      >Why not just wash them once a week?
      He’s basically set for life. When a pair wears out he just has to grab another from his stock storage instead of having do sock shopping every few months. Very efficient and frees up time and energy for things that are important. The way normal people buy basics is akin to the way poor teenagers buy gas when they borroow their parents car – just putting $10 in the tank at a time.

        Umm, fabric deteriorates over time, you know? Especially the plastic elastic used in socks. The constant change in temperature and humidity will destroy the elastic over time. You’ll be wearing floppy bags on your feet after a few years, not socks.

          Umm, the quality of clothing deteriorates over time, especially natural materials that are replaced by plastic and labor is moved to even poorer countries. You’ll be buying floppy bags after a few years, not socks.

            Yeah if current trends continue that will be the case. The other thing to consider is geopolitical strife and possibly war. Alliances are moving away from the United States and it’s just a matter of time before China becomes the financial capital of the world. Cheap Chinese goods may not always be as readily available as they are now. China/asia could find new markets for their goods, including their own (presently) impoverished populations. For all the preppers squirrelling away storable food, toilet paper, golden coins etc, you may also want to think about hoarding some socks & undies and other clothing items. We take cheap imports for granted now, but it wasn’t too long ago that our forbears would commonly resort to sewing up holes in socks and patching and repairing torn clothes.

    This is really smart. I wish I did this. I hate having to match up all the different socks after doing laundry.

    Yeah aside from my church clothes I wear the same thing everyday- all black jeans and shirt. Don’t have to waste decision making power on something as stupid as what I’m going to wear.

      Yep. Went down the path a few years ago.
      Trying to find a good tailor at the moment who I can work with on designing my ideal pants (have not found the right fabric/feature combo after exhaustive searching), then I’ll have them make like 20 and buy the pattern from them as well.
      I decided a couple weeks ago it was probably time to move past t-shirts and find a good button-down to buy a stack of, but again I’m having issues locating a good candidate. I haven’t yet found a black 100% cotton midweight canvas tall slim-fit with either a single breast pocket or none (the holy grail would be a concealed pocket with vertical zipper but that feature by itself is rare). I might just end up getting those custom as well.

      Because I wear black jeans at work this is basically me too. I just make my wardrobe revolbe around my work jeans since I wear them 5-6 times a week.

    When I was a child I used to hate it when the stitch at the end of the sock would be underneath my toes
    My mother always had to put them on correctly until I started putting them on myself

    I bought two packs of socks from target and got rid of all my old ones. kept my dress socks of course. it’s hardly autistic at all, it’s more autistic to have to sort and match a bunch of different brands and styles constantly.

    I wish I had bought a dozen plus of several clothing items in the past, as they become discontinued and the new versions are never as good. Pic related is a Carhartt K503 midweight 1/4 zip sweatshirt and I’ve got three but should have bought 20 of them because they’re a clean design, classy looking and very well made but sadly they’re no longer in production.

    when I needed new socks and underwear years ago I bought all the same black ankle socks and blue knit boxers. they’re both still holding up great and are still comfortable. when I need new stuff I’m gonna do the exact same thing

    I have a bunch of pairs of the same socks, but not that many. Instead of pairing them up I just chuck them into a big pail.

    Unfortunately yes. This year I’ve bought like 15 merz b schwanen t shirts. Each one is about $105. They’re just so hecking nice

        They’re loopwheel 100% cotton and the fit is perfect. They retain their shape very well. They’re also slightly heavier than most tees, so after a few washes they are a perfect density and softness.

      Damn those do look pretty good. And the heavyweight ones are 13.4 oz jesus hecking christ.
      I like the look of their button-down but
      >relaxed fit
      every hecking time. Know of anyone with similar quality/style in a slim?

      • Anonymous says:

        The 13.4 oz is way too much. Their 8.6 oz is the perfect balance.

        I own a nice Gitman Vintage button down Oxford shirt that is more of a classic/slim fit. That being said, most of their shirts are striped pattern with the exception of a few with chambray fabric
