Question Time Over Coffee — Wardrobe

Rory, over at Earthly Comforts, has posed a question this morning about our clothing collection, or what I’d call my wardrobe.

What % [percentage] of your clothing collection do you wear often? Do you wear all of your items evenly throughout the year or do you have favorites that you tend to wear more often and other items of clothing that are hardly ever worn?

I am retired and hardly ever go anywhere that requires “dressing up.” My clothing collection is casual, comfort-oriented, and modest. It consists of four pairs of denim jeans that I rotate wearing, half a dozen or so sport shirts, a handful of t-shirts, some sweatshirts, and a few pairs of sneakers. I do have a dress shirt, a pair of khaki pants, a sport coat, and a pair of black leather shoes just in case, but I can’t remember the last time just in case occurred.

So, to answer Rory’s question, I wear 100% of my clothing collection regularly, with only slight seasonal variations (e.g., t-shirts and cotton sport shirts in the summer and sweatshirts and flannel shirts in the winter).

    If ONLY I could just get RID of more of mine. The problem has been that I changed sizes a lot over the year, so I tend to keep a range of sizes from what fits to looser to a bit smaller and I’ve been glad I did because it didn’t have to buy the same stuff again. I had FINALLY cleaned out my tee shirt collection when Owen realized he was NEVER getting back into an XL again, especially since a lot of them were closer to L then XL — and many of them are extinct and interesting designs … and the drawers filled up again, though not to the degree they had been. I think I wear maybe 50% of the stuff I have? But to be fair, we have real seasons here.

    I definitely have summer and winter clothes. Of course being California, some days I wear my winter clothes over my summer clothes because I know I’ll need to start stripping as soon as the fog burns off.

        I thought as a general title to cover this sort of ‘series’ it was good. Questions being floated around over coffee. How good is that?……..
