I believe this to be true. Women I know will spend hours swiping through new clothing hanging on a rack in a boutique or a department store and come away empty-handed. However, they’ll become absolutely giddy when a good friend bequeaths them a plastic bag stuffed with old tops. There’s just something about “pre-approved” apparel. Men do not do this so much. Personally, most of my clothing is in one of three states: 1) everyday clothing, well-worn and comfortable, 2) work clothing, truly well-worn and comfortable duds that I am discouraged from wearing in public, sort of wearable rags, 3) true rags, old clothing torn into useful strips (no longer actually worn). And no guy is about to give away a bag of good rags, not even to his best buddy.
