Prince urges people to wear old clothes

London: Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, has urged people to wear more old and recycled clothes, and natural fabrics like him so as to help reduce the world`s carbon footprint and halt climate change. In an article for this month`s `Vogue` magazine, he wrote about his passion for reusing and repairing things

"On the whole, the older some things are, the more comfortable and familiar they become; they can even be adapted to look new in a different context.

"Someone has been imaginative enough to make cuff links out of the previous engine from my 40-year-old Aston Martin and to sell them in aid of my trust for young people.

"I even have shoes made from leather salvaged from an 18th century wreck. They are totally indestructible and will see me out," the Prince wrote.
