    For example, your first gloves, your first muay thai shorts, your first gi...? Do you still keep them or did you throw them away?

    Not really. But then again I've never received a pair as a gift, or I figure if I had a pair of Flores or whatever made specifically for my own hands, maybe I would.

    Nope. Gave my first ever pair of gloves away and left my first pair of Thai shorts on the bus by accident. I still have the handwraps from my first fight, but I wouldn't be upset if I lost those either.

    ^ can relate. I take mine on long walks on the beach. Then I rub that bitch down with the finest saddle soap while whispering Shakespeare into her vent holes.

    Some of it I have and will keep although it never gets used anymore and has been swapped for other items. I still have KOFightgear gloves that I must have bought 12 years or so ago packaged up in a box....

    I'm only new at this game but yea I take pride in my gear and really admire the workmanship that went into them and the hours that I've put in with them. I mean as the years go on I won't be hanging on to all kinds of old worn out stinky gear but I think I will keep my first gloves and boxing boots. Like someone said maybe the wraps from an ammy fight if I ever take one, as a reminder.

    I feel surprisingly attached to my shitty boil and bite mouthguard.

    I know I should pony up and get a properly fitted one, but it's been there through the beginning, preventing me from biting my tongue, or smashing my teeth in- making me sound like I have marbles in my mouth when I try to talk with it.

    Attached in that I like the quality, of my only pair of Winning gloves for example. But no not emotionally or whatever.

    All the custom made Winning stuff because it means you know what quality gear is like. I'm not parting with that stuff for as long as possible.

    I am, but I don't mind giving some away especially when i seldom use a particular gear.
