FYI, we all have problems   Hey, I got a new wallet today.  I've wanted a brown alligator for the longest time and got it at Bergdorfs.  Very happy.
Now do the following: 1) Fill wallet with money 2) Remove money from wallet 3) Trade money for more shirts

What is the difference between English and Italians shirts in term of quality of cotton ?

> 100 but not certain because if i ever counted i might decide i have too many(as if that's really possible when it come to shirts & ties ). every so often my wife does a count when she's annoyde about yet another purchase (usually i try to bring stuff in when she's not looking)..

Over 300 shirts: 75+ Brioni 50+ Kiton 25+ Borrelli 25+ Lorenzini 10+ Loro Piana 10+ Gucci 25+ Zegna plus several each of just about every brand mentioned (e.g., 10+ linen Banana Republic ones, etc.). Let's do a cashmere sweater poll--I'll ante-up with 200+.

With your posts in the "what are you wearing" thread, this comes as quite a shock to everyone, I'm sure.

200 cashmere sweaters? Man, that's like 2.3 winters' worth.

It does take several winters to wear them all.

I also have a large number of shirts. I'm not sure if it's over 300. I'd have to count them, and that means I'd have to unpack them all. I keep buying them though... I suspect that that means I have a slight problem. I think I might also have a problem with shoes, though I certainly own fewer than 300 pairs (much less than that, thankfully- I'd feel like Imelda Marcos if I topped 100, or even 50. 30 though... As for cashmere sweaters, I have less than 20. I like them though, and envy the man who owns 200- assuming they are all nice.

I don't envy a man who needs sweaters in the first place.

Heh. And touche. I do like a nice sweater, and in some climates (I've lived above the arctic circle, though I was a bit young for cashmere) they are the equivalent of the T-Shirt. Anyway, women _love_ cashmere sweaters. They keep coming up to you and rubbing their hands all over your chest. They might not like you much, but they love your fabric- it's the one thing women can reliably assess when it comes to men's clothing. The man who really doesn't need a sweater is- well, these days, me. But don't envy us tropical fellows too much. Try wearing even a summer weight suit in the tropics. Try wearing a jacket- try a linen one, or seersucker, or whatever you think will stand up to this climate. I do wear a jacket a lot of the time, but I suffer while wearing one, nine months of the year. Let's not get started on suits. I also have to choose my clothing carefully- I saw a jacket I really wanted a few days ago, but on reflection I realized that I would never wear it, because it would never be cool enough here to wear it comfortably. And, of course, there is a large amount of wardrobe I bought for other climes, that I cannot wear at all here. Flannel is in season for about three days. I just wish I could wear my sweaters, before a roaring fire...

AK: just 500 shirts? Can't believe you lose to some of your own clients. Better catch up.
