I care less about clothes sometimes, too. Been in a phase of not caring nearly as much, lately. I will say that having a casual wardrobe I feel good about is a lot more useful for me than having a tailored wardrobe I feel good about, if that scans. Gay Talese once wrote something about the importance of having clothes you can wear to the dentist -- or any time when you just don't want to get dressed. Now, for Talese, that was like a Brioni sport coat and an Hermes tie, but I put the same idea in practice with a couple pairs of more casual shoes, ride-or-die jeans, and a selection of sweaters.
Also, I mean, isn't the point of scrubs that they're kept clean in the hospital? The closest I come to an operating room is spilling fake blood, so I really don't know.
I'm never in the sterile zone so it doesn't really matter.
That said, I've started becoming a much bigger fan of the unstructured stuff.
It's also a question of dollars since I spent a ton of money this pay check on travel expenses for interviews. Priorities and all. I have 6 med school interviews lined up. I should keep track of expenses better, but it's going to be costly.
