My Favorite Shirt is old and smelly but its comfortable April 4, 2013 – Posted in: Uncategorized

What is your favorite t-shirt? I like to ask customers that when they come in. I get alot of different answers some of them are even interesting. For some people their favorite shirt reminds them of their favorite concert or church retreat. For others it’s the most comfortable shirt they own or it belonged to someone they loved and was passed onto them. They say they can remember the smell that goes with it and that reminds them of the person when they wear it.

Mine happens to be a shirt I have had for over 8 years. It is the most comfortable t-shirt I own. The t-shirt is red and has the crest of my indoor soccer team on the left chest, and big on the center chest is logo of Eggroll Express, a local Chinese restaurant. The shirt itself represents so much to me. I have played over 100 soccer games in this shirt with friends I have had since high school. When I put it on I get a little excited because I know I am about to play a game or it reminds me of one I recently played. Its not just a piece of cloth anymore it “means” something to me. It is made out of the softest material and  that’s why I made it on that material but that’s not why it’s special to me.

The Calvary t-shirt is my new favorite though. It reminds me of my Grandma. She loved the hymn “The Old Rugged Cross” and it reminds me of when I sat with her in church and she would sing and harmonize with me.

So, now its your turn. I would love to hear a story of your favorite t-shirt. What does it mean to you?
