i figure it's comparable, outside of rare limited productions buying used clothing is basically wanting the look for a discounted price ie. fake designer

although in the end if you want to buy higher end used clothing and no one you see knows you bought it second hand, whats the difference i suppose

Buying used clothing also contributes to the seller, maybe the seller bought the item, left it in the closet for along time never wore it and wants to get rid of it.

OP and you need to gtfo out of the B&S section on revscene. Since VX closed, all those kids have migrated here in hopes of selling their rhinestone, foil, ugly clothing.

I don't even buy/sell B&S section. I buy all my clothes at malls, outlets or upscale high end boutiques.

"upscale high end boutiques"

sorry, boys co is not a upscale high end boutique. If you were actually interested in "fashion" then you would understand why some people buy used clothing.

I'd like to argue Boysco is pretty upscale considering they sell a lot of the premium brands of clothing. I don't shop there much because their selection isn't that great. I have a couple suits that I only wear on special occasions like weddings, interviews that cost $1500 when I bought brand new.
Even my sunglasses collection is valued at around a couple thousands dollars. I have 12 pairs of sunglasses that I switch around
So don't say I don't know anything about fashion.

I may be the oldest in my immediate family, but that never stopped me from getting hand-me-downs from cousins and stuff.

So I'm used to wearing used clothing.
I rarely buy used clothes, cause I just don't like the quality or look of most of the stuff, and being small, it's ridiculously hard to find my size.
So for the most part, it's just not worth my time to buy used.


I wouldn't be opposed to picking up a few very expensive, lightly used items, like goretex or an arcteryx softshell. Being high-end, that stuff rarely goes on sale.


I also take super good care of my stuff, so I have sold it off to friends.
I do this with clothes, electronics and whatever.
They know I'm super picky, and they are getting only the best.

Seems to work for us.

Like it or not boysco is considered higher end. It may not be nosebleed. But higher than what the average person would buy

As a Sales associate, there are countless amount of junkies, addicts, and bums that come in to try on clothes they end up not buying. Thank god for sanitizer, but to be honest sometimes the clothes in stores aren't much cleaner then used. And as for people that say those that buy used clothes are just tools that want to fit in. Well.. how about limited edition items or clothes that are next to impossible to find. for example- michael jacksons glove. yes its been over his crotch but that still sold for millions of dollars because it is a collectors item. Or some people just really like the clothing. dont be so quick to judge.

So don't say I don't know anything about fashion.

By the sounds of your highly flawed argument, purchasing items at Boysco and having 12 pairs of sunglasses translates into the possession of a good fashion sense? My God, did your parents drop you on the head when you were little? Or wait... Did they happen to be related before they were married? First of all, you're a dumbass if you ever bought a suit at Boysco for $1500. Lemme guess... The material was 80% foil, 15% silk, 5% uberhomo made exclusively by the designer on the cutting edge of fagshion, Monsieur Christian Audigier. I don't know which electrical signals clicked, or didn't click, in your dim-witted brain, which prompted you to pick Boysco over Holts or Rosen (just to list a couple) in terms of suit buying.

12 pairs of sunglasses? Oh wow baller baller, did you get a free bottle of fag juice for every pair you purchased? do you alternate sunglasses throughout the 2 months of sun in Vancouver along with your audigier hoodies, key closet tees, laguna beach jeans, and white pumas?

From this tragic and ludicrous attempt at trying to convince your fellow revsceners of your self proclaimed fantastic sense of fashion, you have rather proved to us all that you have no fashion sense whatsoever, solely from the fact you have sunk low enough to believe BoysCo carries "premium" clothing. Unless "premium" can be used synonymously with "nammer", your logic is retarded beyond a reasonable doubt.

I'm not going to say money can't help people's fashion sense. There are certain pieces that non-designer brands don't sell, since they lack the brand prestige and market to earn a profit from these items (for example, Old Navy won't ever sell selvedged denim). But I can promise you that for your particular case, I can get laid faster (without taking into account of my 12" lochness monster vs. your milimeter peter) wearing $150 worth of clothing from Gap, than you can with $5000 worth of clothing from Boysco.

Like respect, a good sense of fashion cannot be purchased. Clothing is bought, fashion is learned. Hit me with your best response MQR03, I am more than ready for a rebuttal.

Oh god. Since when was wearing "Ed Hardy" and "True Religion" fashionable?

Being fashionable is knowing what clothes go well together, NOT by wearing clothing of a certain brand.

LOL @ Boys Co. being upscale.
