post #52006 of 110318

anyone know of any good thrift shops in the Baltimore area?  I've struck out and found junk at most of the places around here and most seem to be geared towards women and kid clothes.

Out of curiosity, how much time do you spend thrifting, and how many stores do you go to?

I probably spend 10-12 hours a week, and I might find 1-3 items during that same week. Sometimes, the thrift gods are smiling on me, and I might find a half-dozen items in a week - but 99% of what I see is crap. I have better luck at some consignment shops - I find better items, at 10x to 50x thrift pricing.

I do have a friend in LA who has superb luck - she finds Aquascutum or CdG or their equivalent every week. But that's LA, where the stores receive 1000+ items every day, and she goes to a half dozen stores at least once a week, sometimes more frequently.

In other words, you are probably already shopping at the "good thrift shops."

The label just does not look Hugo Boss to me. How come it is in three quality leagues above the Hugo Boss found in department stores?
I am erring towards considering that this is a separate brand. I cannot read the writing though - so any of you chaps that can read that font, let me know wink.gif
Oh yes - from the tag, name the suit maker? Tag does not look like anything I am familiar with.
Would like some help ID'ing it just for curiosity sake.


 

Nice! I made the mistake of leaving one of these behind last year. I also came across a shirt earlier this year that stayed because the stripes and color combo was too Graham/Bugatchi.

One of my favorite things about thrift stores is seeing the brands that they decide are worth more than others. Usually its a lot of low to mid level stuff like Club Monaco or Gap which the person who does the pricing obviously views as being worth a lot more.

I see ridiculously marked up Burberry items in thrift shops all the time, including really old Burberrys branded items.  A few weeks ago I saw an old Burberrys branded women's lined trench coat for $125.  I don't know who would buy that, even when they have a 50% off sale.

Morons.

 

I wonder how long that'll sit there.

 

I also wonder how long it'll be before they have to start hiring Loss Prevention and start spending a shitload of money to combat theft. This sort of pricing can only attract thieves and trust me, Thrift Stores are such an easy target.

I was just thinking the same thing actually. Since they get everything for free you would think their main goal would be to get it sold as fast as possible to free up space for more new merchandise. Instead someone has decided that they don't like the idea of someone getting too much of a deal on something that was initially worth more money so it will sit there until someone comes along and decides they want it but wont pay $50 for it so they just rip the tag off, put it on and walk out of the store and now the Goodwill doesn't make anything on it.

They paid the same price for the Burberry shirt as they paid for their Old Navy shirts which is $0 so pricing them both at the exact same amount means they make the same amount of profit on them. It would make sense if their regular shirt price was $5 and they made that particular one cost $9 or something like that but asking $50 for it seems so ridiculous.
