The 10-Item Wardrobe
A few of
Canadian Air Force pilot Matt Souveny has made headlines recently for paring down his wardrobe to just ten carefully selected articles of clothing (excluding underwear and socks), and vowing to only wear those pieces for an entire year. The list includes: one pair of pants, one pair of shorts, two T-shirts, one button-down, one sweatshirt, one pair of sneakers, one pair of boots, a blazer and a belt. Much of the kit comes from performance brand Outlier—a smart choice. But Esquire believes they can improve on the minimalist wardrobe. "As an airman, he wears a uniform to work everyday, freeing him to curate his weekend wardrobe however he pleases," writes Andrew Luecke. "But most of us are city dwellers with regular jobs and need versatile items that can go from day to drinks seamlessly." So they've compiled their own ten-piece collection for your pared-down pleasure.
