History – What is vintage?
There are a lot of different opinions about this, people use the word vintage to refer to anything from 2nd hand thrift-shop clothes to retro-inspired fashions, but what does it really mean? Any item of clothing over 100 years old is Antique (so pre 1920s) and anything 20 years or less counts as Modern, so Vintage is basically everything in between: from the 1920s through to the early 1990s. Vintage is also used to refer to retro-style clothes and fashions but this is really repro (reproduction) or retro.
