Anatomy of His Closet
While the majority of our go-to closet tips can apply to any closet, we thought it was time we dissected His. From display areas to suit hangers, we set up the NEAT man with the perfect place to hang his hat. Discover our guide below on the anatomy of His closet.
Even Tan France would agree that implementing matching hangers is a must in order to get that streamlined look. The typical man's closet should have both a slim hanger to optimize space, and a stronger hanger for suits and jackets. Make sure both hanger styles are the same shade and material, if possible.
Not only is putting together an outfit easier, but a color coded wardrobe is also more appealing to the eye. Color code within each category, starting with white and ending with black. You'll thank us later.
It's important to be able to see all your shoes, and shelves are the best way to accomplish that. Line them up by style first, then color. If space is tight, don't be afraid to store out of season styles in a bin up high. If your closet doesn't have lower shelves, look for modular stacking options you can add.
We only use what we can see and the rest tends to be forgotten. So, don't hide hats and ties. Display them on shelves, whenever possible. Pedestals for hats and linen organizers for belts and ties are a few of our favorite ways to showcase men's accessories.
At the very least, every closet should have a tray to catch the contents of your pockets at the end of the day. A drop zone can also act as landing place for a go-to watch, sunglasses, or other accessories so they don't add clutter to the space.
