New Hardware, Old Textiles

Back in the day, if you finished a race the prize was a race t-shirt. Now you get the shirt just for signing-up for a race and that is that. Marathons now usually give medals for completing the distance.

The first t-shirt is from 1980 and may well be the oldest garment I own. There is a 28 year gap between the first and second shirt.
