For me, it depends on the value of what I wear like as an example, I've always been known to wear favorite shirts or pants over agin because of the comfort they give me. I was just curious if anyone else happens to wear the same thing over and over.

Well, do you?

Yes, I have that. I tend to wear certain clothes over and over. Half the stuff I buy I wont wear again and there are a select few that I love wearing. Right now though it also has a lot to do with financial stuff right now as well. I haven't gone clothes shopping in ages.

I wear the same clothes over and over and over, because I don't feel a need to have variety in my wearing of clothes.

For me, I can wear a shirt for days, even if it gets dirty. I always feel like wearing dirty shirts are better because of go messy I can be at home but when I leave the house, I always throw on a new shirt or a hoodie or whatever. It just seems easier than dirtying up clean shirts over ones that on,y have a few dirty stains.

Nope. I can't even wear the same pair of pajama for two nights in a row, no matter how I clean I am when I get out of the shower! I love to go shopping, too, and I like to get new outfits if I save up enough money. Then sometimes I randomly have the interest to wear clothes I wouldn't normally wear and try to make it into an outfit that works.

Yes I'll usually wear the same outfit over and over until my Mam says I have to change.

I wear some of the same clothes without washing them if I haven't done laundry and I'm running out of clothes or sometimes if I only wore it once, I really like the outfit and it doesn't seem dirty. Also, I seriously only have one pair of jeans right now. I can't afford clothes right now.

Somewhat related to me, but I try to change it and wear clean clothes more often.

I've never liked new clothes though.

I once seriously considered buying 100 t-shirts of the same kind from some place who delivers to places that print logo's and stuff on t-shirts, but sadly I didn't have the cash at the time. When I find something I like, I tend to stick to it. Not always though, there was a period when I dressed as flashy as possible, to get the attention of girls on the town. I went with pink socks with kitties on, I had a full pink outfit (jeans, pink belt, white shirt, pink/white socks, white shoes), and also a full green outfit(green shirt/belt/socks/shoes with orinary jeans). I did get the attention I wanted, and my current wife still talks about my pink kitty socks.

Sometimes. Only because I don't like to decide what I should wear so it's easier to just put on the same thing as before. As a child my mom would pick clothes out for me and no way could I wear the same stuff every day or the same week or else I would get teased about it in school. But I do wear my same pajamas everyday and socks and bras. Then when it's time to get ready for work, I put on my work uniform. But if I am at home and I decided I want to go for a walk, I will wear the same thing as the day before or like I did last time when I went out.

yes I feel comfortable in hoodies and can wear the same one for weeks sometimes. I have lots but 2 or 3 very comfortable soft ones.

I also have a favorite green shirt which I have had since I was 13 (nearly 20 years ago) which I used to wear all the time as a teenager. It still fits me and is in good condition. I don't let my mum see me wearing it as she thinks I gave it to charity years ago when I moved out haha

I usually wear the same tshirts and jeans over and over. I have a couple of tshirts and jeans I like. But I cant be bothered with getting new ones all the time, 'cause that involves going into shops, trying them on etc... And I hate that! And yes, I know I can order tshirts online, I just need to get around to it. Shopping is really not my thing..

I'm not sure.

My first answer was no. I don't want my favourite clothes to tear and get worn down too quickly from wearing and washing them every day.

However, I only have few clothes, like, only two pairs of trousers for example, so I do end up wearing the same clothes far more often than other people who have tons of clothes.

I like variety but clothes are expensive, I need them to be comfortable and want them to be pretty and my autism gets in the way of simply going shopping whenever, wherever.

I change clothes everyday, but I have many of the same items, plain black t-shirts, black jeans, grey or black sweat shirts, black boots. And my black leather jacket. I have few suits and other things as well.

Well, it all depends, really... I mean like i said, if it's one of my favorite anime shirts... or I just don't feel like changing then i don't. It all depends, really.
