Inspiration: During my first year in college, I bought what I thought was the most incredible blue denim shirt. It was over-sized and made of soft but densely woven cotton. I cannot tell you how many different ways I wore that shirt. Over a few years, it started to fall apart (like my awesome Earnest Sewn denim jacket is now after only three years) but I kept repairing it . . . adding buttons and asking the tailor at my dry-cleaner to patch it or sew it up. Finally, not too long ago, after years of service, the shirt disintegrated. Literally. Her denim button-down reminded me of my old, loyal go-everywhere shirt. Although hers looks like it's got years to go before suffering the fate of mine. Do you have an item of clothing that you've worn to death?
