    Just can't have too many!

    As I watch a TV face saying "Make sure the clothes you buy can be folded flat, so they won't take up too much space when you pile them up in the closet" - I think of:

    The clothing we throw away or toss in the recycling bin used to be sent to other countries. Many of those countries are now refusing to accept the shipments.

    hmmmm - do I really need another shirt to add to the 30 I already have?

    My stuff goes from daily wear to lawn work to garage wear to rags, and by the time I get rid of it I'm not sure even the thrid world would want most of it. And I don't buy that much new each year. Fashion plate or curent trend aware, I've never been.

    Mike - same here. Only time I tried to "follow the trend" was the late 1960s, when I wore "John Lennon" style glasses. Since then I've just been going down hill.

    Mostly what I do too. Even dress shirts that get torn or too grungy end up as work shirts.

    Yes! And does a fine job of keeping the 'shine fresh while transporting it!
