There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned vintage T-shirt that’s been worn a million times. There’s just something about the faded dull color that creates a soft and comfortable look on everyone. While vintage T-shirts are an essential piece of every wardrobe there still comes a time when they need to be tossed into the trash.
We at Wordans understand how a T-shirt can be more then just physically comfortable or visually pleasing. We know what it feels like to wake up and put on your favourite T-shirt (even though it has a rip or a stain on it). We know what it’s like to wear your old T-shirt around the house but then “forget” to change it when it’s time to go somewhere. And we too have pretended that our T-shirts got caught in our zippers and created a hole right before arriving to a restaurant, or that we spilt our coffee “literally one second ago”.
It’s ok to wear your vintage T-shirt “one last time” but just make sure that you don’t make a habit out of it. If you are having a hard time saying goodbye to your favourite vintage or printed T-shirt that clearly is no longer wearable, then try this:
1- Wear your T-shirt one last time.
2- Wash your T-shirt, fold it, and put it back in your closet.
3- Shop around for a new high quality T-shirt like an organic cotton one, a Gildan one, or one from American Apparel – just make sure it’s ether very special or customized.
4- Take it in your closet, rip off the tag, and put on your new Tee.
5- Immediately through your old T-shirt into the trash.
