Item 5- Beige Tank

What? Beige tank

How long have I had it? 16 years

Where did I get it? Old Navy

What do I love about it? I love clothes that I’ve had for a long time. Feels like I’m eeking every bit of life out of them. It’s also comfy and a great foundational piece. Goes with everything.

    Good to know a piece from a fast-fashion store like Old Navy has lasted for 16 years! I only wonder if their clothes are being made today with the same quality as they were 16 years ago….

      I wonder, too! It’s funny, I’ve heard from some sources that they’re better about sweat shop labor now than they have been in the past. But, I would be hesitant to buy something there now because of their history with labor practices. Sixteen years ago, I wasn’t even thinking about sweatshop labor.

    16 years. . .I’m very impressed!

  3. Sixteen years IS impressive. I threw out a 12 year old Old Navy T in the clear out which was pretty faded. I think the quality of the cotton jersey was good so it had stood up to a lot of use before eventually fraying on the sleeve edges.
