    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’s

    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:

    Gotta be kidding. If I can fit into stuff I wore TWO years ago I’m happy 🙁

    I have a couple of pairs of jeans I bought in ’89-’90 that I still wear now and then.

    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. 🙂

    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 🙁

    I’m still wearing the same underpants. To be honest though the elastic is starting to show a bit now.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Easily, I’m much fitter now than I was at 21.

    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!)

    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.

    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?

    Given that my Joe Bloggs t-shirts were too large first time around, that would be a yes… 😳

    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.

    easier – I was a very fat 12 yr old!

    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 1977

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
