The price and cachet of vintage, the quality and service of new
When you think about it...
" Was this new garment really worth producing? "
That’s the question I ask myself every day through my JamaisVulgaire website, where I introduce you to brands that bring real added value to the men’s fashion market.
I might as well tell you that I also see a lot of brands that offer a bland product with no real differentiation from what’s already out there, that are simply intermediaries between you and a workshop, but whose added and creative value does not justify their margins at all.
The same is true of accessories, especially ties.
At the same time, I’m very interested in vintage (the real thing, not the second-hand stuff on Vinted). I asked myself the same question the other way around:
A perfect fit for your every day life
" Does this practically new garment or accessory really deserve to end its days at the bottom of a dusty bin? "
Because let’s not kid ourselves: even if vintage has been making a comeback in recent years, certain pieces, such as ties, are only marginally affected.
Yet there are plenty of practically new ties on the market from the 70s and 90s, obviously 100% silk, and made (often by hand) in Italy, Japan or South Korea.
And that you’ll never see on Vinted.
The problem with vintage is:
– you have to rummage through dusty thrift shops
– or buy online with blurred visuals and no real guarantee
– products often in poor condition
– with questionable hygiene (second-hand is the 4th biggest source of bedbug infestation, think about it)
– and often with poor service and non-existent packaging.
In short, the vintage experience wasn't appealing (but that was before).
On this online boutique, I have unearthed for you the most beautiful vintage ties I’ve found in recent years, in excellent condition.
These ties deserved to be presented to you in their best light, and with the best possible service, just like when you buy new.
So it’s my pleasure to introduce you to our vintage online boutique, the first to offer both:
– shipping costs
– payment in instalments
– a sharp selection
– parts treated with freezing and dry steam to kill all forms of bacteria and bedbugs
– and brief styling tips for each motif
I hope you like it!
Thanks to the JamaisVulgaire team, the shipment was fast, well packaged and the ties folded with care! I recommend ordering from home to anyone who likes to wear beautiful ties. Romain
