What is your oldest article of clothing?

I have a leather jacket that dates back almost thirty years now, older than that I still have a few of my baby outfits which would put it approaching near half a century now..

Edit:
I think it is pretty cool, when I go into antique stores and see really old outfits, it would be funny to buy something from the 1800s and wander around a Walmart in it. I wonder if I would make it to the people of Walmart site.

I don't know if I have any clothes from childhood, I don't think I do, I have a wrist watch. I still have my gym shorts from HS, 1970s they're probably the oldest article of clothing of mine.

I don't know. I pretty much still have some pretty old stuff. I know of one shirt I bought in the 90s and I still wear it sometimes.

A pair of jeggings I've had since 2015. One of the belt loops tore off not that long ago but other than that they're fine and I still wear them. They're comfortable.

That's about it.

I tend to be pretty hard on my stuff so most of it doesn't last too long. I'm always breaking zippers or putting holes in shirts or ripping shirts somehow. I don't think I have anything that would be older than like 5-6 years old I don't think. Maybe this one pair of jeans I have with rips in the knees is older than that. The rips are from wear and tear I didn't buy them that way.

I get attached to clothes so it annoys me when I destroy them. I ruined the zipper on my favorite jacket last year and it still irritates me to this day that I can't wear it anymore. Especially since there are times I need a lighter jacket than my thick, heavy coat.

I have a box of baby things, but if I don't count those, it would be a pair of shoes I've had since I was 12 and still wear. :) Besides them, I still have some clothes from when I was 15.

I have some t-shirts that are over 10 years old now.

I should buy more clothes... I'm too lazy to do it though. Takes me forever to find one thing I want to wear.

I have a souvenir T-shirt I bought from a local arts festival in 1984. The festival is still going strong so I've wondered what sort of reaction I'd get if I showed up wearing the shirt.

Yea me too I love stuff that is worn-in and beat up. It's more comfortable and imo looks better than brand new clothing. I had the same thing happen to this zip-up sweater I used to have that I loved. I broke the zipper and brought it to a tailor to have it fixed but she said it couldn't be fixed. She was like these sweaters are like $40 just buy another one and I was like but it takes 3 years to get it worn-in the way I like it lol.

I'm pretty sure I've still got a down parker my gf got me when we were in Germany about 35 years ago. It almost looks like that puffy jacket that George wore in Seinfeld - not much need for it in Australia but I kept it anyway.

I have a Cult t-shirt from high school/the 80s in a drawer somewhere. Just over 30 years old.

Think my mother still has some baby clothes stored away, but I don't know. Other than, the moths quite recently got my wardrobe-stored school uniform duffel coat and kilt (from the 90s), so both had to be binned. :( I have two long-sleeved t-shirts from a long-gone British retailer, but they don't fit well, so rarely worn.
