how do i tell him to get with the program and buy some new cloths without making him feel bad?
Some guys need a girl's touch with things like that. It doesn't exactly make you a bad person that you want to "tweak" him a bit. In a relationship you should complement each other.
It all depends how you approach it. Don't go and buy him clothes then throw his old ones away then tell him "you're wearing this now." But more like do what Austin said. He'll be less defensive that way.
You are not shallow because you want him to get better clothes. You are actually doing him a favor in the end.
