Hello guys! Yes, it's your time to shine as we give you tips on buying second-hand fashion. While we know it might be harder for men to find second-hand clothing because most men wear their clothes until they're worn out or outgrown (which is quite a good thing, keeping a sustainable approach), we assure you that you can find everything second-hand – it just takes a bit more work.

You might ask, "Why should I put in the effort when I can find clothes in fast-fashion stores and wear them as long as I can?" When buying a new piece of clothing from a fast-fashion brand, you're essentially playing the lottery because some items could look terrible after just a few washes. (We think you all know how that new €5 t-shirt looks after three washes.) But if you buy a well-maintained second-hand piece, you'll know how it will look after some wear because it has already been worn. It’s a win-win situation and it's up to you.

So, if you decide that you're not up for the fast-fashion lottery, we're thrilled to provide you with some tips on what to look for when buying second-hand. 


Men’s second-hand heaven is probably most gifted with vintage denim. Whether it's a blue or black vintage denim jacket, vest, or a pair of jeans, there's a denim piece for everyone’s style. New denim pieces often lack quality, while vintage pieces were made to last decades. The beauty of vintage denim lies in its unique wear patterns of fading, which gives character and a sense of history that new pieces can't replicate.

Denim jeans and shorts are indispensable staples in everyone’s wardrobe. The key is to find the right colour and fit that complements your body and personal style. Consider getting them tailored if needed to ensure a perfect fit – remember that you don’t need to fit the clothing; the clothing needs to fit you. Denim jackets and vests are also incredibly versatile

and practical for everyday wear. They make every outfit look cooler, are comfortable, and work for every season.

How to Style: When it comes to styling denim, the possibilities are endless. There are no rules. Don't be afraid to experiment with double denim or mix denim pieces with styles you wouldn't typically associate with denim, such as formal wear. Embrace the unexpected combinations and let your creativity shine. 


Vintage men's blazers are commonly found in second-hand shops. As we mentioned before, denim looks incredibly interesting when paired with formal wear. Combining denim jeans or shorts with a vintage blazer adds a unique touch to your outfit, guaranteed to catch the eye!

Searching for second-hand blazers offers numerous benefits beyond just affordability. A new quality blazer can cost a fortune, but opting for vintage ones can be a savvy alternative. These blazers often exhibit quality craftsmanship, ensuring durability and longevity in your attire. Additionally, vintage blazers often feature classic and retro designs that add a timeless elegance to your wardrobe, suitable for numerous occasions.

How to style: Blazers don't have to be strictly formal, contrary to the belief that they can only be worn as part of a full-colour suit set. Think creatively, mix and match various colours and prints; you can even make a suit set casual and playful. Of course, incorporate denim – denim jeans, and shorts. If it’s a colder day, try layering a blazer on top of a denim shirt or vest. Blazers can also complement loungewear or sporty pieces. Everything can be achieved through experimentation and an open-minded approach. 


Prints in clothing are the go-to option for men aiming to effortlessly elevate their outfits. Vintage clothing offers a delightful array of patterns and designs that evoke the essence of different eras. From bold florals to whimsical polka dots, and stripes, vintage prints add a playful and eclectic touch to any wardrobe.

Prints in vintage clothing offer a unique opportunity to stand out from the crowd, ensuring that you're likely the only one wearing that particular design. Unlike mass-produced garments found in fast fashion stores, vintage prints carry a sense of exclusivity and individuality. This uniqueness allows you to express your personal style in a truly one-of-a-kind way.

How to style: Incorporating printed shirts, trousers, or jackets into your wardrobe is a surefire way to elevate any simple outfit. While mixing prints together can be a bit advanced, beginners can start with striped prints. Pairing them with other striped prints, polka dots, or checks in the same or different colours can create a unique look. If you're unsure, check for examples online to get inspired, and once you feel confident, don't be afraid to experiment! 


Have you noticed how women enhance their outfits with accessories? Well, why not try it ourselves? In recent years, there has been a notable shift in men's fashion towards embracing accessories beyond just small silver or gold chains. Men are now experimenting more with necklaces, rings, interesting belts, and even bags!

Second-hand shops offer a treasure trove of unique accessories that can add flair to your everyday outfits. Don't limit yourself to one gender category; explore women's sections to discover more distinctive pieces. And don't think that accessories like bags or some jewellery are only for women - try to see them through fresh eyes. Who knows, you might just find the perfect statement piece to elevate your style!

How to style: Accessories are the secret sauce that adds extra flavor and personality to your outfit. Whether it's cool rings, necklaces, trendy hats, or sleek bags, each piece brings its own unique vibe to the table. Jewellery adds a touch of sophistication, while hats bring a cool contrast to your ensemble. Don't underestimate the power of a statement belt to elevate a simple look. And when it comes to bags, we know some of you might be hesitant, but take a cue from style icon Jacob Elordi and see how effortlessly he incorporates bags into his everyday wear. They can be your ultimate accessory, adding both style and practicality to your look!
