The popularity of vintage clothing continues to grow with each passing year with more and more sellers entering the market to satisfy the demand. The increase is accessibility of vintage with more and more businesses opening on the high street, the internet and even eBay seems to have blurred the definition of vintage.
So what is vintage clothing? This is a question that we are asked on a regular basis and to a certain extent this is a very subjective question. However, the general definition is that anything older that 20 years from the present date can referred to as vintage clothing and antique clothing for anything from the 1920’s and earlier.
So how do we define vintage? We have always generally defined vintage as anything pre-1970s, but recognise that this is subjective as each new generation dicover vintage this standard definition has shifted. We recognise this and reflect this in our Marketplace. We want to be as inclusive as possible and welcome all generations of sellers so are happy for the 1980’s and 1990’s to be included but provide filters so searches can be narrowed down to a particular era.
The one exception we do ahere to is listing new or modern items designed in a vintage stye. To maintain the integrity of RETRuly these modern items will be removed.
So does it really matter? yes, if you browse other marketplaces it is very hard to find original vintage as it is competing with thousands of modern reproductions pertaining to be vintage. This will never happen on RETRuly, our team of experts regularly review our content to ensure that the integrity of our site is maintained so will remove any items that do not conform to our listing policy.
