4 Clothing Items You Should Really Buy Used

Want to improve your closet? Raid someone else’s

buying used clothing

Some clothes get better with age. So why not let someone else break them in for you?

While other people pay full price for new stuff that looks vintage, you’ll score massive discounts on the real thing, says Manhattan fashion stylist Seth Howard.

To pull off a truly timeless look, snag these four secondhand clothing items.

Denim Jacket

A light to medium wash will scuff and fade as it’s worn, giving the jacket a personality all its own. Small tears and holes add to the coolness factor; armpit stains don’t.

When you try it on, the jacket should land no more than 2 inches below your waist, says Howard. A good find at a vintage store should run you just $50—and way less if you hit Goodwill.

Just make sure you can fasten every button, and keep an eye out for any loose hardware that might need repairs. For a true treasure, seek out a vintage Levi’s trucker jacket. (It’ll have that signature red tab on the left chest pocket.)
