Also, you guys seem to own a ton of jackets, at least the guys in the WAYWN thread. How many should you own? I kind of was brought up to have one jacket for winter, one for spring/fall, and I never wore one for summer. Obviously that's different for you guys. Any suggestions on different jackets? I checked H&M today and I really liked some of the regular green, khaki, or blue colored ones.
Look, you only need
one jacket, one pair of trousers, one pair of underwear, a pair of shoes and a pair of socks. And a shirt of some sort
. What the real question issue is, however, is what you, I, and everyone else here fancies
. For instance I don't need the sheer amount of socks I have (I just realised that I have two drawers full). And I am looking at more that look good to me.
Just pick and choose what you like and makes sense to you. If you are comfortable with one jacket that you like, then that is all you need. The peeps here will be able to help you at least sort through the rubbish out there and guide you to what the quality is like on various garments as well as expose you to many things you may not have seen before.
