Anna, Brooklyn, NY

Who: Anna, 24
What: cotton/poly blend (tag cut out). neck and sleeves cut.
When: a few years ago.
Where: my brother gave it to me for Christmas. I told him I wanted it, so I wasn't very surprised.
Why: I grew up in Schenectady, NY, which is known as the Electric City because General Electric used to be headquartered there. I cut the neck and pinned the sleeves one day because I wanted to look cute but tough. I sometimes think I succeeded. I like wearing it because people ask me if I'm from Schenectady, and if they are too, then it's a guaranteed ten-minute conversation. I have a lot of hometown pride.
