According to Cadmus, how long you should keep a shirt really depends on how often you wear it. On the short side it could be six months, on the long side two to three years.
Similarly, you may ask, how long should clothes last for?
Since I don’t exactly have a ton of clothes, they all get worn very often, but they seem to last a decent amount of time anyway. I have about 9 “business casual” shirts I wear, so that’s about 40 wears per year for each. Median age of my shirts is probably about 3-4 years, many from thrift stores.
Secondly, how long can you wear a shirt before washing? Pants and sweaters are the workhorses of your wardrobe—they can stand about five wears before they need to go in the wash. T-shirts and Henleys are good for one to two wears, depending on how much you sweat.
Besides, how long do cotton shirts last?
Cotton T–shirts are generally usable until five to ten wash maximum. After five wash color may start fading especially from the accessories(collar and cuffs) area where the GSM is more than double the body. Reason heavy areas face more friction and wear tear and become faded.
How often should I replace my clothes?
- Anything white or silk: After every wear.
- Bras: After three to four wears.
- Trousers and skirts: After five to seven wears.
- Parkas and vests: Two times a season.
- Jackets and sweatshirts: After six to seven wears.
- Hats, gloves and scarves: Three to five times a season.
- Hosiery: After every wear.
