A store that tries to mass produce the "thrift store vintage look." My question is what's cool about buying mass produced "poser" vintage? People who started the thrift store movement did it to make a statement against "brands" in general, and corporate America. Urban Outfitters is a publicly traded company on the stock market and all they care about are their sales, and keeping investors happy. A far cry from being "indie" or "underground." I would much rather support a local thrift store then, try to obtain that stolen, exploited look from these guys.
That's a cool tye dye shirt, did you make it? No, I bought it for $112 at Urban Outfitters. It's a good thing I own stock in the company, they know how to exploit the youth, and making them believe they are indie, and underground.
