I try and abide by Archival Clothing’s resolutions, in particular “Come up with a signature uniform. Wear it once a week.” I put one together each season, which, I admit, may not be in the exact spirit of the Archival idea. Having a coherent, reliable set of clothes means one less decision I have to make on days I wear it, ensures I get good value out of the items in the outfit, and if I’m done my planning well, has me looking decent at least once a week. Reasonable people might find this level of planning precious or juvenile, like laying tomorrow’s outfit on the bed, but I find the “uniform” provides a center that anchors my wardrobe between laundry days.
