Origin, Sizing & Condition
Jeneral Store edits are split into 3 categories: Vintage, Circular and Sustainable.
Vintage pieces are sourced from vintage clothing and antique suppliers. I try to buy from suppliers as local to Manchester as I can, but also like to take up the opportunity of sourcing items whilst on my travels.
Circular pieces are preowned, that have come from a recent era. They are given TLC in the JS studio through reworking and restyling, ready to be put back into circulation.
Sustainable collections are made using deadstock, remnant or vintage fabrics.
You can find out where every product on site originates within each product description.
Due to the nature of vintage clothing and the changes in sizing over the years, vintage sizing isn't always true to modern day labels. Some items may not have their original brand, size or woven labels. I do my best to suggest a possible modern day size for each item but these recommendations are not a guarantee.
XS (size 6-8)
S (size 8-10)
M (size 10-12)
L (size 12-14)
XL (size 14-16)
XXL (size 16-18)
All Vintage and Circular collections are handpicked, and sometimes have minor imperfections due to their pre-owned wear. I avoid stocking anything I feel isn't in very good condition, with very minor flaws if any.
On occasions where there are noteworthy flaws, details, and colour variations mentioned in the product’s description. I believe superficial flaws in vintage garments are what make them unique and special.
Even after thorough inspection, it is possible that an imperfection may be missed. Examples of imperfections that a vintage item may retain, include, but are not limited to: discolouration's, loose threading, etc.
