2nd place would be a rev 2 Gonegold new releases site shirt- the one with the CD logo on the left breast and larger in the back (I have a rev 1 with the original coat of arms design, but it's never been worn). Dark blue and made of heavy duty stuff.

1st would be a Steven Curtis Chapman 'Heaven in the Real world' concert shirt I got in early 1994.  Has no holes to speak of, you can read all of the concert dates and it's amazingly soft and comfortable.

I got a shirt from the 1999 Tibetan Freedom Concert (RFK stadium, Wash DC) that I still wear from time to time. It's beginning to fall apart, but I wear to work on stuff around the apt.

My Newegg shirt that I got for free back in 2001 for buying a DVD+r drive and a 512MB stick of RAM.  I use it to go to the gym nowadays since it's old and beat up.

I don't think I have any shirts dating before 2004 or 2005 since I went through my closet at the beginning of spring and tossed pretty much everything, and those would be some Hawaiian shirts.  since my winter clothes were already stored away I may have a sweater that still fits me that I got back before I graduated HS in 92.

I have a couple t shirts that I got around 94 that I still keep around, even though they are holy as hell... a Jesus Lizard one, an Atomic 61 one, and a BB Rash one... all great bands.  I had to finally just take the sleeves off, but I still throw them on to paint or do yard work, etc.  I recently did a brutal closet clean/goodwill session on my clothes, but I couldn't bring myself to do away with those 3.

I have a NFL shirt that says "Property of Houston Football" from early 2000.  It doesn't mention the name "Texans" because the name had not yet been determined.

I have 2 Penn and Teller shirts when they came to Reno back in 90something. I still wear them. Along with a Crown RoadDog shirt. Although I just got some new ones of those from my Dad so I will add them.

I've finally started weaning out most of my old band t-shirts from highschool (1994-1997) that hadn't already completely fallen apart.  I still have a Metallica shirt that has paint splatter on it because I wore it to help paint a house and refinish a basement that should probably get tossed but it doesn't have any holes in it so it's a laundry day shirt still.  I still have a Gamits shirt from back then that's in pretty decent shape.  I have a lot of shirts from 1999-2004 that are still in great shape because I'm not (read: I gained a lot of weight several years ago and they don't currently fit me).

I just threw away my BlackMage shirt from 2002. I have a Wind River hoodie that is as old as dirt that I still wear around campfires and such. 1991, IIRC.

I have a Quake 2 tshirt that my sister gave to me about 2 years after the game was out. Simple Q2 logo with the id logo on the back near the neck.

Was wearing it one day at the mall and some young kid walks by and says 'sick shirt' - made me feel pretty cool for an old guy.

T-shirt I got when I was in Boy Scouts with our camp logo on it.  Got it in 86 or 87.  It has a couple of small holes so it's something I'll only wear around the house.

After I got out of the Navy in '84 my friend bought me a cool shirt to upgrade my exclusively t-shirt wardrobe.  She has good taste and I still wear it to this day.

I have nothing more than 3 years old.  When I grad schooled it I took pride in dressing like a slob.   When I got a job I had to upgrade to business casual.   I start telecommuting full time in a week and I am looking forward to pitching the Polos and stocking up on T-shirts.

Fun thread.

I haven't bought any new clothes since 2005, so all of my shirts are at least that old. The oldest is a blue collar work shirt with my name over the pocket that came with a janitorial job in 1976. It's too tight now to button up -- I was a skinny teenager then -- but I can wear it as a smock when I'm painting or something. It is indestructible.

As far as shirts that I still wear in regular rotation, I have a Lords of the Realm II T shirt from 1996. I have a Star Trek TOS shirt that coincided with the Star Trek: Federation Science exhibit from 1992. I was friends with the apparel buyer in the museum gift shop, and I still have a few of the many sample T shirts that she gave me. Those could go back as far as 1986.

I guess 1992 is as far back as I can go with certainty, but I'm quite sure that I have other clothes from the 1980s. Most of my dress shirts were bought during the Reagan administration. I only wear a dress shirt maybe once a year so they are all still in good condition.

I'd say my RATT t-shirt I got at a 1987 concert. It has cig burn holes in it  and the neck and arms are ripped off. It's also kinda rotten now. Can't wash it. but  I have worn it around the house within the last 2 years.

if we're including outerwear I have a leather trench from the early 90's that's just starting to fall apart.  time to butcher some more cows!

Agreed.

I used to hold onto T-shirts, even shirts I would never wear, until my wife decided to start periodically purging old T-shirts she and I would just pack away into the backs of drawers that were either torn, stained with paint, too small, or just outdated.  Right now the oldest shirt I have is one I received as a gift from the owner of my favorite tattoo studio back in Philly with "Another Tattooed Victim from Everlasting Art" printed across the back.  That shirt is from 1999.  I occasionally wear it to the gym, around the house while doing messy chores/painting/cleaning, or to the pool or boating when I don't want to get sunscreen all over shirts I like to wear with more regularity.  All other old shirts have been tossed away, especially sweatshirts as they're rarely needed in Arizona.  Actually, they haven't been tossed away, but donated to Goodwill. 

I love the feel of a worn, soft T-shirt, but most have been purchased that way for convenience and so that the white ones are actually white and all others are presentable and in good condition.  Being a full-time student once again, T-shirts and plaid shorts are my primary items of clothing, but I see no reason why feeling comfortable has to be synonomous with "slovenly" or "sloppy."  And once shirts start to reach that level of wear when they cease to be "vintage" and start to look bad, then it's time to move on.  Fabulous

Course not.

But to simply rule out plaid in general ignores current fashion trends.  Still, the "patchwork" nonsense is awful.

Plaid is decent in general, certainly a bolder choice than I normally go with for shorts.  But I'm glad we agree on the nonsense that is the patchwork option.

I just purged most of my old stuff, but I have a classic 2 button Ralph Lauren suit jacket that I've had for a few years and should remain relatively timeless, and a couple of shirts that I bought right when menswear started getting a little more fitted - say 4-5 years ago.

I also have the requisite ratty old t shirts that see gym duty.

My wife, OTOH, has a closet full of vintage dresses from the 50s and 60s that get work constantly.

oldest i still wear regularly is a Social Distortion tour shirt from '89 - the black has faded to a weird purply-tinge, but it's still good.

ones i wear occasionally: Alice Cooper "Welcome To My Nightmare" '87, The Damned "Phantasmagoria" album release from '85 and The Police "Synchronicity Tour" '83 (i think - is also a 'small' size, so the times i wear it are few). there are some Cure and Depeche Mode ones from the late '80s, but they're either really worn or too tiny.

oh wait! i just remembered the Pac-Man shirt i won at a 4th of July carnival game. that's from '81, i think. it's extremely fragile and i don't dare wash it, so i don't wear it anymore.

An old Philadelphia Flyers t-shirt with the sleeves torn off. It was my brother's when he was still in High School.

He's 36 now.

I usually wear it when I workout or do any yard work. It's still in good shape really, it's just really thin.

I have more shirts kicking around from high school days than I should admit, hah.  But the ultimate prize has to go to the pair of NB high tops I got for basketball in 8th grade, hiked to the top of Long's Peak and mowed countless yards in... that I still have and occasionally wear.  And I am 40.   icon_redface

Have a mudhoney t from 93 piece of cake tour. Don't wear it much now (did until year agoish) as it now has a few holes around the screen print. Also have a Dans Comp t (bicycle mail order co) from 94 that is in good shape except its off white as I wore it in the local lakes a bit too much.
