Do you love vintage clothing?
Taking something historic and giving it a brand new lease of life. Not only being able to create a unique look, but having something that is dynamic and stylish whilst being kind to the planet.
Bestdays is a vintage clothing store based in Colchester that was founded by Steve and Jez.
Steve and Jez have been friends for more years than they care to remember. Having met at university, where trying and subsequently failing to become rock stars, they ended up working at Rokit, helping to make it London’s biggest vintage chain. After 10 years of managing these stores across London, they branched out alone. Their Colchester based store in Eld Lane offers a feast of affordable, one-off clothing and accessories from the 60’s to 90’s.
Not only does buying vintage clothing help you to stay sustainable in this world, but it also helps you to stand out in a crowd.
Their Vintage clothing, and feel-good prints aren’t available in the mainstream fast fashion outlets, so buying their products will keep your wardrobe exclusive.
It’s a great way to feel good about how you buy your clothing.
They understand that life can be challenging, and feeling under pressure at work, in education or on social media is becoming a bigger problem all the time. Their store in Colchester, Essex is a place that’s non-judgmental. Where listening to what you say is a priority, and positive encouragement for your dreams is absolutely part of the day.
It’s really important to them that you feel more positive about life when you leave the shop than when you came in.
