BUYING VINTAGE

The clothing we sell will be at least 25 years old so expect some natural wear and flaws - it is rare to come across anything in mint condition. 

We check all items very carefully and do our utmost to note any flaws or damage - we won't sell anything we wouldn't be happy to wear ourselves.

Colour representation may differ depending on the monitor you use, it's difficult to get an accurate representation of a true colour so please feel free to ask if you're unsure.

SIZING

Vintage clothing sizes can be very different from today's sizes so we've provided detailed measurements for each item. If you are unsure about the fit of an item, the easiest way to tell how it will size up is to compare the measurements to those of an item of clothing you own that fits you well.

Measurements are taken from the outside of the item, with the garment laid flat, and then doubled.

Garment length, unless otherwise stated, is measured from the back of the collar seam to the hem. 

Sleeve length is measured from the armpit to the cuff. 

The inside leg length is taken from the crotch to the hem.

Remember to allow approximately one inch on top of your actual measurements to move around and breathe inside the clothing.

To make things easier, we have also tagged clothing  with approximate contemporary sizes so you can filter search results. 

 

PAYMENT AND ORDERING

Payment is made through Paypal using the checkout system on each item page. You don't need a Paypal account to buy from us, simply enter your debit card or credit card details and your payment will be taken immediately, safely and securely.


POSTAGE COSTS

All UK postage is already included in the price  - all items over £50 will be sent Special Delivery, items under £50 will be sent Recorded Signed For and items priced below £15 will be sent by standard post. 

International postage is calculated by weight in the checkout system and goods will be sent by Airmail.

You may incur customs charges at your end of things and this is entirely the buyer's responsibility. We regret that we are unable to label a package as a "gift" or to misrepresent the value as this constitutes fraud.


POSTING YOUR ITEM

When payment has been made, the item will be dispatched within 2 working days. 


RETURNS

As per Distance Selling Regulations, UK buyers may return unsatisfactory items within 7 days of receipt. Please let us know, preferably by email, if you are intending to do this. Returns must be sent by Signed For delivery and refunds will only given once the item has been received and checked over thoroughly. Only the original item cost will be refunded not any return postage cost incurred.

We're afraid we can't offer International returns, unless the item has been significantly misrepresented.
