Josue Julio: Hey, guys, I’m here another day at Salvation Army. Let’s check it out.

My first stop is usually shoes, so I’m gonna head there first. I think these are winners already. We just got here too. This is awesome. No way. Creative Recs. These are great. These are really popular shoes. They even have a nice little Chelsea boot. Got some great stuff.

Let me go check out some of this men’s over here. So my thing when I’m looking, I look for fabrics that might catch my eye. Maybe a pattern or a fabric or a texture, something that just looks a little different. Like, look at this. This shirt. This pattern is great. Yeah, see, look at this shirt. Good texture. It’s a little long. 2X. But stuff like this is, like, what I love to keep an eye out for. Sometimes it might be a fun logo or just the texture of the shirt.

With a smaller store like this, it’s always good to just slow it down, kind of look through, and just see what combinations you can create, because you just never know, you might find something, and you might be able to create a really fun color combination.

Oh, wow. Look at this. Great color. It’s a little bit of a mock neck. I kind of like this because it’s a little cartoonish, basketball, Antetokounmpo. This is really cool. Really challenge yourself and see what you can make. See what you can put together, and just make that a good discipline to just style and constantly think that way.

Okay, off to the next aisle. Oh, nice. It’s just like a nice, simple windbreaker jacket. Kind of reminds me of a Members Only, something super simple to kind of throw on on a cooler night out here in California. Look at this. It’s a great layering piece here. I’m going to pull this.

So now we’re moving into some of the heavier options. Oh, nice. It’s double breasted with gold buttons. I’ll put it aside for now. Really like these pockets. Add it for now.

Okay. We found another new rack. Oh, look at this. Look at this shirt. And look at that. It’s a Pendleton. Awesome. Yeah. Let’s go give these guys a try.

Okay. Tried on this guy here. This sweater. This color is really good. Sleeves are a little short. I really like this color. It’s really nice. This mock neck is one of my go to. You can wear it with so much. Awesome.

So outfit change. I really dig this look. These pants are really smooth. They’re a little long. I mean, if you partner up with a tailor, this is a done deal. But this look is, like, comfortable and these shoes work for so much. They’re really comfortable. There’s like a memory foam in there.

But this outfit, it’s a really good one. Good pieces. Sweet. So this shirt is great. Fabric is really nice. For this, something like this that’s a little bit big or oversized. I’m going to kind of do a cuff. It kind of gives this a little bit more shape. And it’s not just this big, boxy fabric.

So I would wear this just with a nice, simple outfit. You can either do, like, a light colored pant, like what I’m wearing, or even a darker option to bring out the black. Add some accessories, and then you’re good to go. I really like this. Good.

So this one’s great. Super simple. I mean, you can do a dress shirt under this. This is a little bit more fitted, but I would just wear this for the summer. Some good stuff here. This is gonna work. This is nice. Just got to get it pressed a little bit, but size wise is good. I love the touch of the gold buttons. Just breaks things up a little bit. Get a little pocket square. Good to go.

And again, we’ve got our ARC center. This cause is just amazing. Definitely come by if you see this. Scan the QR code and see if there’s a way for you to connect and make a difference.

So keep these guys. Every month, they have a little discount form here. Get 25% off, which is like, it makes this even better, makes it such a sweet deal.

Do you want to use it? Yeah, let’s do that. These are so comfortable. Made out with some really good deals.

And something that I wanted to share with you guys is, one, they have the shopthesalvationarmy.com which is such a great opportunity to just find some really good stuff. And you can come and support your local Salvation Army store by donating anything that you just don’t use as much or you’re just looking to kind of change things up a little bit, think of Salvation Army.
