My boyfriend Michael and I have been dating exactly two years today, and I thought it’d be nice to get him something. It’s pretty rare that we give each other material gifts, which is simply a personal preference. I’d rather experiences, like a fancy dinner at a place we’ve never tried before or concert tickets…stuff like that. Sometimes, we don’t give each other anything because we’d rather save the money for a trip. So for this two-year thing, I thought I’d change it up.

LSU football season is exactly 22 days away and Michael has never really had a go-to game day shirt. He’s one of those practical people that wears a lightweight t-shirt come tailgate time. Bor-RING! (No offense if you’re reading this, bud) Moreover, he rarely spends money on clothing. I know this isn’t exactly a sentimental gift or a surprise since I’m posting about it, but I think he’ll appreciate it nonetheless.

As you can see, I have more options from Southern Marsh than any other brand. That’s because I did a write-up on Southern Marsh for inRegister and the guys over there couldn’t have been nicer; and I also like buying local when it’s available and high-quality, which it usually is.

Sidenote: Apparently yellow is not a popular color for men’s shirts this season. It was difficult to find any appealing, yellow options.

This indecisive chica needs your help though! Which one do you think I should get? Please leave a comment or email your vote to becca@bitsyandboo.com. And have a great weekend!

  1. I like the gadwell gingham. I think this input might be a little late though. Congratulations on yalls anniversary! I’m so happy for yall. Miss ya girl. Can’t wait to have a NOLA day!

  2. Thanks you for voting, ladies! I will be sure to keep the suggestions in mind! I guess it’d be nice of me to give Michael the final say, but we’ll have to wait and see.

  3. I think the galdwell or the windsor check!!! Can’t wait to see you guys! Congrats!

  4. That’s really nice of you, Becca, and I like the choices you have laid out because I am always looking for a new tailgating shirt for Winston. (He has worn the same one for the past, umm, 5 years.)

    I’m digging the Gadwell Gingham!

  5. I vote the Galdwell Gingham! Purple shirt with a gold duck? Game day perfection!

    Congrats on the anniversary! I’m still trying to figure out what to do for Eric’s 25 birthday tomorrow!!! I love the J. Crew secret wash end-on-end shirt personally. I think it would look great on Mike!
