What’s Your Oldest Article of Clothing? (That You Would Wear)

18 year old sweatshirt

So what is the oldest article of clothing you still wear on a regular basis? I have a couple of sweatshirts from about 15 years ago. One is a Michigan Wolverines hoodie and the other is a Vale, Colorado sweatshirt. To be fair, the only people outside of the house who’ve seen me in the Vale sweatshirt are the folks at Walmart at 11pm.

Today, I am wearing probably the oldest article of clothing I own and that I would wear to work, my Pepsi shirt. I remember how I got it. It was from a Pepsi promotion we did at a station I worked for back in the mid 90’s.

It’s dark blue with ‘Pepsi’ written across the chest. The coolest part of the sweatshirt is it looks inside out, but isn’t. It was given to me in 1995 or 1996 out of a storage locker the station owned in Bangor or Brewer.

I also have a 1996 Olympic sweatshirt from Atlanta. I didn’t go, but someone got it and gave it to me. Probably the oldest garment of all would be my C98 t-shirt from an internship in 1993. I would wear it but it smells like cedar and is very thin at this point.

I also have an LL Bean poncho type winter jacket which is also from 1995 or 1996. I wear it maybe once or twice a year. (It’s the  men’s version of the same coat shown in the link above.)

Maybe I need to go shopping? If you ask my wife Lynn, she’ll tell you I have more clothes than she does. Yes, I do wear things until it’s time to make them into rags or time to throw them out.
