I like to say that Andrew has been my most successful makeover.  I’ve taken him from tapered acid wash jeans and mandals to dark wash slim denim and sleek leather lace ups.  But even though he now dresses WAY better, there are still some things we don’t agree on.  The number one thing that comes up over and over: horizontal striped tops and sweaters.  There is only one known incident in which Andrew has worn a horizontal stripe sweater and it was 1) forced and 2) while in Newport, so in other words, the only setting in which he felt it was maybe okay. (I’m gonna get in so much trouble for posting this)…

(he’s drinking so much to forget he’s wearing the sweater)

And the whole time he was wearing it he could be heard muttering “I look stupid”, as if I made him wear a hot pink wrap dress to cocktail hour.  The only exception to this rule are striped polo golf shirts, which somehow are the ONLY allowed exception to this “no horizontal stripes” rule.

I however, think stripes look cute on guys! If i manage to get Andrew to even try something on like that it goes a little something like this:

Me: OMG, you look so cute!

Him: No.

Me: But I think you look hot, do you not want to look hot for me?

Him: No.


So here’s some evidence to back up my opinion:



“Hey girl, striped shirts are awesome”

Um, hello, the quintessential “bad boy” even worse stripes, with a sailor collar no less!


So what do you think? Can you help settle this long time argument? Do you like men in stripes?

If you agree, here are some picks:
