Old Team clothing?

What do you guys do with old team clothing after you have left a team? I feel weird riding in it since I'm no longer a member, am I weird for feeling uncomfortable riding in team clothing that I'm no longer apart of anymore? Just wondering what you guys do since I'm sure a few of you have switched between teams before for one reason or another.

Wear it only during night rides with no moon.

I don't have any team clothing, but I guess it would depend on why I left the team. If I left on good terms I'd probably continue to wear it as a reminder of the good times & as a badge of honor. If it was on bad terms, I can always use another rag to help wash my bike, etc.

Guess I'll just go polish my Oldnago.

I just keep wearing them, I mean it's not like I'm pro and signed a contract with that team or teams to wear the gear for a certian time period, I can understand if you did have a contract or were pro, then it'd be different, but I'm not, so if it's not worn out, I just keep wearing it.

I've only ever raced for one team, back when I was a junior about 16 years ago. I've always held onto that and my Empire States Game jersey for sentimental purposes (after all, I earned both through hard work). My old team, Island Racing Club, which hailed from eastern Long Island, is forever alive with me via a bright jersey with late 80s garishness of neon pink and yellow. I actually wear it after all of my other jerseys find thier way into the laundry.

And besides, I'm sure even Mr. Lemond will break out an old ADR or Team Z jersey every now and then...
