Mr Minimalist

I minimised my wardrobe by vowing to dress smartly every day. I now own a suit, a few shirts, some t-shirts, underwear and some casual pants. I have three pairs of shoes: formal, casual and snow. Half a suitcase. Why any human male would need anything else is beyond me.

I wrote a little piece about my relationship with minimalism for Miss Minimalist’s blog. Enjoy!

    Great piece Rob. I feel need to purge my own wardrobe now!
