Ever since I started exploring the bespoke world, I realized how inadequate my assessment of fit was without a three-way mirror.

So I got myself one, the one below, which closes to a very slim profile.

The lightings above have GE Reveal bulbs in them for a more accurate color assessment. During the day, there is a large sliding door to the right that floods the space with natural lighting.



Since then, not only can I examine a look from the front, but also the sides, and especially, the back.

It has been very eye opening, to say the least.

It's been so long I can't remember which website I ordered it from, some modern furniture place online.

But here is an example.

Lowes, Home Depot.

There are track lights that have adapters you can plug into an outlet, so no need for in-wall rewiring. Just make sure you get color corrected (e.g. GE Reveal bulbs) so you can assess the colors without a yellowish slant, or God forbid, the pinkish-green slant that fluorescent lights cast.

I have mine on a dimmer as well, I hate glare bombs.

In fact, it's used for more than just 3-way sartorial examinations . . .
