Some folks still don't think he's nekkid.
I can see clearly now, he’s the nekkid on the block
I have a lot of shoes and sport coats, probably cost me $5k to get comfortable again.
If I threw away all my clothes, I'd probably just buy them all back from the thrift shop. If I had to buy new shoes, total cost maybe $150. I'm retired - I don't play dress up any more.
I've been "intermittent fasting", and so far I'm down about 30 pounds, so I'm back in to a few clothes that stopped fitting a couple years ago. If this keeps up--and I hope it does--I'll have to do what you say. Casual slacks and tee-shirts, with a flannel "shirt-jacket" as needed. That's been my style lately, only just this past year since I retired. I'm looking forward to the tee-shirts' looking better; maybe some of them will even look too big for me.
Even houses and cars?
5x40 tan chinos
5x40 checked button downs
2x50 dress shirts
2x50 neck ties
3x40 blue jeans
10x10 solid color tshirts
3x15 sweat pants
3x15 gym shorts
3x10 athletic socks
5x10 trouser socks
2x75 casual shoes
2x75 dress shoes
1x500 black suit
I could comfortably do it for 2500 dollars. I don't NEED all that, but it is the core of what I use regularly.

I retired 67 days ago. Life is good. I am sitting here in Wranglers, a Duluth T Shirt and Keen low top hikers. Life is good.
T-shirts, cargo shorts, flip flops and sunglasses and I'm back to my yearly attire, oh wait can't forget my koozie,,
Funny. I’ve been thinking of taking half my closet to the thrift shop. I’m apparently really weird about clothes in that I wear the same five or six shirts til they wear out and then some. I’ve got three pair of jeans that aren’t ragged. I tend to buy only second-hand clothes, so total replacement would be a couple of C notes.
And in my closet are dress slacks and shirts that don’t get worn. I quit an administrative job in 2010, and since then, I’ve worn jacket and tie only a handful of times. I don’t dress up for work, but I’ve got a jacket and tie there for the occasions when I get called into the suits’ office for a “talk.” But I’m so off the radar that even the ritual chewing outs happen seldomly.
According to the code of my world, I’ve got to keep a dark jacket and a pair of slacks suitable to wear to a funeral. And I have to make presentations a couple of times a year. So I could make do with a couple of sports jackets, a couple pair of slacks, and a few ties.
If I toss half my closet, perhaps I’d have space for another guitar?
Works for me.
Add 5x10 hats, 1x10 sunglassses and 5x30 owling shirts and 1x5 Mississippi string ties and you would be ready for gigging!
What if someone else threw away all their clothes? Specifically, what if someone's ex-girlfriend or ex-wife threw away all of his clothes?
Way back when I co-owned an antique store, I discovered an entire, near-new, man's wardrobe in our dumpster on a Monday morning. There were no shoes or clothes that would typically be kept in a drawer, but it was almost everything else. Dress shirts, ties, belts, polos, slacks, blazers, and suits that all fit me perfectly.
Someone had a "Your **** is out of here!" moment and made it happen.
NKOTB. They should tour.
10k maybe. All the basics mentioned, plus At least two nice suits, couple tweed blazers, dressy stuff. Shawl collar tux. Another $2500 for shoes.
I'd be out 20 bucks, and blind everybody lookin at my butt
my closet is now where i have guitars hanging & the recording set up...way better use of space..
At any given time, everything I am wearing minus socks and underwear was more likely than not bought at a thrift store
Whut ... whut... whut...
Getting everything at after Christmas sales or end of season sales, at least $1000.
Timberland boots (essential), costco socks, decent boxers, a pair of black jeans and brown corduroys, a belt, some t shirts, some button down shirts, swim trunks, windbreaker, hoodie, coat, poofball hat, and a decent suit with shoes? I use even the specific stuff a couple times a year at least. A grand is conservative, at best.
Clothes are expensive. I like nice stuff that lasts, style over fashion.
If society would let me, I'd just need the boots, trunks, and a hat, not necessarily all at the same time
