In the clip, he explains: “This Carharrt camouflage jacket for £25 – that was painful.

“Then I found this North Face jacket – £38 they wanted…and the zip was broke! £38 – let that sink in.”

He goes on to say how he then also stumbled upon an Aquascutum jacket that was also £38, along with a Napapijri jacket for £45.

“Again, no need of it to be that high,” the social media user says.

“Then I found these Balenciaga’s for £175…without the box.”

After noting how a Tesla jacket was priced at £75, which he says “makes no sense”, he points out: “Then there was these Gucci heels for £225 – that is absolutely mental.”

He captioned the post: “Just showing you all its not sunshine and rainbows when thrifting in the UK.”

The video has since gone viral, racking up over 676,000 views and hundreds of comments – with very mixed reviews.

“It’s for CHARITY! Not to improve your profit margins,” wrote one.

A second penned: “People getting mad that charity shops are pricing clothes fairly so they can’t make money reselling them.”

A third commented: “Rather pay those prices in a CHARITY shop than I would a Reseller.”

Meanwhile, a fourth noted: “Stops resellers – perfect!”

And one more added: “I’ve seen a Primark T-shirt they wanted more then what it was to buy new.”
