Vintage Clothing For Men Women and From Times Past
Vintage Clothing, and the appreciation for the superior quality, fabric, and design that you will find within vintage clothing. This era of clothing is even more popular today with many of us including celebrities too.
This type of clothing is a perfect solution for those wanting something that will make them look different, and make them stand out.
One advantage is you can rest assure that you will probably not see anyone else wearing the same thing as you! Helps you to feel special, and to feel what celebrities feel when wearing these one of a kind pieces. Over time vintage clothing has become more popular again with finding such pieces, finding patterns for them, and reproducing garments from time past.
Some of the wording, and phrasing I had found from Wikipedia when doing an internet research about vintage clothing.
Generally clothing produced before 1920s is referred to as antique. Clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before present day is considered vintage.
Vintage clothing is a generic term for new or second hand garments originating from a previous era.
Retro short for retrospective, or "vintage style" usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era.
Reproduction, or repro clothing is a newly-made copy of an older garment.
Most vintage clothing has been previously worn, and a small percentage of pieces have not. These are often old warehouse stock, and can be more valuable than those that have been worn. Especially if they have their tags. Vintage clothing may be either commercially produced, or handmade by individuals.
Where to find vintage clothing? Thrift Shops, Second Hand Stores, or better yet from your mother's closets, and especially from your Grandmother's closets too. If I knew then what I know now I would have hung unto some of the clothing of my Grandmother's. I can still remember her working in the kitchen, cooking, cleaning, and wearing her aprons. Course, now I wish I still had some of those things from times past.
