View Full Version : What are you wearing?

Did the laundry a couple of days ago and faced with an enormous pile of ironing.

Many of the clothes are frankly scary, although I obviously choose to wear them when I bought them, and it got me wondering how much I could get rid of.

How big is your wardrobe? What's the minimum number of shirts/jeans/pants/shoes etc. you could survive on? I like the idea of being able to fit all my stuff in a couple of suitcases.

Right now? A little vest and pants ;)

As for the wardrobe thing... yeah way too much in there, most of which either doesn't fit properly or I'm bored of, etc. I've already had a huge clearout this year and taken a few bags of clothes to the local charity shops but still so much I could get rid of. As for minimum number of items... good question but as a bird I couldn't possibly answer that :D


If I were you I'd start by getting rid of any nasty old ill-fitting jeans, peach-coloured shirts, rubber shoes, that sort of thing...

Hmmm.. No I don't think I'll answer the thread name, and my wardrobe is very small because I just moved and got rid of loads of clothes and havent had a chance to fill it back up.

I'm covered heat to foot with a waterproof coat and pants, a mask, two layers of latex on my exposed skin, and tape.

Just kidding, that was 10 min ago, now I'm wearing just what was underneath, a T-shirt and mesh shorts.

Pink polo and pink/blue/green/orange multi plaid RL shorts. :)

And I survive (in the sense that, out of the clothes I have, these are the ones I wear 95% of the time) on sort of about four or five biz-casual outfits, about 3-4 casual outfits, and 3-4 summery outfits.

Summer in g-town means I change a lot more... my day is like:

- Wear biz-casual outfit during the day
- Change into running clothes and run
- Change into swimming clothes
- Change into some kind of après wear shorts and polo or something.
- Put whatever boxers and t-shirt on to sleep in

Some jeans and a t-shirt. I'm sitting watching TV with my Dad and brother, we aren't really wear underwear around each other kind of family.
Speaking of underwear, am I the only person in this forum that prefers briefs over boxers?

But for overall clothing: About 10 hoodies, 2 jeans, 2 black jeans, lot of t-shirts, couple shorts, couple non denim pants for work, like 12 pairs of briefs and 4 pairs of boxers, and more socks that I want to count.

And why is underwear measured in pairs even though you wear them in single units?

My wardrobe is huge and full of things I'll never wear again :o I keep sentimental things from my mid-teen years that were gifts, I'm only 21 and the bad thing is there just a fraction too small for me.

Right now I'm wearing me usual pyjamas - anything light and baggy!

But we should really get to the root of this inventorying underwear by "pairs"

Bra + jeans

I don't actually have that much clothing, for a girl, though I do have about 20 tank tops - but they're tiny and don't take up much space. I have a lot jeans, skirts, woolen items. Heavy on the grey, navy, and black.

I have about 2x as much (by volume, much more by weight) electronics, and about 4x as much (again by volume) kitchen stuff. :eek:

heh...well, seeing as i'm at work right now and we just had the "dress code" talk on friday...

i'm wearing a white v-neck tee, a very flowy knee-length skirt, and big ol' hemp sandals.

my wardrobe is about average for a girl, really. just some tank tops (plain and printed with silly things), solid-colored tees (mostly black or dark grey), some printed tees (with all kinds of crazy things on them), three cardigans, a few pairs of flared jeans, a pair of capris, and about 15 skirts and dresses. shoes are a minimum...since i used to have a shoe-collecting problem. :p

How big is your wardrobe? What's the minimum number of shirts/jeans/pants/shoes etc. you could survive on? Oh dear. My wardrobe? Er... big horizontal dresser full. Big vertical dresser, full. Closet full. Tall bookcase is now a v full clothes-case. Clothes in a ton of bags and suitcases strewn about my room, full. Clothes in the hallway closet. Clothes in my sister's room. Clothes in the living room. Clothes at the apartment. Clothes in storage. Er, I have a lot of clothes. And shoes. :o

Minimum to survive on? Well, I dunno... depends really. Do I have to ever dress up for say, a hypothetical job? Ah, screw it. I can't answer that at all. The ironic thing about my having so many damned things to wear is that all I ever seem to wear are pjs and sweats. :D

:edit: Oopsies. Forgot to put in what I'm wearing right now.... an oversized tee, funky cropped pj pants, and socks.

What's the minimum number of shirts/jeans/pants/shoes etc. you could survive on?Well, assuming by "survive on" you don't literally mean survive on, but rather "function in your normal life/work mix", I get by with:

For work: about 10-12 pairs of dress pants/"dockers", several long-sleeve shirts, some of which are tie-compatible, and a decent number of short sleeve polo-style or button-down shirts for variety, along with the obvious socks, undershirts, underwear, and a couple pair of dress shoes (black, brown).

For "life": I have a few pairs of jeans, many pairs of shorts (jeans, khakis, cargo), a large number of running shorts/shirts/socks/hats, sandals, many t-shirts, sweaters, sweatshirts, etc.

All told, however, I probably have about 10 large suitcases worth of clothing.

Right now, however, I'm wearing black dress pants, a light green long-sleeve dress shirt, tie, undershirt, briefs, black socks, and black leather shoes. Also a watch and two rings.

I like the idea of being able to fit all my stuff in a couple of suitcases.In case you have to disappear on short notice or something?

DH says, "Too big." I say, "Not big enough."

Unfortunately, I don't wear the clothes that I have and love enough, since I wear scrubs to my current job every weekday and every other weekend. I am starting to accumulate a nice scrub collection though.

Currently wearing light blue Dickies scrubs.

I've just realised, thanks to this thread, that I'm wearing a Guinness shirt and Guinness shorts. The shirt I was wearing earlier with (non Guinness-branded) jeans, then took off the jeans and put on the shorts to loaf around.

Not that anyone can see, but if they could they'd think I tried this and I would die of shame.

Right now, I'm wearing a Drop Dead, Gorgeous band tee, some kind of half-arsed sweat pants, some red boxers that I didn't know I had, and some socks.

My 'wardrobe' consists of 64 shirts: 50 black band shirts, 5 red band shirts, 3 green band shirts, 2 camoflage shirts, 2 blue shirts, and 1 white polo; 7 pairs of pants: 3 JNCO Black jeans, 2 Black Levis, and 2 unknown pairs of blue jeans.

My school wardrobe consists of 6 pairs of khaki pants and 6 white dress shirts.

I have an unknown amount of nonmatching socks. :p

I'm wearing PJ bottoms and a hooded jumper, although I'm sure that sounds strange to many of you because it's currently winter in Australia.

In the summer, I'd be doing what many of you are doing and posting in my boxers (or sometimes briefs), although sometimes I don't even wear underpants......

My white polo shirt from work today. I have some espresso splattered on the sleeve and chocolate ice cream around the waist.

Also my ratty shorts that are rotting away. None of the pockets hold anything anymore because they have worn through, and one of the hems around the leg is entirely separating, making a little loop at my knee. There are three holes in the front and I can see my boxers. :o

My wardrobe consists of about 6 pairs of skinny legged jeans, about 15 threadless t shirts, 2 pairs of boardshorts, 2 pairs of flip flops, and a few pairs of shoes. It's alright because my mom does laundry every day.

My summer clothes consist of mostly boardshorts and reefs. Or, if I dont plan on beaching, I wear a pair of jeans, a shirt and my Sambas.

Right now, I am wearing some Levi Skinny's folded up a couple times, a Boards of Canada shirt, and my rainbows.

Typical Florida wardrobe. I think. I wear the same to church. :p

Not as daring as some, probably due to the small kid wandering around and the open windows and doors.
