MoL...thanks for sharing your collections with us. Man the shoes section looked like a over crowded market ! What were you thinking ? trying to create you own shoe store !!
Just kidding. I still think with some proper design shelving you can re organize your shoe collections. Honestly how do you walk in to that room without tumbling in to pool of shoes. And just 2 questions how many pairs in total and how many pairs of shoe trees do you have ?

Please...no questions on makes...it would take too long to type. As I stated in an earlier post, this is what happens when things get out of control....these photos show about half of my wardrobe. I am a sick man. Don't let this happen to you unless you have a stately mansion to store it all (which I don't). It takes me 3 days just to lotion my shoes. This is why I run the No Purchase Club..to help other souls stop themselves from commiting this insanity.

Thank you for showing this. I can now show this to my wife to prove I need more sport coats, shoes, suits, shirts, ties, belts, and socks biggrin.gif

You can't get rid of three! (is it more brown or green?)

P.S. I am at work and have avatars turned off. Does not help when I click on your profile to see if you are my size in case I can snag your extra stuff facepalm.gif

I might have missed it. This is all your wardrobe minus whats in the laundry.

Did you want to move storage clothes into this space? I think if you just trim the SCs, maybe combine socks/UW drawer you will have room to breathe.

It is a good comparison you made. I do literally, have my own personaly store.
What was I thinking? Probably something like this..., 'Oh those are nice! (Cha-ching)' shog[1].gif
How do I walk in there? With great difficulty but it can be done.
Dress shoes - 50 pr
Casual shoes - 50 pr
Beaters, Beater boots, sneakers, etc (all combined) - 40 pr
Shoe Trees - ~100 pr

Believe me, there are members on here and people 'out there' who have much more.
They are out there.

I forgot the socks....here's a sampler (yes there are more, a lot more)

165

What I didn't show were raincoats, topcoats, waistcoats, summerwear, streetwear, ties, bags, briefcases, wallets/billfolds, watches and cufflinks, etc ,etc ...this is making me physically ill... I don't want to think about it.

MOL, very nice way to store socks. My socks drawer is a mess. Will try to organize tomorrow.

MoL - I now fully understand why you run the NPC every month, you have amassed quite a collection there.

Lesson learned from this: this weekend, I am going to clean out my closet and put those I rarely use on ebay; before it's too late.

If it's a 42L or 44L then I think you should get rid of it biggrin.gif

But seriously, I really like the colors!

The socks looks really organised. Please share pix of your whole "Store".

This works pretty well for me.
Essentially a re-worked Ikea package.
My wife's is similar, though about 30% larger and she can walk in about 2'. She wanted more box type storage (versus hanging) for Shoes. I internally illuminated it with Juno strip LED's.

I would bet you can fold the shirts and put them all underneath the suits and sport coats. Also get a tie rack and re-use that space. I had to use a different closet for storage of non-seasonal stuff. Other than that I dont see much besides a major undertaking. Or you could install another hanging bar somewhere out of the way... :\

I'm going to show this to my girlfriend the next time she says I have too many clothes that are taking up too much space. I currently own 5 SC, 3 suits, and 6 pairs of dress boots.
