How do you determine Shade?

  • The numeric values of shade represent the condition of the item in terms of color and fade. An item with a shade value of 10 indicates it has absolutely no fading or change in color. A deadstock item (which is new and unworn) will have a shade of 10. Very few items will have a shade of 5 or lower.

How do you determine Grade?

  • Grade refers to the overall condition of an item, ranging from deadstock to Grade #4. Deadstock items are in new, unworn condition and will most likely have the original store tags attached. A Grade #1 item is in good condition, with no holes, stains, or repairs. Grade #2 means that the item has minor imperfections (i.e. holes or stains, not repairable), but is still very wearable. We have very few items of grades three and four. These items are probably not wearable and are valuable only as collectibles, or for parts.
