About 3 times, with undershirts. Maybe 2 times during warmer days and i have to wear a suit and tie which stains the collar quicker.

A different outfit daily, fresh from being washed, dried and put away.
A clean set of pajamas daily.

I never wear anything twice, even if I just put on a shirt to go to the store and back, I toss it in the laundry. Might be overkill, but I just feel better in very clean clothes.

I always wear a tank top under my sweaters. If I worn it all day then off to the hamper it goes. If its something I wore only a few hours then wear it again at another time. It makes the clothes last longer. I don't sweat that much so it works out. The tanks that I wear underneath only gets worn once then thrown in the laundry basket

Mine go to the drycleaners after a single wearing. If you like brooks brothers shirts look at Charles tyrwhitt ctshirts.com they will go on sale in the 30-40 dollar range and offer slim and extra slimy fit

I used to work at a dry cleaner's and you could really tell who wore their shirts for a few days between cleanings, especially in the summer. Some people would get heavy starch so the shirts wouldn't wrinkle and then they'd wear them a few days, but the collars get oily and stinky.

And shirts for golf...those need to be cleaned after one use, ugh!

My husband is a "one and done" guy - it would never occur to him to wear a dress shirt more than once. I'm the same way -- but there are some tops -- the silk ones, or the linen ones -- that I try to stretch between washings. I can get away with that in the winter, but not the summer.

I hope this is a typo, but if not, it's actually pretty funny.

I don't allow any more than five concentric sweat rings under the armpits - then they need to be cleaned.

For what it's worth, I can't stand when men don't wear undershirts under their dress shirts. You can see the skin tone under the light shirts and it's just gross.
