I quite agree with you Peter.
I’m at that age where I have more clothes than I need. Although I find it impossible to always resist taking a look in the shops…
I used to be a regular shopper in M&S (years ago) and am still wearing a lot of their stuff. It was good quality at that time and I bought when on Sale… some is perhaps 30+ years old and still washes and wears well - their wool sweaters are wonderfully warm in winter and the summer cottons and linen are just right for the heat.
Excess good-condition stuff can be donated to worthy causes… it makes sense to move stuff on… but I have had to force myself to part with a few of the outfits which I had particularly liked in my “other life”
