Allergic to Pants

I’ll try to answer everyone at once in one post.
 
Yes, the issue is not slobby or scruffy clothes but immodesty. My husband is the furthest thing from a slob so that’s not my issue. The issue is that he is so at ease with his immodesty and doesn’t clothe himself in the presence of other people. I call his preferred shorts "ratty" because they are old and worn out.

For example, here are the shorts:

Here are the shorts doing what they are supposed to do:

So, you can easily see they are short and tight. When he's working outside, with no shirt, wearing those things, it's revealing. When he's indoors, shirtless, it's still immodest. Guys at the gym jokingly rib him over his compression shorts for weightlifting so he knows I'm not the only one with issues here.

Yes, buying him a new pair of longer shorts is very doable. As for briefs to boxers comparison, that's a whole other topic. The issue is that he has other pairs of the same shorts which he does save for sport. I could find shorts but what about getting him to wear a shirt? But as Fontevrault said, it could just be a case of him having to come to terms with Christian morality over time. *Apologies in advance if the photos bother anyone. Tried to find demonstrative yet covered ones.

He has all kinds of athletic wear so there is no excuse he doesn't have something comfortable. There are times I laugh it off, like greatdame suggests, and others I say, really? Come on now, my mom is here. It bothers me most concerning his spiritual development and understanding of concepts of morality. It's not an issue to cause serious harm in our marriage but rather something I hope he'll understand.

As a cradle Catholic, modesty has been a lesson taught as long as I can remember. In his case, it is something that was only brought up 2 years ago. It's probably a case of me being too impatient with spiritual growth since the general concept of modesty is common knowledge to Catholics. (He's Orthodox but it's still the same concept on modesty.) So, I'd like to provide him with something he can learn himself (readings) than me voicing displeasure.

Quote:What was the name of that British sitcom of a wife who dearly loved her slob of all slob husbands? You might have to learn to just laugh it off.
Do you mean Keeping Up Appearances with Daisy's love for Onslow? :D
