The first step to making The Black Shirt Project successful is to be aware of where I am currently at.
How many black shirts do I already have?
How many non-black shirts do I still have?
Am I really willing to let go of all these good shirts I currently have?
In my project introduction, I have set the goal to make 90% of my wardrobe all black.
But, I realized that I do have to set some more project rules.
The Black Shirt Project Rules
I only have 2 simple rules for now.
- I am allowed to wear non-black shirts at home.
At home, I should be free to wear anything I want. This is also the reason why my goal is just 90%. The remaining 10% would be my very comfortable shirts at home. They don’t have to be black.
- My black shirts would fall under 3 types: casual, semi-formal, and formal.
The casual shirts would be my everyday go-to shirts. They are plain, black cotton T-shirts that are comfortable to wear.
The semi-formal shirts are polo shirts that would most likely be worn every Sunday at church and maybe occasional meetups and gatherings.
I’m just going to keep a mental note of these rules or go back to this blog post anytime.
Now that I got those additional rules out of the way, I will start this project by auditing my current wardrobe.
I have to know exactly where I am starting this project.
Looking at my shirts, I can roughly say that I am around 40% with this project.
This is actually even better than I expected!
I thought I was only at 10%.
I am off to a great start and will do my best until I achieve the goal. 🙂
I will keep doing audits like this one from time to time.
That way I could see the milestones as I achieve the 90% goal.
