When Men Dress Their Wives: Would Geeks Do Better?

I don’t usually troll Yahoo! for inspiration, but when I saw this post about men dressing their wives I had to click. While not all geek women share my love of fashion, I can safely say that my amazing husband just simply has no clue. At this point in our relationship he’s just learned to smile and nod and realize that when it comes to what I wear, we really can’t meet eye-to-eye.

At any rate, some of the women in this slide show actually benefited from their husband’s input. Others, not so much (see the poor woman in the photo to the right). But I wonder… would geek couples fare better in this situation? Maybe I’m just majorly biased, but in spite of our sartorial differences, I can’t help but think my husband would put together something pretty nifty for me. Or at very least, he wouldn’t make me look like a drunken college co-ed…
