    I have several shirts in several shades. Mostly whites and blues I also have a few pinks greens and other pastel colors. I count about 25 but there are some I don't wear as much as others.

    I have way more than I need. And I thought it was getting expensive when I moved up to the Isaia, Borelli, Finamores. Now I have discovered the good MTM! I just donated some 30 shirtsl. All good shape just not things I have not reached for in some time or ones that I now see fit more like a tent than what a dress shirt should fit like. Not sure my wallet should thank Style Forum but some people will be getting free, pretty decent quality shirts for free because of this forum.

    My shoe collection is actually pretty sane by SF standards.. I have about 50 pairs of dress shoes, and probably something like 25 pairs of casual shoes (excluding running shoes).. I probably cycle 4 or 5 shirts per quarter (i.e. donate and replace with new), so I have held pretty close to 75 or so.. A bunch were at the laundry when I snapped those pics, I may try to get better pics tonight..

    50 pairs is sane?? My god I have some catching up to do...... and then all I'll need is a new house to put them all in [​IMG]

    I have about 60 dress shirts. Most are tailored, with french cuffs. I try to wear them in a rotation, but I end up wearing some more than others. My tailor is the "Elegant Rochees" in Alexandria Virginia. They visit Milwaukee(my home town) about 5-6 times per year. I like their quality and fit.

    Only two: Oxxford cloth BC in white, and one in blue. Both from Target for a grand total of $30. [​IMG] They fit surprisingly slim, though.
