vintage clothing grades

How we grade your Vintage Fashion here at Vintage Flamingos

  • Mint: Garment is faultless, was worn seldom or not at all, and has not been altered to a second permanence.

  • Excellent: Garment has no obvious faults in appearance, and possibly was worn several times. Fibers may be weakened by time and/or conditions.

  • Good: Garment has minor stains and/or fabric tearing or abrasion which may be noticeable; or, fabric may be weak from time and/or conditions.

  • Fair: Garment has apparent stains and/or fabric wear; these problems are either irreparable or have been repaired, but are not perfect in appearance.

  • Poor: Garment has obvious permanent stains and/or fabric wear and is not repairable in its present state. These garments are sometimes useful for display, costume, or pattern copying.

  • UPCYCLED: Garments that have been skilfully repaired or embellished for improvement.. All repairs have been done to a high standard and are non noticeable on wear, 

We do not stock any vintage clothing that does not meet the above top 3 standards. You will not find anything of Fair to Poor quality on our site.
