Prompt: Everyone has a favorite article of clothing—an inherited wedding dress, a flannel shirt borrowed from an old friend, a warm pair of socks received on Father’s Day. Find an article of clothing that you can’t throw away because of an emotional connection. Write a piece describing why this piece of clothing means so much to you, and use it as a source to explore people, time, and how simple objects can possess so much meaning. Recommended time/length: as much as you need

I purchased a sort in 2006 that has seemed to be aalways on the forefront of my mind. it's yellowish brow wide horizontal stripes seem to be the only way I can picture myself while I am picturing myself in anything. it's probably the ugliest shirt imaginable, but for some reason, I can't seem to stop wearing it. singed with cigarette burns and slightly thinning it is my diamond in the rough.

@MatthewGuevremo The line that was most telling for me: "you know what the stripes are vertical, that's what makes it special" is more telling than everything else you told me. It's so familiar, and so loved, and yet, we still don't remember it properly. Interesting, no?
