Question by C J: Building up a wardrobe after a fire?
My friend is going to be coming tomorrow evening to live with me after a fire destroyed his condo across the country. Thankfully everyone is ok and he had his wallet and cat when he left but he has no clothing other than what a friend who he is staying with gave him to use.
I would like to have a pretty good wardrobe all set up for him when he comes. I have all his measurements from when I had him fitted for a tux for my wedding. I just need an idea of all the little odds and ends, specific articles of clothing, accessories, etc that a man would need. We will be so busy helping him set up office in my house and taking care of all the legal stuff there is to do that we wont have time to shop for the next week or so, in that time we have 3 parties (one needing a tux) to attend so I need things for that too.
Also, we live in New England so we need winter things too! Money is no issue.
Thanks for your help making out my shopping list
I understand your concern Amber. But he does know I am doing this and I have been picking out clothing with him for years, hes my best friend. I am only asking so that I don’t miss anything. I have a tendency to forget something small yet essential (like when I forgot to pack bras last vacation)
Answer by Amber T
why not just let him buy what he wants. if he doesn’t have clothes he can go shopping online. Buying clothes for someone else is not that easy, if it was you wouldn’t be asking total strangers what to buy. You really need to know his style and tastes to be able to do something like that. I think it was a good idea but it can possibly backfire.
