Such a number, if produced, would be grossly inaccurate in almost all cases except for the person who produced said figure. Many factors come into play here - what do you do for a living, how old are you, what is your preferred style?How many suits, sport jackets, shirts, ties, trousers, shoes etc. Give me your opinions about the colours and patterns aswell. What about accesoires such as belts, cufflinks, tie bars. Is that neccesary?
Yeah, seriously.your asking people to write a novel ! 580+ posts and you dont know the answer to this ?? come on man !
>.< GAH! Embarrassing. My secret is out.Step five add clothing until you run out of storage space (optional but typical of AAAC members!)
I will be sure to pass your sentiments on to Mrs Flatline.Flatline TWO jackets !?!?! Just TWO ???
...dude come on... get shopping. Sell a kidney or whatever.
"Accessories such as belts . . . . Is that [Are they?] necessary"? Of course belts are "necessary" unless all the trousers are fitted with braces buttons, and then braces would be "necessary." Otherwise, what are all those belt loops for? Well, I suppose one could make do with side tab adjusters.How many suits, sport jackets, shirts, ties, trousers, shoes etc. Give me your opinions about the colours and patterns aswell.

I know this is a bit off track but I have to ask: do you wear a tie everyday? Without a jacket (you said you don't have to wear a suit everyday and you only have 2 odd jackets)?I didn't mean to sound so acerbic before. As penance I did a mental tally. My personal closet consists of:
As for accessories,
- 3 suits (1 navy pinstripe, 1 charcoal, 1 brown)
- 2 jackets (1 blue, 1 brown corduroy)
most days I don't have to wear a suit to the office (in fact it's unofficially discouraged, but I do it regardless).
- 30-40 ties (do have to wear them daily)
We are really derailing this poor thread, but that's OK. Yes, I do occasionally wear a tie with no jacket. It's not a look I particularly like either, but I am guilty. I also tend to wear cardigans or v-neck sweaters over my shirt+tie combo as an alternative to a suit or blazer.I know this is a bit off track but I have to ask: do you wear a tie everyday?

I say this because it brings up two points: 1) Almost all the memers here would say "Don't wear tie without a jacket." 2) If you say "damn the office" and wear a suit or jacket everyday even though you are discouraged I think you should consider getting more suits and/or jackets. You could easily burn through these relatively quickly if you keep rotating them this heavily.
Just a thought...
Ok then, you're coming along nicely !I will be sure to pass your sentiments on to Mrs Flatline.
You must excuse me, I grew up with a single mom and didn't learn nearly anything about men's clothing until senior year of high school. I may be 25, but I am only wearing jackets/blazers at a third-grade level. If it helps, I just got my Bookster fabric swatches in the mail today. I am leaning towards a 2btn in the Autumn Leaf herringbone.
Why would you need two tuxedos? Do you go to yhe opera often? Are you a member of some social group that holds alot of formal dinners?Yeah, and some wardrobes are just fatuous. Most of these guys have nicely proper wardrobes. Mine is 8 tweed suits, 4 regular wool suits, 2 tuxedos, 4 seer sucker suits, 2 poplin suits, and 3 odd jackets, tons of odd pants and vests, and about 20 shirts I like to wear (another 20 that are more colorful and patterned which I rarely wear). 26 pairs of shoes. 100+ ties. 10 ascots/cravats. 6+ bow ties. Oh good god.... it's really over kill. Anyone could easily do with 1/4 of what I have.
Tails and regular. Weddings, award shows, but no opera. Oh, and swank dinners.Why would you need two tuxedos? Do you go to yhe opera often? Are you a member of some social group that holds alot of formal dinners?
Just asking, because I had not run across two many people that have two tuxedos.
