    Half of us live inside Yoox. It's like being an insect-- you find a really nice light fixture and just sort of settle there

    I like the idea of Yoox, but per usual, no shit (or very limited shit) or big dudes. No matter, I'm starting to piece together my post for the contentedness thread.

    Probably lots of obscure Italian made brands we have yet to collectively discover

    Occasionally I also have luck with brands that are already forum favorites

    Kolor piece is a size 5 ;)

    What was it? Too big... for me?

    I usually just sort yoox by latest arrivals and just scroll through looking for good shit. If a couple of pieces from, say, Engineered Garments are there, usually there's a handful more new EG pieces so I check EG overall.

    It's relaxing, like stirring risotto can be relaxing, or gardening.

    it might fit you. from some random british high street brand. it's a black nylon ma1 with padding and a contrasting dark grey wool back. nice beefy zips.

    it's also a little longish on me, so dunno how it'd work for you.

    got a nice aspesi harrington that will work well this summer though.

    totally RFT: I feel (once again) like I need to get rid of half my stuff. I don't have 3 closets worth or anything, but I feel like I have too much. But I also have a bunch of things that I rarely wear but can't get rid of. Like I own a tux, a cream linen suit, and you're all familiar with the plaid pants from Epaulet.

    I also have like 10 pairs of shoes and there's a reason for each of them. Looking at them I can't think of any I could get rid of. But in the abstract I'm thinking "why don't I just have 1 pair of boots, 2 pairs of dress shoes, and one pair of sneakers." That kind of stuff.

    Do I need more than 10 dress shirts? More than 5?

    I have like 30 ties. I could probably do with only 5.

    I hate to use the word "versatile" but I feel like I ought to be able to make do with far less if I were really careful about the choices of what to buy.

    And so I feel like I need to get rid of half my stuff, but I also feel like I need to buy a bunch of new things in order to have the few perfect pieces I need. .

    tl;dr: clothes [​IMG]

    ^I probably enjoy buying clothes and shoes equally as much as I enjoy wearing them

    new store downtown called Volt, opened just today (super nice space and decor, probably the nicest clothing store in Uppsala right now)
    Price was around 320$ I think

    For somebody that gets dressed in biz cas or wears a suit to work each day (I assume you are in the former) you legitimately need 10 dress shirts (I prefer 15). This way you can go to the cleaners once on the weekend and always have enough shirts to get you through the week.

    For shoes, I would say you need two pairs for work. Putting your shoes in trees and giving them a full 36 hours to "air-out" before their next wearing will prolong their life meaningfully. Plus, you're going to want one pair in black and one in brown anyways.

    Ties - Yeah, you probably don't need more than 10-15.

    As for the one off weird things (tux, plaid pants), so long as your closet isn't jammed with these sort of things, just keep them. While their use is limited, having them around when you need them is part of what constitutes real style. I have a velvet blazer that I pretty much only wear during Christmas, but it kicks ass every Christmas and that's what I like about it.
