I have a 22 year old shirt

I wore a shirt today. Itís nothing fancy, just a three button shirt. Ds told me that I have that shirt for as long as he could remember. Heís right. The funny thing is I remember buying it. I bought it at Caldorís the year he was born. Itís 22 years old and still in pretty good shape. I donít wear it too often so maybe thatís why itís still around. Itís a good seasonal transition shirt that I wear in the spring and fall. I am pretty amazed itís that old.

My h has many articles of clothing more than 30 years old! He keeps his clothes in pristine condition.

I have a few things in the 25ish year range.

Now you've made me curious to see what my oldest, still worn item is.

Nice! Good quality and a style that stands the test of time. Perfect combo.

I have two t-shirts, one from 1995 and one from 1996! Both were in adult sizes because that was all that was available. I also have t-shirts from high school still. I was in high school from 2003-2007.

I love "This Shirt" by MCC!

I have several items of clothing that are older, up to 30 years old. The oldest thing I wear in regular rotation is a flannel shirt I bought in 1993, I think. But I have several other things that are older and get occasional use.

Amiga has me beat, though! Nothing I wore in 1973 would come close to fitting me these days (I was a toddler).

Old shirts

I have an old French terrycloth oversized shirt from Nordstrom that is probably 28-29 years old. I remember buying several items when my DD was 1 or 2. It has a 3/4 zipper and is perfect for lazy Sundays.

One was a t shirt my drum and bugle corps wore that had our logo on it. The other was a softball team shirt. They fit my 11 year old granddaughter. I was a very tiny high schooler. 1973

My dad had a pair of wingtips he bought before I was born in 1970. We gave them to Goodwill when he passed away in 2009, and they were still in good shape.

I have an LLBean fleece pullover that is over 25 years old and I still wear it around the house or when I run errands. Also another LL Bean itemó a mountain anorak that is probably about that old, too. It still looks like new. I guess nylon doesnít fade much

My grandma had a shirt she wore on vacation, and we have photos spanning decades of her in that shirt.

I donít think I have anything 20 years old anymore unless you count turning them into a quilt as still having them.

I'm jealous of you all that are wearing old clothes. Sadly, my size does not allow me to wear anything old. I have kept a coat my grandmom wore for many years, but it hangs in my closet. I doubt I'll ever be able to wear it.
