I have no problems with wearing thrift store clothing.
Wife brought home a pair of Bass loafers that we couldn't tell if they had been worn or not. I looked at them and thought slippers ... now it seems I need socks in more colors than white so I can go in public with them.
I think for the last ten years most of my clothing has come from goodwill. Almost all still with tags. Wife has even found socks and underwear still in the package.
I kill clothing at a phenomenal rate. It's just a tack weld .... there goes another T-Shirt. Roofs wear out the butts of pants, tar stains, grease stains, I have one heck of a rag bag.
Not to say we get only work clothes from goodwill (sic). Wife and I both have designer cloths, most with the factory tags intact, all look as though they haven't been worn. Wife's coworkers thought she was making big bucks because of the clothes she wore to work.
Many times Wife would sell her goodwill finds to her coworkers, literally, right off her back and feet. Before she retired it got to the point Wife knew her coworkers sizes and would shop for them.
Fact, at New Years dinner with the family Wife was trying to gift a pair of unwoirn size 8 1/2 white womans tennis shoes, leather uppers, deck soles.
Golly, I just remembered, Wife has come home with stuff saying how this sister or that sister would like it ....
I would say We have no problems with Goodwill (sic) clothing.
NOW IF you want to talk accessories .... we sell costume jewelry by the pound. Because Wife buys it by the box.
I'm wearing an early '70s Seiko Quartz, Wife probably paid pennies for it, cost me a new battery, keeps great time.
And one day Wife asks me if I want a Rolex ... RIGHT .... Yup. a 1930s Chronograph. Aquired in a jar of mostly costume junk.
What was that you wanted to know about thrift stores?
