Yes, our bundles are put together at random based on the category of your choice. Since we do not allow any handpicking, we are able to keep all the best pieces in our mixes for you!
The simple answer to that is: “its mostly donated clothing.” Most of it originally comes from the larger donation companies like Goodwill and Salvation Army while a smaller percentage comes from private donation companies and charities. These donation companies usually keep a small percentage of the clothing they receive to sell retail in their own thrift stores while selling off the vast majority of it to rag dealers who then resell the mixed used clothing by the container to different countries all over the world. Its also worth noting that American used clothing is a highly coveted world commodity due to many factors such as the popular brands, style, quality and the sheer quantity available.
It would be nearly impossible to wholesale purely 80s/90s vintage clothing. Our company is called Thrift Vintage "Fashion" for a specific reason, we specialize in offering a wide variety of secondhand clothing geared towards a “vintage fashionable look”. We do not publish or give the impression that every garment will be 15 years or older unless the category specifies “vintage” in the title, as in our “vintage graphic t-shirts” and “vintage graphic sweatshirt” categories.
The amount of authentic vintage product in each mix varies by the category. When ordering wholesale, please visit each category's product page for a full description and example pictures of what to expect in the mix. While most categories contain anywhere from 40-80% vintage, the Rock and Harley tees include very few if any vintage pieces from the 80s/90s, most will be repros or from the 2000s and later. Our cartoon and TV/Movie mixes also contain very few vintage pieces and most will be modern repros. Please contact us with any questions regarding what to expect in a mix.
All of our mixes contain secondhand clothing in grade A condition (no major holes or stains) with up to 15% grade B (minor stains, rips or tears). We caution all buyers that this is used clothing and we do not manufacturer the product. Many items are 20-30 years old making it nearly impossible to offer a perfect product free of any blemishes. With that being said, we do pride ourselves on sending out consistent quality mixes for all orders big and small.
Just like our grade quality, we take great pride in the selection of our clothing. We employ highly trained clothing graders in our warehouse who pull items from each category sticking to a specific formula. In order to maintain the highest integrity in our mixes, we do not allow any handpicking or purchasing of “premium” items from any categories. This is how we have operated since day one and will continue to work this way in fairness to all customers big and small.
We ship domestically with UPS and internationally with Fedex. All orders take 2-5 business days to arrive anywhere in the world. If you want to know more about our shipping process, please see the button below!
Since we do not allow any handpicking in our operation, we are able to offer 100% original bundles to all of our customers. Think of it like being first in the thrift store right after they restock the racks, all the best pieces are included in the orders! Each bundle follows a specific ratio of original vintage and retro style clothing which vary based on the category. We pride ourselves on offering some of the best vintage mixes in the industry and this is largely due to us never allowing any handpicking what so ever, keeping all the creme for your orders!
Our sizing is based on the original tag size for each piece. By the nature of vintage, some sizing will fit different than modern sizing, the older a piece is the more likely the sizing will be bit smaller. Most items are originally sized for males (otherwise specified), but are worn as unisex today. Generally, you should choose the size that you normally wear. We recommend if you run very small to a size then you should size down.
After 30 years of supplying the world's leading vintage retailers with wholesale clothing, we have decided to create an online platform for virtual thrifting!
With our ability to keep costs down for the consumer, we aim to fuse the thrill of thrifting with the convenience of online shopping, all while supporting sustainable fashion!
