We offer a large selection of designers and manufacturers that span the 20th and early 21st century. Sizing varies greatly, so we have outlined our measuring and size estimating process.
The best way to know if a vintage item will fit you is to take a garment that fits you well, similar to the one you are interested in purchasing, and measure it the way we measure ours.
We lay all garments flat and measure as follows*:
BUST - under arm to under arm across the front and then double that measurement.
Measure the WAISTBAND, widest part of the HIPS, widest part of the THIGH on one leg and width of the CUFF, then double those measurements
WAIST - find the smallest part of the garment if there isn't an obvious seam for the waist and measure across and then double that measurement.
LENGTH - Measure from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the cuff along the side seam.
HIPS - Find the largest part of the hip area and measure flat, then double that measurement.
RISE - Measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.
LENGTH - from the nape of the neck or the top of the shoulders, depending on the style of garment. We will measure to the waist when applicable, so that you can determine if it will fit your torso, and then a waist down measurement.
INSEAM - Measure from the crotch to the bottom of the cuff along the inside seam.
SLEEVES - measure from the top of the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve. When we think that the arm opening is particularly small, we will provide that measurement as well.**
*Fabrics with stretch will have some give, we will try to mention the range of measurements that will fit comfortably.
**With dolman sleeves, the size is an estimation based on the waist as the body seamlessly joins the sleeve.
Feel free to email us with specific questions about specific measurements that we may not have included that you need to know in order to feel confident about your purchase. If you have a particularly long torso, short legs, long arms, etc.. we can help you determine whether or not a garment will work for your body.SaveSaveSave
Hot Pink 80's Oversized Jacket
This oversized vintage 1980's hot pink jacket is from an estate of high end designer vintage clothing from the 1970's and 1980's. This particular individual had an impressive collection of designers like Sonia Rykiel, Patrick Kelly, Norma Kamali, Thierry Mugler, and other well known fashion designers from the 70's and 80's.
This jacket has a label that reads "Jonathan" and I am not familiar with it, but everything she owned had the most distinctive labels, so I assume she purchased this in an exclusive boutique in the 1980's. This jacket makes a huge fashion statement with its shoulder pads, gold hardware, and bright hot pink fabric. The fabric appears to be a cashmere blend and is luxuriously soft!
This blazer is in excellent condition and our model is wearing it with a pair of vintage Glydons lace pants and a vintage Valentino hat (both sold separately). The cuffs have fab zippers and there are 4 zip front pockets! This color was particularly difficult to photograph so I'm not sure how it will appear on your monitor, if you want a Pantone match to the color, please just email me and I will gladly send one to you!
fits up to 40"
LENGTH from nape of neck
WIDTH from shoulder to shoulder across the back
