I’ve wanted to do a post on “hand me downs” for a while. I really love getting clothes from family that has been passed down. They seem to just have a certan place in the wardrobe that only you find special. I have a few that I really feel need they own post and I intend to due so without putting them off much longer.
This first one I am doing is a Ralph Lauren 20 year anniversary button down shirt (1967-1987). I received this from my uncle for my 18th birthday along with some other “hand me downs”. This shirt was given to him by my grandfather when my uncle was playing rugby for his fraternity at Yale and came down to Louisiana for a tournament in NOLA. After a few years of putting it off I finally got around to getting it fitted to me and I am very pleased with the results. With that being said it is now my favorite shirt I have ever owned!! The color is my favorite part of it, second to its family history, and I ussually get a fair amount of complements or questions on the fact that I am wearing a shirt 2 years older than I am, or if it is really that old?!?
