Vintage was not a word that described the clothes i wore
20 years ago.
the word was there but my clothes were called second hand.
the word vintage irks me.
I looked it up
the general explanation is items 20-25 years and up to 90 years old.

So, so far so good.
From that explanation

or the materials that is used to make them
but not because the world vintage is attached to them.
