Hollywood's plenitude of thrift shops are stocked with a 7:1 ratio of "Tapia-Dominguez Family Reunion" tees to sweet cowboy button-downs. Skip the chaff with Hollywood Vintage.
Launched by an entrepreneur/actress you might recall as "Casting Director #2" from the lesbian drama Changing Spots, this online storefront combs racks all over town to find the cream of the thrift-store crop. To better inform your purchase, she notes any flaws ("a few snags…but they're hardly noticeable"), and measures for size, in case the tag's missing, or the piece comes from an era when cocaine abuse torpedoed the standards for "Large". Selection's constantly revolving, but they've featured everything from a Speed-Racer bowling shirt to a flapper-printed tie to a show-stopping pleather jacket w/ multicolored, suede shoulder patches -- an essential prop for the timeless party game, "Osmond, or Jackson?"
