>>10493814 Someone suggested I go to the goodwill on the upper east side (I live in Manhattan) and I'm really excited to try it. So maybe go to the richer areas of where you live I guess and try looking at thrift stores there
>>10493814 Just look through everything and you'll be surprised every once in a while. If you can sew you have a lot more options. I usually look for stuff that fits waist and shoulders, then choose based on fabric.
>>10493814 >How do i properly thrift? go all the fucking time. you're much more likely to find something if you stop in like.. twice a week. or once a week. basically don't expect to walk into the thrift store once every three months and walk out with a bunch of great shit. it takes vigilance. go to multiple stores, also. after awhile you'll get an idea of which thrift has the best selection/prices
also, know what to look for. lots of people shit themselves when they see a designer they recognize before taking the time to assess whether it's a diffusion line or even whether it's a worthwhile garment in the first place. pay close attention to fabrics, be on the lookout for nice old fleece.. a shit ton of old sweatshirts are good quality made in the USA shit.
learning to sew/alter clothes would help a lot. you could literally pick up any pair of pants reasonably close to your size and tailor them into something awesome. at that point, the thrift store is basically a vintage textile rack, and your options are limitless. i'm working on learning to sew right now myself.
>>10493841 everyone says this shit but i've personally never found a correlation between "expensive area" and "good thrift." does anyone know any goodwill/salvation army employees? i think the items go to a central area for sorting but i could be wrong
>>10493946 where you live has nothing to do with it. if you can find items you like, it's worth it. it sounds like your question would be better phrased as "is it worth trying to dress effay in....."
>>10494625 >tfw found light grey wool trousers made in my home country by hand by company that stopped making clothes 25 years ago in unused condition with tags still on >2 euros Fucking shame the pants have pleats, could have probably worn them casually around otherwise. And the shade of grey could be darker honestly, but can't really complain because the price was so ridiculous. Also gotta get them tailored, need that taper.
