I posted a similar post and got tons of answers that dealt with "how to donate/sell/discard clothes" that's not what I seek. I know how to donate/sell/discard clothes. My question is ideas on simplifying wardrobe.
I am not wealthy and therefore have some clothes that are almost a decade old that I still wear. I rarely discard clothes becuase that may mean buying more later on. However...my wardrobe feels a bit discombobulated. I've inherited a bunch of suits from my father, which I dislike. I like cheap 3-piece "my kind" of suits. I guess the goal is to have 3 good 3-piece suits I like. a set number of collared tie-shirts (I have like 17 collared shirts, how do you whittle those down??) athletic/workout clothes, and maybe 2-3 pairs of casual clothes (2-3 pairs of jeans 2-3 collared short-sleeve shirts, etc).
I do the same thing with shoes. I don't want to spend money buying new shoes so old shoes even if I rarely wear them I keep. I'e had one pair of boots I've probably worn 3 times in the past 5 years that I keep because if I discover they might be useful for something, it'd be hell to buy them if I through them out. I think bare minimum i'd want/need would be 1 pair of dress boots, 1 pair of athletic shoes, and sandals.
