    I have some that are forty years old and still worn regularly, they can be aged very accurately as most are from gigs

    I've clothes of similar vintage, including a blouse that's made of hemp.
    It's well worn, but it doesn't scare the livestock.

    Like everyone else, though, I've bought clothes of manmade fibres out of ignorance in the past, I'm sorry about it, and now try to buy more carefully.
    I'm not terribly impressed to find so many garments made from mixed fibres, though. It's increased in the last few years - as cotton prices have risen, and manufacturing quality has decreased.

    So do I. Even the spectacles I wear daily are surely 20 years old if not older. I had newer ones when these, according to my wife and daughter, went out of fashion but I was soon back wearing these again. They are now back in fashion again apparently.
    I wear trousers daily that started out dark grey but are now, 10 to 15 years later, very light coloured indeed. They are also very thin and I've lost a couple of pairs due to this. I feel that before the end of this year I shall have to do this century's first and last clothes shopping, unfortunately.

    You are meant to have two of everything so that you can wash them now and again. And patch them.

    Buy cheap Primark and you buy twice.

    I've got clothes that are 20-25 years old, when the wife or kids comment I just say 'It still works' (i.e. a shirt that still covers arms and torso, which is what it was designed for).
