Do you think the quality of certain luxury staples has decreased? I haven’t started my collection yet and this is one of the things that makes me hesitant. Should I go the vintage route?

Agree with McKinsey, it’s illegal to sell counterfeit goods so you’re technically probably covered no matter what, if they find the item isn’t authentic

do you really think that a vintage, worn garment will last longer than something new? i don’t.

however, you might try targeting designers that are known less for branding and more for workmanship, like dries van noten or bottega veneta.

Certain brands prioritize quality more than others. However, I think for the most part, newer goods will always last you longer than vintage ones. I don’t really love vintage things because the pieces you invest in today will be vintage down the road (if well maintained), so why start with vintage now?

I shop quite a bit in Europe as well, which is still relatively small savings compared to pre-owned (with few exceptions).
