I have six pairs of shorts and a pair of jeans, each going into the dirty clothes basket after four wears.
I wear two pairs of boxers with each pair of shorts and jeans, so boxers (and socks) go in the basket after two wears.
I put shirts in the basket after two wears, and hoodies and sweaters after four, since I wear undershirts with them.
I wash all my clothes every four weeks.

We have 5 people in this house, including 2 young athletes and another younger soon-to-be-athlete... and one of those weird-o eco-friendly front-loader washers. (California drought, y'all.)
So... our washer is ALWAYS running.
Four of us -- everyone except the 5-year-old -- are competent, so, literally, the washing just "gets did". It just happens.
We don't use the dryer nearly as much, though. Basically nothing goes through there except underwear. We hang everything else so that it doesn't fade, shrink, rip, or deteriorate in whatever other way.
Oh, and, nice denim? NEVER wash it. Never ever ever.
A true fashionista puts her denim in the freezer.
Yes, I'm serious -- that's how you clean "nice" denim that's just been subjected to normal wear. I shit you not. Google it.0
