There’s a definite line between my mucking-about clothes and clothes I wear when I’m in town. It’s not an understatement to say that the homeless dress better than I do when I have to work around the farm.
All my work clothes were once acceptable, but constant washing and wearing has left most of them in tatters. This one is my favorite. I swear, if I ever find this t shirt again, I’ll buy two. I love the color, the cool Aussie graphic, and how well it fits. I think I’ve had this one for nearly 30 years.
Over the years I’ve had to toss a few of my favorites into the trash. Nowadays, I keep the really soft ones to use as rags or torn into strips to use as ties for my tomato plants.
Am I the only one who keeps work clothes for decades? Is this too tattered for you to wear if you were in the garden or working on your car?
Feel free to share your ratty clothes photos here or on my Facebook post. I don’t want to feel alone. 🙂
I should point out that when I went to Amazon to pick out work wear products, they had plenty for men, but women’s work clothes consisted of sexy tops and slacks. I had to specifically ask for women’s overalls. Maybe it’s the company I keep, but most of the women I know get down and dirty. A frilly frock just won’t do.
