The ideal appearance of clothing cannot long be maintained without a systematic management of clothing in storage and the reconditioning of garments for wear. These are the secrets of a well-controlled wardrobe. Different occupations require specific types of garments. The selection of clothing is then a problem of choosing values in materials suited to the demand of different activities. An ideal wardrobe contains combinations for different costumes planned for the intensive service and the varied purposes which we find our environment requires. The costume should be becoming and appropriate to the occasion. It need not be expensive or new but it must be neat, clean, fresh and orderly.
