Just as choosing to ride a bike instead of maintaining two cars has been financially liberating, I wonder what would be freed up in my life by committing consciously to a fashion uniform. How much energy do I waste on any given day trying to decide what to wear, especially when I'm happiest in my uniform? Would I accomplish any unfulfilled goals (finding a more fulfilling job, achieving fluency in French?) if I could nearly dress each morning with my eyes closed? I was able to change my relationship with the automobile to my ultimate benefit, despite living in a car-centric world. Can I similarly change my relationship with clothes despite a life-long obsession with them and fed by the continual arrival of fashion catalogs? Have any other chic cyclist toyed with this question or done anything about it? Do any of you have a uniform?
