Wear It Again Sam is not a place where you can expect to find things at a great bargain just because it is used. What you will find are some great vintage pieces in nearly brand new condition from as far back as the 1940s. That's 60 years old! They pay attention to detail and condition and the clothes available here are on the high end of each. And you'll be expected to pay a decent price as well. But when you consider how hard it's getting to find original clothes from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s you'll understand why it's worth it to pay what they're asking. Thus far I've purchase a beautiful 1950s gabardine Ike jacket, a wonderful maroon 1940s sportcoat with raised lapels, and numerous gabardine shirts and pants. The staff are great to talk with about vintage clothing and are very friendly.

This is unarguably the best vintage clothing shop I have ever been to in terms of what they typically have and the quality of their merchandise. A must for any vintage clothing enthusiast!

What to buy: Vintage clothes for men and women.

What to pay: Varies but it won't be cheap
