    Check out the men's bargain cart on the second floor after hitting up the dollar per pound section! Shirts for $1 and sweaters for $2. It's a lot easier to sort though and the items are nicer!

    Go the The Garment District to find a funky outfit to wear...anywhere. But try Dollar-A-Pound's pile of clothes on the floor to gather up outfits and odds-and-ends for a $1.50 a pound. :)

    The staff is extremely helpful; if you have trouble finding a part of a costume or outfit, they'll point you in the right direction. Just ask!

    Those who like a good dig should hit this vintage emporium’s Dollar-a-Pound section before heading upstairs to the women’s department, where a trove of about 40,000 pieces awaits. Read more

    The $1.00 per pound room is well worth the dig! I recently found a Bonwit Teller Private Label coat in near MINT condition!

    The Dollar-a-Pound section is actually $1.50 per pound on all days except Friday. Good finds and fun to look through.

    Clothes by the pound still a thing after all these years. And it's only gone up .50 cents (to $1.50) since I was a kid.

    Very unique. I thought I walked into a teenagers bedroom, but it all worked. It was sorta fun rummaging around. Costume store was a homerun.

    Sell clothes you don't wear anymore! Drop off your items, come back in a few hours, and get cash or a gift certificate.

    In general not much, if any for big and tall dudes. If you wear larger than a 40" waist you'll be SOL.

    Only bring threads to sell if your whole collection is junk: the buyers don't want anything that looks like something one might wear unironically. Read more
