nah its all random - I like to look through for something to wear on a day rather than pre-plan outfits

In the early morning, with a blurry mind, I prefer to minimise using my foggy brain to hunt for a particular tie I *know* I have somewhere. I pretty much use one of four suits and have about 10 or so shirts mostly in blue or white - with 50 or so ties, the last thing I want to do is to spend time searching and not finding what I'm after.

 

Call it risk mitigation.

I have a coat hangar that I inherited from my last flatmate, but since I don't hang coat on it, I use the hooks to hang up my ties.

 

I do organise them based on a loose theme:

 

Hook 1: Dark knits

Hook 2: Blue/Black woven solids

Hook 3: Navy-based wovens with small patterns (like pindots/dots etc)

Hook 4: Earth tone (knits + woven)

Hook 5: Blue/black based patterns (stripes, Black Watch, etc)

 

I might have some form of OCD.

You need your shirts, suits and ties on a motorised rack, where you press a button on a touch panel and it brings out each item you've selected. You could have presets outfits as well. 

 

Personally, Alfred does that for me so I need not bother.

A couple of pics of my Whipping + Post messenger bag. Its for casual weekend use, trips to NLA,AWM or NGA reading rooms or day trips to Sydney. Its sufficient to tote what I need, the computer section is for a 13 book and is lined in suede. I found that my ipad with keyboard allows room for reading glasses. The strap on the back of the bag doubles as a handle and the paper section is will easily hold a shrunken SMH or AFR. The leather is vegetable dyed and the fittings are all brass, the shoulder strap being broad and padded is quite comfortable.

Given the amount of clobber he sells we could probably hold a TBM theme party.
