Go 646 And Build A Dewey Decimal Wardrobe

The Dewey Decimal System is imperfect. Despite this, it’s something that is easily identifiable with libraries and librarians. Classification numbers, as well as the system as a whole, remind us both of those childhood libraries and the libraries we make ourselves regulars at now.

Find below a really rad collection of Dewey Decimal–themed wares to build yourself the most bookish, nerdy, and librarian approved wardrobe you can imagine. I take full credit for the fact your wallet is going to be crying shortly, but I also take full credit for helping you dress your 646 best.

Bookmark this list and know that anything here would likely make for an excellent gift for the librarians and library lovers in your life for birthdays, holidays, or “just thinking about you” days.
