    As the question says. Is it wrong/weird to wear clothes that belonged to someone who has passed away, even if its to remember them etc?


    Edit: ok not bad luck. But would it be considered weird??

    I don't think so. I mean, they don't need them any more, so why not make use of them or give them to charity?

    I think wearing a dead person's clothes in order to remember them would constitute the "weird", tbh.

    I don't think so. I'd imagine some stuff people buy from charity shops will have belonged to someone who is now dead.

    I'd keep the stuff but wouldn't wear it...that would be too weird.

    Surely it's enough just to keep them, why would you want to wear them??

    I honestly don't think it's wierd. It's a nice way of having their memory continue on even after they are gone in my opinion. Never heard of any superstitions or anything about it either...

    Maybe a bit weird if you knew them, but many who wear vintage clothes are wearing clothing which belonged to someone who is now dead.

    I don't think its bad luck. Other than maybe a piece of jewellery I wouldn't wear one though.

    Not at all. After my nan passed away, my mum gave me some of her nice jumpers- they're lovely and warm.

    We would have thrown them away otherwise, and I'm sure my nan would prefer that someone gets some use out of them!

    I didn't mean it like that. More for comfort and reassurance or whatever.

    Don't think so, charity shops sometimes get donations of clothes belonging to people who died recently.

    One of my friends once made a cake and said "The jam in this is the last my grandma made." Completely freaked me out and I refused to eat a dead woman's jam. Wearing clothes of someone who has died is less weird than that.
