The Boys Looking Stylish in Phoenix in their New Shirts

Since earlier in the week there was a post was about girlfriends and shopping (at the #LoveChicos Event, here), I figured it’d only be equally fair to compose a post about shopping for the boys!

Let me give you a little background on these wonderful men above! First, there is my husband, Rob, who many of you have met before in a couple of our men’s fashion posts, here, here & here. And then say “hello” to Jean. Jean & his wife, JoAnne, actually live across the street from us in Denver. However, they are also snowbirds, and spend the winter in Phoenix where it doesn’t snow or get too cold (at least most of the time). And as the wonderful human beings that they are, they invited us to visit them in their casita (that’s what they call it)!!

On this trip in Arizona, we happened to go shopping (surprising, I know). Of course, let me be clear that it was JoAnne, Rob & I that went shopping. Jean went golfing–ha ha!! But JoAnne and I decided we would do a little shirt shopping for Jean. And since I am a fashion blogger, we told him that he had to wear what I picked out for him. Needless to say, I think he was a little nervous about what I’d bring home for him! Wouldn’t you be?

And you wouldn’t believe the stipulations that came with this adventure. I was told by JoAnne, when we got to Stein Mart, that Jean doesn’t like stripes, or many other details or colors for that matter!!

Jean’s Shirt: But Jean does like blue!!

So the three of us picked out about 4 shirts for Jean. One was specifically bought for casual events. But from the other shirts, he got to pick which one that he wanted to wear that evening out to dinner! And this is the shirt he chose! What do you think? Isn’t it spectacular? I know you can’t really tell from these photos, but it really brings out the blue in his eyes!!

I didn’t get the name brand on this shirt, but I found a couple of options on my shopping site that are similar. One is this shirt that is denim, there’s this one or even this one that isn’t quite as bright!

I really think that a fun, colorful shirt can make any guy look like a million bucks! Can I hear an amen?!!

Rob’s Shirt: Now since, I showcased Jean, I couldn’t leave out my husband, could I?

And somehow, someway, my sweetie got a new shirt also!! Rob is pretty much the exact opposite of Jean when it comes to shopping. He is game for trying anything now that I’ve infiltrated his life! And he even enjoys going with me to the stores and will carry the packages! I call that the best husband ever!!

His shirt is a crazy print with a contrasting material on the cuffs! Since he brought it home with him, I was able to check it and see that the brand is Tallia! I’m not sure about the brands that they sell at Stein Mart. Are they off brands or extras? We don’t usually shop at Stein Mart in Denver, but they do have a great selection of both men’s and women’s clothes!

Anyways, back to Rob’s outfit. The print on his shirt is quite abstract, but I found one here, that has flamingos! What do you mean that your man would never wear that? Okay, okay, so how about this one instead–it’s camo so it should be considerable more masculine, right? And one more for your viewing pleasure, here!

Now you may think it’s superficial and silly to care about what you wear. But when it comes right down to it, who doesn’t enjoy a little attention about one’s outfits? I mean, just look at the smiles on these two boys!! Having their women gush over them about how nice they looked, made them feel great (even if they won’t admit it!).

Now I couldn’t leave out us ladies on this post! I mean we all know the truth that behind every great man there is a great woman! So here is JoAnne and myself right before the guys took us to dinner! You can see that I wore the skirt which caused me all kinds of problems in the velvet post here! I definitely think this outfit turned out much better with this skirt than the other one.

And even though I realize that the subject of this post was all about the guy’s new shirts, how can we finish this post and not say anything about the jewelry us ladies are wearing? This heart shaped necklace of JoAnne’s is by a designer who, of course, her name I cannot remember! I didn’t realize that turquoise came in such a vibrant green, but I found one sorta like it here or more green here. My necklace was bought on this same shopping excursion as the boys and really reminds me of the one I was lusting over at Chicos, here or even this one!

Thanks for joining the 4 of us on our little Phoenix shopping excursion!! Do you ever shop when you go on vacation?

The Facts

Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.

What this means is that when you click on a linked item, I receive a couple of cents. Those couple of cents can certainly add up! So I appreciate it if you keep clicking to help support Jodie’s Touch of Style!

And for the off chance that your man doesn’t shy away from print shirts, I rounded up some others to check out:

  • I like the bright print shirts – that look has grown on me over the years. And I really like the grey Neiman Marcus one in your selection above.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much!!
      I know some of my friend’s husbands would never wear such a bright print—but why blend in all the time??

  • Love the shirts but my favorite is Rob’s sneakers. Love the plaid!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they fun?? I made him buy those a couple of years ago—and it’s amazing how much he wears them!!
      Thanks Molly!!

