I'm not sure what it is about worn t-shirts that makes them far superior to brand new versions. However, I know this is indeed true - especially when it comes to sleeping in them.
Take for example Peter's Heitz Cellar t-shirt. From the tattered neckline to the thinning material, it's one of my favorite t-shirts to steal from him on occasion. In 1993, Kathy Heitz gave him this t-shirt when he was visiting in Napa. Now, 20 years later, this worn shirt still pairs well with a glass of Cabernet. - Allie Merrick
