vintage condition scale
The allure of vintage and antique garments and textiles usually comes from the quality, rarity and beauty of the heritage piece. With that being the case most of the items have experienced a life before reaching our hands. To specify the condition of each pieces we have come up with a scale so you can have a clear idea in regards to the item that you are purchasing.
MINT- Garment has virtually no wear, refers to vintage that either looks like it hasn't or actually has never been worn.
EXCELLENT- With consideration of the age, expected minimal signs of wear, but hardly any of note.
VERY GOOD- Garment displays normal signs of wear expected for age with some minor visible flaws but will not detract from wear.
GOOD- Garment shows signifiant signs of wear, but overall intact. Could use mending and/or cleaning.
FAIR- A piece of vintage that is extremely worn, fragile, and/or has significant flaws that make it difficult to be wearable, but could serve as a superb inspiration piece.
