Understanding Vintage Clothing

Vintage can be defined as well-loved clothing, usually pre-worn, from past decades. Vintage is at least 20 years old. My collection ranges from 1920's to the 1980's. Each item is dated by era as close as possible based on styles, fabrics, zippers, snaps, labels, etc. Occasionally, we are able to confirm with the manufacturer the date of manufacture.

Please note that most vintage clothing will show small signs of wear and some pieces may display noticeable wear. Each piece is carefully inspected for flaws before it is listed for sale. We try to describe all items, in detail, accompanied by detailed photographs displaying any flaws. Vintage clothing may not be perfect, but it is unique, classic and a conversation starter.

Vintage sizing is very different from modern sizing. Please be sure to carefully read the listing’s measurements. All measurements are taken “flat.” Estimated sizes are to be used as a guideline only. The best way to find out if an item will fit is to take your own measurements and compare.
