54 éve hordja kedvenc kardigánját a néni:)


Azt nem mondjuk, hogy nem vette le azóta, de 54 éve viseli előszeretettel kedvenc ruhadarabját. 

A SWANSEA woman’s love affair with her cardigan shows no signs of unravelling.

Everyone has something that they can’t bear to get rid of — and for Pam Hopkins it has been her treasured cardigan, which she has kept for 54 years. The yellow, green and brown cosy jumper has definitely stood the test of time, as it has remained in pristine conditionMrs Hopkins, from Llwyn Crwn Road, Llansamlet, said it was bought for her by her mother-in-law as Christmas present 54 years ago.

“It has never lost a button and is still intact since it was given to me,” she said. “I was thrilled when she gave it to me. It is lovely. It is cosy and warm. I think it has worn quite well over the years. I still wear it after all these years. I don’t know where it is from but it could have been from David Evans department or from Lewis Lewis which was on High Street. Years ago you would just get all the posh shops.”

The 75-year-old, who has four children and eight grandchildren, said her family often tease her about her aging cardigan.

“They laugh at it,” she said. “They just think it is old-fashioned.”

And to prove she still wears the cardigan — Mrs Hopkins has unearthed some pictures of her wearing it.

“The picture was taken a few years ago,” she said. “After I lost my husband, I was just clearing things about and I came across the picture. I thought that I needed to keep it.”
