robGen saidOK, so I'm not saying you need to have a full wardrobe of workout clothes (even though I do), but do you have to wear the same exact clothes every single day? I go to this gym in Braircliff (NY) and there are at least 2 people (a man and a woman) that never wear anything different every time they're there, which is practically every day. At first I didn't pay any attention to it but after a while I began to notice it. I mean the EXACT same shirt, sweat pants, and sneakers. These people are in their 40's-50's I guess, and it's a pretty expensive club, so they have to be able to afford more than just one workout outfit, right? Oh, and they're not related at all. These are 2 totally independent people. And, I'm pretty sure there are more than just these 2 people, but they just stand out in my mind right now. So, what do you think? And, I'm not exaggerating when I say the same EXACT outfit every single time, and we're talking many, many, many months. I think the guy changed his shirt a few months ago, but not the woman.
Any thoughts or comments?
Well, some folks think that's the thing; have "workout gear" that they wash once a week. I don't subscribe to it, but, it's not uncommon. They have different sensibilities with regard to hygiene and dress.
Personally, I'm a frugal and prudent shopper. I own 8 grey shorts, all very comfy, that I got on sale at 3.99 each. I own about 10 A shirts, that I paid about $4.00 each for. I have about 11 wresting singlets that I paid $4.99 each for (an unheard of price). I have 4 red shorts, all the same. Same with my UnderArmour Cold Gear (4 blue ones), UnderArmour Heat Gear (5 white ones). and UnderArmour underwear (10 black ones, and 1 white one). It might sometimes LOOK like I'm wearing the same thing, but, I change my gear out at least every day, and sometimes twice a day if I get drenched. Just my thing. I'm proud that I spent less on a buttload of workout stuff than some guys spend on two shirts. That's part of what makes me smarter than regular people.
Howard Hughes, then, the richest man in the world, had a wardrobe of white shirts, black ties, and black pants, .... all identical...that he rotated through. Sometimes, highly organized folks keep things simple, and practical.
You should probably ponder world hunger.. LOL You might change your view as you mature and grow more practical.
