Can you not just use brukar or oftast exclusively?

Just brukar would be something like he tends to wear green clothes whereas brukar oftast would be more towards most of the times, he tends to wear green clothes. I’d say they’re very similar in meaning and you could as well just use either in my opinion.

So, you don't have to use both?

I’d say the oftast intensifies the brukar slightly.

Why is it "brukar oftast" and not "brukar ofta". Thanks in advance.

Can you not say "He usually wears green clothes most often"?

That statement is doubled, and wouldn't be used in most contexts. You could say either He usually wears green clothes or He wears green clothes most often.
