First it is crucial to understand the concept of comparative advantage which is "The person or country that produces a good with a smaller quantity of inputs, or that produces more output per unit of input, is said to have an absolute advantage in producing that good”. To illustrate the concept of comparative advantage requires at least two goods and at least two places where each good could be produced with scarce resources in each place. The example drawn here is from Ehrenberg and Smith (1997), page 136. Suppose the two goods are food and clothing, and that "the price of food within the United States is 0.50 units of clothing and the price of clothing is 2 units of food. [Suppose also

Dressing and clothing are some of the most important factors that define individual personality and self-identity. The choice of dressing defines an individual’s personal preference, which is important in strengthening their belief in what they are and stand for in life. By implementing a common dress code, students’ personality and self-identity is taken away thus creating a robot-like environment where students hide their true self in adhering to the prescribed dress code (Mayer, 2014).

environmental benefit from reuse is substantial since it reduces production of new textile which, among other environmental effects, lowers the global warming potential by about 15 kg of CO2-equivalents per kg of textile (Ljunggren Söderman et al 2011, Sundqvist & Palm 2010).
The amount of clothes and home textiles that are informally reused is very hard to estimate. It can be considered common practice with baby clothing since these are rarely worn out before the baby has outgrown them. Parents use the same baby clothes for all their children and often also share baby clothes among friends. Semi-formal reuse is a multimillion business for websites like Ebay and Blocket. According to
