26 shirts?

For somebody who’s been living on a shoestring for quite some time it’s naturally interesting to compare his own experience with articles which consider what you really need (and how much you have to pay for it). I could discuss this recent one at length, agree with this, disagree with that; but what really made my jaw drop was an alleged Joseph Rowntree Foundation claim that in comparison with 10 pairs of boxer shorts or 10 pairs of socks an average single male needs “26 shirts of various types”. You what?
