    Yes but in the last 5 years it’s just gone downhill because of resellers. Most of my stuff is second hand and you can’t tell besides obvious faded/dated graphic tees. You have to keep going every day to get their new stock before people get to it. The most recent things I found were narco style button up shirts for a vacation i’m taking. I found 5 pairs of brand new levi jeans in December that was pretty cool.

      Thrift stores are shit now, at least if you’re a guy
      >men tend to wear their clothes until they’re completely worn and then throw them out, so selection is incredibly limited
      >wannabee "side hustle" niglets scouring thrift stores for anything good to try and resell on ebay
      >dirt cheap chinkshit brands like Zara becoming even more popular, alongside somehow even cheaper chinkshit brands like shien

      I feel you. Most of the stuff I now find in local thrift stores has been on display for more than a year, most of the stuff now has holes in it and also stains, while prices keep getting jacked. Can’t even find a good silk necktie, unless it’s 15 centimeter wide stingray-shaped ones. Didn’t use to be like this.

    no all the second hand stores around seattle started looking up the value of all their donations and selling them on ebay instead of in store if they’re worth more than $50 after covid. thousands of chinese resellers pick through the scraps that remain. the last time i went to value village i was in a $6000 fit not including hebrewelry getting followed around by security thinking i was going to steal a $8 pair of clarks.

      I did visit all my cities thrifstores once a week this month, part of my neet weekly regime
      so far, all the thriftstores have shit range of choice for men compared to women, like 1/10 of the store is for men, it is always either large, outdated jackets with shit colors/patterns/etc, zara/h&m polyester garbage like mentionned, or even worse, groceryshop brands like the equivalent of costco for our country here

      you can find silk ties for cheap, but even pocketsquares get hoarded or some shit, yesterday I did my tour and there was like one ONE hecking pocketsquare that was double the price of the ties because "muh SILK" apparently, whereas the ties also were pure silk but seems to not sell I presume, or the owners did not check the tags

      there is absolutely no way in hell, after all those tries visiting them, someone gets all the good shit, week after week. I strongly suspect the owners, or the employees to have learned about brands/materials/etc and hoard all the items before reselling it for more either on internet or hand to hand. UNLESS I have absolutely 0 luck and the sudehustling, podcastlistening subhumans also have a weekly routine that appears to be just before mine, I dont believe it at ALL

      the only shop that does not have this problem is one that is just attached to a government building giving food for poor Black folk here. The shop resells donations directly and the workers are old volunteers ladies that clearly have no hecking clue what fashion is outside of naming the piece by its name, here you can find some nice bargains but needs pure luck and timing.

      It is funny because near the city where I come from, it is small and way less populated, and the only thriftstore I visited had good stuff, got a lacoste crewneck sweater for 15euros for example, but the exact same thriftstore name, in my big city here, have absolutely 0 heckING CHOICE and you are lucky to see a real brand in the sea of noname and polyester shit, it’s absurd

        Basically same situation here you have to find the thrift store in your city that white resellers are afraid to go to. You never see another white person in it ever. The one that has been a small goldmine for me is right near MLK Jr Blvd. It’s actually very reasonably priced on everything but the only things overpriced are nike, air jordan brand, and NBA jerseys.

        Yeah, being a thrift store manager is a guaranteed stream of good items to your depop. Many just have their own online storefronts connected to the store, too.

        Women’s clothing is 90% of all good second hand stores/options, absolutely. It’s very annoying. There’s one good store here with a huge amount of shirts, jackets and suits though; found a few decent pickups. Eton shirts for $10, one Isaia shirt in perfect condition for $5 right next to some Hackett shirts for $15 because it’s a brand the store workers recognize, it’s whacky shit.

        The trick seems to be knowing either how to spot quality via the stitching, handwork, buttons etc or being able to regonize good brands that most people don’t.

        I suppose this situation is generalized. I find more shit on vinted nowadays. Men’s section is so shit and limited I’ve got a couple of women’s jackets/shirts cause I end up browsing the women’s section for better shit.

    I made a tour around all 2nd hand stores in my city and it was all trash. Granted, I didn’t visit during the new arrivals time when old hags kill eachother to enter the stores. I did, however, get an amazing deal online. Not only the coat fits perfectly, it was super cheap, good condition and the seller gave me a bonus decent quality dress shirt that I needed.
    Other than that I shop in outlet stores.

        Old money prefers high quality second hand(inherited) clothes cause it’s virtue signaling that they can take care of assets and not waste money. My petit bourgeois grandparents used to know people who would have their servants wear their new clothes till they looked a bit worn in. Nouveau riche consumption is cringe as usual.

    yeah almost all the clothes i get are second hand. theres a really good local thrift place near me that i go to a lot and i also use depop/poshmark. new clothes are so expensive

    With the rise of resellers, secondhand stores are just glorified dumping ground for clothes that people want to get rid of, and hardly any discount. All the cool vintage shit is on grailed for $1000

    in my eastern euro country, there are people going on the television breakfast shows to show off their thrifted gucci bags, and the only way i can explain the thrifting situation right now is: a bubble
    now every 35 year old neet woman has become a reseller, the stores are jacking prices up while offering shittier and shittier clothes, the resellers are DESPERATE to make a profit, so they pick up every thing that has the slightest chance to sell, leaving almost nothing that a normal person would wear
    to be honest, it’s just better to buy shit on ebay, as the prices are so low due to such high competition among resellers

        >"Cellulitis is a deep bacterial infection of the skin that causes redness, swelling, and pain. Cellulitis isn’t usually spread from person to person. "
        … so allegedly not contagious, but why risk it?

    I used to enjoy it but the bedbug risk makes it not worth combing through the ever-shittier selection. They dry clean the clothes but not all the other random shit that’s sold in the same shop.
