DiS seems like the kind of place where people right now are wearing t-shirts they bought a decade ago.
from about 5 years ago i still wear
looking forward to all the shit-cunts trying to outdo each other with washed-grey band t-shirts from yesteryear
I bought it at a ROTA show they did Maths/Cutting Pink With Knives/Fuck Buttons about 7 years ago.
Football socks from 1999
Green jumper bought for a pound 2002 Also, a shirt from the same trip for £5 (although this is looking a bit dog eared now).
I haven't grown since I was about 11
ten year old t-shirt probs
not very interesting sorry
Is stuff you've bought from a vintage shop as opposed to owning
I thought we were bros :'(
TheBro GBro, we are always bros.
that's 19 years! Last time it fit was 3 years ago, hoping it'll fit again one day
cropped denim halterneck from benetton that I still wear very occasionally on holiday (you can only really wear it with shorts on a bech.) I think this might be my oldest thing in my wardrobe too.
just can't let it go, in my head it still looks cool for some reason but I bet to other people it looks battered
doesn't really fit, to be honest, but i got a large because my mum and dad thought i'd gorw into it.
as non vintage then we may have had a corker.
most items described as '1950s vintage' often is a reproduction from the 80s and stuff.
Vintage is 20+ years old, so anything 1994 or older.
Speaking. Not so much the case in places like Topshop on Oxford Street. I used to be a buyer for the vintage section there years ago and I have to say 'vintage' could be anything, even ass recent as 5-10 years ago. Tags would be cut form the inside. Other shops like Rokit are similar.
most vintage shops round here either use american deadstock (expensive), stuff sourced from charity shops (huge mark up) or 'vintage' stuff from two seasons ago at new look/topshop with the tags cut out.
I really havent got time to be on DIS and here I am posting away without a care in th world and food in my hair.
it's a bit short on the arms but fits me ok (I was tall in primary school then stopped growing). it's still so comfy and it has a hood and i dont think it's ever going in the bin.
stripey top i got in France when I was 9 (I remember how thick the fabric was when i got it, it was really stiff and massive on me. must have been through the wash hundreds of times).
Mostar tshirt that I got on holiday in Bosnia when I was 14
Black skirt (with elasticated waist band) that I got when I was 13. Had soooo much use out of that thing.
A lot of my clothes are from when I was about 14/15. Also wear my mum's old stuff too (which is probably gonna count as vintage so I wont count that).
Forgot about them altogether
if we're just going all out here with tv series then i will add sabrina the teenage witch and the violent femmes
But in THAT case, I definitely got into a couple of bands from Buffy iirc
I wish people could make threads together. I would be able to get away with so much more if I could add an enforcer to ward off Royter And The Jerks.
Why Pastel Colours Are Really Great

never change xylo <3
17-19 years old: A Blur t-shirt from the eponymous album tour and a Radiohead Glasto '97 one. Then there are three long-sleeved gap t-shirts I got in the sale and two short sleeved ones: one/some of those are from 96 or 97, I think.
weezer in 2001. bought it when it was far too big for me, now use it for sleeping and running
...is a Silas one that I bought 12 years ago. Aged surprisingly well actually. Bought some special cleaner that got the deodorant stains out of the pits.
given to me as a Christmas gift in about 2005. Great value for money, I had about 4 pairs and only binned one due to holes in the crotch.
brown at the back aye?
I had some white ones, they didn't last long.
so 2 months.
this probably explains why I have another smaller bedroom to keep my clothes in
i'm a spoilt brat
That's going to be one hell of a celebration!!
and baggy red hurley tee from when I was 13 and wanted to be in blink 182. It came in handy when my friend had a 30th birthday pop-punk party.
Reckon it's got at least another couple of decades in it.
Oh god. I'm still going to be wearing hoodies aged 55 aren't I?
Had any wear outta that orange hoodie, planik? Or did you realise it's not quite bright enough and sling it in the chazzer? My yellow one is in temporary retirement since MzWza got her on-trend yellow coat. Have reverted back to my fifteen year old hot pink hoodie. Pink is apparently seeing an upsurge in popularity amongst young boys (primarily on account of some football teams having pink strips/training kit, it would seem). CLOTHES.
...and a stripey jumper than my nan knitted me that is 19 years old. Still wear both during winter.
Just remembered, got a Silverfish band t-shirt that I think breaches the 20 year rule - don't wear that anymore though.
Do You Like Best
I have a t-shirt and pair of shorts I bought in 2003 which I still wear now.
which I bought from a show at Glasgow QMU in October 1993.
It was my Dad's.
I guess probably a Funeral For A Friend T-Shirt I got at a gig in 2007-ish when I was 14. It was waaaaay too big for me then.
I do also have a hoodie of my dad's which is 13 years old which I wear regularly.
So it's now 15-16 years old. It was massive on me at the time and it's still quite big now.
