Do you match up everything before you wear it? Or do you just grab what you need for the task/duty/context at the time you need it? Combination?

I do a combo but this winter downunder I'm thinking about just putting everything together into setups ahead of time and just breaking out the whole setup from hat to shoes at the right time.

Only if am going to a wedding or dinner.

Hello World said it about 5 years ago, when reach over 30 (unless your a DJ or creative) you won’t be wearing image tees, big logos or caps.

I kinda match stuff together in my head first. Then try it and see if it works.

I've got a plain grey, woolen, unbranded New Era cap that I break out every now and again depending on weather and what I'm wearing. Don't see a problem with it.

I've been regressing.

In my mid-20s I was dressed like an aristocratic outdoorsman but now I've started buying graphic tees, baseball caps and trainers again.

I mean, like, do you plan your getups in advance? Like a week before or at the beginning of a season?

I do mine every time I finish work for my 6 days off so it’s like every 10 days. I check the weather for the week and I’ll have an outfit ready for each day and a couple of spare in mind depending on weather change.

I also do this for my Mrs and 3 kids.
