I generally rise around 4:30am to be at work by 9am. Over coffee and breakfast I check the weather forecast and review my fit spreadsheet for approximately the previous two weeks to try to get a rough idea of what is eligible that day. I cross-reference the fit spreadsheet with my inventory database (as it does me no good to select something that is at the cleaners, say). I try to narrow it down to only 4-5 options. After performing all necessary ablutions, around 5:30 I do a couple of trial runs of the options I identified earlier. Ideally, something works and I can move forward. If nothing seems to be working, I go back to my inventory database and try to work up some more options. At this point, the pressure is beginning to rise, as starting over can lead to a severe time crunch.
Generally speaking I can get a workable fit by around 7am. I then have about 45-60 minutes to dress, get the right knot in my tie, get the pocket square arranged to my satisfaction, and so on. Then I allot about 30 minutes for picture taking and curation. I usually shoot around 100 frames which I edit down to the best 3-4 for posting here and on Instagram. So, I'm ready to leave for work by 8:30am for the 25 minutes drive through the teeth of Silicon Valley traffic.
I had assumed that my process was pretty similar to many here.
Like I said, try barcodes.
