Secondhand clothing – everything from gently used sweaters, trousers, shoes, accessories and more – has been growing in volume throughout the pandemic. Certainly there is a lot of clutter out there, but there are quite a handful of men’s retailers doing it properly. We’ve taken the liberty of putting together a list of nine men’s fashion companies that have the best secondhand items out there. At these retailers you can either cash out by selling your products, or ball out with the designer pieces you find.
The great thing about secondhand is once you no longer desire an item, you can sell it back and protect the environment by prolonging the lifecycle of the item. Ahead, we share with you some of the best online consignment shops. Remember, secondhand doesn’t necessarily mean an item is used either, it can be brand new but just from another owner.
Poshmark is great if you want to price out your items. By simply taking photos, uploading, and selecting a price with a short description — the website will hold all your items. Essentially it’s a small store front for your unwanted items. The great thing is the site will automatically send you a shipping label for items, but will take 20% commission.
Depop runs on an app only and is great for hipster and vintage vibes. Plus, commission is only 10%.
At StockX, buyers set a bid price they’re willing to pay, and sellers display an ask price that they’re willing to do. If the two align, the sale is automatic. It’s also a great place to dip your toes into sneaker culture.
For the fashion-educated, Grailed is one of the best online selling platforms for menswear. Buying directly from the seller, you can negotiate a price that is wallet-friendly.
Specializing in luxury items, Vestaire Collective makes selling a breeze. Fill out a form with the item’s info (designer, size, and season) and an employee will contact you to see if it fits. If approved, you’ll get sent a shipping label and you will then forward items to their Paris office. The brand takes up to 35% commission.
The proper place for hypebeasts worldwide for sneakers, apparel and all things streetwear. The store has a 10-point verification system to ensure authenticity.
The luxury consignment store is a great place to sell all your items, regardless of category. Sellers get to keep up to 85% of the sale price. Apart from clothing, they also have jewelry, art and one-of-a-kind furniture.
If you’re looking for full control of your selling, look no further than Facebook Marketplace. Your listing will be open to people in your area and anyone on the social network.
Located in New York and Los Angeles, go here for box-fresh sneakers of the rarest variety.
And if you’re a fan of Levi’s products, they have their own secondhand marketplace.
