What item of clothing do you have which is a conversation starter?

And I mean one you wear often, not a special party piece, like Chuffy's red rubber pants, though he might wear them often, I don't know.

For example, I have a T-shirt I must have bought some 25 years ago now which is from the Clachaig Inn in Glencoe. The number of times it's started an interesting conversation is too often to mention. When it finally dies, I'll have to get another one.

So what's your conversation starter?


TdF T-shirt.

...And yes I have been asked more than once if I've ever done it:rolleyes:

My Foska Marmite jersey usually gets a remark or two.

I used to have a t-shirt my sister got me in NZ, which had a cartoon progression of 'how to prepare a kiwi', in which a dead kiwi morphed into a kiwi fruit, and the slices were 'revealed' in the last frame. People would be talking to me, and then their gaze would drop to the t-shirt and they'd stare for a bit, and then laugh.

I assume it was the t-shirt, and not my chest.

I have a vintage leather box bag with tooled flowers on it, girls often comment on it, but weirdly when I was having my bag searched at The Academy in Manchester the security guard started going on about it, then called his mate over to discuss it. They reckon it's Spanish.
