My boyfriend and I live together at my parents and share a closet. I noticed that he doesn't have many newer clothes. Most of his clothes he has have holes in them or stains. He tells me he's had most of them since high school. I told him if he can't afford to get a few clothes a month to replace his old holey clothes, I would buy him more. I went out a few days ago to Walmart and bought him a pack of white T's n two pairs of jeans. He wears these things on a regular basis, so it isn't like I'm trying to change him. All I'm trying to do is help him out a little bit. He didn't seem to get mad and he really didn't say anything about it, but he didn't seem too thrilled either.
Guys, how should I interpret this and would you be mad if your girl did this as well?

It wouldn't bother me, because I know I have terrible taste in clothes. Any time someone has complimented me on something I'm wearing, it's an item that was bought for me by a girl.
In your case, it's possible that he has the money for new clothes, but that looking good in new clothes is a low priority thing for him. He doesn't care about his appearance.
You buying the clothes for him, kind of makes him feel weird. It's a little emasculating, and it's a little bit of you saying "Clothes matter, stop spending your money on frivolous shit and buy yourself a clean shirt once in a while"0
