PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU JUST CAN'T PART WITH

I thought this would be a fun game as everybody I know has a favorite that is so old but they still wear it.
My favorite is a zip up hooded sweatshirt. It has "long john" lining and I bought it for my son when he was still in high school. LOL
It is so discolored from all the washing and also has bleach stains from cleaning the house in it. I wear it every day in the house, especially when the air conditioner is on.
What is so cozy that you have and are willing to admit how old it is? LOL

I have a black leather jacket that I wear with boots'n'jeans when travelling. It's dressy'n'casual all at once......weight-perfect for all climates and conditions...except outdoors in winter Alaska!

That jacket and I have been thru a LOT together! It's a definite favorite.

Now you got me thinking, I left it behind in my last move. I had it for years and years, it was a psychedlic velvet peasant top from early 70's. I had it up until my last move, empire waist, velvet they don't make em like that anymore. I got it in a head shop, you remember head shops right?

I have a thin red leather necktie with a piano keyboard on it that I bought back in the Duran Duran and Stray Cats days.

LOL on the eyeballs! Your coat sounds like my kind of cozy, as well.
I have a favorite flannel pair of pajamas that i have had for years, but i keep the house too warm for them.
I had a woodstove fireplace put in when the house was being built. I love that kind of heat. I also have propane and electric. LOL
I figured with 3 different sources of heat, it would never get cold in here from a power outage. The generater is for the computer and TV. LOL
I'm really good at preparing!

Gary,
Is that your dog in your profile? I love that picture or shall I say the dog.
Your necktie sounds pretty groovy.

Lots of my clothes are old!! But one shirt comes to mind. I bought it with my babysitting money in high school (50 cents an hour). It doesn't fit, but I just can't part with it.

My typing is aging as well as my clothes. It was a box pleated skirt not a shirt. My dear grandmother took the hem up and later down as the fashions changed.

It's been so long since I've bought new clothes...I still have some from my pre pregnancy days! LOL...my favorite would have to be my UT Vols sleep shirt I bought back when I was in nursing school back in the 80's...I still wear it! Also the sarong I bought when I was in Hawaii back in 1986...

I have a bandana that my grandfather gave me for Christmas back in the '50s. Must have cost about $.25 back then, when he had 8 kids and five grandkids. Pretty soon, his number of grandkids grew to the point where he couldn't buy gifts for all of them.

I also have some work clothes and an old hat or two from my dad.

Anything else will eventually wind up donated, trashed, or in a yard sale.

I'm not sentimental about clothes but I still have my wedding suit. On Dec. 4th it will be 45 years old. It will also be 50+ pounds old. My wife still has a few items she wore in high school and the weird thing is they still fit. I spent my crazy years in the 50's wearing t-shirts and Levis. If some formal occasion came up I'd wear a v-neck sweater. Not much sentimental value in that.

That's a great cartoon. I still have my cheer leading outfit from high school. I also have all my skating dresses from when I competed. I saved them in case I had girls. I had 2 boys and my one son broke his wrist skating! Maybe my new grand daughter will become a skater.

I don't have anything I can wear right now that I am so attached to that I couldn't get rid of it. BUT I do have a full-length tan Persian wool coat my mother bought me in the early 1950s. I really have given up all hopes of ever wearing it again. Maybe I'll try to sell it on e-Bay or something. Although we were quite poor, my cousin owned a clothing store and sold top of the line clothing. She gave my mother a super deal on the coat.

I also have a top that I made from a skirt my mother made me with material my grandmother bought for me the year she went to the Rose Bowl Parade, probably in the late 1940s or early 1950s. That was back when I had a 24-inch waist (I think my wrist is bigger than that now!! )

It has dark blue print and orange/gold flowers on it. I loved that skirt. After a couple babies, that 24-inch waist disappeared, so I took it apart and used the material to make a sleeveless top. Can't remember how many years it's been since I've been small enough to wear it. It's moved with me several times and my head tells me to throw the top away, but so far I haven't been able to.

I've really been cleaning things out in recent weeks. Maybe this will be the time when I finally give it to the thrift store.

Maybe.

Pat,
You make me laugh out loud! Yor wrist being bigger than that? LOL If that top has been special for all these years, keep it. You would miss it, even though it might be in a box some where. You have fond memories from that top. Keep the memories.

In the 70's I bought an Anne Klein jacket for $5.00. It is tweed with deep front pockets and is sort of boxy. About 10 years ago I had it relined because the lining had holes and was falling apart and had to have the seams reinforced as well. I still wear it, I love it even though my husband hates it. It looks great with jeans and a turtleneck sweater.

I have a purple kaftan with an embroidered butterfly on the front; definitely HIPPIE!
However, whenever I wear it, folks think I got it at a thrift store or yard sale........nope, I have had it in my possessions since early 1970s, from brand new.


I can't bear to part with it now.

Peace atcha!

One of my old schoolmates from '56 still wears his Varsity "A" jacket, complete with wrestling and football pins. I learned a while ago that he has gone through about four of these since school. This is "Lost in the fifties" at it's nauseating best but then he was/is one of the biggest dorks in town.

It was probably the last time in his life he was happy.

I forgot that I also have some pants from high school: Some sparkly Sara jeans and a pair of A. Smile jeans.

hahahahahahahaha

My University of Texas sleep shirt .......it is huge, ultra comfy and has been washed so many times that I think you could read the paper through it. I also have another sleep shirt that my sister gave me nearly 20 yrs. ago and I can't part with that one either. It is really dorky looking with snow ski people zipping down slopes...one of the cats got a claw stuck in it in various places so it has holes in it also.
