Oldest Piece of clothing you wear?


Recommended Posts

Ok to be fair, Hamlet hadn't been home for four days and had run out of clothes. 

When we said our goodbyes yesterday, I simply stared at him in horor at what he was wearing. :o

Stylistically I would tag it "mexican gangster meets  the homeless"

"I ran out of clothes Mother****er" my Mom found these"  :rotfl:

The shirt was straight out of abuelo's  70's closet. 

What is the oldest piece of clothing you still have and wear?   I have my frangipani flower beach shirt from the 80's.  Favourite :D

Do ties count? I have ties from just before 2000. Also have a leather jacket, that I wear from time to time, from around the same period. As for shirts, pants, etc older than 10 years... none fit me now! :lol3:

I have an Albert Richard leather jacket that’s pre-WW II - best guess early 30s. That would definitely be it for me (though I have a couple hats from the 50s).

I have a few ties from the 40s and 50s, thankfully I no longer have to wear a suit and tie every day. I have a 40s Homburg that I bought from a cousin’s vintage clothing stock. It is just a tad small and too round to fit me, but it fits my son perfectly.

Belgian army jacket I bought at Glastonbury in 1987 for a quid from a second hand stall as I didn't take a coat with me and got cold at night. It's from 1967 or thereabouts and I still wear it today.

I still wear T-shirt’s from 2000’s. Mostly sports related stuff. Some outdoorsy stuff from Columbia, REI from 2010’s. I feel like those items never really change other than slight modifications and advances in technology/material.

I have several tee shirts from recruit academy over 20 years ago. Yes, they still fit. And the tie that I wore to work today is at least 15 years old. I really hate buying new clothes.

After last year's fat bastard I found I could wear my suits from the early 90's. Not much call to wear suits anymore but they're there if I need them!
