Well, he doesn't have to, given teh way the TARDIS magically creates a duplicate of his costume whenever he loses it - chewck out, in particular, the number of times Hartnell changes into local clothes (usually in the historicals) and has no opportunity to recover his jacket, yet somehow gets it back by the console room lead-in to the next story.
