At Dressing Vintage, we pride ourselves in selling vintage garments that are in excellent condition and ready to wear. If there are any issues at all with anything we have listed on our site, we do our best to mention them all in detail, including photographs when appropriate. You might find a loose thread or button now and then that we miss, but it is our goal to make sure that you know exactly what you are getting when you shop with us!
Here is a guide to condition for our site:
MINT - In "as new" condition. May include original tags or may appear unworn.
EXCELLENT - No issues found, likely has been worn but well taken care of and stored properly.
VERY GOOD - Mostly in excellent condition but may need a hook and eye replaced, or have a small seam separation or a few missing sequins, a button, etc. But nothing found that is not easily repaired! We will mention any of those issues found in the item's description.
GOOD - Definitely wearable but might have a pin hole, a spot we were unable to remove, or a tear that is not in the seam but in an inconspicuous spot. It might just be that the item doesn't appear as "crisp" as it would have been originally but is still a wonderful piece! This is a great opportunity to get something at a very affordable price that is still a one of a kind piece!
FAIR - When we sell garments in this category, it is mainly because they are from an important designer or rare pieces from the late 1800s or early part of the 20th century. These are usually meant to be used for study or display purposes.
We have been selling vintage clothing for over a decade, and have many wonderful customers that have bought with us since the beginning. To build and maintain that kind of trust and relationship, we pride ourselves on cleanliness, proper storage techniques, and sharp eyes for flaws.
