Bargain and Budget Shopping
In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro takes viewers on a field trip with $20 in his pocket. He's going to thrift stores to see what he can put together.

Alpha gives a bit of his background. He came from a family didn't have any extra money, but he was into looking good and clothing. He always went to thrift stores as he could find cool stuff that fit his budget; however, he didn't get shoes or jeans from thrift stores. You don't need a lot of cash to look like a million bucks. It takes hunting, pecking, and picking, and you do need to wash all items before wearing.

Thrift Storing Pro Tips

  • Wear a simple plain tee shirt because a lot of times dressing rooms aren't available
  • Even though items are categorized by size, everything has been shrunk. You may need to size up.

 

He hit the thrifting jack pot! The total cost was $17.66! He displays and models what he found: slate gray button-up which the fit and style are remarkable, wool sweater that's fun, and a combo of fitted button down, navy silk tie, and charcoal v-neck sweater.
