CONDITION :: All garments are carefully-selected vintage finds with custom fabric modifications. Because most vintage pieces have had a previous life, almost all will show some signs of wear.  I believe this history infuses character and specificity into each piece, but I take care to select garments in good condition, mending seams, removing shoulder pads, and replacing buttons as needed.  Any anomalies in condition will be noted in the item description.

CARE :: All garments have been cleaned.  To care for your purchase, I generally recommend hand washing separately in cold water with a mild liquid detergent. Hang dry in the shade.  Iron back patch from the inside on medium-low heat if needed.

SHIPPING :: All products are shipped within 4 business days.  All packages arrive via USPS Priority Shipping, which includes tracking and should arrive at any USA location within 3 days.  If you need a quicker delivery, please let me know and we will find the best option. Any international customers should contact me for a custom shipping price. 

RETURNS :: If you wish to return an item, please contact within a week of delivery.  Any returns must be received by me no more than three weeks from its initial delivery.  Returns are only eligible for EXCHANGE or STORE CREDIT.  All returned items must be in original condition, unworn and unwashed. Customer is responsible for all shipping costs.

CUSTOM :: If you aren't finding a garment just right for you, I can customize a jacket or other piece of clothing that you send.  I am happy to talk with you about your preferences for placement and color, but I will use my creative prerogative to make a piece customized to the garment provide.  My standard custom fee is $115 but if you are interested in something more elaborate, let's talk!  The customer is responsible for shipping costs both directions.

Because vintage sizing often varies from modern standards, I recommend taking your measurements and comparing to the numbers provided on the item that interests you.  If you don't have a flexible tape measure, you can use a piece of string and then compare it to a yard stick or rigid tape measure.

CHEST / BUST :: Measure around the fullest part of your chest.  

WAIST :: Measure around the slimmest part of your waist.

ARM :: Measure from your armpit to your wrist

SHOULDERS :: Measure across your back, from shoulder tip to shoulder tip.  You may need a friend to help with this one!
