Minimalism is one way to look at it. I've started implementing the "One" concept to make sure that I have my wardrobe fundamentals available at all times. I love grey suits, bengal stripe shirts, grey pants, navy blazer, brown cap toe shoes etc. Now, instead of having to restrict wearing those items to once a week or once every two weeks (lest I wear them out or have to go to the dry cleaners 2x/week), I have multiples so I can wear them as much as I want. I still like to have some more idiosyncratic stuff in my wardrobe (glen plaid trousers, tan shoes, loud sportcoat, etc) that I might be in the mood to wear from time to time, but they are extraneous to my core wardrobe and I'm not forced to include them in my rotation.
