A daughter has taken to social media to share just why her father constantly wears the same 20-year-old shirt.
The story behind it is heartbreaking as she came across a photo album amongst her late grandfather’s belongings. Inside the album, she found a photo of her dad donning the same polo shirt he has wears over and over again!
In the photo, her father is spotted with his beloved wife who passed away from cancer 18 years ago. It is believed that the photo was taken during their honeymoon.
His daughter wrote on Twitter: ‘When that polo shirt gets a hole in it, he carefully sews it back together. He wears it for any special occasion, be it a work study event or a trip out with the family.’
Since sharing the post, it has received over 82,000 retweets and has made users around the world become overwhelmed with emotion.
She later wrote on Twitter in Japanese: ‘I always thought he was so 'uncool' for continuously wearing the same old polo shirt but now I think that I have to look after memories too. I will never throw away anything important of my parents or grandparents.’
