Denim HQ – Denim Monk Part 2

2013-12-15 11.55.09

I like to approach things scientifically, when you make an assertion you should be prepared to have it challenged and therefore evidence will be required. To give this challenge a scientific base I will begin by openly declaring exactly what I own currently in terms of items which are covered by the challenge. This is how I begin, these are the items which will take me through the next 2 years.

Something which I forgot to mention in part 1 is formal wear, I do own a suit, and white shirts, and ties, and some generic shoes but I do not wear them often. I am fortunate enough to work in a job which does not require me to be smartly dressed very often and I do not like wearing suits. If you ever see me in one then I must be going to a wedding, a funeral or court.

This list is all I have and all I will have. Looking at the list I am sure that you will inevitably draw conclusions about where I will have no issues (jeans?), and where I might struggle (jackets and coats?). I’m also sure that the list may invite comparison with your own wardrobe, this is natural.

Unlike other multi part post on the blog, this one won’t be regularly updated in the traditional sense. I won’t revisit Denim Monk as it is simply my way from here on in and for the next two years at least. Life without desire for new clothing or the need for excess sounds incredibly liberating to me right now.
