What's your wardrobe like?

A few recent threads got me thinking about all my work clothes. I have quite a collection ranging from business casual to the usual suits and sportcoats. What I wear varies greatly depending on the time of year and what I have planned for the day. I usually go twice a year get some new stuff, but the more I add, the less often I wear each piece. Some of the better stuff from Hickey Freeman or fine men's stores really last. I'm just wondering if what I have is usual or if I'm officially wading in girly waters because I have too many clothes.

3 suits
9 sport coats
9 dress pants
6 casual pants
23 dress shirts
10 sport shirts
9 golf shirts with company logo
40 ties

I have more than a dozen suits, of which I wear about a half-dozen on a regular basis. I just like wearing suits, I guess.

I alternate - either scrubs or shirt and tie at work, then only have to break out the blazer/suit for fancy dinners/receptions/events.

I have only 2 suits right now, though I suspect I may add some in the future. I have a ton of dress shirts, and plenty of polo shirts and khakis. I guess buisness casual has generally been my work wear, although I can do fancier if need be.

I voted the jeans and sneakers option, but I do own a suit that is worn for special occasions (but I didn't buy it at Sears )

I did previously have a job where i had to wear slacks with a shirt and tie, so I still have a ton of shirts. But I never wear them.

Jeans at work everyday, very little is nicer than that. Although, I still have my "looking for a job suit" from a while back. Easily out of style and very likely doesn't fit anyway.

I have probably 5-7 suits, 2-3 sport coats, and a bunch of slacks. 30ish or so dress shirts, and then my regular clothes. I have a bunch of my closet that are 'going out' clothes...so not biz stuff, but collared shirts and things that are more appropraite at clubs. I actually prefer nicer clothes, though on my 'off' days (or when I don't have to see patients) in a shorts and sandals kind of guy. This it he only good thing about S. FL. Well....that and hot women.

I have stripped out pretty much all of my winters clothes (no need, outside of a few things when I head up north to visit family). I have 2 closets, but when I move i'm definately going to get more closet space.

Gosh, I despise suits and ties. My hatred is deep. I've been able to go business casual for years and now have to go back into a monkey suit, shirt tucked in and a neck strangler. Ties are even more pointless than a suit jacket and I wish they could be outlawed. I fel like a sell out but I need the pay bump.

I'm a button down long sleeve dress/casual shirt (tail out) with dress slacks - no khakis dude. Its hip and modern and thats how it should be.

Jeans and t-shirts for the day job and jeans/khakis and sports shirts for the part time job. 1 very poorly fitting suit.

Shirts and jeans, since that's what I wear to work. I've got a nice suit for special occasions, and a couple other dress shirts that I don't touch much.

I have a nice suit for special occasions and such (not from Sears), dress slacks, business casual clothes, about 60 t-shirts, some sports jerseys, about 10 ties, and about 65 pairs of shoes, most of which are Nike's and the like.

Suits are very hit and miss. 99% of suits 'off the rack' don't fit people. A great tailor is a worthy investment. They can make a $400 suit look like an $1000+ suit...because it fits right. Conversely, a bad tailor will make a $1200 suit look like a piece of crap.

The most iv'e spent on a suit was maybe $700ish (fully tailored). Once I get a real job again, i'm going to go for handmade suits (including shirts, etc). There are/were some amazing tailors in baltimore who have done this for 40-50+ years. I'm going to find a place like that and get a few new suits made, shirts, etc. Drop a 2-3k on some quality threads, and reap the rewards with getting that reach job, etc. It won't get it for you, but it will sure help your look.
