I wrote about this shirt in 2007. I'm writing about it again. Yes blogging is so bad I am now writing the same blog post about the same thing just twelve years later. Think of this as the reboot. Same narrative new, higher res, images.
For the new listeners here's a recap. I bought this shirt with some money my Granny gave me for my 18th birthday. That makes it 13 26 years old. I bought it in a shop in Bath called John Anthony for £75.
The same comments I made in the original post still apply.
1. 26 years on I still have absolutely no idea what I was doing spending £75 on a shirt. Although over 26 years that works out at £2.88 a year so if they'd had subscription models back then I reckon this would have been a great deal.
2. 26 years. More than half my life. And yes, maybe well made, well designed things last longer and that's better. Slow fashion ftw.
Anyway. Next update 2031.
