For a male perspective -

- when buying a suit (not so much anymore) I get 2 pants for every jacket

- I will buy several of the same kind of Charles Tyrwhitt dress shirt

- Costco has a good deal on Lucky Jeans that fit me well, so I bought several pairs.

YES.

I inherited it from my father. If I see something I like I cannot choose just one color. To complete the purchase I must own said item in all colors appealing to me.

i have started doing it more and more often, because when i go back to get something i like and i can't get it i found myself wishing i had gotten more. so now if i like something, then right away i buy a bunch. there is a top that i buy ten at a time. I figure if a man can have a closet full of white shirts or blue shirts, then I can have a closet of 30 pink shirts all the same.

a pair of boots i bought 3 of. a dress i like i got the same dress in 4 different colors, and 3 of each. if i really like something i will keep one or two in "good shape" for work, and one or two to wear often at home and they get a little more worn.

More recently I have found a particular style of sketchers sandals. Wearing them daily They wear out very quickly.

Pro-tip about shoe sizing- if you have odd foot specific issues (wide width, narrow arch, etc.) get sized at a boutique shoe store. It'll help you forever after that.

Shoe size can fluctuate over the average person's lifetime due to weight gain, illness or temporary fluid retention.

Just saying. My thought is, it's better to have a few nice pairs of shoes that fit perfectly than a closet full of shoes you never wear anymore.

Sometimes the color of clothing bought online and seen in person varies more than I’d think. At times order the next closest color if the original color isn’t as I expected.
At other times I like a light color and dark color variations of the same shirt for contrast, as seen below:

I don't wear a lot of pink....so I could never see the reason for 30 pink shirts. If you have to buy multiples tho........why not get it in different colors? I dunno what your man's closet has to do with what you buy for yourself.

I live in shorts & either tank tops or camis 8 months out of the year. At one time J.C. Penny's had a great color selection of these camis and I had probably 10 of them. Now they are only carrying the basic colors. I ordered some online from Old Navy that were supposed to be petite but they sent me regular and they are too large. Unfortunately many stores don't sell petites in their brick & mortar stores. Same thing for my son who has to buy tall shirts because regular sizes are always too short in length and in the arms.

Several years ago Sam's Club had pocket T-shirts for $6. I bought a couple of dozen and now have enough T-shirts to last me the rest of my life and then are a lot more expensive these days.


When I find walking shoes on sale for under $20 I buy a couple of pair. When they are $15 I buy 3 pair.

I bought 2 pairs of cheap trail runners at Costco for like $12 each. While they're not up to hiking (some of the reviews expected them to be the same as $200 hiking boots) they're great for tooling around the house.

While everyone here probably knows I wear a lot of pink (especially Fairy Tale pink), I have a few of the same shirts in other colors too, particularly performance pique polos and interlock polos. I have a few non-pink casual button-down shirts as well, as well as some non-pink pullover fleeces.
