My boyfriend is always struggling with fashion and how he looks, his main problem is that he is very feminine and has a very round face.
He is 5'3 130 pounds, black hair and olive skin. I'm 5'7 in no heels. a lot of the time we are left looking like the real odd couple.
But he has trouble pulling together an outfit, especially since he's so small. his jeans are 29 X 29. Sorry for all the measurements, but I want everyone to really get just how small he is.
His style is something of a cross between Express and a very well put together leather rocker, with heavy military influences
If you have any ideas on where to get some really nice, but relatively cheap clothes, and most certainly a hairstyle, and face regimen that would be great.
I'm hoping to surprise him for his birthday by getting him some of this stuff so he will feel better. :3 Thanks guys!

Well I know the feeling. I'm a similar size as your boyfriend and have a hardtime finding clothes, but I do put a lot of effort into it and girls always compliment me on my style.
I prefer stores like H&M, express, Gap, banana republic, Guess, Armani Exchange, Pac Sun, True Religion. I don't know there are just so many stores.
The trick is to shop online. It's hard to find small stuff in the store. Fortunately for me I started lifting weights so I can fit in adults smalls instead of extra smalls. And my pant size went from 28-32. Utilize a tailor if need be, mostly to shorten up pants, or to better fit dressier clothes, like a dress shirt or sport coat.
Make sure he doesn't wear his clothes too big. Big clothes make a small person look smaller. His clothes should be a bit more form fitting, shirts and pants.
Hair is a hard one because its really just depends on the persons natural hair type, but he should definitely use gel and style it. Look at celebrities for ideas, since they have top notch stylists who are doing their hair for them.
Accessorize. Yeah it works for guys to. A nice leather bracelet, maybe a cool chain pendent necklass, or even piercings.
It's a good you are buying if for him. Telling a guy to dress different doesn't usually work and he'll just get defensive. But if you buy things as a gift not only is he likely to wear them to please you, but its a subtle way of hinting what you like to see him wear but won't put him on the defensive.0
