Re-Shirt is an Austrian-basedcompany that resells second-hand t-shirts. What sets them apart fromother online boutiques is that every shirt comes with a personal story.Owners submit the unique history pertinent to the garment theydonate—often the circumstances behind buying it, or a memorable eventwhile wearing it. The Re-Shirt philosophy is rooted in the question, "Do products last longer if you know their history?" The idea seems promising. Like a table made with reclaimed wood from some distant castle, a story can equate to desirability.

Once a shirt goes through the system, it's marked with a Re-Shirtcode. Stories can be added onto the shirt's history, perhaps increasingits value.
