Reader Questions: Thrift Store Finds

Vintage Military Jacket Q: Lately, you’ve been featuring a bunch of different guys with different styles, but I haven’t seen any military inspired looks. What are your thoughts on that style?

A: I am actually a huge fan of military inspired looks and vintage military clothing in general. Military green is one of my favorite colors because it looks good with just about everything. In fact, I recently purchased this field jacket from a local military surplus store and I’ve been wearing it a lot lately, especially when I’m out and about shooting features. The large pockets are ideal for holding all of my camera equipment and the jacket’s material is unlike anything else I own.

Q: It’s been a while since you shared some of your thrift store finds. What are some of your latest pick-ups?
Thrifting is still one of my favorite hobbies. I visit several different thrift stores on a fairly consistent basis because I hate missing out on the good stuff. As a result, I managed to build most of my professional wardrobe via thrift store shopping while I was in graduate school. However, nowadays I buy a lot of miscellaneous things from thrift stores rather than just clothing, so here are three of my latest finds.
