    Re: How often do you replace you socks and underwear?

    Had to replace certain brands after a few times wearing them due to loss of comfort or elasticity.

    CK ones always last me 18-24 months.

    Re: How often do you replace you socks and underwear?

    I rarely throw away any socks or underwear of mine, it usually is the wife that does it when she cannot put up with them anymore. At that point there are usually holes in the garments already and they are really worn out. I use everything till the end.

    Re: How often do you replace you socks and underwear?

    I wear them till they need to be replaced which is usually need another 6+ pairs every few months. With all the hiking I do I go through a lot of pairs of socks quickly and I don't buy the cheap stuff either. As for garments would be a similar time frame till needing new pair. I wear boxers mostly which cost more so I like to get as much use out of all my clothing as possible.

    On the bright side, I donate clothes regularly to donation centers.
    do you have really scary OCD?

    I change every day like you should, but if you mean keeping them til you buy new pair. I replace them when they get all tear up with holes.

    Re: How often do you replace you socks and underwear?

    Socks, well they go missing anyway, so I end up buying new ones fairly often, maybe every two weeks.

    Underwear? Huh?

    Too restrictive and uncomfortable, no thanks.

    I would hope everyone here wears a new pair everyday.

    I was just bored doing my laundry so I decided to make a poll. My first one actually

    Replace wife with girlfriend and its pretty much my story.

    I think one pair of underwear I own must be like 6 years old. It's almost falling apart, but still functional.
