A forum member and I were discussing the edges of this question but I thought it might be worth a more direct look. What limits should one place on the size of one's wardrobe? The deals and sales keep coming, there are only so many days to wear what we have--how much is too much? This came home to me last night as I was trying to jam a couple of dress shirts in the closet after some late night ironing (bigger closet, maybe?). I'm not speaking of this from a moral standpoint (eg, you own too much--repent.). I'm talking about simply recognizing the limits of practicality. Now most (all?) of the people here are clothes hobbyists to one degree or another and some "excess" is to be expected. But, for an example, how many cufflinks do I really need (I've been on a cufflink spree of late) when I would wear them 4-5 times month on average (no comments, cuffthis. ). I don't necessarily aspire to have a vast collection of links, but I suspect my small number naturally will grow. Shoes are another obvious example around here. Ties, too. Anyway, just some thoughts.
