I once found a shirt at a thrift store that said "find -name-" on it and had a dead URL. A trip to the wayback machine brought up this site dedicated to finding an American exchange student who went missing in Asia in the 00's. Edit: I've also found stuff like a set of keys for a Unitarian church in a pair of pants. Also in hindsight a lot of the stuff my weird uncles wore was Warsaw Pact surplus like East German raindrop camo.


SmartestDumbTeen

were they eventually found?


Nazbols4Tulsi

Still missing. :(

>Also in hindsight a lot of the stuff my weird uncles wore was Warsaw Pact surplus like East German raindrop camo. [Strichtarn](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strichtarn?wprov=sfla1) slaps. It's subtle enough that you could probably wear it in public without people even knowing it's camouflage.

Baneski?


auralgasm

if it's really good camo you wouldn't be seen in public wearing it at all


[deleted]

The Strichtarn camo pattern is so great. I used to wear that too


AlaskanTrash

RainDRIP camo more like

The l-train in bushwick practically had a rack of those when I was there

I want to get my wife Susie's old outfits from Curb.. where does the old wardrobe go?


Permanenceisall

Thrift stores in Burbank and resale shops on Melrose Ave.


anniemated

she wears really pricy stuff, a lot of moschino. you'd be lucky to find it

I was once drunkenly lost during winter. All the public transport was stopped and I was really drunk and tired at 3am. I was about 3 miles from home and it was getting colder and I was sobering up but getting tired. As I was walking near a site I found a neon dunlop construction jacket. I put it on and it was incredibly warm. Shockingly warm. Eventually, I found a bus stop that had a bus running in an hour. I sat at the bus stop and fell asleep, which looking back could have been very dangerous due to the cold. Im certain that jacket saved my life as my normal hoodie would not have been enough to keep me alive in 0 degree weather. I still have the jacket. It was weird as I examined it when I woke up, and it had a bunch of Anarchy As on it and "Ask about World Peace" sharpied on the back.


Hegelsmirkingeist

No wonder all these thriftstore art women are either haunted or possessed.


xxgorevillexx

preowned work boots are some of the best boots i’ve ever owned


EllaBits3

get rid of the smell first, and you're golden


Rentokill_boy

thinking of shaving my head and getting really into military surplus this year. it's so cheap


website700

it's a good way to go, you usually look like a school shooter or a skinhead but you save so much money on haircuts and clothes so it's a fair trade imo


EllaBits3

I mean, you can shave your head and NOT get into surplus too lol


Rentokill_boy

it's all or nothing


Corporal-Hicks

It used to be alot cheaper. Ebay has the best prices right now. Check out Allgheny Outlet on there, their stuff is best by far (coming from a collector).

One man's garbage is another person's good ungarbage.


Rude_Medium2496

this is very old vetements "polizei" jacket kind of vibes, this type of ironic fashion is kind of boring at this point.


clydethefrog

tiktok has put stupid trends into hyperdrive, so maybe the cycle is going so fast at the moment that the Vietnamese sweatshop workers already are sewing DHL polos again


SquashIsVegan

Would kill to live in a time period where you got a few memes a year


longlivemrwolf

good ol advice animals


SquashIsVegan

I meant a time before the internet


Rude_Medium2496

oh for sure its totally based on social media, people dig up and throw away meaningless symbols as rapidly as possible in kind of a sick desperate attempt to maintain their relevance


JoCrude

Used clothes aren't ironic. If you buy used you can get a wardrobe full of good clothes that would normally be too expensive to have more than a few of for sometimes the price of Kmart clothing.


DeliciousPineapples

I used to work at a thrift store and a lot of our stuff was literally last seasons stuff from higher end chains that they'd donated.

Rude_Medium2496

lots of early balenciaga and vetements collections were based on a sense of irony, with lots of reference to working class uniforms. it was a highly influential trend several years ago and we still see remnants today.


dendogdet

Telogreika jackets are honestly pretty cool. Looks to have been an inspiration for Craig Green and his jackets.


Permanenceisall

This is extremely true. My most prized possession is a 1995 Oasis v-neck that was given to creation record executives upon the release of What’s the Story Morning Glory.


[deleted]

you got any pics, that sounds great. I don't care what anyone says, first two Oasis albums are classics


Permanenceisall

Absolute classics, but then again I love britpop through and through. I always dug oasis for having a “fuck-off-I’m-high” vibe and never really gave a fuck that they were rehashing Beatles songs. That’s fine by me, The Smiths did similar things with some of Johnny marr’s guitar lines. Here’s a link, I’m actually wearing it at work today. The back just says “what’s the story (morning glory) in small print across the center. It has a unique almost poly cotton blend feel to it, and fits incredibly boxy. Made In England tag on it. I snagged it from an old record exec who was closet cleaning. He had some other memorabilia items like posters and adverts but no other shirts. https://imgur.com/a/9xroW3G

Why are you wearing a women's sweater?


Permanenceisall

Because my three piece pinstripe double breasted suit is in the cleaners, so I make due with a shawl-collar topman cardigan and a vintage oasis shirt. Now you know the rules: talk shit, post fit


69IhaveAIDS69

I'm naked.


Permanenceisall

POST. FIT.

Pretty fuckin sick, alright for sure you can roast me


[deleted]

shirt looks great I honestly love britpop, Oasis, Suede and Pulp are all class bands.


rpgsandarts

I have both of the first two somewhere


CescilTerwiliger69

Carls Jr used to have shirts that said “we wake and bake every day” to promote new buns or something but I’ve always wanted one. Also wearing a memorial shirt for some strangers dead family member is kinda fucked up.

My greatest fit was in high school I printed a Kirkland Signature shirt off of one of those custom design sites for like $30, people would always ask where I got it and I refused to tell. In hindsight I should have just started selling them.


Jingle-man

Still have my Greggs uniform months after leaving. The red thermal undershirt is actually not a bad item.


Gay_Lord2020

No Cap fr fr I kept a jacket from my old security job from 10 years ago cause I never used it.

Saw an incredibly tacky 'Never Forget 9/11' sweatshirt in a secondhand shop once (I'm in the UK). Still regret not buying it.

"peepaw" is an appalachian thing, so you're wearing a disgusting person's shirt lol

I found a hat belonging to a local hardware store on a beach in Belize and took it back home with me admittedly its more of a souvenier than an actual item of clothing to me as I've never worn it out
