Been in las vegas and have not thrifted in this city. I did googlemaps search and saw a Savers and a goodwill around the Fremont street area, but did not venture since that particular area looks kinda iffy outside the casinos. I also don’t have a rent car. My guess is that the thrifts don’t have quality stuff, but I could be corrected. I’ve been staying on the strip and the only locals that wear suits seem to be the pit bosses (Todays Man) and the guys that work retail in the mall (CK slim fit black suits). The closest thing to high end menswear I've seen was at this new shopping area/center at the bottom of the Aria and Cosmopolitan casinos: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Strolled through there and B Cuccinelli, E. Zegna and Kiton have stores there . I think rich folks fly in here, gamble, and pick up some quality stuff and leave.
Did ok gambling wise and soaked up on the free booze and cheap eats here. I’ll be heading to Texas to visit my folks then will return home. Sorry about delay in responding to pms as wifi at my hotel was somewhat limited.
Have fun! I love Vegas. Great shopping and I love the hotels. Not a gambler, though. We went last summer and stayed at the Vdara, the new hotel right next to the City Center. Loved it!
Haven't had any luck thrifting in Vegas, ever. I did have a very lucky shopping stint back in Dec of 2007.
Blast from the past: 12/27/07
Not exactly thrift finds, but great deals none-the-less. Was on vacation in Vegas for the past four days and hit up a lot of stores. I wasn't expecting any sales being that it's Vegas, but I did come across some great things. They offered to ship my golf bags home via FedEx for $15 as I didn't want to chance them on the plane. 1) Blue button-down Barba shirt. $95 down from $295 from Baradelli or something like that. 2) Leather Muholland Brothers golf bag. $95 + $15 to ship it home down from $1,500. Mandalay Bay Casual 3) Leather/Navy Canvas Muholland Brothers golf bag. $56 +$15 Shipping down from unknown price. From MBC as well 4) Leather/Tan Canvas Muholland Brothers take-down rifle hard case. $23 from $315. From MBC 5) Soft leather/tan Muholland Brothers canvas rifle case for my father. $23 from $315.

Reeeeally regret not picking up the rest of the Mulholland Bros stuff, even though it was just smaller items like golf ball cases and soft canvas rifle cases. Flipped the full leather golf bag for $700 and the canvas/leather one for $500-ish.
