15 shirts? 15?
Man alive! This must end! It must end now.
Once a chap has five plain white and five decent subtle blues, one needs some decent stripes, a few good checks and then some other simple colours. You’re going to need at least three pink (Not Pink, though. Quality has gone) and might I suggest something as bold as a yellow?
Either way, fifteen is nowhere near enough.Posted 3 years agobatfinkMember
I have about 3 weeks of TM Lewin double-cuffers, and laundrette just around the corner who washes and irons them for about 1.50 a time….. haven’t plugged in the iron for years now.
Unfortunately I’ve just taken delivery of my first tailored shirt (for my wedding)…. it’s awesome. This is going to get expensive.
I think the part of me that’s still a 8 year old boy (ie 99%) always wants N+1 penknives, torches, keyrings, stuff like that – good job they are cheaper than tailored shirtsPosted 3 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
My shirt collection was created due to lots of travelling and dodgy washing machines. At times I was known to go straight from the office on a Monday night and buy 4 shirts…
A lot are coming to the point of replacement but thankfully my office days are limited.Posted 3 years agoNobbySubscriber
You can never have too many work shirts.
This has come up previously so I pointed out to Mrs Nobby that the number of shirts made no difference to the washing/ironing volume – that was only affected by the number of days actually ‘at work’.
By having a plentiful supply my need to go shopping is greatly reduced leading to a reduction in fuel costs (and the impact on the environment) and I am less likely to end up inside for beating any of the
living brain-deadpeople that tend to frequent shopping centres, to death, with their own shoes.
Strangely, it was the latter argument that won the day :-/Posted 3 years ago_tom_Member
Guitars, although my collection has been at 2 electrics, one acoustic and one bass for ages since I find I always go for the same kinda sound anyway! Wouldn’t mind a tele though..
Why does anyone need that many shirts though? I guess it makes sense if you have that sort of job but still 50 seems a bit much. I have 5 I think with only one being an actual “smart” shirt.Posted 3 years agoJEngledowMember
I don’t see the point in having any more than 10 or so shirts or T-shirts (excluding specific dress shirts, biking tops etc) as I find myself going back to ‘favorites’ every time they magically reappear in the wardrobe. I’d have to buy a much larger washing basket to ever get down to the 50th shirt!!Posted 3 years ago
