I bought a couple from costco but they were huge as in extremely baggy. It gave me the look I affectionately call the "trash bag" look in the office. I see mostly on the older guys

Basically it depends on season we are wearing the shirt at single time in summer but if i wear in winter then i can wear it 2-3 times before washing it.

Plus all that washing is a lot of wear, and nice shirts aren't that cheap.
It's about ring around the collar. My husband will frequently wear a dress shirt out to dinner for a few hours, then hang it back in the closet. More than once, I have gone to get a shirt for him out of the closet, and there is a slight trace of soil around the neck, even though he's pretty scrupulous about hygiene.

Depends, in the winter months, yeah you can get away with 3+ days, but in the summer months, no way, you will resemble pig pen from the peanuts cartoon

Washing your clothes too often can wear them out quickly, but washing them rarely just gets you dirty clothes. So I wear clothes only once and then wash them.

It depends on the interval of time and weather or not I spill food on the with the odds being I will.

If it's a whole day, it's a one shot deal. If it's 2 hours, it could go 2x

I would agree with this, if only for a couple hours, then I will wear it twice, but if all day, goes to the laundry.

Depends on how much you sweat, if it gets a stain obviously, and whether you wear it for work or at a club. I can wear them for 2-3 days.

If i sweat like a pig that day then it will be only once before i wash it again. Otherwise, usually 2-3 days with an t-shirt underneath.
