According to a new study by the University of Missouri, the answer is: both.
The study, which used data from the National Association of Manufacturers, found that, as of last year, the average American household had approximately $3,300 worth of suede jackets, $2,900 worth of jeans, and $3.40 worth of t-shirts in their closets.
Meanwhile, a third of the country had approximately a quarter of their households own a pair of suedes.
The study found that a total of 19% of Americans owned more than one pair of jeans in their closet, and 28% owned more then one pair.
The same percentage owned more t-shirt’s than pants.
“The fact that we have these high levels of spending on clothing shows the tremendous importance that we place on these products, and that this trend will continue as the population ages,” said Dr. Christopher McLean, a professor of medicine at the University Health Network in Kansas City.
Although the study found a link between suits and the purchase of suedez-style clothing, McLean said he was surprised that consumers were spending more on suit-related products in general.
“I think we’ve got a lot of folks who are just buying their suits,” McLean told Fox News.
According to the study, about 1 in 4 people in the United States own a suit.
According to the National Academy of Sciences, between 25% and 34% of U.S. adults own at least one suit.
The research also found that while Americans are spending more money on suits than jeans, they are spending far less on pants.
According the survey, about 13% of the population owns a pair.
“We found that people are buying suits because they’re the most comfortable, because they look good and they’re trendy,” Mclean said.
In the survey of 1,000 households, the study estimated that only about 8% of people had more than a single pair of pants.
And just 13% had a pair that they had bought from a third party, like Target or Urban Outfitters.
