Nope, I don't like to buy second hand (used) clothes. It's against my rules.

I somtimes do that, if that clothes fit nicely to me. I don't care about second or first hand, as long as it's good

Of course! I basically love that. I definitely prefer to buy clothes at second hand shops. It's cheaper, I always look original.

Yes, I buy some of my clothes secondhand. I love finding something great for relatively little money.

I shop in person in consignment shops and thrift stores, and I also shop on eBay for certain designers that I like.

I am not sure if its just me or anyone else thinks the same. I feel that it is unhygienic to use pre-owned clothes. Unless otherwise it is a hand me down from a sibling or a close friend.

This depends on your beliefs. And in my opinion, there is no problem in buying 2nd hand clothes especially if you know necessary precautions.

Like for example, being aware that you might get an underarm odor when you use this type of clothes. Just saying- Good luck!

yep. Mostly are for home use. Sometimes, I get to find really nice clothing that I use when going out with friends.

No. I can't imagine myself wearing clothes that I don't even know who wore them first.

Here are my reasons.

1. style- there is a vastly larger selection of styles (or can invent your own) when going to 2nd hand shops. You can get clothes from almost every decade- especially the fancier vintage clothing shops. Thumbing through current magazines of stores that sell only new clothing --the style/look isn't always what I'm looking for...which leads me to my 2nd point.

2. originality- I don't want to be wearing the same shirt -thats massed produced by the large clothing chains- that hundreds of other men are wearing. I want to wear an outfit -that friends or even strangers will say- 'hey thats a cool shirt ..or jacket..where did you get it?"

3. price- being always aware of keeping my spending low -I can't reason to buy one shirt thats brand new for say $35 (or more) when I can buy 3-4 used shirts for the same price-- and they are in great condition as well! Not like I'm buying damaged clothing just for the sake to save a few dollars..most times the shirt looks new and you wouldn't be able to tell other than the fact it didn't some in any fancy packaging.

4. makes me money- going to a used clothing store you just never know what you'll be leaving with--- sometimes I'll go to buy clothes only to resell on online auction websites for 3-4 times the price and make a profit

I think its fun and unpredictable... of course there are some items I buy new...pajamas, underwear, bathing suits.....but the rest is all used clothing.

As far as the bad luck superstition, I can see what you mean...but I look at it like this.... in life you make your own luck, the decisions you make ,the actions you do will dictate if its good luck or bad luck. An item of clothing has no power over you or your future --its a piece of cloth and no matter who wore it prior has no correlation to your life. Thats how I see it anyways...
Great answer! You hit it on the head!
