Swanky Vintage has brought the fun of vintage and retro back to the future...

All of the items listed on Swanky Vintage have been personally handpicked by me with a variety in style. I'm sure that you'll find many pieces that call out your name.

I try to describe all items as accurately as possible noting any obvious imperfections such as discoloration, loose stitching, snags, and/or stains if any. Please note when purchasing vintage and retro articles, that they most likely have been previously enjoyed, through numerous cleanings, and may also have been stored for many years - therefore showing normal signs of age and wear in some form or another.

Please be sure to read all information provided in each item's description. I take great care in providing accurate information and photos to insure you get what you purchase.

How I Rate Vintage (20+ years old) Clothing:

~ Mint ~

Item is in as good as condition as when it was brand new.

~ Excellent ~

An exceptionally cared for item in excellent used condition
with very little, if any sign of wear.

~ Very Good ~

A well cared for item in very good used condition. Slightly more signs of wear from use or more significant wear that is difficult to see unless looked for and/or is not visible when worn. Examples include but are not limited to: staining on inside linings, a small spot or snag that is not easily detected or on an item that would otherwise be considered excellent but for the small flaw.

~ Good ~

Still wearable but has obvious wear or flaw; may need a repair or is perfect for upcycling in some way.

~ As Found ~

An honest piece damaged beyond repair. Valuable for display, costume or designers' study; pattern template

NOTE: 99.9% of all Swanky Vintage's clothing is either in Mint, Excellent or Very Good condition. I only consider selling lesser condition clothing if the style or rarity is "wanted" enough to warrant the item "As Found"..

Additional policies and FAQs

Sizes shown on vintage garments usually run smaller than today's size standards. Because of this, I take time to measure each item individually (laid flat, measured on the outside then doubled in inches) and include these measurements in the item's description to ensure the proper fit for you.

It's advisable that you also compare these measurements to the measurements of a similar well-fitting garment from your closet to determine if a garment would fit you correctly.

Thank you and happy shopping!
