Vintage Condition

Having typically enjoyed a previous owner and possibly years of storage, vintage clothes will naturally bear some evidence of their age and history

Barefoot Vintage excellence rests upon item quality and so has never knowingly sold an item failing to meet that strict criteria

All flaws are detailed within the ‘noteworthy’ section of the item description (and photos where applicable)

Condition Guide

All items display a condition rating based on Vintage Fashion Guild guidelines for purchaser peace of mind (see below)

Please familiarize yourself with the terms in the following tables so you can make an informed decision before making a purchase

Condition Rating

New-old / dead stock Unsold and back-stock merchandise from mid-century retailers with attached original tags
Mint Immaculate | may have been worn but bears no evidence
Excellent Excellent vintage condition | close to flawless with very few imperfections | has been worn but well maintained
Very good Very good vintage condition | light evidence of wear | wearable and flaws do not prevent use
Fair Imperfect in appearance | likely repairable with more financial investment than item is worth | remains wearable with care
Study Damaged beyond repair but suitable for study or costume use
