MisterBibs Vintage for men

MisterBibs is vintage for men, with an edge. Work wear, street style, rugged garments, unique accessories. Thanks for stopping by - please enjoy 10% off your first order with coupon code: WOW10MISTERBIBS

We are Jen and Vince. We first partnered on Etsy in 2012 when we opened MisterBibs Vintage together, the menswear division of Morning Glorious which Jen founded in 2000. We owned a retail store in Vermont that was chosen as one of the "Top Ten Best Small Vintage Shops in America" by USA Today. Our Etsy shop is our collection of our best men's vintage workwear, coats, shirts, t-shirts, jackets, sweaters, trousers, and cool accessories like unusual ties, eyewear and cufflinks. We enjoy selling high quality menswear from past decades that's just a little bit gritty, edgy or quirky! So we hunt for tough coats that get you through the winter, great flannels and printed silk shirts, warm sweaters and fine brocade jackets for your nights out. We like unusual prints, unexpected colors, handsome tweeds, graphic tees, rad shoes, famous-maker fedoras - all the best things for gents, but not commonly found.

When you buy from us, you can expect to receive a well made item, carefully packaged, in good condition, shipped promptly. Our 18 years of experience means we are knowledgeable sellers who place a high priority on customer service. Please add our shop to your favorites and follow us on Instagram - @misterbibsvintage and @morninggloriousvintage

Returns and exchange details
- All items are unique TRUE vintage pieces, meaning they are at least 20 years old or older, and are sold "AS IS" on Etsy. We do NOT accept returns! However, if we have made a major error or a significant oversight in the listing, regarding the size or the condition, and if you are not satisfied with your purchase, get in touch with us by Etsy convo or email and we'll do our best to rectify the situation. We are experienced dealers offering excellent customer service - so if you're unhappy, we'll always do what we can to make it right for you.

- ABOUT SIZE - We provide garment MEASUREMENTS in the listing details, according to standard tailor's measurement methods, so please know your measurements -- and remember, a garment needs to be bigger than you are, so you can move and breathe in it. For example, if your chest is 38 inches, your blazer style jacket should measure 40 inches so you are comfortable wearing it. If your chest is 38 inches, you wear an outerwear coat that measures 42 inches.

- ABOUT COLOR - Colors may look different on different monitors and mobile devices! Please feel free to ask us questions or request more details or photos before purchasing. We do our best to accurately describe colors and to present images of our products that are white balanced and color correct. If the exact shade of an item is critical, PLEASE ask us what the PANTONE swatch is for this item, we'll be happy to check it before you buy. Note that we do NOT offer money back refunds over color discrepancy issues! You are however free to return anything for any reason in exchange for store credit.

- In most cases where we do agree to process a return, we reserve the right to charge a 20% restocking fee, which covers the actual costs to us of re-listing, cleaning when needed, and staff and materials expenses when returning a sold item back to inventory. When we accept a return, the buyer always pays for outgoing and return shipping.

- If your original purchase included Free Shipping, and you return an item for a refund, an exchange or for store credit, the actual postage we spent to send it to you will be deducted from your shop credit balance.

- On some items, we can not accept a return/exchange under any circumstances, and these include all forms of underwear, socks, boxer shorts, swim trunks, anything deadstock vintage sealed in its original package, New with Tags, and anything worn on the body in such a way that it is considered an "intimate" item. We also do not take returns on Sale items or items purchased on layaway.

- ABOUT CONDITION - We sell vintage items that are in GOOD, VERY GOOD, or EXCELLENT shape. We also occasionally sell "Fair to Poor" or DISTRESSED vintage items, which means the garment may look very worn, be ripped or beat up, but is still desirable as a fashion statement. When we sell DEADSTOCK items, they may be unworn but still have flaws from storage issues. Please ask any questions before purchasing.

- We routinely wash and steam clean cottons, polyesters and silks, and "home-dry-clean" woolens and some rayon, but we do not wash items that look and smell clean already to us and present nicely, and we do not have our inventory professionally dry cleaned. We make every attempt to send you a clean garment ready to wear, but you may wish to launder or dry clean your vintage purchase, regardless. We do not have pets at the shop, but we can not guarantee that the item did not come from a pet owner's home. A stray pet hair, a lingering smoke smell, a chore coat that smells like barn loft hay and a blouse that smells like its owner's perfume - even after laundering - are not uncommon issues with vintage clothing.

Vintage clothing, by its nature, often has little imperfections or signs of previous wear which are not considered major flaws. Jewelry metal may have age patina. Shoes may have scuffs or show wear on the soles. Clothing may have minor fraying, small holes or spots, prior alterations and other issues. Our items have a rich history and may be 25, 50 or even 100+ years old. They are not "vintage style," they are REAL vintage, they are wearable and were chosen because they have character, but they are NOT NEW items.
Payment
We accept Etsy Direct Checkout for all payment methods, and Etsy gift cards, through integrated check out.

If you'd like us to reserve an item, we can do that as a courtesy for up to a maximum of 48 hours. (Reserves of longer than 48 hours are no longer available, as they can cause both in-house and customer confusion and frustration.) Please note that convenient Layaway payment plans are now offered by Klarna for our items over $50!
Shipping
We ship orders within 1-2 business days of receiving payment, usually it's same or next day shipping, unless the order is received over the weekend or it falls on a postal holiday. We ship most orders with USPS, occasionally oversized parcels with UPS. We ship International orders to Canada with USPS and to all other countries with Asendia. We do not use Fed Ex and we can not permit the customer to schedule their own shipping, sorry!

Items over $100 going anywhere in the world will be sent with complimentary Insurance included. ALL orders including First Class are sent with Delivery Confirmation and Tracking.

We are happy to ship internationally. But we can not falsify a US Customs form, it is a Federal crime -- Please do not ask us to mark a false purchase price, or say it is a gift!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS -- Please be aware that you are responsible for paying customs fees or import tax in your country which may be associated with receiving your Etsy purchase. These fees are not within a seller's control. (The UK, in particular, will charge you VAT or "value added tax," to receive your item sent from the USA.)
