Vintage Size & Condition Guide
**Please note this guide is relating to sales of our vintage items only and not new stock. When purchasing any item from our store it will be clearly marked whether the item is vintage or not.**
Condition of Vintage Items:
East 73rd handpicks and sells the best quality vintage items, most of which are in excellent condition unless otherwise stated.
Due to the nature of vintage almost all of the vintage items we sell have been previously owned and worn and therefore may have slight imperfections or signs of wear. We strive to give the best possible description and any noticeable marks or signs of wear and tear will be mentioned in the item description. With vintage items slight flaws or blemishes often enhance the authenticity of each piece and behind each vintage item there is a story to be told.
All of our vintage clothing items are dry cleaned before we sell them.
The following grading system is used to describe vintage items listed on our website:
- New – A vintage item which has not been previously worn and still has the original tags attached.
- Excellent Condition – A vintage item which appears to be as new. Previously worn but flawless, shows very little or no signs of wear and tear and is free from visible imperfections.
- Good Condition – A vintage item which has minor signs of wear and tear but is still perfectly wearable. Any noticeable marks will be mentioned in the item description.
- Fair Condition – A vintage item with some visible marks such as discolouration in places, small defects or small stains, nicks or holes. Any noticeable marks or defects will be mentioned in the item description.
We do not sell items that are un-wearable and any items that need repairing will have the repairs done before we sell them unless otherwise stated.
The price of vintage items listed on our website will reflect the condition stated in the item description. As vintage items are very delicate we recommend that our customers dry clean any vintage items they purchase from us.

Size of Garments:
The size stated on vintage items are often different to today’s clothing sizes and quite often vintage items are not labelled at all. We use today’s standardised sizing measurements to give our customers a more accurate idea of what size the items are in terms of today’s standard sizes.
If you require exact measurements of a particular item (i.e. – hips, waist, full length, bust, etc) please e-mail email@example.com or call us on 087-355-0889 and we will be happy to oblige.
