Not so long ago I read a post on my friend India’s blog about charity shopping, and essentially how to be the best at ‘thrifting’. After giving it a good read, I realised that over the years I’ve picked up some absolutely amazing pre-loved bargains so I thought I’d share a few as well as giving a few tips on how to find the best stuff!
The reason I started to thrift/charity shop was mainly that I had very little money at the time! I was so surprised to see the kind of clothes people would give to charity. On pretty much every trip I’d find goodies such as Ralph Lauren shirts, Levis jeans, and the occasional band t shirt. As I started to earn more money I’d shop more on the high street but I found that the quality was lacking and my thrifted items would last longer in my wardrobe than my high street pick-ups.
As well as charity shops, I’ve found car boot sales, pop up vintage stalls and eBay to be just as nifty! Over the years I’ve managed to pick up a Levis denim jacket for £5, a faux suede bomber jacket for £1.75, countless Ben Sherman shirts and a fair few Fred Perry polos!
Hey, my name is Gianluca and I am a menswear fashion blogger! In short, this means I buy clothes that are way overpriced, take pretty pictures for my Instagram account, pretending to have a great time, and then return all of said items because… of the expense!
That is, unless I go charity shopping!
Charity shopping is great for a number of reasons. You can find amazing vintage pieces, therefore always staying bang on trend, you’re guaranteed to find a bargain, and it can be incredibly rewarding if you find that perfect piece to add to your wardrobe.
Clothes or rent? The eternal student question. What if I told you both were possible? What if I told you some cracking shirts were within your reach at prices too good to turn down?
I’m Max, an intern in Business Development at Barnardo’s Head Office. Like the next student, I’m all about the bargains. I buy all my shirts – casual and smart- in charity shops. I also buy most other things, but especially shirts. So should you.
