This is at home, everything on 3 hangers broadly arranged by colour. I know I need another couple of hangers to space everything out.







Brands vary, but there's a fair few Drakes / Marinella, plenty of Sulka and T&A plus one or two from a lot of other makers.

There's also another rack in the office, plus some which have yet to make it to the rack.

The thing is, I can show this thread to my girlfriend, and she will still think I'm crazy. But she'll at least take comfort that I am in good company.

Vox's collection is of course pretty amazing, but having so many ties that each one might only be worn once every 3 years seems a bit much....

This gives me the chance to raise the issue and ask a question I've already asked before and never had much of a response. To those of you who have VAST clothing choices, what motivates your choice?

I have nowhere near the variety of some of the senior posters on here, but even from the modest selections available to me, on a summer day I can choose from white cotton picque SC, tan khaki SC, pin cord SC, seersucker SC, blue linen SC, tan linen SC, navy cotton blazer, etc. so what motivates those people with much bigger closets to make their choices, beyond either a feeling in their water or 'I haven't had this one on in a while'?

TC Houston stated that after his initial mistake of creating quantity in his closet, he more recently focused on quality, and trimmed back his collection aggressively to those items which he liked and wore the most, and I see myself following a similar path now. I've started by imposing a one out, one in policy, so hopefully only the quality will increase, not the quantity!

There's an interesting thread about that, but I forgot the name and don't know how to search it... Maybe someone else remembers?

i think bouronbasted started it. i think the word materialism is in the title. ill try and find it.

for many its just about collecting things of beauty they appreciate, not all that different from art.

I'm not sure that's the one I meant. It was from last year, I think, or even a year before that. Lot of Vox in it too (but that won't help you in your search smile.gif).

oh, this is what i was referring to. not sure the thread you meant. as i think about it, this thread is not quite addressing the above topic of collecting things that may not really get much use.

a fine thread nonetheless.

The Ethos Of Consumerism And Luxury Consumption

Very nice collections, guys. One thing I'm noticing is a paucity of certain brands like Hermès, Vineyard Vines, DolcePunta, and Stefano Ricci. I'm new here, so pardon my ignorance. Maybe I've just been blinded by the Wall Street snobs I work with all day...
