How can I be sure a garment will fit?
For all garments I list the size the tag reads if possible, as well as an estimated modern day size. The best way to be sure the garment will fit, however, would be to look at the measurements I provide. All measurements are taken flat, which means the measurements are taken when a garment is laid flat down on a surface and measured from edge to edge. Generally these measurements doubled are the full measurements. Example : A 14" flat waist measurement would fit a 28" waist.
If you are wondering if any garment might fit you, take measurements of a similar item of your own and compare them. And please feel free to ask for any more specific measurements.
What do the item condition descriptions mean?
Excellent condition - Normal signs of wear expected for item's age, but nothing easily visible.
Great condition - Shows normal signs of wear expected for age with some minor visible problems, but none which will detract from wear.
Good condition - Has a few more signs of wear, but structurally intact and wearable.
Fair condition - Vintage that is wearable but has quite a few visible problems, being unique/rare enough that it is worth preserving.
Please remember when purchasing vintage clothing and accessories from OldSchoolSwank you are purchasing something that is pre-loved and pre-worn, and like almost all vintage will show some signs of wear unless it is deadstock or virgin vintage (meaning never worn). Please be sure to read the description thoroughly and to view all the provided photos. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail us!

Can I return an item?
I accept refunds up to three days after you receive the order if you are unhappy with the item, but ask that the buyer pay the shipping both to and from (unless a mistake has been made on my end of course). After three days I cannot accept a return. I will refund you upon receipt of the item. Please be careful to check the measurements on an item before purchasing to be sure it will fit.
What types of payments do you accept?
I accept PayPal payments and credit and debit card payments through direct checkout. The checkout process is easy and reliable. Please make sure your address is correct before you finish your payment. No other payment forms are accepted at this time, apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
When will my item ship?
I ship within two business days of when the order is placed, and will send you a tracking number so you know when it will arrive! If you need an item sooner, please let me know and I can usually accommodate those requests.
Domestic orders : I most commonly ship USPS Priority, which has a 2-3 day shipping time average and $50 insurance included.
International orders : I most commonly ship USPS First Class International.
If I order multiple items, can I get a discount?
I do give discounts for bulk orders over three items, so please contact me before purchasing!
Can you mark my item as a "gift" on the customs form, so I can avoid paying my countries customs fees?
OldSchoolSwank is not responsible for your customs duties, taxes, or fees. Please know your customs charges and fees before purchase. This is the customers responsibility and I do not collect or control these fees. If you are unaware of what these fees might be please contact your local postal service and ask what you can expect to pay before you purchase.
I also cannot mark your item as gift, as it is illegal to do so. Sorry for any inconveniences!
Can we collaborate for my blog / website / publication?
