OK, well I'm 17 and I dress how I want to, I don't really fit into a clique or whatever, but I was wondering. I know that girls often go thrift shopping, but I have never seen any guy my age or older ever in one. I would love to, as I love vintage clothing and old bookstores etc, but I don't know if there would be anything that I would get. My style is basically tightish chinos/jeans and cardigans and jackets (military, with whatever on my feet, as long as it's not mainstream/ugly and over manufactured crap ( I wear mostly moccasins and vans/converses). However, I will wear anything that tickles my fancy and that I look good in. Are there things that would interest me in thrift stores? Girls: what would you think about a guy who thrift shops? Guys: do any of you thrift shop?

Well, it really depends on the thrift store. The type and location of a thrift store often affects what you'll find there. A lot of thrift shopping is sifting through garbage to find the treasures. Thrift stores are always getting new things as well, so part of it is finding those treasures when they're first put on the floor before someone else finds them. Sometimes you'll walk into a thrift store and find tons of great stuff. Other times you'll spend a lot of time there and end up walking out with nothing.
I'd suggest going to a few thrift shops and checking them out. You might find things you like, you might not. If you're into military style, I'd also suggest checking out some army surplus stores.
