Sorry about the title I couldn't think of a good one. I have wanted to ask this question for a long time but have never had the opportunity. SF has given me the opportunity.
I have a closet full of clothes, but I seem to wear the same thing 90% of the time. Example I have 6 pairs of raw jeans that all fit (APC NS, (2) Cheap Mondays, Hickey, BR, and Topman Premium), but I wear the topman jeans($20 jeans) more than all the other jeans combined. When I wear other jeans, the whole day I think I should have worn the Topman jeans. This even effects my underwear choices I have about 14 pairs of underwear but I only feel comfortable in about 3 of them, so I like to do washing once a week to give me my nice undies. This also effects the way I buy things. Everytime I go into a new store the first thing I look at is the polo shirts despite the fact that I have 8 polo shirts 6 of them I have worn less than 3 times. On gilt today I spent so long looking for some nice polo shirts that everything else I wanted sold out. I was wondering if this happens to you as well. Am I crazy or is this normal?

Are you absolutely positive the clothing you don't wear looks good on you or suits your style? I guess only WAYWT can answer this...

I'm that way with jeans/pants in general, but nothing else, and differently. Whenever I get a new pair of jeans or anything like that, I tend to forget that my old jeans exist. Or, like, I recently got J Crew flannel lined jeans (they are absurdly comfortable and warm, perfect for the winter, and I get complimented on them much more than I should when I wear them), but even though it's like 18 degrees outside, I wear my New Standards. And now I'm getting a pair of AW Cougars, and I'm worried I'm gonna stop wearing my NS.

Aside from that, sometimes I have urges to wear the same shirts over and over but I resist and do alright.

Perhaps you are OCD, you are certainly a bit bizarre, but as long as it doesn't hinder your life/personal expression, I wouldn't worry.

Let's say you owned three cars - a rusty Tercel, a 1988 Ford Ranger, and a Viper, Royce, whatever you're into. Whenever you drive the Tercel or Ranger, you're going to regret it. You need to upgrade your wardrobe so that you have a larger range of garments of equal quality and stylishness.
