I'm really curious about what other people consider their "minimum" acceptable casual wardrobe (not counting underwear, socks, and workout clothes). I know some of y'all are clothes-horses with full walk-in closets, and others, like me, get by on a scavenger philosophy with a few nice pieces. I'm continually fascinated by what some people consider essential and others consider completely superfluous. I try to maintain as small a wardrobe as practically possible - I like to look nice, but I like to do so on the cheap. I just don't like accumulating a lot of stuff. You'll note from the list below that I tend to wear jeans, short-sleeved shirts, and sneakers, and I have a lot of neutrals. I "dress up" all week for work and I don't run in social circles where I have to dress up in my off time. My idea of a fun Friday night is drinking Stewart's soda and reading comic books at the tattoo shop. Anyway, my relatively minimalist wardrobe philosophy has served me well, but there are a few things I should probably add for the upcoming fall and winter - a hoodie, a sweater, and a jacket are on my "buy" list for sure. What would you add? How would your "minimal" list differ? Pants: *Nudie RRDS - I got these as 30x34s and double-cuff them. They're pretty baggy now. I wear them every weekday after work, and all weekend, unless they've become stinky, in which case I air them out and wear one of my other two pairs of casual pants. This is my first pair of "project" jeans so I'm trying for the "six months without washing" target. Will see how that goes. They get skated in a lot, and I'm pretty sure one or both knees will be busted (and patched) shortly. *Thrift store cords, tan, baggy. *Wal-Mart cargo pants, khaki, baggy - I don't really wear these for anything but skating. They're fairly crap even for that purpose, and may be purged shortly. Shirts, Long-sleeved: *Thrift store Dickies flannel, red plaid. This is a very nice shirt for the amount I paid. Square hem, lined cuffs and collar, fits perfectly. *2 Urban Outfitters Winterlite crewneck "thermals" - one kind of a light chocolate, one white. These are very thin, very soft, very comfortable, and not very "thermal." They were on sale for like $7 each for a while, and seem worth about that. *Black Hanes Beefy with white contrast stitching. One of my favorites. Shirts, Short-sleeved: *Thrift store Arnold Palmer short-sleeved button-down, blue check. *Levi's Western-style short-sleeved button-down, burgundy check, "pearl" snaps. *2 Sears "Canyon River Blues" short-sleeved button-downs, one blue check, one red and orange check. Got these on sale for $4 each. They're boys' large shirts, which is indistinguishable to me from mens' small shirts. Maybe a little tighter across the shoulders. *2 Threadless t-shirts - black "Classic Grills" and purple "Zombie Donkey." There's no way I'm walking through life without at least one shirt with a zombie on it. *Gap t-shirt, olive. This is my favorite t-shirt, ridiculously soft and comfortable, nice slim fit. I have no idea what kind it is, other than it's from the Gap. Got it for $2 at something called a "Magic Mart" in southern West Virginia. *American Apparel blended ringer, pinkish with burgundy ring collar. Also very comfortable. *Black Hanes v-neck. *Heather gray Jerzees blended crewneck. *Brown HYP crewneck with orange ring collar and "track" stripes on sleeves. Got on clearance. Jury's out on this one. I don't think it's going to age well. Jackets and Coats: *Some kind of black track jacket with heather gray stripes on sleeves. Very cheap, very comfortable. *Brown Carhartt chore coat. It's a medium, but I've cut some weight lately because of increased activity and stress levels, and it's a bit big, so I'll be in the market for a new one. Shoes: *Black high-top Chuck Taylors. *Greasy brown 6-eye Doc Martens, made in England, don't know the model. Got these at Gabriel Brothers years and years ago, and wear them when weather is too inclement for Chucks. Accessories: *Timex watch, plain round face with plain brown band. Fairly slim. I wear this to work, too. *Fossil watch, big chunky round face and big chunky black band. *Black Dickies belt. I don't really wear belts much, not sure why I keep this around. *Olive army belt. *Spyderco Endura. *Case two-blade. *Pewter pendant - small crucifix made of a mallet and stake tied together. I know. *Pewter belt buckle - round spider-web design. I know.
