I do both
It’s up to the person, their choice of style. Some like to repair their clothes and wear them; some don’t like to repair and purchase new; some also get it altered. So it’s up to the person, what they want and the event.
It was better earlier, the quality nowadays is not that good.
Nowadays people go for readymade clothes
Fitting, zippers, altering etc.
So now people don’t wear them for a long period. Earlier, people used to wear them for a long time, and they would last long as well. Now people wear it and leave it, then get a new one made and wear that.
