top 10 things to check when buying vintage clothes

Here are the top 10 things to check when buying vintage clothes:

  1. Condition: Check for any visible signs of wear, tear, or damage such as holes, stains, or fading.
  2. Fabric: Ensure the fabric is still soft and strong, not brittle or thin.
  3. Size: Verify that the clothing still fits or can be altered to fit properly.
  4. Authenticity: Ensure that the clothing is the real deal and not a reproduction or fake.
  5. Brand and era: Identify the brand and era of the clothing to determine its value and style.
  6. Cleanliness: Evaluate if the clothing is clean and free of any odors or fragrances.
  7. Label and care instructions: Check for any missing or damaged labels or care instructions.
  8. Hardware: Check zippers, buttons, and snaps to see if they are in good working order.
  9. Shape: Observe the shape of the clothing, checking for any signs of stretching or misshapen areas.
  10. Price: Compare prices of similar vintage clothing items to determine if the price is fair and reasonable.
