Shopping for my husband with Guide London Clothing

Shopping for my husband with Guide London Clothing

It’s a bit of a family joke that my husband only wears black. If shopping on his own he will, usually, choose something that is on the darker side of the colour spectrum. I sort out the family washing and it’s a bundle of colour – the children wear some lovely brightly coloured clothes and I myself like to wear bright colourful clothing.

Then, there is the dark wash pile which is invariably Damian’s stuff.

So, when I spotted a tweet looking for someone to choose a shirt for their husband/partner I jumped at the chance. I was given the chance to choose a shirt from an online store called Guide London. I hadn’t heard of them before but had a browse through the shirts and chose this one. I liked this one as it was still dark, but was a burgundy so a bit unusual for Damian.

However they didn’t have the shirt in Damian’s size so I opted for this blue one instead. A little out of Damian’s comfort zone for clothing colour

The item arrived quickly by courier and was well packaged. I ordered the same size shirt that Damian wears for his usual work shirts (Next, Debenhams, M&S). When he tried the Guide London shirt on it fits well (it’s a slim fit). so I would say that the sizing for Guide London is comparable to the high street brands that he usually wears for work.

Damian tells me that the shirt is comfortable and that he can tell it is a higher quality than the usual day to day shirts he wears. It certainly feels like a higher quality cotton and is very soft.

We haven’t had opportunity to go out for Damian to model and wear the shirt yet. The joy of having two small children means that nights out are a rarity these days!

So, in a bid to show you what the shirt looks like I asked Damian to wear it for a few pictures. Cue the silly posing. The pictures below were the best that we could manage!!

    You can see that this is good quality and the poses really show it off well! I have a shirt addict at home so I’ll take a look ready for the next gift idea!

    Gorgeous shirt – he looks really smart. I must admit it’s usually me that wears all the black in our house, Dave tends to be a bit braver!
