True vintage coutre aside, why does anyone purchase used clothing. Forum members share a pursuit of style and fashion. Most love a bargain, but I have to draw the line at used clothing. If my own father had a great overcoat, maybe I would have it altered to fit me. But I just can't see trying on someone else's used trousers or shoes. I don't care how often a garment has been cleaned, someone elses "boys" have been in there for who knows how many wearings. If the previous owner was particularly fastidious, those pants may never have been cleaned before you got them. Yadda, yadda "Bespoke" this, or hand-crafted that. Really how many men out there are so weatlhy that they buy a very expensive garment, wear it twice and send it on to Goodwill or the Salvation Army or Joe's Consignment shop? I guess I am just too picky.
