We wear vintage clothing. Every day. This is how we see it.
Excellent: great wearable condition. some signs of use from wear or long term storage.
Very good: just about excellent but more wear like loose threads, stains, missing button, wrinkles, tiny rips, moth nibbles. Gently used but certainly not abused. We do not sell junk.
Good: wearable or useful in 'as-is' condition. flaws may or may not be repairable, fixable or cleanable. for study, for collectors, for crafters, for designers looking for inspiration or to wear if you love the item and have a higher tolerance for vintage uniqueness.
Most of our items will need to be freshened by either washing, steaming, airing out or dry cleaning before wearing.
HOW WE MEASURE CLOTHING:
All clothing is buttoned or zippered closed and measured flat on a tabletop. Compare the measurements in the same way described below to a similar garment that fits you well.
We measure across the bust, waist and hips from edge to edge. Double these to gauge fit. Consider fabric stretch and personal preference when considering fit.
Shoulders, sleeves and total length are actual measurements.
Measurements are of the item, not of the body that would wear it.
Any questions, please email us. Buying clothing online can be a challenge. We're here to help.
