    The oldest is a green and white tie-died t-shirt i got around 1992, i still wear it on weekends sometimes, it is full of holes and covered in blue paint.
    My watch is 12 years old, i have replaced its innards many times over the years.

    Most of my clothes these days are hand-me-ups from my sons, though I buy my own shorts and hawaiian shirts each year. But I do have a gorgeous velvet shirt, a sort of browny-green with purple diamonds, on that I brought in Kensington High St. in about 1971. Still fits, though I can't button it up these days.

    not sure that counts then...

    what's the oldest piece of clothing that you still wear?
    ...but it sounds very trendy, what does the collar look like?

    ...oh, and speaking of Hawaiian shirts, I have a really nice one from the early 60's but I bought only earlier this year. It has a band of surfboards and hibiscus flowers. i wear it when I play my ukulele

    Insanity is just a point of view. After all, the world looks pretty normal through your own underpants.

    a couple of T-Shirts I got in 2001 while living in Paris, specially the Cannes festival one, but I also have lots of new clothes that I hardly wear, I'm a creature of habit when it comes to clothes, specially when lying around the house

    I have a Bad Tour t-shirt that is from 1988. I didn't buy it new of course, I was 2.

    I have a Ricky Williams Dolphins jersey.

    It might have been valuable had they not let him back on the team after the CFL stint.

    Also have a Steve McNair Titans jersey. That's probably worth something now. Hadn't thought about that...

    Jerseys don't really increase in value unless they are signed and/or game worn.

    Maybe not much for such recent players. But, I'm pretty sure that there are people that would pay more than the original price for old Montana, Cunningham, etc. jerseys.

    Replica throwbacks already sell for more than new modern jerseys: http://www.mitchellandness.com/

    Have you seen those mitchell and ness jerseys? They are works of art, not your typical off the shelf stuff.

    Speaking of jerseys, I recently went to my first Florida Panthers game in years and wore my signed jersey.

    By a very cool coincidence one of the players that signed my jersey back in the 90's, Radek Dvorak, was back on the team (after playing for New York, Edmonton, and St. Louis over the last 10 years), and I got to watch him score a hat-trick in the last seconds of the game.

    I couldn't have picked a better game to go to.
