    I am suggesting that minimalism is radical lifestyle choice, a true ascetic would quit his job.

    I don't actually advocate being minimalist, but even with 5 suits you can have more than someone with the same job, but who isn't even trying to be minimalist.

    You are absolutely correct.

    I used to be an ultra-minimalist...I had a job where I wore a suit every day and I only owned one navy suit and one grey suit, regardless of the season. On Fridays I might have worn the one sportcoat I owned at the time.

    I no longer wear a suit to work, but I am around people that do. I guarantee you that most of these guys don't even have 5 suits.

    Didn’t the $1500 wardrobe on the main page tackle this well? I think you could survive on that wardrobe if you really wanted to or had to do so. However, most of us can afford more, so we keep buying.

    I would take a long, hard look at my clothes, and will realize that I probably don't wear almost half of stuff in my wardrobe.
