I feel that is trending toward the OnePost.

That would be detrimental to SF traffic, would not recommend.

Funnily enough, I got one pair of gray twill trousers I really like and I was thinking of wearing them a 3rd day in a row which would be unprecedented for me. I doubt 99% of people in the workplace would notice if you wore a pair of grey pants for even an entire week as long as you kept changing your shirt/jacket.

I have already pioneered this concept. Case in point:

I had a schoolmteacher who had two black DB suits, one with white pin stripes and one with red, and that was all anyone ever saw him wear for decades. He rode a bike to school every day too, in rain, snow, slush, heat, smog ... Tramp!

Are you seriously comparing the conspicuousness of black striped double breasted suits with mid grey odd trousers?

You guys put too much thought into precise shades of things. To my mind, there is light grey, mid grey, and dark grey (charcoal, if you like). Within each category, the cloth's other characteristics are what matter to me.

I agree. My "office pants" are all mid-grey or charcoal except for one mini-check and one british tan. I doubt anybody pays any mind.

I'm going to say a mid-grey Italian worsted flannel for winter, and tan linen for summer.

My tailor recently suggested that I try grey trousers in a kind of covert coat material -- I'm somewhat tempted. But I may just go with another cavalry twill. Tan is my mid-grey though (dark in winter, light in summer).

Well, maybe you have a different situation than I do. I am "the clothes guy" in the office, so people take note of what I wear. A co-worker did once notice that I had worn a pair of pants twice in a week.

Let's not forget Foo is 'one of the best-dressed men in America' as voted by Esquire magazine.
There are probably blogs dedicated to what he likes to wear

Why did the pants shrink?

Fault of the cloth? Or did the cleaner wash them by mistake?

I think I almost have a OneWardrobe.

I have a OneTrouser for winter which is a grey wool/cashmere flannel (two shades, charcoal and dark grey but no-one notices) and a OneTrouser for summer, which is bone cotton.
These go with all the sportcoats I have. I've tried other colours but have never been happy so now I'm satisfied. I have about six pairs of both.
I have almost a OneShirt - light blue either solid or blue and white stripes in various thicknesses.
I think I have a OneTie too - solids or miniscule patterns in navy mainly, an olive, brown and deep purple and some grey cashmeres.
OneSuit? Getting there. Winter is navy and grey flannel. Summer is airforce blue and light grey lightweight wool.
OneSportcoat? More variation. Winter is navy, two grey and one brown. Summer is cotton and linen in navy, denim blue and lighter brown.
OneShoe? No, but nothing beyond brown or black captoes or loafers. Desert boots for summer casual.
I don't think any of this will come as a surprise to anyone.

Almost none of this can be considered oneanything You have 4 sport coats for winter? How can it be a onesportcoat? HOw can you have a onetie if there are solids and patterns in various colors? That all sounds like a regular wardrobe to me.

But it's in the OneSpirit. The point is to get away from collecting clothes and get closer to thinking about clothes that you look good in and feel comfortable with. When it comes down to it, the OneShoe isn't an absolute OneShoe--it's really the concept and approach behind it that distinguishes.
