My step dad had a lot of his clothes from the 1970s. He was wearing an original cream color leisure suit at their wedding. I remember coming over to visit my mom one day only to find her going through his closet. Apparently she’d wait until he was out on the road for his truck driving job, pick a couple of clothing items she didn’t like of his, throw it away, and buy something new for him she did like. A friend of hers liked the idea and tried it on her husband, but she had to make sure he was still out on the road when the garbage man came. Otherwise her husband would dig through the trash to get his clothes back.
