Authenticity & Condition

At the Vintage New Yorker we have a strict two round authentication process, through both in house + outsourced luxury authenticator experts.  We 100% guarantee authenticity on each item we sell.   


We are committed to providing the best customer service for any product concerns, as we understand shopping pre-owned luxury products online can be challenging and intimidating at times. 


To help you on your shopping journey, we utilize the condition guide outlined below.  Each product is given one of our outlined ratings.  Additionally, any and all observations of use, flaws, note-able mentions, etc., are also bulleted under the condition of each listing.  

Please feel free to contact us with product inquiries as well.
