When to say goodbye to a good friend?

post #1 of 18

Do I keep this or toss it?

I bought this @15 years or so ago -- Rubinacci for Louis Boston shirt, gray end on end. Collar and cuffs are tattered and arms are blown through at the elbow. I have worn it many times with the collar and cuffs in shreds but not that the elbows are gone it may be time to go to shirt heaven.

It is a great thing to buy something you enjoy enough to really wear it out. I just hate to see it go...

You could always wear it on casual days around the house with jeans :0

I'd definitely keep it. It will still look good with jeans, khakis, even shorts in the summer. Or just something to wear in the house instead of a t-shirt.

Looks like the shirt is just hitting its stride.

Keep it, worn clothes have character.

Let your SO wear it as pajamas, it must be soft as hell by now.

Cut it off into a short sleeve shirt and wear it for painting the house or whatever.

Keep that shirt.

I would wear that out of the house with boots and jeans, probably with a long sleeve t-shirt or thermal top underneath now that the elbows have gone.

I have one in similar condition. Elbows are just totally gone, cuffs and collar are ragged. I'll be damned if I'm giving it up. I love this shirt. I wear it with jeans, etc. with the sleeves rolled up. I may take it to the tailor to see if he has any suggestions for the elbows.

Keep it.

Ok -- I'm keeping it. I'll put it away for spring.

I was wearing it warmer fall days with the sleeves rolled, really liking the gray color with khakis...

Maybe we should start a tattered thread with well used shirts, shoes, suits, outerwear?

I tend to prefer things when they have been worn in with a certain patina...
