Own up can you still fit into clothes you wore 20 years ago?
Being one not to throw away good quality clothing, I am today mostly wearing a top, which is 10 years old and shorts, which are 18 years old.
In the wardrobe there are even things dating back to the late 70’sPosted 11 years ago
I’m a bit of a different body shape nowadays, given I was 6 years old 20 years ago … regretably these natty postman pat slippers will no longer fit:

errr no, was 3st heavier back then and just about to discover MTBs!!Posted 11 years ago
Gotta be kidding. If I can fit into stuff I wore TWO years ago I’m happy 🙁Posted 11 years ago
Yep. ten years ago I wouldn’t have been able to, but I can now 🙂Posted 11 years ago
no i was 4 – but a pretty snappy dresser.
now where is that sailor suit!!Posted 11 years ago
well 20 nope as I have grown up a fair bit since I as 10 but 10 years old that is more than likely 😀Posted 11 years ago
I have a couple of pairs of jeans I bought in ’89-’90 that I still wear now and then.Posted 11 years ago
I have a wonderful leather jacket my dad had when he was in his 20s which I can still fit into in my 40s.
I love it – it is so retro it gets comments whenever I wear it. 🙂Posted 11 years ago
I’m the same size now as I was in the early eightiesPosted 11 years ago
erm……………………..noPosted 11 years ago
Oh you’re all so young. Wipes tear from eye.Posted 11 years ago
I haven’t got much left from that long ago, but still wear stuff from 10+ years ago every day- I don’t buy many new clothes! Just in the last year or 2 though a couple of things have started to feel a bit tighter 🙁Posted 11 years ago
yesPosted 11 years ago
I still wear the first cycling top I ever bought which is 25yrs old.Posted 11 years ago
I wish 😥Posted 11 years ago
Im actually sat in the same Diesel jeans right now!Posted 11 years ago
my oldest bit of kit is 12 years old and that my wedding suit, it still fits me, thinking about it, I bet I could get into my Mrs wedding dress if needs must 😉Posted 11 years ago
I’m still wearing the same underpants. To be honest though the elastic is starting to show a bit now.Posted 11 years ago
Yes, I was a 34″ waist and a 42″ Chest at 21, I still am, admittedly there has been some weight fluctuation in 20 years.Posted 11 years ago
Yup, I’m going horseriding on saturday and will be wearing the jodphurs I bought when I was 15. The top I was wearing yesterday is probably 10 years old as well.Posted 11 years ago
Most of Mr MC’s clothes are at least 10-15 years old! I’m always ribbing him for being a cheap skate and not buying some new stuff! Admittedly I wouldn’t 20 years ago as that would’ve made me 10!! But 7-8 years ago maybe, working towards getting back into those clothes at the mo though!Posted 11 years ago
Easily, I’m much fitter now than I was at 21.Posted 11 years ago
Yes (if 15 years is acceptable)…I’ve been a 32″ waist since I was about 16…I can still fit in my clothes – although the oldest bit of clothing I have is my kilt and that just fits me – bought 15 years ago…saying that, my chest has got slightly bigger and arms longer, but pretty much everything I own still fits me (but then I hardly buy new clothes – I wear them until they fall apart so it’s easy for me to confirm this!)Posted 11 years ago
This is a timely thread as after 20 years I am going back to uni for a year to do my masters so need to reaquaint myself with what is de rigueur for studes. I’d say I am probably a 34 around the waist and was 32 at uni, but t shirts, shirts and jackets etc would all fit if I had any.Posted 11 years ago
I know people who know me won’t believe this but no probably not trousers.Posted 11 years ago
Lol @ roper. mmmm if I didn’t buy mr b.h new undies, he would be wearing them for years and years.
mrsflash let me know how you get on? Will you be walking like John Wayne on the SUnday?Posted 11 years ago
Given that my Joe Bloggs t-shirts were too large first time around, that would be a yes… 😳Posted 11 years ago
Lol, bunnyhop I hope not! I’ve not been on a horse for 3 years though, so it’s a distinct possibility. We’re off for an hour and a half’s hack from kilnsey, really looking forward to it.Posted 11 years ago
easier – I was a very fat 12 yr old!Posted 11 years ago
Yup – gone up a little round the waist – from 29 to 31 so depending how generously cut things were back then – I can still wear trousers I bought in 1977Posted 11 years ago
Yo-yo’d abit. I have lots of suits that just hang off my shoulders from early 00’s. Not because I was fat- thats where the builk of me sat. now its gone from my shoulders to my guts and ass!Posted 11 years ago
I went a bit mad with a scanner a couple of weeks ago. I think I shall have a look through these and see if anything fits. I think the toga should deffo.
Be warned – some v dodgy mid – late 80s photographic content in these!Posted 11 years ago
Looking back at what I was wearing 20years ago (my uni hey days), even if I did fit into them I really don’t think that I want to wear them again! The only things I remember fondly from that wardrobe were the monkey boots that I wore all the time.Posted 11 years ago
nope, as i was 10, 20 years ago! can still fit into stuff i bought when i was 18 though.Posted 11 years ago
For the first time in over 15 years I probably can right now. Wish I’d kept some of those clothes as my current ones are a bit tight.Posted 11 years ago
Hmm, 20 years ago I was 10 also. In my early teenage years I was flat as a pancake and lived in an odd combination of sportswear, checked trousers, checked shirts and cute skirts. All of that stuff has gone (thank goodness) but I did wear a top that I first wore when I was 18 the other week to go to a 70’s night, it had belonged to my Mum some years ago.Posted 11 years ago
20 years!! pffft, i can till were stuff i wore at school in the 70’s
granted it’s a wooly beany hat but hey 🙂Posted 11 years ago
:-O i’ve just added a year to my age – i was only 9 twenty years ago. not even turned 30 yet, and losing my marbles 🙁Posted 11 years ago
That’s what happens dgoab 😉Posted 11 years ago
