What I posted sounds like a lot, but when I think about it i'm wearing the same look 90% of the time, and i wear the same clothes year in year out rather than updating every season. I definitely have less variety in my dress than most of the posters on here or superfuture.
post #26 of 38
^Yeah that is something I would like to achieve someday in my wardrobe.

This is a little lame, but one thing my friend's father's secretary said to me the summer after I finished 8th grade while I was with my friend visiting his father in Tokyo really left a big impact on me.

She is Japanese and was explaining the way that she and, according to her, most other Japanese people, try to dress in the workplace and in personal life.


Clothes are a big part of self identity and the way other people recognize you. At the same though it is a little weird to wear literally the exact same thing everyday- people will notice and then you get into hygiene issues of people thinking you don't wash your clothes frequently enough.
In order to get around this the father's secretary was saying she mainly buys clothes from one designer and tries to get a lot of stuff from the same season with the goal of appearing the same everyday yet having different black shirts of the same material but with tiny details changed... some minor collar detail changed, slightly different button arrangement or something. Skirts of the same patterned textile but two or three different cuts.

That way she has a solid look which she associates with herself and others associate with her but those who are looking closely will notice that she is switching it up and not wearing her clothes literally everyday- causing them to wear out quickly, get dirty, etcetera.



Young and impressionable as they say.
I still haven't figured out any good brands yet, so I am trying to make do until I can find some great designer to wear for years.



I remember seeing a thread or two once about cutting down one's wardrobe to the bare minimum... something like

1 formal suit
1 skinny fashion suit
1 slim straight indigo pair of jeans
1 black jeans
3 button up shirts
4 t shirts
...


that sort of stuff. 1 or 2 of each basic to create a diverse wardrobe which could stay somewhat stylish for years if worn right.

For me though I think I would prefer to have something more like the 5 pairs of dior jeans you mentioned. A couple cuts (I am guessing 19cm and 21cm) with sized up and down waists to give the same look but to let you tweak it each day.

I have a hard time believing this. You strike me as someone who would be one of the more eclectic dressers on this forum based on your posts. But if it is true, I am pleasantly surprised. Nothing beats a capsule wardrobe.

I have one pair of really slim 19 cm broken dust wash, the rest is straight leg to regular slim. Probably not a desirable jeans fit by SF/Sufu standards...i just used to be really into Dior and would buy washed jeans every season. Not really something to aspire to. Come to think of it, the best Dior casual pants I bought are not jeans, but my very first Dior item which was the VOTC charcoal painted cords... For raw jeans I much prefer my APCs.
