Clothing (also called clothes and attire) is fiber and textile
material worn on the body. The word vintage was first used in the early 15th
century. It was taken from the Old French vendage, meaning wine harvest. This word
was taken from the Latin vinum (wine) and demere (to remove). However, the
term is not only regarding wine. Vintage clothing is a generic term for garments
originating from a previous era. The phrase is also used in connection with a retail
outlet, e.g. "vintage clothing store."
Generally speaking, clothing which was produced before
the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 20
years before the present day is considered vintage. Retro, short for retrospective,
or "vintage style" usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous
era. Reproduction, or repro, clothing is a newly made copy of an older garment.
Clothing produced more recently is usually called modern or contemporary fashion.
Learn the difference between
vintage fashion and antique clothing.
In the United States, due to changes in clothing sizes, vintage
sizes often are smaller than the corresponding contemporary size. For example, a
garment from the 1970s labeled as Medium (M) might be similar in size to a 2010s
Extra Small (XS).
Fashion design, throughout history has turned to previous
eras for inspiration as well as looking to the present and future.
