Default Old Vest or New Vest, that is the question

This past season I scored a new Patagonia SST for a deeply discounted price and because my ancient Patagonia waders gave out and I got some Simms G3s I look like I just stepped out of the fly shop.

The last holdout of my 1990's vintage gear is my very faded and worn Patagonia vest. Last summer I found the exact vest on eBay from a fisherman that purchased it new in the 90's but never used it. I scored it for a mere 30 bucks.

So the questions is- Keep the vest that is near thread bare and near death or use the shiny new one regardless of the loss of character and "experienced" aura.
