Shopping haul with my husband
A few weeks ago I posted a photo on my Instagram stories of my husband wearing a new blazer from Australian menswear brand, MJ Bale. It got a huge reaction so I quickly put a poll on my stories asking if my followers would like me to do a blog post on my husband’s recent shopping haul from MJ Bale for autumn and winter in Australia. It received a 100% vote saying yes.
As a result of taking part in the F45 8-Week Challenge at the end of 2018 he lost a significant amount of weight and toned up to what he was like when serving in the British Army. This meant he needed new clothes – it seemed like a whole new wardrobe as nothing fitted him. I was more than happy to help on this shopping haul!!
I am very lucky to have a husband who supports me in what I love and editing this blog. He pretty much takes all the photos I post. Like me, he also like fashion.
In the UK his favourite menswear brand is Hackett. Here in Australia he loves the MJ Bale brand, style and the pieces from the new collection. Its got to the point that half is wardrobe – summer and winter is now from MJ Bale.
I loved everything he picked out and we had a great time shopping together. I am also very pleased that he wears everything he bought – not like me who waits for that lunch, event, dinner or party to wear my new clothes! The pieces are also good in that they all match with things already in his wardrobe.
I have included pictures of all the new pieces he bought – from blazer to chinos, jackets to jumper – either of him wearing it or just of the piece. I love all of these menswear pieces and would love to know your thoughts. All of his shirts are slim fit from British shirt makers TM Lewin and Charles Tyrwhitt.
He works in a corporate office and loves to wear tailored suits, double cuffed shirts and a tie to work in the week, but as a result of these new purchases is spending at least a couple of days each week in smart-casual.
Here is the shopping haul.
