When I first started building my wardrobe, I was determined that it be complete - that I had one each of all the basics. Sort of a Bernhard Roetzl (Gentleman book) approach. In the last couple if years I've taken a different approach, selling a lot of things that were basics in a classic wardrobe, but which I never wore. Instead I find that I tend to buy many variations of a single item that I like to wear. Examples for me are navy blazers/sportcoats, grey flannel trousers, grey flannel suits, green ties, dark brown cap-toe shoes, or on the casual side, good fitting jeans and black t-shirts. (I'm not quite as conservative as that sounds.) What are the items that you tend buy multiples of??
