wearing the same thing every day. - Page 2

post #16 of 77
So you're saying it would be a great idea for him?
post #17 of 77
if that's your idea of a good haircut.

No but it would go together like pee and carrots.

I'm not sure if I understand this correctly. If you mean to literally wear the same thing everyday, the answer is no. I don't think you mean that, though.
If you mean to get a uniform look, similar to how a guy can own a few suits but wear different shirts, shoes, etc., with the same suits repeatedly, then I think that's a pretty cool idea. Wear similar pants, style of shirts, sweaters, shoes. It would be cool but I really think it's a bad idea. It gets boring and I don't think that you'd enjoy yourself as much as if you tried new things more often.

I read an article somewhere about "great men" with OCD tendencies that wear the same thing everyday. Steve Jobs was one of the examples used: gray new balance, 25 pairs of the same jeans, same thing for the turtleneck. I kind of like the idea of a uniform, but I think the best way to conform to that without going over the deep end would be just to stick to the same brands that I dig. And I'm not trying to be nitpicky, but Wmmk, sometimes your writing tone gives off this pseudo-intellectual vibe. Shit gives me a headache.

no. i can't imagine how boring it'd be to wear the same sweater and shirt every day. get a pair of slim khaki's, slim wool trousers, 5+ different colored/striped ocbd's, a few sweaters/sweatshirts, bass weejuns, boat shoes for summer and maybe a couple thrifted sportcoats if you can find any small enough. you could obtain that with a fairly small sum of money and you wouldn't have to wear the same thing twice in one week.

i think you're asking the wrong crowd (obviously except a select few) the idea of the uniform is something a friend and I are going over very thoroughly these days. personally, besides everything that in inherent with wearing the same thing everyday (read, not the same clothes) i feel happier when i live in a certain item for a given amount of time. with that short bit being said, i don't think your uniform is the proper one. first of all, your 'wing tips' are cheap sneakers that will eventually wear out over time. i'd suggest something a bit more sturdy that can be purchased easily as time wears them out.

Seriously, this is a stupid idea. Don't do it. You will be the kid who wears the same thing everyday. This is a terrible idea.

It took me a decade or so to find my personal uniform style, and it's a variation of "wearing the same thing every day" concept. I have two dozen of slim-fitting gray/charcoal crew-neck long sleeve t-shirts (some in cashmere)... that I wear with a pair of slim-fitting jeans (out of a stable of about 50 that I own). All that is complemented with a pair of italian black/brown boots in the winter/ some well broken in loafers in the summer. A nice watch ( 18K Brietling 1884). For formal occasions, I own half a dozen of slim-cut Hugo Boss suits (same style/different shades). Obviously, the concept requires (1) knowledge what fits you best/works for you (2) lots of clothes that vary subtly (3) confidence to be understated enough and not worry about impressing anyone (except those who know...)
Done!

This is so awful.

I wear the same thing every day. All I change is my underwear, socks, and tshirt.

Above that I wear chucks, my apcs (which have never been washed) and a American apparel flex fleece zip hoodie.


To avoid smelling bad, try to take your pants and shoes off often.

I did this for ten years plus

I wore a white T shirt w/ jeans and skate shoes. (before skate shoes were cool)

It was easy doing laundry. All whites.

I rotated two pairs of jeans, and wore each pair for weeks at a time.

No need to wonder: What am I going to wear today?

Also, I was on a lot of drugs. A whole lot of drugs.

Originally, I started because I would have sweat stains in high school under my pits, (i am a profuse sweater) and white was the only color that didn't show it. (Gray was the worst)

It was kinda Fonzy like after a while.

People still ask me - "Where's the white shirt, man?"

It really brings me back to when I was cool. or thought I was cool. Too cool for school.


-I bet most people do this in some form or fashion. find a sportcoat/pants/shirt brand or style that fits really really well, and get fifteen of them in all different variations.

People don't really notice if you wear them well. They only notice that your always well dressed.

wmmk, consider this the Styleforum version of "scared straight" or when they show you pictures of meth addicts to keep you off drugs in health class.

I mean, especially if you're still in high school. I (and your peers) find it really weird when people wear the same thing everyday, besides jeans.
