Capsule wardrobe guide for men part 3

Why a Capsule wardrobe might make sense for you, number 4:

Each time you pull out your suitcase to pack for a trip, you are forced to consider the weather and the particular needs of your trip to put a “capsule” wardrobe together for the duration of your trip. A skilled packer will minimize the number of items he brings while maximizing the number of possible combinations.

Why a Capsule wardrobe might make sense for you, number 5:

You may think you love clothes too much to bother with a capsule wardrobe, but even a dedicated clotheshorse can benefit from it.

Benefits of a capsule wardrobe, number 1:

You choose to buy an item in advance of looking for it, rather than stumbling across it. Each wardrobe piece has a purpose within your wardrobe. You take clothing purchases more seriously and you may not spend less money on a capsule wardrobe, but you are likelier to be happy with your choices. You bring down the cost per wear of key pieces, helping you get the most out of your investments. You stop settling for clothing items that are just “ok”.

Benefits of a capsule wardrobe, number 2:

You learn how to better use less expensive accessories to create different looks and you need significantly less closet space.

Size of a Capsule wardrobe:

Capsule wardrobes do not have a universal set of rules but since the point is to minimize the number of pieces, it is better to choose a number and stick with it. In this case, I went with 37 individual pieces for day-to-day wear. These pieces should cover 99% of your wardrobe needs if possible, but if you happen to have a black tie event, do not fret about going outside the allotted 37 pieces by wearing your tuxedo. Here are a couple suggested capsule wardrobes for both warm and cool seasons.
