Pro Tip #1: Dont get hung up on original sizing tags when you’re shopping vintage. 99% of them are wonky as hell and entirely inaccurate to modern sizing. If it looks like it’ll fit, take a minute try it on. And if you love it but the fit is a *little off*, come out and show us —-> we can recommend a fantastic local tailor to take care of you
Pro Tip #2: Our team measures the waist of all of the denim, skirts, slacks etc before they go out. Check OUR tag for the true and accurate measurements of any bottoms in the shop. Note the rise (basically the length of the zipper) on pants and shorts - a 30” waist measurement on a mid rise will not sit the same as a 30” waist measurement on a high rise. And just like with modern denim, different brands fit differently and have varying percentages of cotton/elastane. We recommend bringing a few pairs into the fitting room to see which brand suits your body type the best. Not sure your measurements? We can help with that too!
Pro Tip #3: The clothes don’t care the gender of who wears them. The clothes don’t care the gender of who wears them. The clothes don’t care the gender of who wears them. I can’t say this enough. You are guaranteed to find the perfect look for you by shopping ALL sections of our store. We have a wide range of cuts, sizes and styles throughout - so don’t limit your shopping experience (or style!) by just browsing one area of our store. We separate to curate, not to segregate
Pro Tip #4: Don’t limit yourself to only browsing pieces fit for the current season when you’re in specialty boutiques - ESPECIALLY when you’re shopping vintage. You’ll likely score a much better price on the off-season item (they’re often on sale!) and you won’t keep yourself up at night wishing you got that one-of-a-kind gem when you had the chance. Its always gonna get cold and its always gonna get hot again ;)
