    So yesterday was my b-day and the wife thinks I need a set of clothes specifically for working on the cruiser. I do have those but sometimes changing is a hassle and I get a bit inolved in things after I noticed I need to change in to cruiserwear.

    Anyway she bought me some carharrt T's and dungarees and some disc channel t's . The pants are pretty close to what I wear but she got me L for t shirts :confused: :confused: I haven't worn a L since like '83-84? She says but look how big this Large is. I said I don't care how big it is it ain't going to fit. She insisted I try it on. It's about as tight as one could possibly bear even for the 70's or 80's and she starts laughing. YAH.. no kidding I told you it wasn't going to fit. :rolleyes: I felt like she was going to pull out george micheal tickets or something :ban:

    I'm really trying to simplify my life since she likes to shop and I don't but this happens every x-mas/bday. Do you guys have this issue too? I was hoping to have her broken in by now after 4 years :grinpimp:

    I have the exact same situation. My wife likes buying me shirts-I tell her I only have a few pairs of shirts that I wear until I need a new one. She doesn't seem to understand that clothing is not a big priority for me, especially if I'm working on the cruiser. I got five years of trying to train her to no avail. Oh well she likes her shopping, and I like my cruiser. To this day I just tell her not to buy me anything because it won't fit, won't be my style, or will just be ignored and stuck in the closet. I swear I have over 10 pair of Ralph Lauren jeans that have never been woren, who the hell wears Ralph Lauren, unless your a :princess:

    Ya she has to get my briefs custom made because of the need for extra room in the front. :flipoff2:

    I'm actually lucky because for her to go shopping I have to insist on it at which point she begins to argue that she doens't need anything. It's rare that she ever does say she needs a new outfit. She'll shop for the kids, but neither me or her. If I need something I'll just go pick it up.

    After a few attempts...mine just lets me shop for my own stuff :D

    The mother-in-law tries from time to time...but she's learned to include the recipt (or a gift receipt) to facilitate the returns process.

    As for the title of the thread...yeah, mine knows what size I wear...but not necessarily what I like to wear. Or maybe it's that she wants me to wear something else? :confused:


    :D

    My wife is my personal shopper, but she knows better than to pick stuff out for me. I tell her what I like and she locates the size. I always forget, but she remembers and digs through the piles of Carharts and shirts. She rocks.

    Lucky me! My :princess: knows my size, my style, and my budget! She gets me stuff from Eddie Bauer, Land's End, and LL Bean when it's on sale...cheap!

    She's perfect! :D
