As a menswear blogger, I always have an unconscious and unresolved need for more—more brogues, more selvage, more chambray, more, more, more. One way I fight this urge is to splurge every now and again (or ask others to shell out on my behalf) on those items that I know will last, if not a lifetime, then at least quite a while. These trappings can and should extend beyond the closet, too. Now, a candle won't be around forever, but the stress reduction derived from sitting down in a lounge chair, strumming a custom electric, and lighting that candle will certainly add minutes to your life.
