Who are we?

Our goal with basivé is to take you on a vintage journey and offer our customers a curated collection of authentic vintage clothing and pieces. That means that our items are handpicked and thoroughly inspected. Every single item has been carefully cleaned, steamed and perfected before being packed for shipment to you. Not only to guarantee delivering quality products but to also improve your satisfaction when shopping for vintage. But always keep in mind that these aren't new items but pre-owned or they have been hiding in storage for a long time.

We believe that shopping for vintage items should be made a simple and easy experience. When buying vintage from other sources it takes a lot of time and they never seem to have the exact item you are looking for. 

What is vintage?

A vintage garment is an article of clothing or accessory that’s 20 years of age or older. Technically anything made in '2000 or prior is considered vintage.

Is vintage clothing used?

Yes, for the most part but not always. While most vintage clothing was possessed from previous owners and therefore technically used/secondhand, there is a small market of what’s called “deadstock vintage", which are pieces that have never been worn. Deadstock vintage is best identified with its original tags still attached to the garment itself. We at basivé sell second hand and deadstock vintage.

How do I know my vintage size?

Actually — you don’t. The reason you can’t have a concrete vintage size is that the sizing system has changed numerous times, so there is no one “set” size to use as reference when shopping vintage.

The best rule of thumb is to know your body’s measurements. For example, knowing your shoulder and bust size help determine whether a vintage shirt will fit, especially when shopping for them online. All the items on the website are provided with actual measurements. So the best way of finding the best vintage clothing for you is to compare it to your own clothing. For a more detailed description on how to get the perfect size we advice you to look at our sizing guide.

What kind of condition are the items in?

A lot of the clothing we stock is vintage so a certain level of wear is to be expected. While this is part of the charm, we will never stock anything thats unwearable. Any holes, stains or glaring defects will always be listed on each product's page along with detailed photos.


What payment methods do we accept?

We accept the following secure methods of payments for both domestic and international customers: MasterCard, Visa and iDeal. We only take payment once your order has been shipped. We also accept payment by PayPal or Apple pay. If you decide to use either of these two methods, you’ll be taken to either the PayPal or Apple Pay website, where you’ll be prompted to log in and process your payment. You’ll then be directed back to our merchant website once your transaction is complete. For payment options that allow you to pay after receiving your items we accept Klarna and AfterPay.

Note that additional exchange fees may apply if your currency is other then the € EURO.

Will there be international custom charges?

If the customer's outside the European Union then the country or region may charge fees (e.g. import tariff, value-added tax, customs handling fees, etc.), the customer will have to bear the charge(s). The actual value of the parcel will be reported on the customs documents, and the fees will be collected by the Post Office or courier service provider of the customer's country or region. In case the delivery of an order is delayed due to customs, we bear no responsibility. Ordering from inside the European Union will have no extra costs involved.

Purchases sent outside of Europe may be assessed local taxes, duties, etc. upon arrival. The shipping firm that delivers the package may impose additional brokerage fees or other surcharges as part of the customs and tax process. Recipients are responsible for payment of all fees, taxes, and duties related to shipment(s) to destinations outside of Europe.

 If a shipment is lost, abandoned, or you refuse a shipment due to the local taxes or duties not being paid, basivé will not issue you a refund for your order.

Where is my refund?

Once we receive your return, we’ll notify you by email. If the refund is approved, then it will be processed and a credit will automatically be applied to customer's original payment method shortly after. We aim to process refunds within three days of an item being returned to us. Please note, however, that your bank may take several days to process the payment back into your account. With that said, please allow up to ten working days after posting the item back to us before getting in touch about your refund. We’ll contact you by email to let you know when your refund has been processed.
