    Let's say you have a T-shirt collection, Do you wear that shit until it falls apart? throw it out? donate it? FOR LIFE?

    I am a basic dresser who only wears black t-shirts and blue jeans and I usually just wear them until they fall apart. :dontknow: I also like to find worn in shit at the thrift shop.

    I toss my gear when the rhinestones lose their sparkle.

    I would be too, if my midsection didn't look like a wad of chewed up bubble gum when I sit down. I should have never quit smoking. :facepalm:

    T-Shirts and jeans I wear until they are falling apart at the seams. If they are really bad, I only wear them around the house.

    I'm the same size I was in high school and I still have clothing items from high school, you won't catch me any time soon wearing midriff-exposing baby-t's or mens Dickies.

    The only things from that era that are still in my wardrobe rotation are a pair of Army boots and a Jane's Addiction t-shirt.

    When it comes to dresses and expensive clothing items, I take care of them and put them away after use, so that stuff lasts for many years. I'm not "trendy" so it isn't the type of stuff that looks too outdated to wear.

    As far as jeans, t-shirts, and cardigans go, I'll wear them all the time at home and until they get ratty. If they're really bad, they get turned into clothing I'll wear when painting walls, backwoods camping for several days, or heavy duty cleaning.

    I have the wardrobe I wear in public and the one I wear at home.

    i'm a bit of a pack rat and until recently i had a few things that i kept for no particular reason.

    i gave away an air force pilot's arctic coat to a wonderful young lady, and a full length leather coat to my GFs little brother. i bought them in the early 70s and they were hardly ever worn.

    it's hard to find a use for arctic gear in phoenix.
