Blog: Wardrobe groundhog day
Joe Ayling | 29 July 2010
A latest clothing craze is circulating cyberspace whereby people are limited to wearing just six items from their wardrobe for a whole month.
The trend, called Six Items Or Less, was taken up by hundreds of bloggers last month, who shared their minimalist experiences of appearing smart, casual or sporty against all odds.
Surprisingly, the participants, known as "sixers", claim that their efforts went largely unnoticed at work and around the house.
The grime and lack of variety did mount up at times, but as one person on this video says: "The positive outweighed moments I wanted to burn my jeans."
Although Six Items Or Less seems a bit extreme, I can definitely see how the adoption of a smaller wardrobe could result in a cleaner head, and bedroom.
Personally, the six items I would throw into my tiny hypothetical suitcase would be jeans, T-shirt, shirt, jacket, chinos and shorts - all essential.
Don't worry just yet though, because hygiene constraints mean the sixer movement has a long way to go before any dents are made on industry sales.
