All items are sourced primarily in New York and around the world. All items sold are authentic, vintage items. As is the case when purchasing vintage, we try to describe the elements of the item the best we can, regarding sizing, condition, and provenance. Please read descriptions carefully and thoroughly before purchasing any item. And ask any questions as needed. 


All items are measured with the item laying flat. The measurements given are of the clothing and you should account for a little wiggle room in certain areas. You may want to compare the measurements against a similar garment that fits you well. 

We always try to get the most accurate measurements, but depending on the cut of the garment, approximations may be made. Our modern size estimates are just that, estimates, so please make sure to measure, measure, measure! If you have any questions, just ask!


Absolutely Perfect: Mint without a single flaw to note. No signs of wear. Very rare, even in deadstock items. Like new.
Near mint: The item appears to be in new condition and never used. on super-close inspection, one or two barely detectable signs of wear remind us this item is not new. 
Excellent: Item shows only the slightest signs of wear, typical from occasional use. No major flaws. One or two minor notables which in no way detract from overall beauty. 
Very good: Wearable with a few minor surface flaws. Imperfections are not noticeable and do not detract from garment. 
Good: minor flaws, some noticeable when worn, but easily overlooked. structurally sound and wearable


It is always advisable to hand wash or dry clean your vintage clothing, particularly the older stuff. Please feel free to ask us for tips on particular garments. All of our items have been cleaned either by hand or by a professional dry cleaner before they come to you, unless otherwise noted.
