Really.. You try going to goodwill and find some of these articles of clothing. These sites are great for people who enjoy these clothes and not force to buy all the shitty remakes. The new drug dealing? Might be the top 3 dumbest analogies I've ever heard. Yea the mark up might be a bit high but these items are not as easy to find like you claim.
We just launched our website within the last year and would love for you to check it out and give us some feedback. Not even gonna lie, I fuckin hate 'clothing companies' like these. Literally all you do is go to goodwill and find vintage threads then resell it on a webstore with a crazy markup and sell it for more than it even cost brand new. There is literally no creativity or originality involved in this business. I swear this shit is the new drug dealing.
Thriftyduds.com is an online Thrift Boutique featuring One-of-kind Vintage Clothing inspired by the 80's & 90's era; where hip-hop was fresh and baggy was encouraged. We love vintage everything, incomparable style, and rare clothing pieces.

I go to goodwill on a weekly occasion and have found several vintage pieces that they would definitely love to sell for a 500% markup so its not that hard to find nice vintage threads for much cheaper and its often more fun. The drug dealing was a bit of a joke but dealing, thrifting and reselling and starting a brand are all now somewhat synonymous with kids who don't want to get a job but want quick money.
i'm sure that they don't claim to be a "clothing company".....simply resell...why the hate?
(if anything, you should hate the markup on your favorite clothing company.....and then hate on THAT resell markup too!)
by the way....starting a resell site is just as "unoriginal and uncreative" as starting your own clothing line....so you got a lot of hating to do in this thread!
I'm sure they don't claim to be a clothing company but after all they are posting in a 'Starting a new line/brand' thread so that implys something. As for the markup, I am a frequent buyer and lover of streetwear so I have no problem with expensive clothes, but the difference is that with these companies I know of their quality and fit and also buy stuff new whereas with this one is paying premium prices for a garment that is previously used.
Lastly, I would have to disagree, starting any brand, even a bad one takes some creativity because one at least has to design the pieces or graphics. Starting a vintage reselling business only requires having a good eye while browsing through goodwill.
Upon actually looking at their website, they have great presentation and good pieces but I'm still not impressed by this current trend.
