I wear the same thing pretty much everyday. Same pair of jeans, same shoes, and same oversized jacket. The only thing I switch out are undergarments and a different color tank top everyday. Every so often I'll wear something different, especially if formal attire is required, but most of the time it's the same old thing. It's what I'm most comfortable in.

My question is...how much do you think people take notice, like at school? I for sure don't remember what they're wearing, but then again, they change outfits everyday. I'm sure I'd notice if they wore the same thing all the time. Am I isolating myself by doing this? Should I make more of an effort to fit in or just be myself?

Are you currently attending high school or college?Since I'm currently attending college and I'm a part time student.I wear the same clothes for 2 days for the most part.I wear the same jeans for a week since I have a few pairs of jeans.

As for how much people would take notice I think that would depend if like your a part time college student and attend like this govt class on Mondays/Weds/Fridays then they wouldn't take much notice.

I'm in college full-time, Monday-Friday... However, my classes alternate: MWF and TR.

I don't wear exactly the same thing every day.

I do buy several of the same type of t-shirts, the same types of pants, and the same types of socks, so someone else might think that I'm wearing the same clothes every day but I'm not.

When I was in middle school and high school people would comment on it, but they don't generally comment now.

But now I get the same type of shirt in two different colors and alternate colors. Actually I have very very many of the exact same type of shirt in two different colors.

If you are in college and people only see you on alternating days it may be more difficult for them to notice that you're wearing the same clothes. If you wore a different shirt on Tuesday and Wednesday(or Wednesday and Thursday) it would make it even less likely for them to think you were wearing the same clothes.

I wear the same stuff pretty much every day, for up to a week. The same leggings, top and hoodie...it's kind of scampy, but at the same time it's like 'hey, there's my outfit sorted for the week', :D .

I ain't dirty though, I shower every day, so maybe that's why I don't bother with my clothes - as long as I'm clean, nothing else matters :P

I wear pretty much to same thing every day, they only time I switch to something different is if want I normally wear gets overly dirty...

I wear the same shorts, shirt, hoodie and shoes everyday.

People notice, but I don't really care... if they don't like that I'm wearing to same shirt as last time they saw me that's their problem, not mine.

I have a few identical pairs of jeans and a few different shirts, so I rotate between these all the time. I come off as wearing very similar outfits every day but have some level of plausible deniability.

It's very easy for me to fall back on wearing the same clothes every day, however. I have to push a bit to not go there (and I don't like going there).

I do bathe regularly, at least.

I'm like others who don't wear the same clothes but have a wardrobe of similar looking clothes. I only wear the same shirt for a day then it's in the washing pile. I might not wash jeans until after a week. They can get a bit loose and need to be tightened up.
I'm trying to get a new style but it just doesn't feel right. Clothes really have to be like a part of my skin. They have to feel that comfortable.

I wear the same things for two to three days in a row and than I wear something else, unless I dress up. I have to do my own laundry living on my own and it costs money to do laundry where I live.

I wear the same things for days on end (excluding underwear), until they really do need to be put in the laundry.

I have a large wardrobe full of clothes but probably only wear about 3-4 of the outfits in it on a rotational basis.

I'm terrible about hygiene, but when I'm employed I change clothing everyday so that nobody notices. When I am unemployed (which I am now) I can go days without leaving the house, so sometimes I can go up to a week without changing clothing. I wash up so that it doesn't get to a point where I smell, just in case somebody visits, but alot of times I can't find the motivation to change if I have nothing to do.

If you're in college it's likely no one notices or cares.

i only have a few sets of pants and a few sets of shirts/t-shirts i wear.
i have loads of other clothes but i stick to the same basic 12 piece regiment.
i always have a very hard time feeling comfortable in new clothes, i dont know how to react to them.
