Y'all didn't just use a moving service? Cost us like 1.5k to move from Seoul to Texas

Yup, already had a bunch of stuff shipped by sea, but needed the suits etc sooner than that. And sending them (unaccompanied) by air risked attracting a hefty customs charge

Someone here ridiculously quoted me $650 for pick-up and transport back to their facility near Incheon of 10cbm.

How much did you "move" with? 3 cbm?

I moved from Shanghai back to Melbourne last year. Had a container-load - furniture and 100 boxes. (Yep.)

 

Cost a lot of dough. But no breakages, everything was expertly packed and arrived in good order.

 

Then two months ago I had to move it all again - we bought an apartment.

 

I think I might stay put for a while now.

You dudes are giving me flashbacks. In the last 5 years I have done 3 international moves and 2 state side moves with another coming up. I'm just. ready. for it. to end.

I think it was about US$8k for a 20-foot container from DC to Dubai a year ago. Currently pricing containers again...this stuff does eat up a lot of money.

3. But we didn't go with the cheapest available

My current collection. May have some more sky blue lying around but this is the majority

Mcfox, tell me when you move next. I'll come by and switch bags with you.

I think international moves would turn me into a minimalist. Hell, when I moved to California from Texas, I jettisoned a ton of stuff. If it didn't fit in this, it didn't make the trip:

Impossible with a wife.

Ditching the wife is the first and most important step towards minimalism.

Depends on the wife.

So I will ditch the black white gingham. Keep the white Oxford.

That leaves 4 fabrics to be had.

If you want truly versatile you'll mostly be looking at various light blues and deciding what fabrics and collars you want them to have.

My original post that included pictures was merely taking what you'd already posted and pivoting to what I thought were better versions of those.
