The Story Behind the Idea

For me, clothing isn't just the stuff you sleepily pick out at random in your closet (or if you're like me, off the floor) in the morning and throw on your back.

It's a story, it's a feeling, it's a soundtrack and a hope you want to live out for the day.

With Bear and Twine, I'm not just selling you clothes. I'm giving you carefully curated moments: Wednesday date nights, afternoon trips to delis to read your newspaper, walks in the park just as spring turns into summer, and balcony lunches with your friends and leftover pizza.

There's a feeling, a vibe to each piece. Each dress will help you live out the fairy tale of that day and each sweater will give that cozy hug you were after. And that's why each grandpa sweater and pleated dress is special. That and that they're the best ones you'll find this side of the Mississippi! Enjoy!

    I still remember when I bought my first Vogue magazine when I was 15, with nothing more than a pocket full of quarters I carefully hunted in couch cushions and coat pockets. Ever since then, I was obsessed with clothes & the stories they help tell.

Refunds and Exchanges
All garments are measured to help you gauge if it's your correct fit. Because of this, no returns are available except in extreme cases.

However, within 14 days exchanges could be possible if the sucker *really* doesn't fit (how sad is a dress that hangs and is never worn?). In that case, be prepared to pay for the extra shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Since all of my items are vintage and pre-loved, be prepared for some wear and tear. But I will always point out any slight stains, tears, or other small imperfections!
