I looked in my closet and reflected on how long ago it seemed like I first went to live on my own in college and the stuff I had when I graduated (even though it really wasn't that long ago, it feels like it).

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.

I have one item left. A camel pencil skirt. Everything else was rejected. I do have a sweatshirt from high school with my name embroidered on it that my mom wears. And a few math team tshirt so from middle and high school because they had funny sayings.

Yes, I still have some clothes from high school and college. I'm kind of proud I can still fit in them after all these years - they are from the 1970s. My favorite thing from back then is my platform shoes. My daughter actually borrowed them for a time because they're so cool. I agree these things are like mementos and bring back fond memories of times gone by. Thanks for the fun thread and memories.

I am in my late 40s and still own clothes from college when I was in my 20s. Trousers still fit although shirts are problematic as my biceps,traps and pectorals are much larger and so the shirts are tight up top.

I have one item that I bought at age 17. Tried it on about two years ago and decided that I need to lose a few pounds. It is a leather vest that I had custom made at a San Francisco area "Head Shop". I also found a check stub in the pocket from the job I did in college - $3/hour, 60 hours for the week, no overtime pay.
