I thought I’d share with the world that in 2011 I do still have a few items of clothing which I acquired back in the mid ’90s heyday such as this Tommy Hilfiger t-shirt which I bought in 1996.
In the mid ’90s I was well into the designer label clothing and had items from Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Armani & Dolce & Gabbana. On arriving in Vancouver, Canada in the Summer of 1996 I quickly became aware of the popularity of Tommy Hilfiger across North America at that time and not having seen this label in the UK I bought the following T-shirt in September ’96 from a large Eaton’s department store in Vancouver, unfortunately I heard this chain went bankrupt in 1999.
At the time I thought I would impress my friends back in the UK by introducing them to the Tommy Hilfiger label, unfortunately when I got back to the UK in October 1996 it was getting cold so this t- shirt didn’t get viewed by anyone until the Spring of 1997 which by that time Tommy Hilfiger became more prominent in the UK.
Here’s a picture of my 1996 Tommy Hilfiger t-shirt taken at home in 2011:
Looks pretty good for a 15 year old t-shirt and as Chandler Bing may say “Could this t-shirt be anymore 90s?”:)
