Sex and the City will always have a place in John Corbett's heart — and his closet!

In an interview with Glamour published Thursday, Corbett — who played Carrie Bradshaw's love interest Aidan Shaw on the beloved television series — revealed that costume designer Patricia Field let him "keep every item of clothing I ever wore on the show." 

To this day, the 59-year-old actor says he still has Aidan's full wardrobe, "down to the Calvin Klein tighty whities whenever I was in a bathroom scene with Carrie [Bradshaw]."

Another SATC moment that's forever immortalized in his closet? The "white shirt from the episode where Aidan says 'You broke my heart!,' after Carrie tells him she wants to get back together.

"I got everything, and this was expensive stuff! The shoes that I wore were Prada and $700 and I still wear those," he added.

Of course, Corbett isn't the only SATC alum who's held onto their wardrobe. 

Back in 2017, star Sarah Jessica Parker shared that she had "probably 95 percent" of Carrie's wardrobe in an archive. 

"I have it all," she said during a sit-down at Vulture Festival. "I don't touch it or wear it but all of that is really meaningful."

As for her most treasured possession? Just like her character, Parker can't imagine a world without her Carrie nameplate necklace. "I love it and it's tucked away somewhere safe," she said.

In January, Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis confirmed the news of an upcoming HBO Max Sex and the City revival, titled And Just Like That, on Instagram. 

As for how the absence of Samantha Jones will be addressed, HBO Max CCO Casey Bloys previously shared that they're "not trying to re-do the original show."

"They're not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s," Bloys told TVLine in February. 

"They're trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York," Bloys added. "So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you're 30, you may not have when you're 50."
