Do you wear a broad mix of the clothes you own on a regular basis, or cycle through a fraction of them over and over?

POC- Personally Owned Clothing when not on duty. ACU or PTs when on duty. I try not to wear other peoples clothes.

All I own are gray tee shirts and jeans. Have worn that for decades. Some sat boring, I say less to have to think about in the morning.

I think it's human nature to re-wear your favorite pieces. This is especially true in a world full of impulse buys and purchases based on the fact that there was a sale.

I didn't get the question...

On the weekends I rotate the same two pairs of cargo shorts and about five different tees or polos and athletic shoes.

I have been wearing the same dozen slacks/jackets for the last 7 years. So I always wear those that are the same. But, I like to mix up the button downs and ties (when I have to wear them). I wear the same 2 pairs of shoes all week depending on the colour of the suit.

I don't have many clothes. I'm like a cartoon character and it seems like I wear the same thing everyday.

Sherrigoo - do you wear all the clothes you have or do you have a hand full of outfits that you wear over and over?

What does this question even mean?

Usually just a fraction. Of course when the seams at the armpits come undone it gets really annoying. Lift my arm up to grab something and everyone roars in laughter. Ehem. But yeah, I re-wear my favorites until they are no more. That's my general clothing philosophy.

Answer: lots of clothes. Wear one set half a day. Nuff' said.

I only own 10 shirts and 5 pairs of pants so neither.

Ok, I'll fess up to being vain and slightly high maintenance. I am fortunate enough to have a huge wardrobe and won't wear the same thing in a 60 day window with the exception being staple pieces like black/grey/khaki dress pants or skirts. I love my closet! It's my happy place.

I agree bigbad, this is truly a bad question, the answer choices don't match the question!?

I probably have a couple hundred outfits in all and wear only about 5-10 of them frequently

gjb2779

Same stuff for the most part at work & mix and match for more fashion choices when going out

@Daveo5: everything is relative, and just about every place in the US is more humid than Arazona.

I second what EarlyBird said about humidity. I am from Houston and moved to Dallas about 10 years ago. While Dallas isn't quite as dry as Arizona, it's enough to tell a difference.

I don't understand the options. what does "match" have to do with the question?

Earlybird. Seriously Oregon is not humid. Perhaps it is compared to arizona but not really. I'm originally from the northwest and have worked and lived all over.

Depends on how often I do my laundry

Side note, those who think AZ is way too hot, wrong! I'll take an Arizona 110 degree day over am Oregon day of 85 any day. Humidity is a killer.

I had beautiful clothes from when I was working (in phx) but after moving to Oregon, to care for elderly parents, the've all gone to charity. I now wear same 10 - 15 pieces of very comfortable clothing.

I wear scrubs to work, so there's not a lot of variety.

If I really like a shirt or such I buy two. It looks as if I wear the same one every day then but I cycle through those two or three identical looking.


08/16/12 1:49 pm

That's a good question. I want to go through them more but get lazy or don't have time to try and figure out what looks good

Most of my time is spent in scrubs cycle thru what's clean

Usually jeans and a t-shirt, or when it's this miserably hot, just shorts. I rotate through them to balance the wear, they're all the same. I have a whole pile of "business casual" (whatever that is) that eventually I'll cut into shorts - it's not like I'll be working for idiots again.

I have TONS of clothes but I end up wearing the same thing all the time. Especially in the summer. I mix it up more in the winter.

Not sure if it's mix or match but I pretty much wear the same ol' threads with consistency.

3 pairs of jeans 4 pairs of shorts and 6 shirts. I refuse to wear anything else

I have a total of around 16 outfits year wide. Half cold half warm


08/16/12 12:20 pm

jeans and t-shirts in the winter and shorts and t-shirts or tank tops in the summer..I am bored with my wardrobe :(

I pretty much cycle through except for not wearing long sleeves in summer. But I'll wear tanks in winter and layer. I guess that's what great about the south, you don't need huge jackets in winter except maybe a few days.

Ralph Lauren polos are the way to go! :D

I just hope this is one question that somehow doesn't devolve into an argument about the BIBLE! Then again, why not? It's certainly becoming amusing!...
