Some of the definitions of vintage are a time of origin, a group of objects of the same period and a style or fashion of the past. My personal favourite, however, is that it’s characterised by excellence and enduring appeal.
That is, for me, the true essence of vintage.
Styles come and go. We are constantly bombarded with pressure for the latest thing. If it doesn’t have a particular logo blazoned upon it, then forget it!
