You got me... I'm in Manhattan, which is the capital of the world for cast-off high-end clothing. Men's clothing in particular seems to be available in great abundance -- you always see racks and racks of Hugo Boss and the like, with just one or two top-notch labels thrown in... all at the same price. (Or, every now and then, someone very wealthy and exactly your size will donate a whole closet full of prime loot...) The stores either don't know what the higher brands are, or don't care if one or two items per rack are at a 99.9% discount. It seems like the trick is to live somewhere where people a) wear that kind of clothing and b) can afford to regularly donate it. Any place in particular you go? I've been to the cluster on E 23rd (Goodwill, Salvation Army, Housing Works) a few times but it's never seemed that great.
