It’s summer time again! Every season hundreds of people ask us what to throw away for their summer wardrobe cleaning. Summer evaluation is a great way to determine what in your closet is just wasting space due to the fact that you no longer wear the clothing hanging there. You may have several reasons for not wearing them but why look at them everyday? Here are some ideas that will help you determine what to give away and what to replace.
1) Throw Away Any Two Pleated Trousers. Any trousers at all with two pleats are non-existent to the modern day menswear culture. Two pleated trousers are dated and do not look appealing on most men especially if you have athletic legs. Take your losses and get yourself some trousers that fit trimmer around the seat and legs preferably in flat fronts.
2) Still Wearing That Three Button Jacket Mom Bought You?
Three buttons are now coming back in style but they are not traditional. Most Italian designers are placing the second button at the same placement as a regular two button with the first button “rolled” into the lapel. Your wide lapeled traditional three button needs to be retired. There are plenty of people who need a coat for warmth or who are just starting to work as you once did. Do yourself a favor and give it a new home.
3) Are Your Dress Shirts Frayed At The Collar?
It’s inevitable that this will happen one day. Don’t try to replace just the collars while searching madly trying to finding the same fabric. If your a real penny pincher, you could just replace the collar and cuffs and make the shirt a contrasting color with white cuffs and collar. Then again, you could just get some new shirts without the pit stains.
4) Did You Find Holes, Lose Threads, and Deeply Ingrained Stains?
Are those 10 year old Levi’s fraying at the bottom with holes at the knees. Is there a tiny hole at the armpit of your favorite Sunday cookout excursion. Do yourself a favor and clean up your act. The women will appreciate it.
Summer closet cleaning should be your ritual every year. There are so many other uses for your old clothes. I hope this summer has been great for you thus far. Make it better by lessening the load of the things you don’t need.
