As the year started so terribly, and as this was the offseason we refreshed our Sox-related millinery (that’s hatwear to those who want to be spared a google search) we got thinking about our history of Sox-related clothing purchases. We wondered what was the worst sports-related fashion acquisition we ever made. For us it had to be the Boston Bruins throwback 1926 sweater – not a game jersey, but rather an actual dress-up sweater. It was, in retrospect, awful. We never wore it out. Ever.
So what was the worst clothing item you bought? It doesn’t have to be ugly necessarily, it could just be stupid. Like if when we were an enthusiastic and naive teen we spent hard-earned snow-shoveling dough on a Matt Young shirt, or went out and blew our long-guarded Bar Mitzvah savings on a game-worn Edgar Renteria protective cup.
