Dang, I guess I should burn all my old 1980s concert T-shirts to appease the fashion gods.

You'd be wrong. This is what happens when you ASSume.

I have a signed Randy Travis T Shirt from a concert back in 1999. I will not give it up. I don't even wear it.

I also have lots of old T Shirts. Many are from USC and a lot of those have the date USC started operating. No I was not there but it is still an old date.

That is another thought: If you wear a T shirt from a school that you attended are you not living in the past? Still why would I ask anyone to give that up. It is who we are.

I have a shirt that says 1994 on it, but it was not purchased or made in 1994. So really, it doesn't necessarily mean anything. Some companies might put the year of their opening on a shirt. Also as a sports fan, I might own a shirt that has the sports team's anniversary on it. I like to go to my local NHL team's games, and I wear the teams shirt which has their date, 1996 on it. I bought the shirt last year. It's appropriate to wear a hockey shirt, to a hockey game!, Gee, should I wear a prom dress instead?

Gap used to date all of their clothing on the back of the tag. I still have a really cool blazer from the Gap from 1991 that I still wear.

I have a concert t-shirt from Michael Jackson's Pepsi tour. It has 1984 on the front of it.

So, is it time to put expiration dates on clothes like we do with food?

"Best worn by May of 1995" and then a light will go on and the wearer will be lit up each time they dare to wear an expired piece of clothing.

"This T-Shirt is time sensitive. "Wear as much as you want until August 1988, then shirt will self-destruct." Hope you're not wearing it when it does.

I mean this as something funny... I wear my old clothes all the time and was being facetious.
We have such a consumerism attitude for our lives here, just applying the same measure folks have for expiring food to fashion.... I'm editing because I notice a red thumbs down. Is that for my post or the thread?