  • Austin Hodgens

    Clearly, your blog’s overall message is that Austin needs more color and style in his wardrobe. Message received!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It can certainly help those rainy Maine days, Austin!! Trust me—you buy a bright blue shirt and everyone will be talking!!

  • Lee Gaitan

    I love our necklace! The guys look pretty darn dapper!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I love it when the guys look great!!
      Thanks for the kind words—I’m actually wearing this necklace right now!! 🙂

  • Fun post Jodie-I am so glad you got to go to Arizona and tell the boys they look adorable. And as far as shopping on vacation, we are horrible!!!!!! If we go by a Pendleton outlet, we are in BIG trouble.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      But for those of us who actually like to shop, it’s fun to do it in other cities!! Because there are other items that aren’t always available in our cities—at least that’s what I tell myself!!

  • Rebecca Phillips

    I love the smiles here. The shirts that look fabulous and un-tucked are the rage now for men. They look sleek.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Rebecca!

  • The guys are having too much fun and looking stylish as well!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they cute? Thanks so much Elle!

  • That is so sweet that your hubby enjoys going with you, Mine will tolerate it but honestly it’s more fun to go without him because he doesn’t enjoy it. So fun that you picked them both out shirts. I like them! Your blue and polka dot skirt is perfect too!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I am quite lucky to have Rob enjoy going with me. Not to say there aren’t times he’s over it! But as long as I include ice cream or some kind of snack–he’s 100% with me!! (and who says husbands aren’t like kids?? ha ha)

  • Great pick!!! The boys clearly loved posing for this post 😛

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Doesn’t it just make you smile, Ivana?!
      Thanks for this!!

  • Your ,,Ron,, sounds like such a nice man! And the shirts are fantastic! Inloggen it when men have an interest in what they wear!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It is nice when the guys care about their appearance, Nancy!!

  • Judy Gramith

    The abstract shirts on Rob and Jean are great for Florida and Phoenix, even California but I don’t think you’ll see a lot after men wearing those colorful abstracts elsewhere … which is a shame.
    Color does the same good things for eyes and hair and skin tone for both sexes!!!
    Also, you ladies look very sporty and cute and ready for those two handsome gents to take you out on the town!
    A fun post!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It’s so true that many men won’t wear these bright colors all the time—and it’s such a bummer!
      In fact, Jean’s wife just emailed me and said Jean hasn’t worn this shirt again since that night we went out!! She’s going to bring it to Denver though—and I’ll change that! Ha ha!!

  • Oh wow the guys look great! And you gals look pretty good too. I know the weather is nice in Phoenix now. I am a snowbird too but only stay about 6 weeks because I start missing home. But much of my family lives in Phoenix so I stay up on the weather! Also, I lived in Phoenix for 10 years and know that March is a perfect time of the year weather wise. So have tons of fun!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      We really had such a great time!! Maybe next time we should meet up there–it’ll be better than Idaho or Colorado, probably!!

  • PetiteOver40

    I love that you devote part of your blog to “the guys”! It’s just fun to get them involved, and to get ideas for my own Hubby! Rob and Jean both look spectacular! And they do look like they’re having fun. 🙂


    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m glad you like this part too, Sherry!!
      I mean why not? My mom’s always say we are joined at the hip, so Rob might as well be involved!!!

  • Charlotte Miller

    The guys are looking so sharp!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they?? 🙂

  • donnanance

    The fellas look like they are having a blast! Nice casual looks on both men…

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they the cat’s meow?? All I need is some good music and it’d be a party!!

  • How lovely to see your husband. Handsome man. The four of you were a stylish bunch.
    A husband who takes your photos and goes shopping… fantastic. You say, behind every great man there is a great woman. Can we perhaps also say: behind every great (female) blogger there is a (husband) photographer?
    Ron used to shop with me too. Many a time. For 4 hours on a stretch. That changed 10 years ago. He had had it. No more. Too bad for me.
    As for your ensemble… very elegant. I love the skirt and you styled it well. I would long for a red top (I am so unimaginative), but I would need a third colour then and would probably grab a white belt. Your styling is more creative.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You are ever so kind, Greetje!!
      And yes, we always say that I hit the jackpot when I married Rob (well, sometimes we say crackpot–ha ha)—he is such the saint!!
      And the saying of behind every female blogger is the husband photographer is oh, so true. You have seen the video of the Instagram husband, right? It’s hilarious. If you haven’t, I can send you the link–or google it!!
      You may not believe this, but I don’t have a shirt the same color as these large polka dots. I have reds, but they seem so different in comparison. And lord knows, I don’t need to go shopping, right? But maybe a white shirt would be another fun option?? I’ll tuck that away in the brain for future outfits!!
      Happy Weekend, my love!!

      • Yes I saw the Instagram Husband video haha. Just keep your eyes open for red tops. It doesn’t have to happen immediately. I think red would suit you.
