This post is just for the ladies out there (sorry guys!). Sometimes us women need some clues about how to vintage shop for the men in our lives. Second hand stores are full of men’s items that need to find new homes just like the pretty dresses and heels do!
If you have a man in your life, you might want to include items for him on your next “must-find” list! Browse through the sometimes neglected men’s wear aisles, and see what you can find. Here are a few hip items to keep your eyes out for.
1. Vintage Tees
Bring home a vintage tee, and your guy will likely smile. Choose a band that he loves, and you might even get a kiss!
It takes a man who is comfortable marching to the beat of his own drummer to wear suspenders. But if you think a guy in your life might try out this look, you are sure to find a pair in your local thrift store. Suspenders used to be in every closet! Now they are rare and fashionable.
3. Quirky Cardigan
Used cardigans are a fun item to pick up for the guy in your life. Look for high quality wool. I especially like cardigans with elbow patches.
4. Colorful Scarf
Hello, hipster! Bright and vibrant scarfs look handsome, even with the most casual outfit. Thrift store scarves are easy to clean and press so that they look just like new.
5. Soft Plaid Shirts
Soft and cozy flannel never goes out of style, and seems to only get better with age. You might even find yourself borrowing this to wrap up in when the air gets chilly!
If you ever feel like you have everything you could possibly need, and yet still feel the urge to peruse your local shops, think about shopping for a guy in your life. You will find yourself in entirely new aisles, and that can be fun! You might even find a few men’s wear items to buy for yourself. Do you already shop for a man in your life?
