Korean men take fashion seriously. Seriously. It’s not uncommon to see men wearing shirts and ties to work and even on a weekend. They dress formally when they attend special occasions like weddings, funerals and birthdays. It’s also not uncommon to see men wearing suits and women in their stilletos in a mountain on a Sunday afternoon.
My sister-in-law told me that it’s the woman’s duty to dress her husband. Women here dress well so I guess they’d like their partners to match how they look. I’ve never really shopped for my husband. I just remember buying him a couple of sweaters for men on my trip abroad. I thought that my husband’s clothing needs is pretty simple.
My husband is not into jeans. He preferskhaki pants for casual weekends and khaki shorts in the summer. He usually pairs them with white t-shirts as he dislikes colorful ones. He’s such a simple dresser, I sometimes think he’s not Korean. LoL!
