I think a minimal wardrobe works for people whose comfort level declines greatly as they stray away from their "favorite" stuff. Even before I joined this site, I felt most comfortable in a leather moto jacket, a tee, jeans, and boots. Part of why I joined and started posting was because I outgrew the jacket I loved and was looking to feel nearly as comfortable in other styles as i did in the original jacket. If you dug around you could probably find my unfortunate WAYWT posting history around that time, because even then, i felt most comfortable in a pleather moto jacket (was a vegetarian at that time), jeans (now APC instead of TR) and boots (now clarks or military surplus combat boots instead of timberlands) and, while I wanted, attempted, and, to an extent, got a handle on in different aesthetic directions, I wasn't nearly as happy in that clothing as I was in my bread-and-butter. Now that I can afford "real" clothing (and have grown out of vegetarianism) my go-to casual look is a ToJ moto, a Tee, APC's (now black), and Boots (currently deciding btw Black Aldens, Paul Smith Ricards, Trickers and Butteros or CP Officer's boots for my major F/W '11 purchase--no need for chunky black boots in the summer). It's what I like wearing the most, and I really don't see the need to spend money on clothing that isn't going to make me feel nearly as good as the style i know i like, feel good in and want to invest in.
