Your emails and questions haven't been lost, just filed away. I plan to start replying to your emails and questions each week on the blog as they are good questions I think many men can benefit from.
A recent question from Marc that ties into a great cause I'm supporting is:
Q. One issue I battle with on and off is... how do you know if you have too many clothes?
A. If you question that you might have too many clothes, the answer is, your probably do.
Knowing what to keep, replace, or burn is not as easily answered. It really depends on what you have and how long you've worn it (it's style, fit and condition).
Since trying to figure this out is probably not high on you or your partner's To-Do List, I recommend you hire a professional for a wardrobe analysis. It usually costs a few hundred dollars, but is well worth it when you consider how it will help you refine your wardrobe, define your style, and perhaps unearth oldies but goodies that you may not have thought of wearing with x, y and z. In general, most Americans regularly wear only 30% of what is in their (Super Sized) closets.
Of course I am going to recommend my company's service as numero uno for Wardrobe Analysis because Hendricks Park makes it easy and fun to go through your closet virtually with one of our Style Experts on Skype. Bonus: if there are things you decide you want to replace or enhance (e.g. those shoes you bought last year that you don't have anything to wear with), but you don't have time to shop, we can send you some quality recommendations and help make sure it looks right on you (via Skype once again).

Best yet, Hendricks Park is hosting a Fall Clothing Drive for Career Gear a non-profit organization helping disadvantaged men achieve independence through employment success.
So, when you go through your closet and purge out some gently worn business clothing that still has life-just not in your life-you can donate it to Career Gear and help a disadvantaged man look and feel his best during that job interview, first day on the job, etc.
NOTE: Hendricks Park clients can easily donate to Career Gear by placing their donations in your pre-paid shipping box.
Please help me spread the word about this wonderful cause on your social media pages Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn:
P.S. Career Gear also needs financial support to fund their training programs. If you would like to make a financial contribution, please visit the CG donation page or include a check to Career Gear in your next Hendricks Park box. Career Gear welcomes any level of support big or small and says "every little bit helps!"
