Why do the Characters Wear or Repeat their Wardrobe so Often?

(How he always wears a striped shirt like an adult)
If we look back at the earlier The Big Bang Theory, we can see that most of the character wears the same clothes very often and the same thing can be seen in the Young Sheldon series.
The main reasons for the repeating wardrobe could be the following:
#For Maintaining the Dress Code with the Time and Setting of the Show
As the show is taken place in the 80s and 90s it’s obvious for the setting to be of that time and not to make it look too fancy which would look surreal for that time. We can see the example of how Mary wears her braided straw belt, then the polka dot top and the blue overall worn by Missy are very normal for that time and it’s common for every individual.
The show has done a good job of properly maintaining the setting in according to the atmosphere of the series.
#According to the Family’s Financial Situation
The Cooper family is a normal middle-class family who wouldn’t go for frilly and grand clothing every day. We know how a middle-class family really looks like we don’t always go and wear new clothes every day.
Do we? so it is normal for the character to be seen wearing and repeating their wardrobe. What wouldn’t have been normal is if they have worn something fancy every day that would ruin the whole show.
#Clothing According to the Characters
The clothes the characters wear in the series also say a lot about their personality and behaviors, that really is a great idea to present each character in accordance with their clothing.
We can see young Sheldon who admires and is inspired by Professor Proton and other famous physicists like Einstein and Hawking not only in his career perspective but in his clothing sense too.
In the series, we can see him wearing bowties, a striped shirt, pants, and shoes like a complete grown-up gentleman. It’s cause he thinks, as he is going to college he is an adult and a proper intellect should dress just like this. Young Sheldon’s wardrobe is mostly filled with this kind of clothing that tells us much about him.
