Clothes maketh the (wo)m*n

I've been sifting through a lot of discolored old print photos, looking for stuff. I'm continually amazed by my clothes. Not that they are bad, but a lot of them I just don't remember wearing, yet there I am in the picture, wearing shorts/a shirt/a jacket I don't recall even owning. Poll time!
