I often think of my husband as a natural minimalist. Consequently having a minimal wardrobe for him is very easy.
My husband is a web developer who works in a business casual setting.
He doesn’t care for long sleeves so all his polos and casual shirts are short sleeved.
His core colors are blue, black, navy, grey, a little brown and khaki.
6 polos for work
(Plus he has one dress shirt with the company logo for client meetings.)
2 nice jeans for work
2 pair casual pants (switched with shorts in summer)
4 casual shirts
3 dress pants for Sunday (khaki, navy, and a wool blend for subzero days)
7 dress shirts (4 short sleeved for summer and 3 long sleeved)
Hunting gear in the basement
A dress shirt for our home business
2 pair pajamas
Undergarments and Socks
Nice boots which he wears every day in Winter.
Comfortable, heavy duty dress shoes which he wears every day the rest of the year.
German House Shoes (like slippers)
A suit for interviews and when he preaches at church.
That’s it. I didn’t have to pare down much either. He’s a natural.
Jeans and pants don’t need to be washed every use so there is enough clothes for him.
That’s his wardrobe. Working men’s wardrobes will vary of course by their occupation.
