"Sunday Runway, Closeted . . . "

Steve Gambrel, New York, NY       
Greetings,

Well, if we're going to spend our Sundays together chattering on about men's fashion - we should at least spend a few moments examining where all these clothes are going to be kept.  And after spending a luxurious Saturday afternoon re-organizing my own closet - (sweaters re-folded and back in flawless organization, socks all paired back together, dress shirts back in order - solids, stripes, then patterns (from light colours to dark colours) - today seems to be the perfect day from some serious closet envy.

Of all the things that my life might be missing - having my own personal valet to maintain and organize my clothing would be the zenith of perfection.

But, until then - let's just spend a few minutes seeing how it's done . . .

Apart from Steve Gambrel having flawless taste, this studded closet is exceptional. I'm ready to move in.

While I love a dark rich wood for a gentlemans closet, there is something really fabulous about these colorful closets, the blue is amazing, ditto the red. All of them are really great looking.......wonderful post!

These closets are wonderful. While Ralph Lauren's closet was exactly as I would have expected it to be, I was rather suprised by James Andrew's closet. He has the most stunning wardrobe, I expected something different.

OK, I an GREEN with envy...my own closet is small and a mess...I am going right now to do something about it. As far as I am concerned, you and James Andrew are the top. I have seen Michael Smiths closet and I could cry from jealousy.

Noreen,

Those lovely slippers get to trot around San Francisco with a fair amount of regularity. Chic and cozy - my favourite.

Cheers,
Scot

My favorite closet is yours, hands down... specially since I'm very jealous for your shoe collection...

Ms. P and C said...

Love it. This makes me realize how unfairly proportioned most rental unit's closets are...sadly, I don't have one of those great Edwardian walk-ins. I do have 2 closets though, but neither one looks like this!

Scot Meacham Wood said...

Thanks Erik!

My shoes are the source of my secret powers . . .

Lol,
Scot
