English term or phrase: old-fasioned stuff...
I need one and the same Greek term to describe a variety of old-fasioned stuff:

an old truck ("a truck from the past")
an old-fashioned camera
old-fasioned clothes (actually, medieval costumes)

The accommodating "pepalaiomeno" is a tad archaic. On the other hand I am not happy with options suggested to me, such as: allis epoxis, kseperasmeno, palias modas. My problem is that I need one term to cover all cases.

Thank you all!
Fiona

Thank you Costas, and thank you all for your VERY helpful remarks. My problem all along has been that words like "kseperasmeni" and "palias modas" were proposed as appropriate to describe a camera...

THANKS AGAIN!

agree  Joanne Panteleon: ξεπερασμένο, παλαιάς τεχνολογίας (for machinery, cameras and machinery etc.)... and παλιομοδίτικο, definitely for clothes! it all depends to what exactly you refer, Fiona... you couldn't possibly refer to a truck as "ξεπερασμένο"... it doesn't sound good!
