A 10 year Old Shirt Is Still Around

I had to laugh when I noticed that when my husband was getting dressed to go get his new driver's license and passport picture, he was wearing the same shirt he wore 10 years ago. I had no idea that the shirt was 10 years old it is still in perfect condition but I had the evidence in front of me, his passport. I know we all have favorite clothes but do you have anything that is 10 years old that you still consider a go-to piece today? I should have taken a picture of his passport because this time they did not return his old passport to us. I just realized he wore that shirt to our granddaughter Julias wedding, here it is.

I actually do. I have one shirt that I bought fifteen years ago, and every single time I wear it I get compliments on how pretty it is. Isn't that funny? I have nothing else nearly as old.

It was obviously a good purchase. I have a shirt that is only a couple years old but I also get compliments every time I wear it.

I have many great clothes that are even 20 years old, still perfect and beautiful. My husband has several shirts he bought before we moved here from Monte-Carlo, we moved 12 years ago.

When you buy good quality it can last for a very long time.

@BelleStarr You are right, you pay more but clothes last 10 times longer.

This is a summer shirt that he only wears three months of the year so that quite explains it.

I don't have any piece of clothing that old that I could wear for a picture of any kind, of course I have old things I love to wear around the house. I think it's a man thing. My husband would do that.

I think that the shirt has held up very well and still seems current, not out of style. I wore a green shirt, I called it my Michelle Obama green-remember "that" shade of green, when I had my passport done in 2009. I was so glad to get that photo redone, it was an awful colour!

@RubyHawk I agree, I think that as long as we love the pieces and they have life left in them it is wasteful to just get rid of them. lol Makes me sound a bit of hoarder doesn't it lol

I think most of my shirts, except the new ones I bought this past year are all ten or more years old. I'm wearing a Super Bowl 31 sweatshirt and we just had Super Bowl 51. So this one is at least 20 years old. The date on it says January 26, 1997.

It's surprising how some things last. I have a knitted black skirt and top with silver woven in it. I bought it 25 years ago. The skirt has an elasticated waist. It is one of those timeless pieces and I still wear it on occasions.

@kobesbuddy I think so too. It does seem that the styles come and go, and these days, I think most just forgo what is in style and wear what they like.

I tend to choose more classic styles than trendy ones so they don't go out of style so quickly.
