We wash and steam every garment, and mend items where necessary and possible. The price of the garment reflects its condition, and the time that’s gone into restoring it. Generally, vintage is pre-worn, and minor wear is to be expected. Any flaws or damage will always be noted in the description. We use the following grading system:
MINT — Virtually no wear, mostly refers to vintage that has never been worn.
EXCELLENT — Expected signs of wear, with consideration of the age, but hardly any signs of wear.
GREAT — Shows normal signs of wear expected for age with some minor visible problems but will not detract from wear.
GOOD — Garment has obvious signs of wear, but overall intact. Could use mending and/or cleaning.
