    Well done @lobster, a happy second home found for the shirts!

  • use - 6 pair pants/jeans
    1 set shorts
    5 shirts
    2 jackets
    keep 1 suit because sometimes must use..
    Have: two closets/2.5 dressers and a cabinet of acquired clothes
    Used to have more, but slowly divesting clothing inventory.
    Weird thing - Every time I clear the garage, family discovers a new free storage facility
