Have you ever heard of people overwhelmed by their clothing collections describe their bedrooms as being dominated by a floordrobe? I can’t help but wonder: is a capsule, minimalist wardrobe based on values of simplicity, and what works for the individual rather than socially or advertising-dominated ideals of style, the antithesis of a floordrobe.
Welcome to Minimaldrobe, a WordPress-based blog and Instagram feed, summed up by the idea: Make it simple, but significant.
Men’s fashion blogging is often on the smarter side, or on the high-end side: neither of these things particularly align with my life, although quality is always a better bastion than quantity. I speak from experience and disappointment.
There are plenty of great and genuinely inspirational capsule wardrobe/minimalist blogs, like A Small Wardrobe. However they are mainly written by women, perhaps led by Courtney Carver’s foundational popular Project 333, and therefore the information in them generally pertains to a feminine audience. Minimaldrobe is part of this blogosphere, of course, but each blog has its audience, and I hope it will take an important place in this burgeoning scene, shaped by the idea that you don’t need an unrealistic variety of clothes to be stylish or cool.
