post #83071 of 138728

It seems like most people here are going to stores that are generally priced lower than where I am. Any sport coats at GW or similar start at 9 bucks at least, where at VV they're 10-20. The only places where they're $5 is at volunteer community thrift stores, but then I see someone posting about spending $1.90 on a SC, is the PNW generally higher priced for thrift stores? I'm curious how much everyone pays on average for specific items. 

 

TLDR: How much do you guys usually pay for sport coats?

Your experience is similar to mine (I'm in Austin). Sport coats start at $9.99. We also have GW Boutiques here where SCs may be as much as $19.99. Haven't seen a suit for more than $49.99, but that was a nice flannel vintage Polo in great shape, however I also got an HF, recent, for 24.99. but yes, I'm always astounded when I hear someone on here say they got a SC for like 3 bucks. Never seen any coat in my town for less than $10.

Prices here in the Minneapolis area are about the same. Sportcoats/blazers base price is $8.99. Suits are $8.99 for the jacket, $5.99 for the pants. Shirts are $6.99 and ties are $3.99. The thing that sucks is everything is individually tagged which makes it easier to mark up anything and everything. I like how SoCal Goodwills are set up with mostly flat prices and little colored plastic tags.

I'm sure the jacket Easy got was either on a steep discount day or at a small local shop. Can't see anything being that cheap anywhere really these days unless it's on a day before that color tag stuff gets pulled to be bailed up or something.

I routinely pay over and around 20 for jackets on average. If lucky, half price day.


Btw looking for a waxed Barbour preferably women 8 or better 10, would be men's 38-40

Where do they have those fill up a bag and pay a set price sales? I have only heard of them and never seen one. Urban Myth

Ian: The wool pants are Swedish military (three crowns). Model name is M/39. They are about the warmest pants ever and I quite like them. We can get them for about 15-20 bucks from military surplus, since they were made to survive just about anything (and we really don't have moths).

You guys are lucky. Here in Sydney many of my local spots have shirts starting at $15 & suits at $100+. Highest price i've seen for a suit has been $399 for an old old Armani.

Yeah, this is basically exactly the price scale here (tho 3 for ties). And I hate the places that are like 50+% individually priced items.

The Goodwill chain here in the Twin Cities does this once or twice a year. Fill a bag for a certain price though I forget what the price was. They give you these small-ish paper bags made specifically for them (have Goodwill printed on the side) though. Smaller than your average paper grocery bag if I recall correctly. The cashier crammed so much in there the last time the bag split open. She let it slide though since I'm there just about every day.

The prices I quoted are for Goodwill which is the biggest chain with 20+ stores over the metro area. Unique Thrift, Savers and ARC Value Village are pricier. Suits from 24.99 up to $100+. Ties from $8 to $25. Sportcoats at $15+. It's ridiculous.

The Goodwill store that Dahl5yankees mentioned the other day put out 4 Armani Collezioni suits out a month or so ago for $74.99 for the jacket and $49 for the pants. Each time it came around for that color to go half price (then $1.49 a couple days later), they'd pull them and re-tag them. They sat around forever. Stupid.....
