How many pants and shirts do you own?

What is your pant to shirt ratio that you own and how many of each? In a post covid era, dry cleaning turnaround is 5-7 days. Gone are the 2 hour or same day dry cleaning that I am used to. 

As an analyst, what are some good brands for shoes, shirts, pants.

I own 6 Eton shirts (4 white, 2 blue) and wear them for 2-3 days (I live in a cold country and don't sweat much). We do have dry-cleaning through work, but that would require me to own more shirts (as you need shirts to wear while one batch is at the cleaners). I just wash mine at home (Eton shirts are sturdy and are washed at 60 degrees Celsius) and take an hour to iron them every other Sunday.

With that I've got 4 suit pants and 2 jackets. 

I know some people like to own 14 shirts, but I really don't see the point. My routine works fine anyways

I own 6 pairs of men's formal trousers and 12 Full Sleeves Shirts to wear to work. I also own a versatile formal blazer from Selected Homme that I wear on some office days. With these pieces I just mix and match so I have quite a few outfits to go through each month.

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.
