We all do it: we buy clothes we never wear and just let them molder away in our man-drobe as we repetitively use our favorite pieces. Don't be embarrassed about it, though. Science has got you covered!

According to a study conducted by Thread.com, a virtual stylist service, men only wear 13-percent of their clothes and leave 87-percent on the hangers. Not only that, but men actually spend more money than women do on all of the items they're not wearing.
One theory behind all of the inefficient shopping is that our other half pushes us into buying things we actually don't like. Another non-sexist theory is that "most guys feel so attached to a handful of items that they will be worn until they are falling apart." In other words, it's the #hardtoletgo effect.
"A lot of men prioritize comfort and the security of knowing that items have been worn-in, rather than wearing new clothes that could be more flattering," Thread's spokesman added.
We don't know about you guys but these theories, at the very least, have a point. We also would like to suggest a theory ourselves: the "takaw tingin" syndrome which basically means we think we like a particular clothing item at first glance and then quickly realize we really don't (or that we are find it hard to search for items we can pair with it).
