post #96796 of 109053
This has been a topic that I've really enjoyed reading peoples opinions on

@conceptual 4est That makes a lot of sense.

A lot of the time instead of getting rid of stuff I'll just store it out of sight in my "archives." That way I can have the minimal, focused rotation and satisfy weird OCD desires but can still access that stuff if the urge arises.

I've sold so much shit over the years. No regrets.

Sounds like a soft sell for NMWA...haha, j/k. Your "more clothes" approach is more than reasonable. If you only own 10 MMM pieces forever or a sprawling clothing storage archive - ultimately, clothing here is a hobby and a hobby should be fun, no matter the approach.

 

However, I'd contend that this (growing a wardrobe) gets harder to do with a wife, a preschooler and toddler, all with whom I regularly negotiate space with.

rather thought provoking c4est, I'll need to reflect on that for a bit, thanks for sharing!

oh and is there no raf simons ss14 thread?
I searched and only found the js/rs shoppers thread, the rs/sr fw14 thread and fw12 thread, wanted to know how the outerwear fits for ss114

This. I know people who kinda save their good stuff because they're afraid to mess it up or wear it out. If I have something I like I wear it every chance I get.

Don't think that's what he meant.  Like, I have a super bright, shiny floral Dries shirt that is totally ridiculous, but I only wear it in certain situations because it's pretty much the loudest thing ever.  I'm not saving it because I don't want to mess it up, but because it's hard to pull off / I feel like wearing something easy that I don't have to think about 5-6 days a week.  I have a number of things like that.

I think this is fine, too. I've personally sold a lot here on B&S and ebay, mostly from my old days of BoO, Gitman, 21 oz denim sprees. It's a revolving door of trying stuff out, because honestly you will never know how much you'll like something until you actually see it on yourself and in the context of your lifestyle. For me, generally in order to buy something new I have to sell something, and in the end sometimes I wonder if I ever know what I really want. My closet is pretty small, maybe just about the size of what Regis typed out. But it can be a revolving door sometimes, and in that way it's really the opposite of minimalist (not to mention I dress like the gaudy dork anyways). I have since settled to a general "look", but still, even within the confines of that style there's much to be explored.

It's a lot of effort to buy and sell on the marketplace, always looking for that one thing, trying to battle lowballs, etc. But it's the only way I can shop with my budget, and I rarely am able to purchase something new at retail, though I wish I was able to to better support brands and shops that I like. I want to try so many brands out there, for example NMWA has picked up some great but obscure brands that I'd love to try. In the end you will probably have to play the marketplace at some point because you never know if that new brand becomes your next go to.

My issue is that I love a lot of SWD stuff but pretty much can only wear it 2 days a week.

seemed like he made both the point you're referring and a slightly separate one (wear your grails like beaters) but ok
