In our last post about Building a Basic Wardrobe, we recommended that you have a minimum of 12 shirts in your collection. Why? It is based on a simple equation…
The magic number of twelve allows a man to wear a fresh shirt each day of the work week, as well as on Saturday when necessary. Sunday, he takes these six shirts to be dry cleaned, and while they are at the cleaner’s, he wears his remaining six shirts. The process continues to repeat so he is never left without a clean shirt.
If he doesn’t wear a dress shirt on Saturdays, these sixth shirts provide another option or an alternative in the case of a ruined or worn out shirt. By following this advice, a man will be able to wear a fresh shirt every day for two weeks.
We have previously explained this theory, but we felt our visual calendar was due for some updates. Clifton Charles shirts are tailored exactly to your measurements, and can be customized to fit your personality and lifestyle.
