NASHUA, NH—Looking over his shoulder to make sure no one else copped his find, local thrifter Brian Gresbaum told reporters Thursday he had struck gold with a vintage Amazon Essentials jacket from 2021. “Oh my god, there’s no way this is an authentic Amazon Essential soft-shell jacket from their fall 2021 collection,” said Gresbaum, explaining that $10 was a steal for the item, especially given that the jacket originally retailed for $15. “You can tell that it’s an all-synthetic polyester and spandex blend just from the feel of the fabric. And there’s no beating the quality of this made-in-Vietnam stuff. They really do make it exactly like they used to.” At press time, sources confirmed the Amazon Essentials jacket had completely disintegrated the second Gresbaum put on the coat.
