is the best choice to find out more information about your retro brand.
Who knows, maybe it could be one of those vintage fairy tales when you buy a relatively cheap retro garment, and then you find out that it is a valuable collectible item that may cost thousands.
3. Don't be mislead if you buy an expensive vintage garment. Some labels were valuable and expensive during one period of time but lost their value during another.
Always check Vintage Brands and Labels resources if you are not sure about your purchase and the deal looks suspicious.
4. Rely on your own preferences.
Always choose your vintage clothing depending on your own taste and trust your own judgment. Don't become one of those labels' snobs, don't limit yourself by the brands names. Choose the best clothing, not the best label.
You don't need tons of labeled clothes buried in your wardrobe never worn.
And even if you buy your retro designer's labeled garment with a purpose to sell it on e-bay, don't forget a label alone won't turn your garment into the best selling thing. First ask yourself: would you buy this item for yourself, and if the answer is Yes!, it will be a good investment!
