About 7 years ago, I was the happy recipient of 21 men's shirts from Freecycle. I sent several to big grandson after conferring with my daughter. She may have used them for rags or set them out on the sidewalk as free. I don't care. They were all in excellent shape and excellent brand names.
The rest I gave to exbf. He picked out what he liked and what fit him. He is still wearing them. I think he took 10 shirts. A few months ago, he had on really nice jeans, the kind that are just a big baggy in the leg and pegged a bit at the bottom. I complimented the look, the fit. (maybe they are out of style). Since I had never seen them, I questioned him.
He worked as the guy at the gas station at Sam's club. Now, he is a greeter. A regular customer came in one day and asked him if he would like a stack of pants. He had lost weight and thought exbf might be able to wear that size. I think the guy had six pair. He gladly took all the guy offered and all fit.
I found unused socks in a free box one day. He wears those, too.
So, the exbf is practically clothed for free. He is easy on clothes at his job. He cannot mow his yard or mine. But, all old clothing is saved for work that might damage clothing.
Neither the shirts or pans had stains, holes, or any signs of wear. It's not that he will wear anything! He has okay taste and looks good in his free, barely worn clothing.
Do you have anyone in your family that is lucky enough to get free clothing? Does your family rebel against free clothing, used or new? Got a spectacular free clothing story or a mundane story?
