Can anyone suggest a good spot or flea market in LA for antique mens stuff ?
Near Santa Monica would be great.. Havnt found many great thrift shops or anything around here since moving here.

there are some alright thrifts in culver city and inglewood, some more in orange county and riverside for some reason. i used to go to a bunch there, the valley, and in east la but they've always been picked through the last few years. i'd say just go to a re-sale shop like wasteland or crossroads. we have a bunch of those. you won't pay thrift store prices, but you'll find good deals. you'll find a lot of men's stuff in weho, obviously. pasadena can be good too, and if you have patience try the rose bowl market.

patience and the rose bowl flea market definitely. i'd say it's worth the drive out from Santa Monica at least once.

If you're looking for clothes, Buffalo Exchange on La Brea between SM and Melrose is pretty good. Several used stores on Melrose (or what used to be Melrose. Wow, has that street faltered during the downturn). Several good places on Melrose for silver rings/bracelets/etc. They're all between LaBrea and Fairfax.
