I think ian was referring to dear wife not OP
I love having a uniform for work because I don't even have to think about what to wear. The amount that simplifies my life compared to others makes me realize how shallow people are. My girlfriend for example, will stress excessively about being seen twice in the same thing within a certain timeframe. This also applies to any picture posted to Facebook etc.. hilarious to me but I also understand and pity the constructs of society.
I buy clothes for their function and quality rather than a forced variety. I'll buy the highest quality I can find so that not only is it more enjoyable to wear but also doesn't need to be replaced as often. I don't buy or keep various versions of the same thing for the sake of not being seen in the same colour twice in a row.. We all have a preferred look and feel to our clothes so why wear something else for the sake of wearing something else..
Many highly successful people always dressed the same way
