Shirty

It isn't a table cloth but my shirt. I can't remember ever wearing out a casual shirt but this one has. I was in the middle of ironing it when I noticed the wear. It is a very close up photo and no one would notice the wear, but it ain't gonna get any better. The shirt must be quite old but I like its cut and the way it sits when it is on. As it was mostly ironed, it will see one more wear.

  1. Keep it as a casual jobs around the house shirt. I've had shirts in the past that have been to comfortable to wear that I've worn them until they literally fell apart. Then they became dusters.

  2. I rarely buy clothes these days, so it always saddens me when holes appear or things wear thin. But it's trendy to have holes in your clothing is it not!

  3. Hello Andrew:
    Sadly, the wear cannot be worn. All good things come to an end and this shirt is most likely there!!

    Have a happy day.

  4. I hear what you are saying about wear and tear, but I believe that old and much loved clothes can still be taken out for a spin every now and again.

    Fashion demands we throw out our old clothes at the beginning of each new seaon but bugger that! a] it would be a terrible waste of precious resources and b] sometimes the new fashions are uglier and less comfortable than the old ones. This year's high heels, for example, are INSANE.

  5. Casual is all I ever wear River, except for work. I paint in my casual clothes, I clean in them. Catch me out of a collared shirt and black jeans and $1000 is yours. Pretty boring really. Our old tea towels become dusters.

    Fen, I expect it is trendy, but not on someone my age.

    JayLa, it has served me well. It deserves retirement.

    Hels, did you see something about catwalk models in Melbourne refusing to parade in ridiculously high heels? I have some very old clothes. I expect the shirt was bought in the 1990s.

  6. Does your blog picture count? You're not wearing black jeans in that and I could certainly use $1000.

  7. The old favourites die away, sadly.

  9. River, I didn't notice that. The photo must be quite old then. When did I start this blog? 2004, so yes, I did wear other jeans back then. But you didn't see me back then.

    Christine, sometimes I look at old photos and exclaim, what happened to that? (garment) I liked that. Why don't I have it?

    Grace, you'd have me looking very scruffy. Fine if you are young.

  10. Good luck trying to find a replacement ... by some weird rule of the universe, the clothes we like best are NEVER a continued line!

  11. Red, probably discontinued in the nineties.
