    Yeah, eating cat food to pay your shirtmaker is nuts.

    Don't worry

    4 bespoke shirts can wait until next year

    Renal failure cat food and vet bills for my 2 Siamese cats (my babies..I was born with only one ovary, that doesn't function means I can't have children)

    Lobb boots will be paid for this year

    Gaziano and Girling bespoke boots either this year or next year, not decided which yet...[​IMG]

    Standard rotation:

    Rotation for work:

    Arrow White Shirt
    BB Non-Iron Blue Shirt
    UNIQLO Light Blue Slimfit Shirt
    Qantas-Morrison White Shirt

    Rotation for casual outs:

    UNIQLO Blue Checkered Shirt
    UNIQLO Blue OCBD
    BB EFC White Shirt

    I normally limit my shirts to white and blue of different shades, fabric and patterns. I love the utility of white and blue since it's not really something people (and myself) get tired of seeing. Hence I can limit my wardrobe to a few items.

    I don't wear shirts that much during the weekends though. As much as I like to dress up during the weekdays, I prefer really dressing down during the weekends with just some cheap t-shirts off Target, hoodies from UNIQLO or a few polo shirts from Izod.

    Not buying any more shirts this year with my collection of 15 shirts

    When my 4 Thomas pink shirts wear out, I'm hoping to replace them with better quality/fit shirts, maybe bespoke.

    My boyfriend might buy me a shirt for Christmas, but as he's offered to pay a bit towards my Lobb boots, it's pretty unlikely.

    Due to some recent purchases, the count stands @ 24. Don't wear suits much to work, but I have to wear a white coat, so my shirts get to be more busy, pattern wise.

    Most are dress shirts, but ~ 5 are button down collar/casual wear, 2 are French cuff formal shirts.

    when i dont wear a suit or SC, i always wear a BD collar. I have 5 or 6 in different materials and weights with one MTO individualized shirt incoming, but feel like I can never have too many.

    I've broken up with him, but 15 shirts are ample for rotation

    When I wear out the 4 Thomas Pink shirts I bought in July 2014, I might think about adding some more...[​IMG]

    About 60 collared shirts, of which about 20 are made by Proper Cloth. Some 10 or so are white, another 10 are blue. The rest are a mixture of various colors and patterns. I have 3 "tuxedo" shirts, all marcella fronts. I also have around 30 Tommy Bahama/Nat Nast style shirts for island wear.

    Some of my shirts are approaching 25 years old and nearing retirement age. Hence the recent influx of shirts from Proper Cloth.

    Not really. In an earlier part of this thread I mentioned that I rarely have paid regular price for any of them except some MTM. I know when to shop and when the price is right. When it's right I may buy 10-20 at a time. That's all. I have sold several shirts as I don't wear them enough, but I still have a nice collection. I have also given a way a ton also just to be a blessing.

    Everyone has their vices, mine happens to be shirts (one of them anyway). I have friends that have more shirts than I do. It's not madness or OCD (responding to previous post) it's just one of my things I like.
