THE OLDEST PIECE OF CLOTHING I OWN


This entry was posted in The Ask and tagged on by .

A friend of Hue received this T-shirt as a gift from his grandmother in 1990:

No, Hue didn't go to Oxford.

My oldest shirt

It’s a little too sheer now to wear out of the house, but our friend still sleeps in it.  He would never give it away.

You can't buy holes like this.

It represents his grandmother’s dreams.

    November 1986 or 87 I don’t remember exactly but it was “Mois de la Photo a Paris”. I had no interest in going to Paris, everything I had heard was negative, however I fell in love with the city instantly. All the galleries and museums had special photography exhibits, I bought a catalog and a tee shirt, not sure why I don’t wear tee shirts much but now I love this shirt even though I don’t really wear it.
