So, about 80 percent of clothes I own are graphic tees, tank tops, skater hoodies, cargo pants, etc. I still wear most of it, I'm 19 going on 20. I noticed it looks quite out of place now, especially when I go out with my brother and his friends, who are upper 20's, all dressed in nicer clothes, jeans, henleys, button down shirts, more adult things.

So I don't need to get rid of all of it, I understand. But the urge exists for my wardrobe to grow up now. Trouble is, not sure how I would afford too many new clothes right now, I don't want to just throw away things. Even donating stuff will cause me to be out of clothes eventually. I would just keep the few jeans and the couple button down shirts, but the 20 or so graphic tees and "skater" clothes I feel silly wearing now. Where can I get a bit of money for these things?

A consignment shop.  But you won't get much.  OTOH, you might get cheap clothes at a consignment shop, whether you sell your old tees or not.  Believe it or not, you can find decent clothes there, though it's tougher than at the mall.

eBay, Craigslist, consignment stores.
Can you get your parents to buy you some "investment-grade" clothes?
Buy second-hand if you can, quality stuff does not wear out easily nor goes out of style.

donate at GoodWill then go around front and buy from GoodWill.

Same at St Vincent DePaul

Seriously, this isn't sarcasm:

Find the local online "mom groups" on Facebook or Craigslist or Kijiji or Reddit and post up an ad for your t-shirts there, either as lot or as a X$/shirt sort of things. Some mom out there will be happy to buy a bunch of skater t-shirts for her kid at a discounted rate. Stick the mom groups because general buy and sell groups are flakey; you'll get a bunch of lowball offers and the ones who promise to buy will flake out at the last minute, probably without giving you any notice. The mom groups are serious business though. No fucking around. You'll probably get competing offers.

Your favorite things about raising a boy

So today my wife and I found out that we are having a boy. This is our first child, so we are still experiencing everything for the first time, and it's a wild ride. We're very excited. I thought that since we're having a boy, I'd ask all you fathers of boys what your favorite parts of raising boys are. What do you enjoy most? On the other hand, what do you enjoy least?

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
