I'm with you. In fact I recently joined the no new purchases of any kind whatsoever club. Soon after this I joined the give away one item every month club.

This has been on my mind as well, as I recently had something of a style crisis. It has been resolved without undue expenditure or butt-hurt.

If I had to purchase a casual wardrobe from scratch tomorrow, I'd stay very minimal and inexpensive. These are all items available within walking distance of my apartment.

- 5 Gap v-neck t-shirts, black.
- 1 pair Converse high-tops, black.
- 1 pair Levi's 501 STF, raw.
- 5 pairs Wigwam socks, black.
- 1 Dickies leather belt, black.
- 1 pair Dickies work pants, black.
- 1 Jerzees zip-front hoodie, black.
- 1 pair Doc Marten boots, black.
- 5 wifebeaters.
- 5 drawers.

This would get me through 3 seasons of the year. If I had to pick up winter wear as well, I'd get a black Dickies sherpa-lined work jacket, 5 black thermals, and a pair of black gloves.

About the only other stuff I'd pick up would be occasional t-shirts at local shows.

I realize this is a boring, monotonous, stereotypical anti-fashion wardrobe, but it's kind of where I'm at right now. Obviously, since I'm not starting from scratch, I have more clothes than this, but not that many, and getting fewer as I jettison non-essential pieces.

A nice clean black t-shirt, classic dark jeans or Dickies, and boots or Chucks is appropriate for everything I do in my off time, and it's what I dig out 75% of the time anyway.

A year from now, who knows?

"I done fell in love with a stripper y'all/all i do is flirt with her then i get them drawers..."

Thanks ... it may just be some weird-ass experiment, but I'm pretty comfortable with it right now, as I really am moving in that direction. I spend less money, I do less laundry, and I don't pay attention to seasonal trends. Everything is something I would have been comfortable in and could have afforded 20 years ago, 10 years ago, and 5 years ago.

The only drawback is that I feel like the Minimalists on "Absolutely Fabulous."

nah it's not a weird experiment at all. i'm pretty much heading in the same direction.

im doing this right now actually. been seeing more graphic tshirts than usual everywhere, i started just wearing white and black tees and the same pair of jeans (im one of those people) day in day out. though, im been wearing this one perfect fit, blue tee for a couple of days now.

minimalism feels great.

good thread! hard to pin point exactly, but at the moment, my perfect basic wardrobe would be something like: boots: red wing 875 red wing 866 bean boots shoes/sneaks: timberland classic boat shoe new balance 574 (gray) white high chucks some kind of plain toe shoe, Alden perhaps basic penny loafers in brown or burgundy (bass? Or say Qouddy for a more casual vibe) Birkenstock Boston and Zurich in brown leather. pants: lvc 501 33 lvc 501 55 carhartt b11 duck pants (carhartt brown) jackets: carhartt duck chore jacket a couple of vintage denim chore jackets Filson mackinaw jacket in grey or loden vests: patagonia fleece carhartt duck filson mackinaw (grey/black plaid) button down shirts (hard to say exactly, since its what I wear everyday, ut..): a bunch Brooks brothers classic oxford BD in blue and university stripes (burgundy and blue) a couple of vintage chambray work shirts, or say EG Levis denim western shirt Field and stream buffalo plaid flannel shirts (black/red and blue/black) Sweaters: Grey cotton hoodie blue cotton hoodie grey thick wool cardigan dark blue wool cardigan wool watch caps (dark navy and green) and some chunky wool scarfs. I could probably be a lot more luxorious, but this is pretty much what I wear now, and what my wardrobe could (should?) be reduced to. Very easy to wear and easy to match. What I really would do is get everything in the RIGHT size, and not buy a lot of practically the same thing just because I like it (which i guess is somekind of collectors mentality)

I like a minimalistic wardrobe, but being in college it can give the connotation of "wow, he's wearing the same thing again. I wonder if he does laundry?"

Is this because you guys regret your current collection?

For the most part, I don't think so ... I still have stuff besides what I listed, just much less than I used to. There are definitely things I've bought that I wouldn't buy again, and that's what's been getting edited out over the last couple years. When I first got into clothes, I went on the typical orgy of spending and ended up with a lot of superfluous stuff, and since then have been gradually contracting to what I realistically get a lot of use out of.
