And as for why--how many freaking coats/jackets does one person need? It's starting to feel a little like I'm hoarding. The thing is though when you see a great jacket or coat for $3.50 that otherwise might sell for 10 times that in a vintage boutique--or that might have an equivalent new retailing for hundreds--it is impossible to pass up.
Dunno, guess every man has to decide when it's 'too much'. Great vintage finds, esp. cheap, are by their nature really hard to pass up.
Now, if that was your twentieth pair of $600 crocodile loafers, I might agree you have a "problem". Otherwise, vintage stuff ain't gonna loose it's value. I'm just jealous, actually.
