Buy/Resale in Bangkok?

Hi guys,

I am hosting a dinner party tonight and I need one pair of slacks / jeans / pants, etc. - the place where I'm going requires them. I'm backpacking and only have shorts, and have no plans to bring them with me once I leave BKK. So wearing one night only and then giving them away or throwing them out.

Is there any good stores that do buy and resale (kind of like Buffalo Exchanges - www.facebook.com/buffaloexchange) - inexpensive but also good quality?

Let me know, thank you.

Danny

You can buy a nice enough new pair for a few baht at place like Tesco, Big C. Check the many vendors who set up in these stores.

HOSTING a dinner party!

Even from some street vendors or other stores you probably can get a pair of trousers for around 300 - 450 baht. Unless you have an unusual shape or size.

Buy some long pants and wear or bring them to your next hostel and sell them to another tourist.

I'm guessing it won't be much of a party if you have to buy used pants, maybe half a chicken breast each? :-)

Just yesterday, I saw 3 long racks of sport shirts, slacks and jackets for 100~150 baht, at my local Big C's common area.

Big C.

Give them for free to a steet begger when you are done. They'll know where to sell them.

Lol, it's at the Long Table, and they have a dress code requiring pants.... I was able to find some fake Levi jeans called "Levays" at a Sunday market for 200 baht. If anyone wants them after tonight (size 33 waist) send me a message on Twitter (https://twitter.com/dandanflood) - they're all yours!!

Thanks guys for all the feedback!
