Buying used isn’t what it used to be. More often than not, used means “wore once, and forgot about it.” There’s a euphoric feeling to buying brand new, tagged clothes, unpacked and hung on racks.

However, increasingly, our generation is one that is planet-conscious. (That’s a great thing.) Lightly worn/used clothing is just as good, if not better for fashion-forward people with a tight budget. Grailed is a online shop lets anyone buy directly from another person’s closet, so to speak.

Here’s Grailed’s mission statement:

“We’re in the business of spreading high-quality men’s clothing by making it affordable for everyone.

Your clothes should make you look and feel great. But it’s hard to shop for quality menswear – that’s why we built Our clothes come exclusively from the closets of fashion-conscious individuals. Not only are you browsing a curated selection of clothing, you are buying it at around 50% off retail. It’s the most affordable way to fill your wardrobe with high-quality pieces.”

All transactions are done via PayPal, so create an account if you don’t have one.

Most listings are very thorough, which means you don’t need to worry about quality and condition because the sellers are very clear on everything. I’ve spent the last hour browsing through it and have bookmarked some really nice sweaters and jackets with nice details.
