Then you wouldn't feel you had to buy up everything the same & maybe you could love shopping more.
Not easy. I like a 32 inch inseam for my pants/jeans, 34 inch inseam for my jeans if I wear my ropers for that scrunched up western look.

I do it all the time. At 6’1”, if I find something that works for me, I buy multiples. Sometimes it’s of the same color, sometimes outs of differing colors.

I buy multiples with shoes and handbags as well.

Sry...are you a male or female? I dunno what ropers are....BUT jeans with a W/L measurement are super common in boutique sizes 0-4.

Underwear, socks, cheap T shirts for working out, jeans. Oh, and dress shirts.

I might buy multiples in a generic item, such as black leggings or white t-shirt. Or if I love a pair of shoes and have worn them for 2 years, I might buy a new pair if they're still in stock.

I never did this, here's why (specific to my lifestyle but a thing to consider as a money saving tactic)-

* If you wear common sizes you can always replace a favorite item. Just keep track of where you bought it.

* I try to keep my closet organized and having doubles of items just adds to clutter.

* The older you get (especially for women) your sizing can fluctuate dramatically (growth spurts, pregnancy, stress related weight gain) so having a 2nd or 3rd identical item that isn't useable anymore like the 1st item just doubles or triples wasted spending money. I mean it's a win for anyone you gift clothing to, but it's money you could have saved instead. (Same goes for shoes to extent.)

Overall throughout my life, I haven't really done this, but, I've done it a few times. The latest being w/ this top: https://www.nyandcompany.com/linen-l...-prod20060027/

I just love everything about it. The style that it's not just a plain top, the fabric's cool airiness, how it fits, & the fact that it comes in 10 colors is great! I got ALL the colors & even got a 2nd of a few colors because I know I'll wear them & in Southern CA where it's warm pretty year-round, I'll wear them often. My only concern is if they'll shrink in the dryer.
I bought 4 different V-neck tee shirts from NY & Company a few years ago. Within a few months they all developed tiny pinholes in the fabric.

But if I like something a lot, whether it be a top, shorts or shoes I will many times buy more than one.

I don't want to go way off topic but over the past 25 years I've noticed a lot of boutique brands have thinner fabric and bad quality craftmanship....I spend more per item when I clothes shop but it's to find an item that will get through a year or two of regular wear, at the very least.

There's much to be said about checking season end clearances for clothes and pants/jeans.

I buy a lot of my polos and a few of my chino shorts in different colors from different seasons (mostly spring/summer, but occasionally fall/winter and basic).
