Quite a few years ago, my old woodworking teacher from high school, who I had kept in touch with, expressed a desire to get himself a bike. I gave him a complete set of Joe Rocket gear I was no longer using. It wasn't a perfect fit for him, but good enough to get him on a bike in a safe way. He was broke (due to some unfortunate life circumstances) and wouldn't have been able to do it safely otherwise.
Last summer, I rebuilt a CB750 for my buddy who had been storing the bike for 20 years since his first kid was born. I gave him a helmet I was no longer using so his kids could ride with him. Again, not a perfect fit, but close enough to give them some joy.
A lot of clothing, not just riding gear, ends up in the landfill. That's a shame, not just because it's a waste but because all that synthetic material ends up in the food chain. Eventually, humans will all be plastic fantastic.
