    I saw there's a few of these programs on the app store and was wondering if any of you guys have done this before... ???
    (Basically you get an app, take pics of your wardrobe, and you can track stuff like outfits, # wearings, digitally mix and match, etc. )

    How long did it take you to get everything photographed?

    Which App did you use and what features did you find the most or least useful?

    edit - it's not about cataloging... I'm thinking it would be useful so I remember what I have when shopping, can save pictures of favorite combos, post up stuff here on WAYW, etc...

    The only thing I know that comes close to this is what some sneaker heads to organize their collections. My friend Jeff, for example, photographs each shoe and sticks the photo onto the shoe box

    I can't imagine why anyone on this side of the board would need to do something like this though.

    Seems overkill. I know what I have and will judge each day as it comes. No need to digital involvement in the process, can't see what it adds and you offer no case for it either.

    I'd do it if I had the time. Not to use for an app or anything. Just because I like cataloging stuff.

    Me too. I have an excel spreadsheet that just lists what I have, when I bought it and what it cost. Just to satisfy my occasional curiosity about how long I've had certain things, how long they last, and if I ever get round to selling anything, what kind of profit / loss I would make.

    I'm guilty if this too. But it only has measurements. I use it to determine if things if fleabay and the B&S and other web stores will fit

    Lol about tracking liquidity

    Yea, I used to have one of his first t-shirts, sent to me when he started the company. It was a silkscreened graphic of a patent diagram, of a new "invention" for holding Black slaves at the neck. I still have some of his t-shirts, but they're from the late-90s.

    To the OP, I assume Jeff had one of his employees take photographs of those shoes and put them on boxes too. And I can't imagine many people owning as many shoes as him (most of the stuff he gets for free). Again, don't understand why anyone on this side of the board would want to catalog their clothes. We're not collectors.

    My intention isn't to catalog for "collection" purposes. It's more about when I'm shopping so I know what I already have and if I use it a lot or it's time to replace, or to remember great combos, or maybe to share with people like on SF WAYW or facebook, etc.

    Not to seem facetious, but why can't you just do that with your brain?

    I do this too, for big items like suits & jackets (I don't list ties, squares, socks, etc) though I only list the original price to know what to tell the insurer if anything ever happened like a fire. Mind you, home contents insurers don't generally do "new for old" for clothes but rather apply a depreciation... still, knowing exactly what I own and how much it originally cost should help if I ever needed to make a big claim, god forbid.

    I don't really see the attraction of digitising in the sense the OP describes.

    How about cataloging @unbelragazzo's first dates? Something where he can see how much he paid, how long they lasted, etc. The number here seems like it could be larger than what most men own in coats and shoes.

    Sounds like having a feature where little smiley emoticons automatically appear next to each entry is important to you then?

    Except for the massive weepy frowny face that would overshadow the whole project...

    I can't speak for everyone, but FWIW, most of my "wardrobe" is digital.
