dressed up or wearing suits - would rather get a tooth pulled. I'm just the opposite - I love getting dressed up!

Dave has a number of suits from his late Dad (who was a minister and looked odd in anything besides a suit) but we don't have occasion to play dress up very often. He does clean up purty when we do, though.

The day Lance wears a suit is the day he dies and I make the funeral home dress him in one... lol. Seriously. Jeans and a tye dye shirt is what he's comfortable in. He will NOT wear anything else but jeans and a T. And he always cuts the sleeves off.

Brian owns one nice suit and one tux. We pack one or the other when we go on a trip in case we want to go somewhere "nice". He doesn't complain. I actually think he likes dressing up.

Nate bought a suit for our wedding, but when we turned up to the ceremony I still had to get him to remove his baseball cap for the duration - actually that made it really memorable because he threw his cap into the crowd as if it were the bride's bouquet, people remember that and laugh about it, and I wouldn't change that memory for anything

My DH owns a suit because when he graduated college he needed to find a job. Well, that was only two years ago, so he still has a NICE suit, that he rarely wears. He prefers slacks, dress shirt and tie to a full suit. Last time he was all gussied up was for our wedding in October. He sure was a site for sore eyes.

My DH has 3 suits. I don't think any have been worn in a while though. It's just not required for his job, our church is casual, and we don't have that many events to go to! He looks pretty good in em too!

LOL it takes a wedding or funeral and some fast talking/sturdy ropes to get Jeremy into his suit, which is too bad, because he is dead sexy in his navy pinstriped double breasted suit.

I own one suit and I have to say, I look pretty damn dapper when I wear it.

I haven't worn it in a while because I'm not interviewing and I haven't had any suit-wearing events to go to. Our company canceled our annual Christmas party because 2/3's of the company wasn't going.

I'd have to get the pants tailored. I've been eating too many HoHos.

Neil has 8 suits!! However since moving from a position at his corporate office to one of the companies mills the dress code is business casual. I don't even know if some of them fit or are "in style"!! That would be something to go though this weekend!! He has 2 or 3 he actually wears at weddings or other formal occasions. He also has a fair amount of dress shirts and ties!!

DH has one, but its five sizes to big. We bought it before we started loosing weight, so when he went to his last job interview he was swimming in it. I really should take it to a tailor.

dead sexy, that is cracking me up

no current DH, but my ex also looked awesome in his suit and then in his tux on our wedding day my ex was a very good-looking guy and when he wore a suit looked like a dang Calvin Klein model, ah well, shows sometimes the outside does not reflect the inside

nope! He's one of the hotties in a hard hat, a tool belt, a hammer, a drill gun, & work boots! Complete with holes in his jeans!

My DH actually has 3 suits. Two of them are formal with the vest and tie but he never wears them. The other one is a western suit which I can get him to wear for photos and such as long as he gets to wear a bolo tie. He says real cowboys don't wear ties. And he looks real sexy!!!

About 5 yrs ago I went thru a bunch of boxes his ex had sent over and found **gasp** 4 pocket polyester leasure suits (vintage 1970); 3 of them; brown, powder blue and pea-soup green. I actually got money for them in the yard sale. And DH still teases me about selling his "suits"

When my honey was working full time as a musician his nightly attire (6 nights a week) was a tuxedo and pleated shirt. Yes, he looked awesome - had to fight the women off with a stick. (That's only partly joking - some were pretty bold.)

I have one of them

He does own one black suit for weddings / funerals / whatever else, but like someone said before, getting him into it is a pain!
