While I can't rely on my girlfriend for significant wardrobe items (the ones that need to fit), she's much better than I am regarding color, texture and pattern matching, both traditional and unexpected. Hence, she's great for accessories. She has found me new and vintage ties, watches, and cufflinks, and made great recommendations on t-shirts/casual wear. And though she knows her brands, she doesn't label check. She picks out some very distinctive items that I would never have found because I'm a slave to what I know. I hate to stereotype, and maybe I'm just blind, but pretty much any woman I know who would care what I wear is better at coordinating my clothes than I am. I can bring her a jacket/suit, three shirts and six ties and her decision is almost inevitably more creative than mine. She also prevents faux pas (plural sp?) on the casual end, which is a godsend. I am an idiot.
