Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for, they may however have a blemish or two. We try our best to note any damage/major wear of each garment - although we may sometimes overlook things - which we do apologise for.
Please do not expect all vintage garments to come perfect, unless stated so.

Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today. Most vintage garments do not have the stretch or give of modern fabrics. To ensure the best fit, we suggest you measure (twice) a similar garment and compare it to the measurements we have listed.

We cannot offer refunds for fit issues, variances in monitor colors, or buyer’s remorse since these things are out of our control.


Please message us with any questions before purchasing.
We believe the customer does hold some responsibility when purchasing vintage items, and should be familiar with the nature of vintage clothing before purchasing a vintage garment from any online shop.
