What's Been in Your Closet the Longest?
We were having a delightful dinner the other night when Phil looked across the table and asked. "How long have you had that jacket?"
Living in Detroit, I'm usually cold and I am allergic to wool and hate jackets that are stiff, so if I can find a soft, broken-in jacket, I hold on to it.
It is just too easy to throw it on--more like I'd throw on a blanket or bathrobe than an item of clothes. I rarely (okay, not too often) wear (wore) it outside the house.
I've had the jacket since the mid-nineties, which wouldn't be so bad if I wore it occasionally or if it still looked pristine or if it was flattering. But it falls into the area of comfort clothes.
Do you have an item in your closet that is this long in the tooth or am I the only one?
