We take pride in the retro pieces we sell. We always ensure if there are any faults that will affect the item they will be clearly listed. If there are any adjustments or repairs to the item they will also be clearly listed.
When we state an item being "in good vintage condition" this will refer to it being in a worn condition making it look very old in years but with plenty of life left. When we state something being "as new condition" this will refer to the fact that it has most likely been stored away or has had very little use. If an item is in "great condition" this will mean the item will have signs of light general wear with no concerns. When an item has been described as rare this will be due to a search on how many were issued, the issue date, and how often we have seen the item in our combined 25 years in fashion experience. When a item is described as limited this will mean a one off series was made with no more issues being released.
It is important to us that you get a true life picture of the product you are buying. Once you click onto the product description you will be shown true life photos, without any special lighting or photo-shop, just a truly naked picture. While this may seem amateur to some, for us it means every customer can see exactly what they are buying and the true condition of the product.

We realise that some sizes may be smaller or larger than the label indicated. Every size listed will be a true size, if for example a vintage Nike sneaker states a size 7 and is clearly smaller the size will be listed at whatever we feel suits the shape or size so maybe listed as a 6 or 5.5 for example. We have many years experience of sizes and shapes so our judgment tends to be a realistic one. Below is a simple chart of what we measure when listing our clothing. We will always state measurements in inches measuring the length, the chest and sleeve. Below is an example of those areas we measure, also the chart gives a rough indication of what a small, medium or large lable size tends to measure.
