There is a reason you are reluctant to throw your favorite T-shirts, jeans, and sweater away. That’s because these pieces of clothes are versatile and timeless, especially if there are no apparent inscriptions on them. However, every cloth has its expiry date. You shouldn’t have to wait for people to start using your clothes to describe you before changing them.
Read this article as we show you the right time to do some decluttering in your wardrobe.
The end of your jeans depends on how often you wear and wash them. When your jeans start to fade, crotch or no longer fit you, it is time to discard them.
T-shirts are a staple element in every man’s wardrobe, so it is understandable why you may not want to throw them away. However, once your shirts start to fade or lose their color, it is time to change them. Besides, most T-shirts have a life span of six months to a year.
Once your shoes start slipping out or showing some tears in the heels or outsoles, you should change them as soon as possible.
Since you don’t wear your sweaters except in the particular season, they should last for at least three years before showing signs of tear. Another tear sign you should look out for is when the wool starts sprouting out.
To maintain hygiene, you should change your undies once every six months or a year. Although your underwear can last up to 3 - 7 years depending on the brand, changing them once a year to avoid build-up of infections.
