I still have shirts from high school. I wore one a few years ago. It helps that oversized clothes were trendy late in the last century and that the quality of mall-brand clothing then probably was higher than today.

I have a couple of hoodies from high school. I graduated in 1991. They are actually made a lot better than what is out there now and the design is no different than what I've seen out there.

Yes. I've even got a few generic things from elementary and middle school that I still wear.

I'm in my late 20s now, and only a few items are really left from those years. There are some hoodies and a pair of shoes or two that are holdouts that haven't been tossed out. I almost feel like they are mementos of the past and while I'm not sentimental about stuff I leave behind whenever I move, I'm still reminded of the time I spend when I wore them.
Same, just a hoodie, my first research cruise t shirt (I am saving those until I have enough for a quilt), etc. but I did buy my first quality pair of black pumps, manalos, back in grad school. They were 80% off! probably my best buy of all time.
