Vintage thrifting isn’t for the faint of heart. This comes with passion + a true desire to connect. Connect deeply and to the story behind, with and through this find. The story you will create together and the stories this item holds within it. There’s a particular joy that all vintage hunters + buyers hold that others can’t quite understand. 

For Frank, it’s a connection that confirmed his decision to leave real estate + has continued to affirm this with every sell and new city discovered. For Ty, Simplicist nostalgia. When we asked, why, they left us with:

“Living in a van means less is more. Sustainability has become essential to Two Guys Good Buys and it’s important that we remain this way. We consume less and produce less waste. Similarly, how we source our inventory is important because it allows us to perpetuate sustainable change in fashion as well. In a nut shell, the idea is to live sustainably, inherently spend less so we can continue doing more. The importance lies in the freedoms we are granted by this way of life.”

A T shirt is all about the graphic, comfort + color in our opinion. We frolicked around Tres Palamas in this baby paired with all of our favorite bottoms, but these vintage fire red Channel sweats was a favorite match made.
