    What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    I figured the range of answers for this could be interesting given the age demographic in here. You can include something that you still wear or just something you have (i.e. granfather's tie, old wedding dress that's been passed down, etc.)

    I have a pair of ugly plaid shorts that were once really ugly plaid pants back in '86. I cut them off and kept them to play sand volleyball back when there were sand courts north of Beyer. I still wear them, too. Damn comfy.

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    I am 24 and still wear some old t-shirts that go back to Jr. High. They are mostly basketball warm-up shirts that we thought were really cool at the time, but are dang ugly looking back at them now. Which is half the reason I wear them.

    A pair of TKD pants I've had for 18 years. Really comfy.

    I'm sure I have jeans that are 20 years old. I keep telling myself someday I'll be slim enough to wear them again.

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    haven't worn it in a while (maybe a year), but I have a shirt that I stole from my mom that I used to wear all the time. She got it in Australia in the mid-80s. It's held up better in nearly 30 years than most shirts I've bought from department stores in the last 5.

    My family has the wedding dress that my great-great-grandma wore and then the baptismal gown from when her son (my great-grandfather) was baptized. The waist on the dress is less than 20 inches. It's insanely tiny.

    Do have a 29 year-old championship t-shirt from little league (majors) baseball. Hasn't fit for a long time but I have kept it

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    The oldest piece of clothing I own was my dad's baseball tshirt from high school from 1962. I still wear it.

    The oldest piece of clothing that was purchased for me is my cub scout uniform from around 1990 that's hanging in my closet.

ID:	27399 Iron Kids Bread hat, got one for making enough soccer balls in the holes blow up thinger when I was 8, mine is a lot more worn and faded. Haven't worn it for quite a while but it's probably the only thing that would still fit from being that young and I never wanted to get rid of it.

    My dad sponsored a hockey team in Minneapolis back in the early 90's, so I have two jerseys from that.

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    I have a lot of old Army shirts from various places that go back to the mid 90's.

    The oldest ting I still wear is a late 90's early 2000's navy blue shirt with a giant walking cy on the front. Was from that period when we incorporated the blue into our color scheme. I don't know exactly what it is made out of, but the color has not faded, it somehow still fits(never shrunk) and has managed to not get holes from the wash/daily wear. I wish all of my t-s were this durable. Probably the shirt with the most miles.

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    I have some Tailgate T shirts that are 15-20 years old. They use to make high quality/thick t-shirts that would last a long time. Now they are pretty much junk.

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    I have (and still occasionally wear) an old stained, dusty western hat (a Stetson) that I bought when I first started my veterinary career back in 1975, in Montana. It may not be very pretty; but, it has a lot of character

    Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    I wore one of my dad's football cut offs from the early 80's for my senior year of football in 2011. I still have it but I don't wear it anymore.
