I'm proud of my husband's style transformation. When we met his wardrobe consisted of decade-old shirts with holes, old jeans 3 sizes too big, and too-tight band tees. And the shoes..... he wore his dirty, gross, work shoes everywhere!
While I respect that "grunge" was in at one time, I felt his style (and confidence) needed an upgrade. After four years of being together (two of them married) I have finally gotten him to a point where he feels OKAY to spend money on himself- and really looks put together!
He kept his rocker edge (something I love about him) but with more flare.
