Since the Monday before last, GQ‘s been doling out the “affordable style” secrets. Required reading all, its 9th Post (out of 10) deals with the tricky business of vintage shopping:

• Certain brands increase in value as they age: classic-era Levi’s, Vuarnet, old-school Nike, supply-store-era Abercrombie & Fitch, and The North Face.

• Leather boots, flannels, and dress shirts with monogrammed initials (that aren’t yours) are all excellent candidates for vintage.

• Western-style shirts, however, should be left behind. They’re always cut too long to be tucked in. But these days, the only guys who tuck in western shirts are professional bull riders.
