I managed to get J's new shirt returned. I should have known better than to trust J to buy his own clothes! All he needed was was a crisp new white dress shirt. I should have known he couldn't handle such a tall order! Apparently while in the store, he had a mental block as to the size of his own neck. He guesstimated it at 52 centimeters. Then he called me to ask me what the second set of numbers was...
J "Chest size?".
Coffee "No dear, it's for your arms."
J "Oh."

So he came home with the wrong size. He was positively swimming in it. I am not crazy enough to keep sending him back to annoy the saleslady all week, so I got the job done myself.

Sigh, why wasting time of letting him go by himself in the first place. You should think I know better after so many years, must be a mental coffee block or so. Too much blood in the caffeine system or so

Liefs Coffee

hmmmmm....I get measured any time I get a new dress shirt for the same reasons.

Guys don't care for those types of details. We are about BigPicture. Women are so much better in details. Guys care what the price of a new car is. Women care about the monthly payments. Guys know what their yearly salary is. Women can tell you how much is in each paycheck.

Makes the relationships that much better.

I always buy my own clothes, especially suits, shirts and ties. I think, within certain limitations, it should be the other way round. What better than to buy your beloved classy silk underwear, a stylish accessory or a piece of jewellery, and pamper her just a little.

Hmmmm! Is that the smell of ground Java beans in the background?

If shopping for clothes, we do it together
i notice when something went wrong in the making
She looks at the price, of the pieces
when its for her, and she see for me if it would fit me correctly
But at the end, i always find it took to long of our time
trying on and of clothes i even do not like

Always and always buy my own clothing. Ranging from spare time, sports wear, under wear, to fashionable suits, shirts from ugly hawaii to straight business ones, and doing my own matching of different jackets/pants.
No one decides for me in this !!!
