Agree, you just have to know what's ok, what's ridonkulous (I have now incorporated this into my SF vocabulary), and what is just plain crap. A few pages back someone said he heard other flippers getting excited over Pierre Cardin. Don't be that guy.
Never settle for anything polyester (it's one of my rules, unless it's a rain coat, then it's different). I made a lot of mistakes when I first started thrifting, like buying a few fake Hermes ties, not knowing what can be tailored, and buying Christian Dior crap, just because it's Christian Dior.
