For size reference my husband is 5′ 11″ and he fluctuates between 210-216 pounds. He is size XL in tops and size 35 in pants and jeans with a 30″ inseam. He takes size 38 in belts.

Peloton bike (use his referral code E8NBRG for $100 towards accessories with your purchase) | Finley Home Tranquility Wooden Shutter Room Divider
My husband got the Peloton bike for his birthday last month which is the covered object that’s reflected in the window in the middle. He’s been using the bike almost daily and so far he’s gone on 17 rides in about 3 weeks so I’m glad that it hasn’t become an expensive coat rack and collecting dust. I really should use the bike too but I only tried it once just to see what it was like to snap in/snap out with the special bike shoes and I took one of the short scenic rides. He’s 5′ 11″ so if I started using it too then we would need to adjust the bike between each use (yes, I catch myself making excuses so hopefully I will stop being lazy soon).
He was also concerned about the width of the bike shoes since he has wider feet but he found them to be a comfortable width (and my size was true to size as well). The were two guys that delivered and setup the bike and they were very professional. One very patient and helpful specialist stayed to explain the features of the bike as well as how to snap in and snap out of the pedals with the bike shoes which can take some getting used to.
I took a random photo of my husband taking one of the pre-recorded classes below.

This long sleeve polo shirt is my husband’s favorite item and it also looks great with the slim traveler pant (true to size, review here) as seen below. The creases/wrinkles came out after washing in cold and line drying. He couldn’t wait to wear it to work and he said that it’s so soft you would want to wear it to sleep. My husband even suggested that I get another one of these shirts for my dad.

Patagonia Jackson Glacier Jacket, size XL
My husband loves this puffer jacket and his usual size XL fits him well. He said it is warmer than his Marmont puffer since this one is 700-fill-power.
AUGUST 16, 2019
I ordered the following items for my husband during the latest Cardmember sale for 50% off plus an extra 10% off at Banana Republic with the codes BRCARD50 and BRCARD (you can apply both codes at checkout). The new mid top sneakers fit him true to size and they look amazing with the new rapid movement jeans I purchased for him in the new wash. The waist of the new jeans are more snug but the material has a nice stretch to them which makes them comfortable.
MARCH 4, 2019
If you have a Banana Republic card you can get 50% off plus an extra 10% off at Banana Republic with the codes BRCARDFF and BRCARD (you can apply both codes at checkout).

DECEMBER 10 ,2018
My husband picked up these two items on sale this past weekend. The jacket says that it’s excluded from the promotion online but in stores we were able to buy it on sale for $64.37 after discounts. Even the sales associate wanted to buy the jacket as a present.

NOVEMBER 9, 2018
We just received these slim rapid movement denim medium wash jeans tonight and my husband liked the wash. He fit his usual size 35 x 30 which measured: 37″ waist, 11″ rise, 29″ inseam, 16″ ankle opening. He noticed that the inseam was a bit shorter and my measurements confirm that as well but I like it since that means his jeans won’t scrunch as much on the bottom when he’s wearing shoes.

My husband’s outfit details today:
OUTFIT DETAILS: Banana Republic Grant Slim-Fit Luxe Flannel Plaid Shirt, size XL | Marmont Zeus Down Jacket 800 fill, size XXL (old from 2014, similar here) | Banana Republic Slim Traveler Pant in asphalt gray, size 35 x 30 | Banana Republic Nicklas Leather Sneakers (true to size)
NOVEMBER 4, 2018
Here are my husband’s picks from the Banana Republic Friends & Family sale (if you have a Gap Inc. card you can use codes BZ38L2VQRDWL for 50% off and no merchandise exclusions + BRCARD for an extra 10% off):
Banana Republic Nicklas Leather Sneakers
He loves these beautiful leather cognac sneakers which are $57.60 with the aforementioned cardmember codes so we bought two in black and two in cognac since he always wears the same styles on repeat. I hadn’t bought him a big new haul for casual clothing since 2012 so it was a long overdue shopping trip.
OUTFIT DETAILS: Banana Republic Grant Slim-Fit Luxe Flannel Plaid Shirt, size XL | Banana Republic Slim Traveler Pant in khaki, size 35 x 30 | Banana Republic Nicklas Leather Sneakers
My husband also likes these Travelers Slim Pants which we got two of each color (in khaki, stay black and asphalt gray). He had to go down one size from his usual to size 35 x 30 since they have a lot of stretch.
Banana Republic Water-Resistant Quilted Bomber Jacket, size XL | See the navy color on him here
He also got this quilted bomber jacket in both colors and I wanted him to size down to size L for a closer fit but he preferred his usual size XL for comfort and extra length. Update 11/8: He decided to only keep the navy color and he will return the olive color.
Uniqlo Men Seamless Down Coat, size XL
My husband took this down coat in his usual size XL.
Thanks for stopping by!
