The Future Of My Clothing

Where will the clothes I’m currently wearing be found some 10 or 20 years from now, you must wonder. What portion of my current wardrobe will still be in my closet? What will have been given away, or simply trashed? And which articles or shreds of articles will I frame in glass cases to be shown in museums as part of the “Regular Guy-2016” touring exhibit, when it inevitably comes to fruition?

I can tell you that my Big Shoes will certainly be in the touring exhibit, as they are already famous at rock venues across the city and will bust into the museum shows on their own with a swift kick if they’re not invited. I also have a hat from when I visited Sanibel that was worn and washed to death, but it still exists somewhere in this house and is so perfectly tattered (a metaphor for my tattered life?) that denying it space in the exhibit would border on travesty.

I have some sweaters that are – what – 15 years old already? What’s to say they won’t live to see another 15 years? What about 20, or even 40 years!? Just as we humans are expected to live longer and longer lives, our clothing will expect to be there with us, through all the intergalactic wars and ensuing intergalactic political shenanegans.

And yes, some things will have to be tossed (sorry, ladies!).

What, do you suppose, is the future of your clothing?
