This green jumper is a bit less than fifteen years old. Mum bought it to me for Christmas. It is old, worn out, has been repaired a number of times and of course it is out of fashion. All the same, every time I go home, where it now stays, I wear it. It still fits me, for one and I find it warm and comfortable. In fact, it is maybe the most comfortable jumper I ever wore. Oh and I love wearing green clothes, for some reason. This jumper is perfect for cold autumn and winter days. Sometimes I am tempted to bring it back with me, but I find it better to lay there on the shelves in my old bedroom, the witness of a past I can revisit every time I go home. And this is also part of the comfort it gives me. The best clothes are the ones that are not only clothes.
