We love a bit of vintage and second hand fashion in Manchester, it’s why we dress so well! Now, the UK’s most loved, leading vintage and reworked clothing retailer, Vintage Threads, has expanded to the Trafford Centre and Manchester Exchange Selfridges stores.
After being the best performing brand in Selfridges London designer studio, Vintage Threads is set to have the same impact on Manchester, with the aim to continue to drive real change in the fashion industry. Manchester is the first city the vintage store has expanded to and the team says it is crucial to the start of their nationwide expansion due to the city being a hub for fashion.
Freddie Rose, Co-Founder and Owner of Vintage Threads said: “Being in London Selfridges is already a dream come true and for us to be able to expand to both Manchester Selfridges store is so exciting.
“We truly believe that there are already enough clothes in the world to keep us looking great and feeling comfortable with many generations to come. Vintage Threads is all about using what we have already in the world and giving it a second life.”
Vintage Threads provides a wide range of handpicked clothing, offering highly curated vintage designer, sports, and streetwear to ensure that any fashion-lover can fit out their whole wardrobe with pre-loved items, that tailor to all manners of style and preferences.
From vintage Nike jumpers and Carhartt jackets, to Prada sunglasses and Fendi jeans, everyone is able to find their fit. Every piece is authenticated, washed, steamed, and graded before reaching the stores, to provide the best experience and purchase.
In 2019, Vintage Threads went on to found the VT Rework brand to help drive the business further towards its zero-waste mission, using damaged or unloved original vintage materials. VT Rework has rapidly become a huge hit with customers around the world including Ariana Grande, Emma Chamberlain and ASAP Nast – and if it’s good enough for them…
To date, Vintage Threads has recycled up to 10,000 items of clothing, reducing not only pieces that would go to landfill, but also millions of litres of water that it takes to produce a single cotton t-shirt.
Vintage Threads stocks a wide range of vintage styles and sizes from 80s designer pieces to Y2K styles and 00s tech-wear. The collections in the new stores feature curated pieces from 80s, 90s and early 00s designer, sports, and streetwear – perfect for when you need to find your next festival piece or one-off birthday outfit.
