An Oscar Winner's Take On Thrifting

"The whole thing of clothes is isane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a shop. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn't know which was which."

- Helen Mirren in Esquire, August 2011

Warby Parker: Part II

 I thought about purchasing another pair of prescription glasses, since my first experience was decent I decided to try Warby Parker again.  This time the home try-on was available.

 You can try up to five pairs for 5 days.
 The Griffin in Greystone
 The Roosevelt Striped Chestnut
 The Finn inSandalwood Matte
 My Favorite pair was the "Miles" shown here in Revolver Black
The Preston in Sandalwood Matte

My favorites in order started from the bottom, including the Nedwin's that I bought previously.

Shipping is free both ways for the home try-on and they arrive in about 3 business days.  If a frame that you want to try is unavailable you try a different colorway (i.e. Miles in Black instead of Chesnut) and they may be available so you can get an idea of how they will look. 

The concept is great, it really takes the surprises out of internet shopping.

Fashion Math - How Can Jeans Cost $300?

 (Click Photo to Enlarge)

 This is very clear and straight forward until you get to the "Other Cost" section. Check out the article and you'll see that about half of price of these $300+ jeans is in the retailer markup, yeah I know they could end up on the sale racks, so why not start the negotiation with a high-ball offer...I guess...

Stick to thrifting (thrift shops, consignment shops, clothing resellers, ebay...) and you can skip the "Other Cost" and end up paying only for the materials, or the labor and it's possible to pay just for the trim and get the whole pair of jeans!

100% Thrifted

Stretch-Armstrong with the dollar ($36 fit)...Well Done, but the other outfit and accessory for $28 is just crazy, I might have to head to St. Louis (via SB).
