How to Identify a Vintage Leather?
Vintage leather has a few standout, unique characteristics that help identify it. These are:
- A few imperfections
If the leather items look new or perfect, it’s probably not a vintage leather fashion piece. Leather looks better with age. It develops a patina, which adds to the overall look. So if you see a few scratches and marks, it’s likely a retro vintage clothing item.
Some vintage leather pieces are dyed with various colors to create highlights and add texture. An example is ‘distressed’ leather, which is an aniline-dyed product that adds a worn-out look to the piece.
Every vintage-inspired wardrobe needs a retro band T-shirt.
These are not limited to actual music bands from the yesteryears. Vintage band T-shirts can also be sports teams and television show shirts.
Even though many high-street shops sell mass-produced replicas of band T-shirts, the vintage band T-shirt niche has always been a big business.What is a Vintage Band T-Shirt?
