Quote: I also have these sentiments. On top of fit, I've slowly realized over years of experimentation and buying that certain aesthetics and brands just don't really work for me. I've fallen into the trap of buying something that looks cool in a lookbook or on the model way too many times. Nowadays, my senses have matured to the point where I can actually pass on pieces that look really cool but don't fit into my aesthetic. There are always pieces that are intrinsically valuable or aesthetically pleasing, but just don't work for me. Pretty jealous of people who can pull off a variety of looks but in the end style is a conversation between your internal and external self and a certain balance must be maintained. Quote: And to echo SVB again I really do believe that the "best of something" is the best way to go about organizing your wardrobe and becoming more content. I don't believe there is a good enough reason to own a second-rate item in any clothing category, for example, work boots or minimalist sneakers or heavy knits. If you really love a piece then you will always reach for it and there is no reason to own a "beater." For myself I actually own multiples of a lot of stuff that I really love to add a little bit of variety in colours and whatnot. I have two Ijevans and the UNIQLO Lemaire mockneck in every colourway for example. But I do think that trimming down and being able to pass on our consumer tendencies is the way to go for the environment and just for personal happiness/satisfaction. I really like it when every piece in my wardrobe is carefully chosen and well loved and I don't put something on and have doubts about it. Obviously there can never really be a "finished" wardrobe (or a "finished" anything in fact) but I do like to strive for it.
