I did a load of laundry today, and as I pulled my old Land's End rugby shirt out of the dryer and put it on a hanger, it occured to me that that shirt must be close to 25 years old. We have a family photo from Christmas in about 1995 in which I'm wearing that shirt, and my 22-year old son is about 5 in that picture.<br /> <br /> I probably wear it 10 times every winter, so do the math. It's still all original, the buttons are still tight. It's starting to fray just a little bit on the cuffs, but I bet it can go another 5 years.<br /> <br /> Guess I got my money's worth out of it.

I've got 25 year old t shirts, but this pair of tighty whities I've got on today should be in a museum.

I wear the mezuzah I received from my grandmother when I became a bar mitzvah in 1963.

A 45 year old t-shirt that I use for polishing the grill on my car. But now it is in its eternal rotting place. <br /> <br /> Sincerely,<br /> Dadical

I recently retired my oldest shirt, received for my birthday in 1994. It got snagged on a lever handle on a door and ripped. At the time of its death, it still looked like new. I have no idea how or why that shirt lasted so long and washed so well. <br /> <br /> New oldest thing in my wardrobe is my NJ Devils jersey from the championship season of 1995.

Who has clothing that advertises how old your wardrobe is? <br /> <br /> Part of what is printed on the front of one t is the date, 1988. In big red letters. <br /> <br /> "Hello Gorgeous, how about a date with a guy in a t-shirt from the 80's?!

SB - You're missing some of the good stuff! I still occasionally wear old Army Air Corps fatigues that predate the US Air Force. Some hand-me-downs are more durable than others.

I have close that date back at least to my Navy boot camp days. In particular, I have a corderoy (you remember that large corderoy stuff?) coat that I bought from a place called the 'Seven Seas' on my first libery in boot camp in San Diego, 1970. Do I wear it? To be honest, if I tried to, it would be like trying to put on Ken's (Barbie) close! 8)<br /> <br /> However, I ocassionaly were tube socks that are from the mid '80's. 8)

"I ocassionaly were tube socks that are from the mid '80's."<br /> <br /> That's impressive! I can get decades out of jeans and shirts, but socks & chones don't last nearly as well.

I'm wearing it right now. It's a Triumph Tiger motorcycle t-shirt.<br /> <br /> Edit: It's from the early '70s. A friend's dad gave it to me awhile back.

I have a mother-of-pearl and gold pin that was my great grandmother's with our name in gold wire(my middle name was hers) that was made in the late 1800's. I probably wear it 4-6 times a year.<br /> <br /> What do I win?
