Could someone please let me know if these sentences are grammatically correct and natural?.
I am basicly trying to say I have been wearing this before before you existed.

1) I have been wearing this type of clothes long before you existed.

2) I have been wearing this type of clothes since before you existed.

3) I have been wearing this type of clothes even before you existed.

Thanks in Advannce

I like "before you were [even] born" and "before you [even] existed" equally.

Also, note the correct spelling of "basically".
