I have a quarter zip sweatshirt from our 1997 trip, the first trip for Stefanie, that I wear in the cooler/colder months. Luke also has the t-shirt he purchased that trip and wears it a few times each summer.

Isn't it a shame that Disney's clothing these days isn't as good as it used to be?

As for my oldest piece of clothing it is my 15yr Anniversary Golf Shirt. I only wear it at Disney and only when I go to Trails End and Miss Josephine is working. Back Story. In 2011 on Lucille's 1st ever trip we arrived at 7pm and went to TE to eat. I recognized Miss Josephine as our hostess instantly and announced I was going no where with her as she is mean. Lucille, Miss Josephine and the hostess at the podium are all mortified. The podium lady asks what is the problem. I related the story of how in 1996 I had been to HDDR and worn this shirt and been admonished by Miss Josephine for wearing it. It had by then become a collectors item. Miss Josephine had a vague memory of that interaction and promised not to be mean to me and we were promptly seated after everyone realized I was merely joking and indeed appreciated what she did for me all those years earlier. Today I wear it to show her I still have it thanks to her and thank her every time.
Next up are 2 Ft Wilderness sweatshirts from 1988, that I wear when I am out hunting for free range Kidney and Pinto Beans for my venison chili.

I love this question! 2 things come to mind. The first goes back at least 20 years -- yikes, I just revealed how old I am!! Lol. I was working at Cracker Barrel and a young woman came in with a Tinkerbell sweatshirt that I absolutely loved, so I asked her where she got it and I immediately ordered it from The Disney Store. This was back when they still did the catalogue. It's gray, oversized, has a picture of Tinkerbell and reads "Sharing the Magic". I haven't worn it in forever, but I know -- even with these 6 military moves -- it's packed up somewhere. The other is a gray t-shirt with just a classic Minnie Mouse on it. So soft and starting to show wear around the edges. For the longest it was my go to shirt for every day wear; it and a pair of black capris and I was on my way! I started to donate it once, thinking it was time to let it go, but I couldn't! I just couldn't do it. So, it's either in a closet or drawer somewhere, too. Funny how we hang on to things.

I have a very holey t-shirt and a pair of sweatpants from a trip in 2009. They're both strictly bum around items, but I refuse to get rid of them.
