Brands on a budget

My husband has quite a relaxed attitude to fashion at the
moment; he rarely buys anything new for his wardrobe. He is still wearing underpants he had when he was 16, I would
like to say they are going strong but that would be a complete lie (think tatty and threadbare from well over a
decade of washing!).

I wish he would take a bit more interest in his appearance
but part of it is down to budget, after getting into a bit of debt before we
got together he is much more careful with his finances now and what he spends
on clothes, preferring to make things last. 
Which of course I am thankful for but I think he could update his
wardrobe occasionally, even if it’s just to get rid of those ancient undercrackers!

He went through a short-lived stage of buying designer
brands before he had me in his life, which did little to help his financial
situation at the time. He had a thing
for French Connection, the jeans, the belt, the hat, the coat… he was a walking
advert for the brand when we first met. 
I think he liked the cheeky play on the brand wording, as he was a bit
of a boy in his time!!!

He went
straight to the shop itself, I do not think he realised he could have bought
the jeans.t-shirts and hoodies from a shop like mandmdirect
for a fraction of the price. But back in those days he was not quite so savvy with money,
like paying for a subscription to Sky maintenance for a whole year after he had
cancelled Sky!!! I took the bull by the
horns and quickly went through his bank statements with a fine toothcomb and
got rid of any unnecessary expenses… along with blowing my small savings on
getting him out of the red.

Finally he can return to his love of designer brands
and all things French Connection without panicking about our bank account
getting into a pickle!!!
