Thread: How long do clothes get worn out in wilderness?

    Default How long do clothes get worn out in wilderness?

    How long do we wear out clothes in wilderness? I heard that your attire will be easily worn out in wilderness while survival. The clothes I mean are our daily apparel such as cotton T-shirt, silk skirts, silk dresses, cashmere jacket coat, shoes and so on. I saw some movies depicting people with shabby clothing after survival. However, some were not. Which one is more reasonable?

    Movies are not necessarily a good source of information. They can however provoke some thought or questions (as they have done with you).

    It depends on a lot of factors. Surviving in a big city......oh, say like Taiwan would be much different that surviving in a tropical jungle or in the mountains. What specifically are you looking for?

    I survived in Taiwan once. My clothes lasted about fives hours then we got into the hotel room... Oh, wait...never mind. I think I misunderstood the question. Yeah, what Crash said.

    I'm afraid that I can't be of help. It's been ages since I wore a silk skirt and heels.

    No, if it involved silk and heels it wasn't me. I'm strictly into shabby.

    Shabby is slimming, or so I'm told. Maybe that was sliming, I don't know, it's so confusing.

    You couldn't prove it by me. It started with a bottle of Kaoliang then Max showed up. They say what happens in Taiwan stays in Taiwan so that's all I'm sayin'.

    Well I've never been to Taiwan.
    But I've been to Oklahoma.
    They tell me I was born there.
    But I really don't remember.
    In Oklahoma
    Not Taiwananoa
    What does it matter?
