Thursday, a manly closet, and Etsy

"A Closet Without Pretense" by dembree

My boyfriend is in the process of cleaning out his closet and so I dedicate this etsy-designed closet to him (now let's see if he picks up any of these lovely... urr... very manly finds!)

Of course, no wire hangers - just vintage, French, or wooden (something all men want, right?):

4 Wooden Hangers via ladiesandgentlemen

The gents love their shoes too and this handmade Maple Storage Bench, by AbleandBaker, is the perfect place to store 'em (the shoes, not the fellas):

Of course a vintage shoe valet filled with brushes and polish, via valnorthwoods, belongs in the distinguished man's closet as well:

No silly baskets or bins for a man's winter sweaters. Better to go the vintage suitcase route especially if you have ones as cool as this blue-green set via OleaVintage:

And hanging in the closet, what fella wouldn't love the clean smell wafting from this set of three Provence lavender-filled sachets by auntierumpos?:

And if there's room (or, miracle of miracles, it's a walk-in-closet!) - how about a display of vintage (and a few wearable!) hats? Men are so darling in hats - why is it that they don't seem to believe that?

1960s Stingy Brim Fedora via FearlessVintage

And because men tend not to be super organized, I bet this uncut pattern of closet accessories from the 1970s (via GreatScott) would be a big help:

And for all those all those wonderful ties, this Galloping Deer Wooden Tie Rack via ButlerandMaid is a must:

And, finally, who wouldn't love this Horse Shoe Hanging Rack via WhiteWillowVintage? It would make hanging things up such a delight!

P.S. The bf took a look at my finds - apparently still too girly... I guess I still have some work to do on him!


  1. I thought all of your finds were very clever and NICE. so sorry your bf wasn't really interested. I was! however, I, too, am a girl.


  2. What a creative post. thanks for featuring my "French Laundry hangers".

  3. Thanks! I agree. Men need to start wearing hats! I love a man in a hat.

  4. Love this! Such a clever way to group and feature finds--and I was very inspired, too (I wonder if my husband will notice if I reorganizine his closet and add a row of fedoras?)

    Thank you for mentioning my sachets--I am extending a 10% discount to your readers at my shop who mention this post ;)

  5. I'm with Val....I thought your selections were very clever and manly in a brave-sort of man way! For that kind of guy that's willing to take some risks - either with a vintage fedora or killer shoe valet.

    Thanks for featuring my Horse Shoe Hanging Rack!

    Great post.
