Check out that knit oatmeal-colored sweater. He thought it was stylin'.
Another knit sweater you ask? Oh yes. This time in not-really-chocolate brown.
Now, meet Chris's favorite jacket—the columbia ski liner. With, of course, a white knit sweater underneath.
All of the above photos were taken during our courtship (2007-2008). As you can imagine, one of my first items of business after we were married was to slowly (but surely) turn over his wardrobe. Then, one day about a month or so ago, he came out wearing this.
He said, "Is the denim on denim too much?"
I almost died of happiness.

My friends, this can happen for you, too. Just follow these simple tips.
1. Drop subtle hints that you think he could use some new clothes. He deserves it, after all.
2. Do some "spring cleaning." You better believe that all of those round-neck knit sweaters now live at Goodwill.
3. DO NOT change over his wardrobe all at once. It will freak him out. And he'll resent it.
4. Tell him how handsome he looks when he's wearing items you like.
5. Use occasions like birthdays, Christmas, Valentine's, anniversaries—heck, even Easter!—to pick up some new items for him.
Will I ever get my husband to regularly wear bow ties? Probably not. But we have gotten to a point where we both like what he's wearing—and it makes for one very happy couple. In the end, we all know it's what's on the inside that really matters. But hey, a hunky man definitely doesn't hurt.
