    Sure thing. Unless you're tied down to the Apple ecosystem, there's really no reason to get an iPhone over a Samsung Galaxy. The final season of Dexter was the usual high quality except that ridiculous last scene. Maybe that's where I get my hated of lumberjacks. It features another item I was actually thinking about including on my list of items I have no use for: shirt pocket flaps.

    Trying to keep focused on more traditional/basic items.

    1. Anything corduroy, just never have liked the material. I have a pair corduroys pants and a corduroy blazer, and they both rarely get worn.
    2. Double-beasted topcoats/trenchcoats. Double-beasted peatcoats and blazers are fine, but I feel Double-beasted topcoats just don't hang well on my body.
    3. Monkstraps. They seem to be a love them or hate them type of item. I'm on hate the side.
    4. Boat shoes. I just prefer either sneakers or loafers
    5. Like many have said, French Cuff shirts. More trouble then they are worth. Double barrelled are close enough with less hassle.

    I find that within my personal style, certain items go it and out of style. 2 years ago, I had no polos and hated them, now I own 3 and wear them fairly often during the summer. I wore cardigans non-stop over Fall/Winter 2012 and 2013, but this year I have been wearing sweater jackets and my cardigans have gone virutally unworn. I used to wear purple shirts quite a bit, now I my non-neutral color of choice is green.

    Obviously that's why you have to go with a perpetual calendar. Easy-peasy.

    That's interesting. I've been undergoing a bit of an evolution in the opposite direction. And purple is another thing that I once swore off. I really thought it had no place in my wardrobe at all. But then I got a beautiful purple grenadine tie (from Chipp, which I can't recommend highly enough) and started seeing how great it looked with my navy suit...and my charcoal suit...and my brown tweed suit...

    Same boat for me. Never thought I would wear purple. Then I picked up a t-shirt in a dark purple and really liked it, which led to a dark purple tie, which led to a lighter purple tie with white stripes, which led to a purple gingham shirt. Purple ties are surprisingly versatile, with the bonus of not matching a suit like a navy tie does.

    I have a purple pindot tie that gets more wear than almost any of my other ties.

    Count me in for purple. 4 dress shirts, 1 casual button down, 1 tie (wearing it now...came in handy for an interview for a place whose dominant color is purple), and 2 pairs of chinos, one for winter and one lightweight for summer which has yet to be warn. Get compliments on the heavier pair all the time (from Bonobos).

    Shomas,
    Just wanted to say that I have enjoyed reading about your openness to change and willingness to re-think earlier positions. You really have a great attitude and sets a good example of how to think about clothing and style. Thank you for that.
