Condition Notes

At Modig, we pride ourselves in selling vintage items that are in excellent condition and ready to use. Everything in our inventory has been professionally cleaned and stored in a climate controlled, pest-free environment.

All of our items are pre-owned, and as such we do our best to mention any flaw in detail, including photographs when appropriate. Slight imperfections are part of the history of vintage garments, but it is our goal to make sure that you know exactly what you are getting when you shop with us.

Here is a guide to condition for our site:

DEADSTOCK or AS NEW: May include original tags or may appear unworn.

EXCELLENT - Very minor to no visible flaws found. May have been washed and worn, but was well taken care of and stored properly.

VERY GOOD - Close to excellent but might not appear as "crisp" as it would have been originally but is still a wonderful piece. There may be an inconspicuous spot or a few loose beads, sequins, etc. 

NOTE: Most of our items are included in the above categories unless stated otherwise. We only list items in the categories below if they are extremely rare, unique, or have an important label.

GOOD - Definitely wearable but there is a small spot we couldn’t remove, a tiny hole, or slight fade, etc. 

FAIR - When we sell garments in this category, it is mainly because they are from an important designer or rare pieces from the late 1800s or early part of the 20th century. They are generally fragile textiles, and are meant to be used for study or display purposes.

We have been selling vintage clothing for over two decades, and have many wonderful customers that have bought with us since the beginning. To build and maintain that kind of trust and relationship, we pride ourselves on cleanliness, proper storage techniques, and sharp eyes for flaws.
