A world-wide trend. Also rich celebrities in US do it. Ask them why they shop second-hand and drive a Ferrari.

Not in any of the cities I've been to.

What is wrong with second hand clothes?

I don`t think so.

There is in Cracow the trend now, that rich young people buy second hand clothes... They aren`t ashamed...:)

Some of those shops sell English-language books by weight.

Why aren't you ashamed to lie like that?

I don't know about socks, but US Army and Navy second hand stores are the sht for getting a pea coat and other winter gear for a quick trip up north. I even found one with a bullet hole!

You should only feel ashamed if you stole clothes. There might be a time in your life when you will shop at second hand stores only. You will remember this thread, no doubt.

People in US, all nationalities, buy and wear clothes purchased in the second hand stores, especially now days when people are experiencing economic hardships.
In US, I have seen many TV adds promoting buying second hand clothes as a frugal and smart thing to do. You should be ashamed of trying to make this into a shameful Polish economic activity.

My mother has a hobby, which could turn into a little side business. My and all my friends put in an order with her, of exactly an item we would like, and my mother finds goes and finds it in second hand stores within two days. She has gotten countless kitchen stuff, furniture, children's clothes. All used, many for a single dollar. I just can't get her to tag a higher markup, she's having way too much fun.

I know someone in UK who does that. Some amazing things end up in those shops, and using them is very 'green'.

I don't talk about some snobs or bohemians who thinks its trendy to wear some second hand stuff. Polish people should feel ashamed cos these shops are more common than any other business. They have no pride of themselves, slave mentality.

Plenty of normal people use them. There's a great one near me, always full of people, young couples, old ladies, even the odd expat.

I went in to buy some English-language books last week and came out with a 400 euro designer suit, looks brand new, for 24zl.

I was thinking about buying a new suit anyway, I don't much like Polish-made clothes, I was dreading the hassle of trying clothes on all round town, I prefer shops like Emporio Armani and Hugo Boss but hate the exorbitant prices, and bingo, the very thing I was looking for fell into my lap for the price of a bottle of cheap wine.

TIT: So, the fact that you bought something out of a box, (probably made in India) should fill you with great pride, as opposed to finding something well made, for much lower price?

especially now days when people are experiencing economic hardships.

During these difficult financial times, many second-hand businesses are now thriving. Most of their items are basically afforable.

Hollywood, CA Melrose has several vintage (aka second-hand) stores. Many great items can be found.

are you happy with wearing pants after some German bauer?

pants

Do you mean underpants? Most second-hand shops won't stock them. And the suit I bought could only have come from a rich person.

Queen Elizabeth (who can only get away with wearing a dress once) snips out the labels and sends everything to vintage clothes shops. She's been doing it all her life. In the UK, if you know which ones to go to (in very affluent areas), there are some amazing bargains.

Not me, personally, but my mother had orders for black work pants and other uniforms. They get washed! What, do you think the clothes carry spirits?

Lets not get crazy for the arguments sake. Nobody buys (or sells!) second hand underwear of socks. Unless they're 'performance' clothes :)

Your username is very belting. You are a tit :-)

Well, I don't mind driving a used German car, living on a previously German land,
and the second prettiest girl I've ever shagged was German, so, I guess wearing
used German pants wouldn't kill me either (I hope :-)).

For everyone shopping in second hand stores, Ladies and Gentlemen...

I buy what I can afford, with good quality and with sense of fashion and I feel as a free man , not a slave

What bothers you is that those people using top of the line stuff which they bought used are messing with your inane need to stereotype. You can't tell if they bought it new, and spent the big bucks, or got it really cheap. Ain't that a b!tch!

Yep, I love It. Harry, how many accounts do you have ?

Seriously, I remember in early 90's many people had to buy 2nd hand clothes as they didn't afford new ones, now clothes imported from Asia cost pennies, anyone who buy 2nd hand just want to have something unusual.

Please answer this questions...

There's some truth in that. Also, some amazing bargains. A lot of people who go to those shops don't touch chainstore stuff, but look for (or pay the assistant to look out for) specific things.
