An outfit of little remark.
Went thrifting today came up with nothing. But it’s important to remember not to get discouraged. What did I see?
First, the parking lot was full, but the store wasn’t too busy, 2 people were coming out of the donation center when I got there, another was going in when I left. This means at the very least there is a high volume of items going in and out.
Second, I saw nice things. Some vintage Brooks Bros foulard ties (I’m not a big foulard fan, so I passed), some “The Shirt Shop” dress shirts (not my size), some very nice tweed jackets (nothing that fit or really struck my fancy), several navy blazers (not my size), etc…
Third, they were restocking the hell out of the place. No fewer than 3 racks of restocking items hit the floor while I was there (maybe 30 mins).
Now, none of this changes the fact that I still struck out, what it does mean is that there’s plenty of things coming into the store (like I said yesterday, the seasonal wardrobe purge is upon us, prime thrifting season), most of this will be junk, but if you’re looking to maximize (maximalize?) your chances of getting some stuff, this is the time.
As to my outfit? Thrifters uniform, slip on shoes, open collar (with undershirt so you only need a fitting room for pants), jacket for trying on overcoats, any more is just a pain in the balls.
