I also have like 10 pairs of shoes and there's a reason for each of them. Looking at them I can't think of any I could get rid of. But in the abstract I'm thinking "why don't I just have 1 pair of boots, 2 pairs of dress shoes, and one pair of sneakers." That kind of stuff.

Do I need more than 10 dress shirts? More than 5?

I have like 30 ties. I could probably do with only 5.

I hate to use the word "versatile" but I feel like I ought to be able to make do with far less if I were really careful about the choices of what to buy.

And so I feel like I need to get rid of half my stuff, but I also feel like I need to buy a bunch of new things in order to have the few perfect pieces I need. .

tl;dr: clothes ffffuuuu.gif

 

For somebody that gets dressed in biz cas or wears a suit to work each day (I assume you are in the former) you legitimately need 10 dress shirts (I prefer 15). This way you can go to the cleaners once on the weekend and always have enough shirts to get you through the week.

For shoes, I would say you need two pairs for work. Putting your shoes in trees and giving them a full 36 hours to "air-out" before their next wearing will prolong their life meaningfully. Plus, you're going to want one pair in black and one in brown anyways.

Ties - Yeah, you probably don't need more than 10-15.

As for the one off weird things (tux, plaid pants), so long as your closet isn't jammed with these sort of things, just keep them. While their use is limited, having them around when you need them is part of what constitutes real style. I have a velvet blazer that I pretty much only wear during Christmas, but it kicks ass every Christmas and that's what I like about it.

I don't have the shirts literally drycleaned. I just have them laundered and pressed at the cleaners. I put a premium on my free time so for me it's worth it to have somebody else my shirts for me.

I remember reading somewhere that among compulsive shoppers, the rush comes more from the process of shopping than from actual ownership.

RE: Yoox -- You can get some really good deals if you buy past-season stuff (right now, FW). Otherwise, meh.

it depends on the brands you're interested in. my tastes just happen to align with the stuff yoox tends to stock most often (like, euro/minimal/blazery things)

You need to drink a lot of fluids, chamomile tea is always good when you have the flu.
