Oldest Item Of Clothing?

What's the oldest item of clothing you own? Is it still in one piece? Do you still wear it?
I have a 25-year-old "Pirate Shirt" from the Deva Lifewear company. I still wear that thing and it still looks okay. Those folks know how to make something, let me tell you.
How about you?

  • I have a white shirt with a flower print that looks like the flowers were painted on it. They're all pink, green, purple or yellow. I've had the shirt since I was 10 or so, (so at leats 13 years..) maybe younger. I used to be able to wear it as a dress..... now it just fits. I wore it when my son came home from the hospital....I've worn it once or twice since as a nightshirt.. but it's holey, and not really decent enough to wear out in public, though most of the holes are on the back of the shirt..

  • Hmmm would have to be some pants and shirts that are 5 or so years old. Have little holes but I still wear them.

Oddly enough, I just got a message from an old friend that said she was wearing a pair of pants that I gave her well over ten years ago...

  • lol a shirt from an old boyfriend that me and my friend wrote all over when he broke up with me. Then my other friend ryan took it and drove over it with his car and then we bleached it cause we were going to give it back and I felt bad. Needless to say he didn't want it but we are still friends (and have been for like 6 years) and it's a little inside joke for us all. I don't wear it anymore cause well he's not my boyfriend.

  • A 20's flapper dress, which I unfortunately don't get too wear very often. :( *pouts* lol! Has the matching hat thing too, can never remember what it's called.. the beaded cap dangly thing? xD A pair of Victorian era shoes, which I do get to wear occasionally, and a pair of WWII German military boots (paratrooper, I think), and a WWII German visor cap. I don't wear the boots often, because I don't want to damage them, and the hat usually only comes out for photoshoots or costume events for the same reason.
