freitasm: I wear an Icebreaker merino top under my shirts (unless it's summer). I get those washed once every couple of days as they don't seem to smell that bad. The shirts though are washed every day - cotton is not as good as wool for smells. 

And please do not use artificial fibres. They don't help with evaporating sweat. It's cotton or cotton.




I bought a few under shirts from the warehouse that are specifically designed to wick sweat away and evaporate and dry quickly they seem to work very well and only cost me $9.95 each and no they are not cotton

Nicer shirt for odd time wear. Diff to normal ones. It is a blue one but very fine white fabric stripes Stoll blue but gives a unique look and a sheen look. Fabric bit thicker as well. Armani. Blends into a formal n semi formal use too. The weekend got 2 avg saville rows didnt splash but the Hugo Boss shirts were nice. Hallenstein suit or better ones. ... or a nicer mobile phone to simply call, msg or read a webpage.

Wash after every day but I am the same and have a couple of matching shirts, so in total have about 5 designs.

In the summer normally after every wear..

Most of the time every day, if it has been cold then sometimes I get away with wearing a shirt one day, leaving it for a few days and wearing it again.
I have 6 shirts in rotation, need another couple as two should be retired

I don't see the need to wash a work shirt after every use.  I tend to use a shirt a couple times before I wash it, unless of course I've spilled something or been unusually active.  Never had a problem or been approached by colleagues re: body odour.  I just avoid wearing the same shirt 2 days in a row as this seems to be socially frowned upon more so than than for any practical reason.

I'm the same I can wear twice during winter, summer a bit different. I wonder if all these clean people wash their trousers every day?

I believe shirts are like underpants. They should be washed after use clean or otherwise.

Besides, it gives my wife something to do :-)

Wash after 1 use too. Not because they are smelly, but because they look scruffy by the end of the day. I have around 10 shirts that I rotate through so they last me years. Time for a new batch when I go to England later this year me thinks!!




Procrastination eventually pays off.
