We make every effort to maintain objective standards while assessing the condition of vintage items. However, it's important to note that each item has a unique history that predates its arrival to us. We take care to accurately mention any specific flaws in the item's condition so that our grading team can evaluate it accordingly. However, for any flaws that may be subjective or difficult to describe, we are cautious and tend to grade the item lower, from A to B, due to our high quality standard. Our aim is to exceed your expectations by delivering items that are of the highest quality.
Our team of highly experienced grading experts have been working with vintage clothing for years, honing their skills and knowledge to ensure that each item is thoroughly inspected and graded to the highest standards. They meticulously check for any flaws or imperfections in the fabric, such as stains, tears, or discoloration, as well as any alterations that may have been made before the item arrived with us. This attention to detail ensures that our customers receive only the best quality vintage clothing, and that every item is accurately graded and priced accordingly.
Each item is checked by eye to inspect the overall condition and wearability which assist when a grade is given.
In some cases refrences to the actual item will be used to ensure the quality and authenticity is correct.
These notes are then passed to a second grader who will read the inspection sheet and agree or disagre with the intented grade.
