This is pretty much it, can't afford everything I'd like so a lot of what I wear is just what I can find at a decent price especially the plain stuff and then I save for the things I know I'm going to wear a ton like the Norse Elka.

 

Damn student life.

Two years ago, I went through a wardrobe overhaul and built up from scratch. And now, I'm pretty happy with where I am and what I have right now. I believe I have relatively, very little. The idea was to have precious things but not be too precious with them. So this is everything:

 

Basics / Knitwear:

2 black tank tops

3/4 sleeve tee

black turtleneck

polypropylene sweater

2 black dress shirts

(all raf simons)

white ann d. shirt

number (n)ine cardigan

and one or two thrashed black/band tees in the mix

 

Trousers:

3 black dress pants (helmut lang)

2 casual trousers (helmut lang, w/ bondage detail + dries)

yang li boxer shorts (for grocery trips)

dior jeans

 

Outerwear / Suiting:

raf simons d-ring military jacket

raf simons suit jacket

helmut lang denim jacket

 

Footwear:

vans old skools

jil sander derbies

helmut lang combat boots

I've been changing as I grow older. Now I pretty much have a uniform and accumulate mostly the same things from the same brand. I almost dont even make decisions on what to wear anymore. also I've noticed that my closet basically mainly consists of White/Navy/black/gray all of them plain, some pieces that have patterns.

 

Shirts: White/Black/Gray/Navy scoop neck tees, Basic RL plain button downs

Denim: I only wear APC Petit Standards

Shoes: Running Shoes (NB/nike), AF1s

 

That's me almost on a daily basis

Two years ago, I went through a wardrobe overhaul and built up from scratch. And now, I'm pretty happy with where I am and what I have right now. I believe I have relatively, very little. The idea was to have precious things but not be too precious with them. So this is everything:

I have a similar mantra and a similarly sized wardrobe. Began to refine one aesthetic instead of trying to mix n match individual pieces that I liked or saw others wear well. Now 1.5 years later, I feel like I've finally managed to lay a solid foundation.

Basics:

Black tank (Geller)

Black sleeveless (Odyn Vovk)

Black tees x2 (Viridi-anne, IS)

Black / rose / white crewneck tees (Silent DD)

Black vneck tee (Julius)

Black longsleeve tees x2 (Rick, Viridi-anne)

Black vneck sweater (Julius)

Shirts:

White linen / cotton (Viridi-anne)

Black linen (Obscur)

Bottoms:

Black twist jeans (Attachment)

Black j curve pants (Attachment)

Outerwear:

Black canvas shirt jacket (Odyn Vovk)

Black hoodie (Drkshdw)

Black down jacket (Attachment)

Footwear:

Black boots x2 (Rick, Julius)

Accessories:

Scarf (Viridi-anne)

Still some gaps to fill in before I can start considering some more standout pieces, but all considered I'm very satisfied with the progress.

i just realized all of my staples are black, and that's funny considering how annoyed i am by people who worship the idea of wearing entirely black or colorless ensembles

can you imagine having 6 "staple" pairs of shoes

 

Each pair of plain leather "tennis shoe" is equally a staple, ok?

HA Fraiser, no need to hate. 1 loafer, 1 sandal, 1 slip-on, 1 tennis shoe & 1 runner, whether you like it or not are my staples. To be fair the APCs aren't a staple in my wardrobe.
