The problem with women's clothes is that the fashion changes so damn swiftly that by the time anything hits the thrifts it is rarely still desired. Men's clothes on the other hand, rarely change. Hence why we find vintage pieces that would work without a hitch.

You don't need fashion knowledge for that. You just need to take a stroll through The Bay someday.

Or just start with thrifting for yourself first. Learn what's good and what isn't, and build your knowledge up. You aren't going to find that ridonkulous grail item that you can flip for 2000% profit on eBay that quickly.

Women’s clothing, he admits, is tough, mainly because styles change so quickly that items are out of fashion by the time they hit the secondhand market.

This weekend (everything from thrift stores):

—Cantarelli for Golden Fleece suit (found some holes in the pants when I got home)
—Samuelson SC, brown and blue glen plaid
—Canali SC, cashmere houndstooth with windowpane

—NWT Barbour Airedale. My first Barbour outerwear find:


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


—Another first for me: Arc'teryx jacket:


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


—One more first: NWT Pantherellas



Passed on some Canali and Zegna shirts, J Brand jeans, and made-in-USA Patagonia fleeces that didn't fit.

That's what I am trying to do to start - problem is I am one difficult person to fit in the first place haha.   But basically my plan is to just buy what I want for me - unless I am 100% certain I have something nice.  I am not especially after things to flip right now, I can make money later.  I just gotta learn it all first.  I've read a couple hundred pages of this thread already... over the next few weeks hopefully I'll have more of it done, and in turn, some better ideas of what to look for.

Is this legit?  They all look, literally, unworn.  If those Sanfords/Strands are size 12D, HOLLATCHABOY.

Maybe I was subconsciously channeling you? I had read the article but it comes more out of my better half's mouth. I have challenged her to find stuff for herself whenever she comes with me thrifting. She has very nice taste but ALWAYS walks out empty handed. Her responses are always that everything is outdated. I have to say that she has a far better "eye" than I do and I am glad she prefers to hit the mens aisles with me.

 

Here are her finds from a recent trip. What did I find? Nothing.

 

Zegna casual shirt

700

 

Pendleton Blazer

 

700

 

 

And she found this. I have yet to see anything like it. It's an orphan and we couldn't find the pants. Best part? Half off.

 

700

 

700

 

 

 

 

Can anyone confirm whether this is real? The tag looks slightly off to me.

700

 

 

Oh and this is a GA label ive never seen before. The store wanted a crazy amount for the suit so I passed. Should I have gone back? I know the "black label" is the good label but this one is different.

700
