One of Archival Clothing's resolutions (nifty, long-running blog and decent webshop, if you're not familiar) is "Come up with a signature uniform. Wear it once a week."



I'm sure a lot of people don't subscribe to all of AC's resolutions, but I bet several will resonate with SF members of any taste (unless you like crap). I think the uniform one is great.

Anyone have a uniform? Has it changed over the last couple of years?

I don't like the idea of a uniform. I'm sure I've wear the same set of clothing on more than one occasion, but doing it on a weekly basis seems kind of sad. I much prefer to look at my options and decide on what I feel like wearing that day.

Admittedly, I do cycle through my suits and shoes on a pretty regular basis to at least assure I don't wear the same suit or pair of shoes more than once a week, but that's as far as I'm willing to go.

EDIT - The rest of their resolutions are quite good.

Noobs would benefit from reading that list, especially 1-4.

I try to mix things up as much as i can, but I usually revert to my TOJ grey leather, viscose tee, black jeans, and BBall Hi's.

My usual is a black WvG tee, APC PS/NS, and some Margiela sneaks. I usually throw a ToJ leather or WV on top.

That's what I wear when I don't have enough time to think about what to wear before class.
