I especially like my tee shirts and jeans that are 10 years plus old
they become so soft and part of me yet the holes that resemble
the styles were earned and eventually are their undoing as they
unravel to not being wearable. New clothes do not fit right even
if they fit perfectly so to speak. Crisp and starched, perfect and pleated,
stiff and itchy. As a child I never liked knew clothes really they were
not mine yet they did not feel right. Sun faded hats, hole filled tees,
ripped and frayed jeans yeah that’s real that’s for me!
Lived in clothes real and they show and share the worn in years!
More buying of clothes from garage sales and thrift stores makes
sense to me as well. For they are pre worn ready to go if I find
a right fit and feel to them then they are knew to me.
Your own style can be established rather than following the latest trends.
In not supporting big corporations, avoiding taxes through person to person
swapping and selling and much cheaper prices also not supporting child
labor and sweat shops We help more with our clothes choices!
Making a difference with our choices is the best we can do!
