Real Vintage Clothing

Real Vintage Clothing

Real Vintage Clothing is a more elegant-seeming euphemism for "old" clothes. Vintage clothing refers to new or second hand garments that originated from a previous era in time. The phrase or term vintage can also be  used in connection with a retail outlet, like a "vintage clothing store." Vintage can also be descriptive as when used to describe clothing, "That dress is vintage."

Old Vintage Clothing that was produced before the 1920s is often referred to as antique clothing and clothing that was produced  from the 1920s up through the 1980s is considered vintage clothing. The term Retro can also be used to describe vintage clothing and is actually short for retrospective and usually refers to clothing that reflects the style of a previous era. Clothing produced more recently is usually called modern or contemporary fashion.

Most real vintage clothing has been previously worn, but some vintage clothing can still be found that is new old stock. Vintage warehouse stock  is scarce and more valuable than vintage clothes that have been worn, especially if the vintage pieces have their original tags.

There has always been some demand for old and/or second hand clothing. Current market trends and the awareness, collect-ability, demand and desire to wear and acquire vintage clothing had increased dramatically since the early 1990s.

This increase in interest is due to the increased visibility and exposure of real vintage clothing. Vintage clothing is increasingly worn by many famous celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Kate Moss, and Dita von Teese.

There is an increasing interest in environmental concerns in terms of reusing, recycling and repairing clothing rather than throwing it away. There is also a resurgence of historically based sub-cultural groups like rockabilly and swing dancing that has also played a part in the demand for vintage clothing jackets and vintage clothing shirts.
