1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I won't count, but I will give you an idea. If I just counted my trousers that I only wear on the golf course I have 52 pairs. Not an exaggeration. I also own at least 10 pairs of golf shoes mostly wingtips(like cuban habanos). And that's just golf...but hey I am a nut and like to look good on and off the course.

    I am impressed with the minimalist approach though, I am afraid I can't walk down that path.
    I wear a suit every day to work so I own 11 suits (not including my tuxedo) after I gave my brother 4 suits that I don't wear anymore. I am certainly not done with adding suits and suspect I will end up with around 15-18 when I am done. I also have 20+ dress shirts but must admit that I wear 5-6 of them 80% of the time. For dress shoes for work I have 5 pairs, two black, two brown and one that is a two toned brown and cream wing tip that I wear with my khaki suit.

    When I am not working 99% of the time you can catch me in a pair of khaki shorts with a long sleeve button down shirt untucked with the sleeves rolled up. I live in Florida so that is kind of my day to day look when I am not at the office.

    I don't really see myself buying anything but dress clothes in the near future.

    I uh, plead the 5th. Not as many items as some on this forum, but, uh... :embar:

    Hey, I like variety. What can I say?

    I used to be a hoarder because I thought having a lot of clothes was cool. What I didn't realize is that I was buying pieces for their brand name without knowing if they fit me correctly. As I have got older, I have started to add classic pieces that will be versatile with the fit being the most important thing. I am now more picky with my selections and have switched to MTM for my dress and casual shirts. It's a work in process, but I think I have it down better than many people my age (Senior in college).

    Now up to 43 pieces, and promised a shopping trip next week when my boyfriend gets paid!!!

    Hoping for a new parka, as my old one was bought in 1998, it's the oldest piece of clothing I own, and I'd like to update it...my next oldest piece is from 2008, so hopefully I'll be able to update my wardrobe..

    Currently

    8 assorted coats and jackets

    5 navy jumpers

    15 shirts

    15 pairs of jeans:D

    I think I have 35 dress shirts. Your mentality is acceptable but my mentality is and i am pretty sure groupthink of SF is to purchase things that are staples so you have a healthy rotation of items whether its shirts, shoes, trousers, etc. Visit this site Vipcubancigars
