Jeans, flannel, leather etc. Should be able to find some great pieces.

If you live in an area where there are old mines, you may want to mine for old clothing. @Fueco is in the right area, I think. I know some guys from Colorado who look in old mines for old clothing left inside. They get $300 for a half-deteriorated 1910's work-shirt at auction, $500 for jeans with no legs, etc.

Suits, sportcoats, hats too. Most folks out there don't wear them often anymore, but they did 70 years ago, just like everyone else.

I live in Reno,Nevada and I find some nice CM stuff but if I go to shops in more rural parts of the state, I look for vintage beer stuff, straight razors and war stuff.

@Nataku I have talked to some of the old timers at a couple antique spots here that go down into the old mines and find amazing things. It should also be said that it is an extremely dangerous endeavor and if you're going to go into an old mine, you had better have your shit together and know what you're doing

I was in Missoula two summers ago, the thrifts were mostly stocked with the usual Stafford, but there were some gems to be found. Especially in the vintage outdoor gear market. One place I went to had all kinds of vintage backpacks, boots, tents etc.
