I run a tiny vintage menswear company. AMA about effective thrifting and getting the most out of pre-owned clothing.
I make a living selling vintage clothing that generally falls within the r/mfa vein.I’d love to answer any questions/share any expertise about effective thrifting and used clothing buying. AMA!My personal expertise is affordable and wearable casual clothing rather than the hyped or collectible. I’ve posted a few guides here on MFA that were well received:Guide to Buying Vintage Levi’s Trucker JacketsGuide to Buying Vintage Flannel ShirtsGuide to Buying Harrington JacketsI do AMAs here every once in a while; sorta fun for me. Here are some links to the past ones:OneTwoSome FAQs:Best Finds? A Schott A2, a pair of 50s Levi 701s, and a pair of nearly-new Alden cap-toes in my size. In 1,000+ thrift stores visits, that’s one Schott and two pairs of Big E Levi’s.Does location matter? The location of the store doesn’t make a huge difference; moreso the management and pricing habits. You can find, say, a vintage Brooks Brothers shirt most places. But it will be $4 one place and $14 another.Do you feel shame? I feel no shame about buying a lot of used clothing. There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of professional resellers in the country, and charity clothing shops exist to fund the charity’s programming, not provide cheap clothing to the less fortunate.If you want to find a specific piece, you’ll get it much faster by buying and flipping a few things and purchasing it used on eBay than you will waiting for it turn up at a thrift store. You’ve gotta thrift with an open mind.There are many people in the world way more knowledgeable and professional at this than I am. If you’re looking to learn more or get into the game a little, I recommend hopping on Instagram and finding a few stores and sellers whose aesthetic matches yours. Follow what they do and learn from it.

Does anyone else feel that obsessing over clothes’ fit leads to boring outfits?

Does anyone else feel that obsessing over clothes’ fit leads to boring outfits?
Much like others on this sub, I’ve done the minimalist look and enjoyed how clean and polished the result was. Lately though, I noticed that my closet was overrun with solid color t-shirts, simple pants, plain inoffensive shoes and other articles with no standout qualities.The most redeeming quality of each item I owned was that it fit well and it could be swapped into multiple outfits, giving it a low cost-per-wear 😴Now as silk Hawaiian shirts, cropped wide-leg pants and cargos come back into fashion I’ve realized that obsessing over fit naturally leads to overly simple outfits. When unique patterns and colors are a top priority I’ll accept a fit that is “good enough”. Conversely, how much easier is it to find a pair of navy chinos that fits perfectly than to find a pair of colorful cords in a beautiful shade of green that just happen to fit perfectly?As I applied this fit-first mentality to every purchase I developed a wardrobe that looked composed and body-complimentary, but ultimately unspectacular.

I feel like a middle-aged man even though I’m 21 years old, and I’m starting to dress like one

Academically, I was always a little ahead on the timeline for my age. This had ended up with me being 21 years old and currently in my 3rd year at my company, and the dress code is suit when meeting clients (didn’t do much of this but new position will have me more client-facing) and business casual when just working on deals (slacks, button up, vest). I just moved to a new position in the company, and pretty much everyone I interact with is, at their youngest, in their early 30s. I’m the butt of a lot of jokes about my age which I don’t mind at all, but the thing is I’ve began hanging out with my new coworkers after work (usually get off around 7 on Friday/Saturday now), and I just feel so out of it. I’m trying to fit in, but it’s hard. The first time I met them for drinks on a Friday night, I showed up in some ripped black jeans, suede Chelsea boots, black t-shirt and a coat. I looked so out of place, as of course they were all wearing the banker outfit.Every time I leave the apartment I’m in business clothes. I can’t remember the last time I was in public in anything less than dress pants / button up, and it’s beginning to wear me down. I’m in NYC, so it’s pretty cold right now, but I’d love to hear some suggestions on how to express some originality while still looking semi-professional when I’m off the clock.
