He's going to thrift stores to see what he can put together. Alpha gives a bit of his background. He came from a family didn't have any extra money, but he was into looking good and clothing. He always went to thrift stores as he could find cool stuff that fit his budget; however, he didn't get shoes or jeans from thrift stores. You don't need a lot of cash to look like a million bucks. It takes hunting, pecking, and picking, and you do need to wash all items before wearing. Thrift Storing Pro Tips 1. Wear a simple plain tee shirt because a lot of times dressing rooms aren't available 2. Even though items are categorized by size, everything has been shrunk. You may need to size up. He hit the thrifting jack pot! The total cost was $17.66! He displays and models what he found: slate gray button-up which the fit and style are remarkable, wool sweater that's fun, and a combo of fitted button down, navy silk tie, and charcoal v-neck sweater.

Amen! I just got a good suit and tie job, been going back to my roots and going theft hunting !
Andrew Harwood (4 months ago)
Palm to face... alpha come on bro.... never use a half Windsor knot.... always ALWAYS use a full Windsor with a dimple. It takes practice to get it the right length and to get the knot small enough but it's worth it I promise. Also the eldritch knot can look pretty cool to if it's paired with the right outfit like a nice pocket square

I used to always shop at this one thrift store when I was little. Some days I found awesome stuff and some days I didn't. It was kinda like treasure hunting
Christopher Bozinovich (4 months ago)
A lot of people say that you can't look good on a budget. I've found some awesome clothes at stores like goodwill and Plato's closet. My personal two favorites for clothes

Ah, the good old days when Alpha wasn't a sellout who didn't care about anything but money and sponsorships; just true honesty and being down-to-Earth. Well, it was fun while it lasted

It’s been said, but biggest tip is go to thrift store in a rich neighborhood. Better stuff.
YOLO ave (9 months ago)
Yo, this is the truth... especially when your loosing weight and your wardrobe needs a refresh every 6mo... dropped 100lb over 2 years... thrift was the savior and definitely some great budget style when you're patient and just grab a few pieces at a time like my boi alpha showed... HAPPY HUNTING

I can't afford new clothes

Plato's Closet is a great place to thrift shop.

This just confirms what I always thought: Looking good is expensive, either you don't have the body and you go find some fitting (expensive) clothes to look good, or you go thrift shopping or buy cheap clothes but work on having a nice body (less expensive unless you count the time spent lol)
noah nicholas (9 months ago)

$20 worth of clothes, and $2 for printing your resume, and a couple of dollars for soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, gel, and a comb and your good to go! Get back on your feet!

Remember you can get stuff like jeans done at a tailor for a few bucks.

Thanks for the ideas, but just one thing, your tie knot looks sloppy. Learn how to do a Windsor knot tie (mistakenly called double Windsor) it looks more symmetrical and neat. Thanks for the tips man!

nikolygtx (1 year ago)
In my country its shame to go in that places and disgrace... Problem its we are all very poor , Country its in so bad place now....But all will judge you when they see you there, i don't buy there at all, i work so i may afford new stuff, nothing special its cheap most of the time but ok.. And on the way home one time i was with mom and she wanted just to see what they have.. She don't care about what she wears at home, so don't wanna spend money for that and so on .... We are in the store like 20 min and from what i saw young girls there were so fucking ungraceful to parents and full of hate towards them for not being to afford new stuff, its a fucking clothing.... material and its not shame in going there, when i was there i saw much amazing stuff for cool price... nice of u alpha for making this video, keep it up i love when someone understand.. sorry i can's speak eng properly
Terrance Wright (1 year ago)
I paid about $6 for some "7forallmankind" jeans. I just liked the style and the fit. Had no idea that they were $150 -$229 new ! Going back for more , then hitting up ZARA, keep up the good work man

So basically muscular people look good in anything
Morten Aanstad (1 year ago)
+RealDarkFilm Well, black clothes look better on guys with tan or dark skin than really pale ones for example, and white dudes don't look good with dreadlocks (which is a hairstyle, but whatever). White clothes also tend to create too much of a contrast to black people's skins compared to whites'
RealDarkFilm (1 year ago)
Alright, but I've never seen clothes that look better on a black dude than a white guy and vice versa
Morten Aanstad (1 year ago)
+RealDarkFilm I was talking about the items in general in terms of style, not the specific ones Alpha bought. And I brought up races and hair colors because there are certain clothing colors that look amazing on one race and hair color, but terrible on others and vice versa. The items here however look great on anyone
RealDarkFilm (1 year ago)
And they were able to buy the exact same item in the exact same size. Doubt it. Idk why you are bringing up races and hair colors as well?
Morten Aanstad (1 year ago)
+RealDarkFilm Practically all the items he bought here look great on anyone; I have friends and family members of all races, hair colors, and physiques, and they looked amazing.
Alex Tamas (1 year ago)
The only way you can't look good is if you don't have a shop where to buy clothes.

Morten Aanstad (1 year ago)
When I was younger, me and my family would each summer spend a couple of weeks in our summer cabin, and there was a thrift shop some kilometers away that we visited every single time. It was actually a pretty cool "attraction", and I bought a sweater the first time I visited the place that I absolutely loved and lasted for almost 3 years until it got rough. I even bought a candelabrum there as a birthday present for my mom.

Das Schadenfreude (1 year ago)
I don't know what thrift stores people keep finding all this cool shit at. Every time I've been to one, the men's section is a bunch of size 58 tweed jackets that haven't been in style since 1985, racks upon racks of 4XL button up shirts in every conceivable garish print, and a bunch of tired looking sweaters.

Looks like you bought back your own clothes

Rogue Vampyre (1 year ago)
I just watched this video. I'm not sure if you'd respond or even see this after so long, but you helped me step my style up massively. I do not have a lot of money as I have to support my parents and myself, but thrift stores are something I never thought about for "classy" style. Thank you, Alpha.

Hit the thrift stores closest to the richer neighborhoods. Yes they donate. They items are awesome. The items are worn out threadbare.
Brandon the Archivist (2 years ago)
Aaron you should do this once a week or once every two weeks a video finding clothes at thrift stores. You can find so name brands and still look todays style. in 2017. Great video dude!
