Neuroses of a Modern Gentleman V

I wish I knew how most men stored their belts. I hang mine on a couple of spinning belt hooks that hang from my closet rod. Due to my unfortunate shoe fetish, my belt collection resembles a box of crayons. So each hook is holding at least 2 belts, sometimes 3. As a general rule, I’ve got dress belts on one hook, and casual belts on the other.

The problem is that I have some belts that go both ways. Sometimes, if I’m trying to dress down a suit or dress up khakis & a sweater, there are a lot of options. A medium brown belt day could result in a solid medium brown belt, one with contrast stitching, or a matte crocodile belt I’ve got. And because they are at least 2 deep on spinning hooks, it’s almost impossible to carefully weigh each option and still leave the house. 

So…I spend a significant chunk of my day fearing Sub-Optimal Belt Selection. In other words, the belt I’ve got on is fine, but there may have been a better belt in the closet.

Wingtip hopes to introduce a solution to this problem later this year, but until then, I’m exploring pharmaceutical solutions.

I share your shoe and belt fetishes.
I hang my casual belts from a door rack that has 16 hooks. Each hook contains three to four belts. This is a fairly easy method to find what you need.
The hard problem is my dress belts; mostly exotics or leathers with silver findings. I keep them loosely coiled and bagged in silk or cotton bags. I have three drawers full of these. Not only is it hard to find the one I know I?m looking for, but every time I really dig through a drawer I find all sorts of things I totally forgot I had.
Kind of like going shopping. :~)
