Our Wayne

Our buying process

Our director Wayne is also our head buyer, and he spends at least 6 months of the year on buying trips abroad. From America to East Asia, we have several global suppliers who provide us with a mountain of second hand clothing on each visit: it's our Wayne's job to comb through that mountain item by item, cherry picking only the goods of the highest quality, top brands & boldest prints that we know our customers want. 

Wayne can purchase anywhere between 8-15 tonne at a time, with smaller 5 tonne weekly deliveries handpicked buy our team to keep a fresh supply of grade A vintage moving on to our rails. 

In 2019 we built our own on-site laundrette to ensure the vast majority of our items are in ready to wear condition. 

Our Quality

We always strive to offer grade A quality vintage & second hand goods, taking great care to spot any serious flaws or stains before they make it to sale with most items checked over at least twice.


However, we are only human and on odd occasions small flaws may slip through; this is simply due to human error as we would never intentionally supply sub-quality goods. Anything we find which is unreasonably damaged is either donated or sold at a discount rate to reworkers & upcyclers who can put the material and components to better use. 


As part of our grading process we check for marks & stains, and anything which isn't in an acceptable clean condition is sent to our own on-site laundrette. 

Items may even be given pre-treatment for heavy stains followed by an eco-wash to freshen them up. 


We use an Ariel professional detergent which cleans and freshens efficiently at low temperatures.
