Quotes: Limited Wardrobe
The shirt's based off my father's work shirts, of which I have a few. I remember vividly being a little kid and marveling at the fact my father had a closet almost full of the exact same shirt, like some cartoon character brought to life.
Randy Milholland, creator of Something Positive, on Davan's famous blue shirt.

"JN-T had viewed the previous lead actor, Tom Baker, as being out of control, and consciously went to the opposite extreme with Davison and his co-stars. This can clearly be seen in the way the main characters are dressed; the Doctor, in his clean, pressed beige outfit, stands out like a sore thumb in the company of Stien, Colonel Archer and Professor Laird, in their lived-in, functional clothing. The same can be said of his companions; Turlough, the 'sly schoolboy', has been wearing the same school uniform since 'Mawdryn Undead', and Tegan, although she had been allowed more variety in her style of dress, has always been placed in outfits intended both to highlight her character as a brash, somewhat obnoxious Australian and to, as it were, appeal to the dads... Unlike the other women in the serial— and a bit oddly for someone who spends her time either fighting or fleeing monsters— Tegan is dressed in a leather skirt, a sleeveless top, high heels and far too much makeup even for 1983. The way in which all three actors are costumed thus highlights JN-T's efforts to control, not only the characters, but also the actors themselves."

Mr. Weatherbee: Don't you have any other clothes, Jughead?
Jughead: Sure! I've got a whole closet full of them, and they all look like these!
Little Archie comic story "A Neat Story"

Luckily all your clothes look the same. Trolls think fashion is stupid.
The narrator/Karkat Vantas, Homestuck

They're my lucky pants! [...] Also, they're my only pants.
Fry, Futurama

Thank goodness he has a walk-in closet full of ten of the same suit.

Kim Possible, you are such a loser. You wear that same shirt like every day.

Before the dress code, I used to struggle to pick clothes...

Narration (after describing complete revamps of other characters): Elliot, on the other hand, is exactly the same as he was.
Elliot: What are you talking about!?! I'm wearing a white T-shirt! What more do you want?!

Hairdresser Octopus: Hey, take that stupid hat off. What does it look like in there?
PaRappa: Aaa, I'm not sure myself.

Old Chuck is pretty cool about dates. He always wears that striped shirt of his.
Peppermint Patty, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Um, this one's from someone called Kutabare Oonishi. "It looks like Gin-san is always wearing the same kimono. Does he only have one set of clothes?" Okay, here's your answer. The truth is, he's got four of the same kind of kimono. When one's in the laundry, he wears another. Huh? You want to know why he has four of the same kind? Well look, it gets too boring if the protagonist keeps changing clothes. People like Lupin are always wearing the same coat, right? Anyway, in an anime, it's too tiring to keep changing clothes, so that would be a problem. Now you, Oonishi, go stand in the hall!
Gintoki Sakata (as Ginpachi-sensei), Gintama

I need my other white shirt back anyway. This one's getting kind of smelly - and I think if I wore another color, it would just throw people.

That's me favorite shirt! ... That's me only shirt!

Lisa: Don't be so hard on yourself, Bart. It's not your fault Jessica doesn't like you.
Bart: Is it my hair? My overbite? The fact that I've worn the same clothes day in, day out for the last four years?
The Simpsons, "Bart's Girlfriend"

This uniform is the only clothing Ryuko has. And look what you've done to it. Don't you have any idea how people with only one set of clothes feel!?
Mako, Kill la Kill

Mumfie: What's going on?
Scarecrow: We've got an invitation.
