Letters from readers told me that I wasn't the only one who checked out their husband's wardrobe before letting him leave the house. Mine put comfort before fashion, which meant that anything well worn was kept to wear again and again and again. Whatever configuration the hangers presented, was what he wore. If a checked shirt was hanging next to striped pants ... Bingo! An outfit. Throwing away a comfortable suit was hard to do -- even if the styles had changed twice since its purchase. Getting him to buy a new one, or any new clothes for that matter, was nearly impossible! This drove me crazy.
