Right now, I own one pair of trousers. All the others I had tailor made have worn out or torn or something like that. So, I have one single pair to my name. How many pairs do you think a man should own ?

Definitely more than one pair. I think that the minimum is to have one pair for anything formal and two pairs for work or casual wear. what id you tore your one pair of pants? Then what would you do? Work out how you can the money to buy at least one more pair of pants. BTW what do yoku do when this pair is being cleaned or washed? what do you do?

You seem to ask all the right questions. When I wash this one pants I have I hang it up overnight and put it on the next morning. Its usually " mostly " dry, if you can call it that but the bits of wet parts soon dry up while you are wearing it. And, yes, I have a plan. I save 7 dollars TT a day until monthend and then I can afford to put up for a tailor made pair of trousers. Right now I have an envelope with the first 7 dollars I put in on Sunday, yesterday. Thanks again. You're still making me smile.

Hi Bluepacth, One pair of pant is really not enough for a man. As for my husband,he has 7 pairs of jeans and 4 pairs of trousers in his cabinet. It is more than enought as he can always change his pants regularly. I understand some people will still wear the same pant for the nextday without washing it. But for me, once I have wear out the pant, I need to get it wash before I can wear it again. Therefore, from my point of view, a man at least must have 3 sets of pants in the cabinet for exchanging.

I have never thought about that. How much laundry do you like to do?

I don't think we should own that many. I mean if you care about what other people think than you would have alot of pant's. I myself don't care what people think, so I don't have much pants. My mom think's we don't need that much clothes. My sister obviously is a brat she has way more pant's than me.

a man should keep less trousers and more shirts/T-shirts. The no of trousers should be divided into for party wear, home wear etc.

I think you should own at least three of four pair..maybe two casual and two dress-up. Oh..and plenty of shirts.
