SPRING CLEAN­ING FOR MEN

De­clut­ter your wardrobe with these use­ful tips

Style Magazine - - Fashion -

Spring is renowned for be­ing the time to clean and de­clut­ter. A com­mon crim­i­nal be­ing left out of this es­sen­tial overhaul is the wardrobe — whether we think there’s noth­ing in there that can go, or it’s sim­ply too over­whelm­ing.

Here are some hard-and-fast tips to help with the lat­ter.

DUST

Dust is an ideal tell-all as to how much you re­ally wear those old shoes.

If there is a nice layer of grey around where the shoes were sit­ting once you drag them out, or if there is dust over or in them, it’s time to give them up.

Same goes if you dis­turb a nice lil’ daddy long-legs as you reach in for that long-dis­carded footwear.

OFF-TREND OR RETRO WEAR

Un­less you reg­u­larly go to retro-themed par­ties, these need to go.

Even if you feel the need to com­mem­o­rate the end of the “good old days” with a cer­e­mo­nial burn­ing of those neon polo shirts from two decades ago.

A quick guide to these dated gar­ments are: the t-shirt with built-in long-sleeved lay­er­ing from 2005 brightly patterned bow-ties

hooded leather jack­ets that even JT doesn’t wear any­more

yes, neon polo shirts, that only very few men re­ally rocked well any­way belts with over­sized buck­les racer­back sin­glets *shud­der* and, of course, the hooded tank made fa­mous by bad-boy Corey Wor­thing­ton in the late 2000s.
