Question Any Favorite Old Clothes

As I was ironing my very favorite old flannel shirt this morning, I was wondering if you have some favorite old clothes you just can't get rid of? I have had this shirt for at least 20 years and I bought it at a used clothing store. It is such a soft flannel and I love the color, its a soft pastel blue and white check.

I can get into the tops but for some reason I can't get into the bottoms.

A pair of my trousers are about 15 years old. When I wore them the other day part of the zip pull just sheared off. I'm having the zip replaced as I really like those trousers.

I have a leather waist coat that`s never off my back (during waking hours), it`s had the lining replaced twice the pockets (also leather inside) once, and it`s Still as good as ever :)

I`ll be Buried in the thing!

Oh don't get me started! I keep my stuff so long I'm now Retro and in style again! For me its a couple of shirts that were my Dad's I just can't give up. And I have a couple of sweatshirts that are so well broken in I could never give them up. Sadly, my t shirts don't seem to stick around. If they get holes in them my DH likes to stick his fingers in them and make the holes REALLY big then give me that innocent "OOPS!" look. Sigh.

I resemble that remark.

I have a bunch of T-shirts purchased at rock concerts over thirty years ago that I wish would still fit.

I “Had” a most favorite sport coat that was velour type of material. It was multi colored patchwork style design but not madras.

The family was gathered to celebrate BIL’s 60th birthday and old pictures were put into DVD and viewed on the TV. The room erupted in laughter when pictures of Uncle George in his ‘coat of many colors” flashed on the screen. I thought I was pretty cool and even amid the laughter I admitted to loving that coat.

I keep most non-work clothes until they crumble in pieces around me when I'm getting dressed.

A beloved soft denim shirt that my dad called my Southern Christian Leadership Conference shirt eventually went by the wayside sorely lamented.

Also love bib overalls and wear them to tatters.

I have t-shirts (concert and otherwise) that are older than some college graduates.

Have been this way since I was a kid, when I wore tennis shoes (that's what they were called before Reeboks came into being) that were held together by the laces.

Then there's all that stuff that "I'm going to fit into again"............

Miss Mud I love my "over-halls" or sometimes I refer to them as my "over-bottoms" The more holes the betta! Comfortable they are!
