I am glad to see that I am not the only one having a closet space problem!
I am seriously wondering what kind of closets some guys here have...
I recently refrained from buying a pair of shoes because I didn't know which pair I should throw away.
I think I have bought three pairs of shoes this year (one pair of brown or chestnut Ferragamos and one pair of light brown Ballys -a nice and rare colour it was-, and during sales a pair of blue Bally sneakers that I count as shoes because I feel that the leather is good quality and that they look great with white or beige denim or other light colour cotton trousers).
(I actually didn't through any shoes away because I found a way of getting more shoes into the closet, but now I have decided that the limit is definitely reached).
(I will definitely buy less shoes in the future because I am ideologically against consuming more than what you actually need, although on the other hand I have no brown ankle boots and I could really do with a pair of those)
(Oh, I just detected that I forgot three pair of Clarks shoes (I think it is a Spanish brand) that I bought this year, they are quite inexpensive (around USD 130 at retail price, normally 30% of during sales) and very comfortable for walking. However, they are not to be worn with a suit; I use them in my free time, great for walking my doggies. They are of a kind of suede-like material -I have forgotten the name of it- and quite resistive to dirt.
