The ins and outs of vintage fashion in St. Louis 

In honor of St. Louis Fashion Week, we go behind the counter at Rag-O-Rama to see what sells and what stinks in the hip world of vintage clothing. A men's version of the fashion game may come around if the masses call for it.

Rachel Traub, of Conneticut, left, and Hannah Rosenfeld, of Alabama, right. Both are Washington University students looking to sell some clothing to Rag-O-Rama. Click ahead to see how they fared.

Rag-O-Rama employee Nate Bethel and one of the store's best assets, sick Nike sneaks, Bethel reported.
Nick Lucchesi
Jenny Beausang of Rag-O-Rama said this red Lacoste Polo is definitely a keeper.
Nick Lucchesi
This itchy wool V-neck vest, however? No dice. "We're going to pass one this one," Beausang politely says.
Nick Lucchesi
A T-Shirt from your high school dance? No thanks.
Nick Lucchesi
"Margaret Sanger is my homegirl?" Again, this one's going back home.
Nick Lucchesi
This brown tank-top's also going back home.
Nick Lucchesi
Tiny Abercrombie & Fitch sweater? Put that thing back next to the fireplace in the mountain cabin.
Nick Lucchesi
Pink shirt is just too loose and worn.
Nic
A no on this shirt as well. Beausang said Rag-O-Rama accepts only about 8 to 10 percent of submitted clothing.
Nick Lucchesi
True Religion jeans? Oh yes. Normally flying about $100, this denim will sell for $38.50 at Rag-O-Rama, Beausang says.
Nick Lucchesi
These jeans by Citizens of Humanity are also worth buying. They'll be priced at $36.50.
Nick Lucchesi
Delia's black dress is also a go. It'll be $14.50 when tagged for resale at Rag-O-Rama.
Nick Lucchesi
This seemingly giant white shirt will be sold for $14.50 at Rag-O-Rama.
Nick Lucchesi
No sir, Juicy Couture. This jacket is also missing a drawstring.
