Just turned 25 here, been at it since I was 20.
32. Only came to the thrift/#menswear thing in the last year, when I needed to start making a bigger impression at work without making a big impression on my wallet. Seems to be working out thus far.
I met b.b. he gave me a guitar pick and let me touch lucille
I'm closer to 40 than I am 20.
Musically I hate most of the stuff people my age love. Can't stand most of the 70s touchstones (unless you count Can and Kraftwerk) and am a huge fan of minimal electronic music from most eras.
But... was also in a band that played with My Morning Jacket and The Twilight Singers.
Rawk! Or something.
My dad listened to Kraftwerk all throughout my childhood. I got a chance to take him to see them the last time they were in the states. About 4 years ago if I remember correctly. For some odd reason, on their 5 city tour, one of those was Milwaukee, on 4/20 no less!!! My dad was dancing his ass off! Needless to say a great time was had by all, those dudes still have it in them to bring the house down.
P.S., he's 62 and still knows how to party.
damn! i looked for about 4 years for a bed setup like that. eventually wound up with a couple of heywood wakefield nightstands.
man, in southern california, the market is crazy for them. first it was mission, then cal-modern (heywood wakefield, etc), now danish is through the roof.
and i could be your dad! 57.
38 in years...somewhere between 17-21 maturity wise though.......
Actually started thrifting & selling on Ebay @ 10yrs ago, sold used books (as a hobby..) from thrifts, book sales, etc., for 3 or 4 yrs until i just got too busy w/ work, kids, etc...occasionally would scan the clothes but usually only bought NWT stuff for myself, never for flipping...
still usually browse the shelves when Im in there, but I get more enjoyment finding a really great piece of menswear, even if not my size, that some obscure text about something Im not interested in.... but if i find a decently flippable book, I definitely pick it up....
28 and started thrifting a few months ago.
Voted for the Gerald Ford, Robert Dole president/vice president ticket....
My senior year in high school:
