Day 20
What is the oldest article of clothing you still wear?

Another easy one. My Thom McAn saddle shoes, bought in 1976. I still wear them to school on occasion!

I still wear a necktie I got over 20 years ago–it’s still in good condition and is in vogue. Even though I got rid of several after retirement, there’s still quite a good-sized collection in my closet!

Have you ever counted them? When I was little, I counted the ties in my dad’s closet — there were something like 70!

Garsh….I don’t know! Probably a t-shirt or something. I haven’t saved any “vintage” clothing. OK well my band coats from HS and college but I don’t wear them.

Your shoes are cool, do you wear them with a poodle skirt??? :)

Would you believe that I have a poodle skirt which was custom-made for me? HA

I still wear the Foreigner 1983 tour shirt I got from my papa.

I’d wear that today as well.

I have my grandmother’s charm bracelet, which dates back to the mid 60’s and I inherited on her passing in 1973. I don’t wear it often, but always get remarks when I do because a lot of the charms have ‘working parts’. I also have a pair of Birkenstock shoes that I wore when I worked as a nurse – those things wear like iron. I’ve been retired from nursing since 1999, that gives you some idea of how long I’ve had them. I wear them every so often as well. PK ReplyRat Fink Reply:May 22nd, 2011 at 11:06 amI… Read more »
