Men's Style: Goodwill

Congratulations to Kelly who won the tickets to the Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show! 

I've been back to Goodwill a few more times since my first shopping trip for the show. My biggest challenge so far has been trying to find a “modern” pair of men's pants in both the right length and waist size.

My friend who is modeling in the show was very patient with me as I texted him pictures of men's pants from the Goodwill dressing room. Our conversations went like this:

Me: “Do you think this pant leg looks a little wide?”
My Friend: “Don’t you think with the recent trend in slim leg pants?”

Let's just say the pants I was asking him about were not very stylish.

Luckily, I found a pair of pants that I think have a modern look and are the right size. After sharing the pants saga with my boyfriend, he suggested enlisting the help of a tailor. Find a pair of pants that fit in the waist — a tailor can't make pants bigger — and have them taken in or hemmed. Lesson learned!

What tricks have you learned for shopping at Goodwill?

To see all of my looks, buy tickets for the Goodwill Good Style Show at Living Social. The show takes place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 7 at Windows on the River
