This must have come out this morning as someone posted the video on my facebook wall (that’s right, I’m just as much a thrift rat in real life as on the blogonets).
Here it is for anyone interested. And FWIW, I’ve always thought the Hip-HopX#menswear was kind of strange, but now that hip-hop has adopted thrift shopping… well I kind of think this is awesome (fucking awesome?)
Oh, and come on, best part is the giant fur coat! Have you seen my profile pic?
EDIT: Also, I wasn’t huge on it this morning, but damn if that weird saxophone loop wasn’t stuck in my head all day.
It’s been cold the past few nights. That combined with the impending end of August can mean only one thing.
The Autumn thrift season is starting.
While thrifting all year round is the best way to hit big, if you have limited patience I’d recommend the next 2-3 weeks as the best time (also the end of winter/beginning of spring). People are putting away S/S stuff, pulling out F/W and realizing “oh wait, I never wore this jacket last year, better get rid of it and get a different one.
Get to it.
I’m never quite sure what to make of it.
I have this from November 2010 (For the TL/DR crowd the longer article is about my attempt to dye a camo jacket a darker shade to create a muted camo effect, exactly like the Kempt one)
and April 2011

I guess my 70’s gear will suddenly seem trendy in a hot second here. I should brace myself.
I found a pair of “vintage” (early 90’s) reebok pumps (new out of box) in an (admittedly pretty awesome) red buffalo check for $30 today.
I didn’t buy ‘em, but I’m wondering if this is a thing that streetwear is into. I remember that shit from when I was a kid, and I’m curious if that is something people are into once more.
I don’t know shit all about streetwear, but it piqued my interest.
So what can you tell me?
