    dirty or smelly also.

    can sometimes be quite a few wears because of rotation of different pairs.

    i would say maybe once every week two week and a half, depending on smell, if there is anything dirty etc.

    the only thing i wash after every use is Boxerbriefs and socks, even tshirts as long as you arent sweating in them can be worn a couple of times.

    the more you wash the clothes, the faster they die.

    the other day a friend told me he washes his jeans ONCE A YEAR. he puts them in the freezer when they get funky. i think he's crazy.

    2 weeks tops for me.

    depends on their dirt/smell level.

    i've gone weeks sometimes - but if i only wear them 2-3 times for a short outing each, then i dont see the problem with that

    the guy at the Gstar store in NYC told me he never washes his jeans to keep them fresh and new.

    I wanted to puke.

    I wash them when I feel like it... usually after 5 or so uses.

    Since I'm a messy fuckhead, I would say after maybe every 2-4 times I wear them.

    Eating while walking usually does it for me.
    (mustard, tahini, tzatziki, scotch bonnet sauce, etc..)

    +2 with glychy T.
    Socks and Boxers get washed after every wear

    PLUS socks and boxers are the only things I put in the dryer, everything else gets hung up to dry

    Shirts and pants depend on how dirty they are.

    Jeans don't get good until they've been washed a few times anyway
