      The title is pretty self explanatory. I wear them until they're dirty, then I wash them. If that's two days, fine, if it's a week, that's also fine.

      If they're dirty or they smell, I wash them.

      Poll is faulty. Days don't matter, it should be "times worn" I have a pair of jeans in the drawer I haven't worn since winter, and that's a lot of days.

      Where is the option for 30+ days? Some of us are being discriminated against. I have filed a complaint with the appropriate department.

      Normally wear them all week and then wash on the weekend. Sometimes they get washed earlier but not often.

      If I wear them for 8 hours during a day or more then I wash them.

      IF I only were them for a couple hours then they probably will be used again before washing.

      Same goes for shorts. I own a washing machine, dryer, & detergent and use them.

      I was pigpen as a child and refuse to be a grubby adult.

      Pretty sure we've had this discussion before.

      I kind of lose track. I usually wear 2-3 pairs a week just so people don't think I'm wearing old dirty jeans all the time. But then I rotate through them a couple times and do laundry every 2 - 3 weeks. So it probably is three days at minimum to maybe five or six maximum. My work is pretty clean though. Shirts I typically wear twice unless I sweat.

      If I walk a muddy jobsite (not uncommon) then I typically get mud splashes from my boots and they will go in the wash that day. If I'm in the office, then as I said before, they are still clean when I take them off so I wear them again the next day...

      Belt is still on the pants... wear them again

      Lol probably going to get the hard WTF on this, but I wear untreated Japanese denim (selvedge) so they are very stiff when you get them, and the first wash should be as long as possible, then usually a few months between, but still depends on wear amount.

      My current pair of PBJs are 1.5 years old and have not yet been washed, although with HK weather they only get worn less than half the year

      Washing jeans too much is a big part of how they wear out.
