I think you answered yourself perfectly.
Most things are not used. Sailors seem to wear with pride a shirt or shorts with an oil or rust stain. We actually have an iron on board, but it only appears if my work clothes need to appear.
You can often 'spot the yachty' prowling the markets by their clothes and hatwear, unshaven, suntanned and happy!!
