It could be called a case of “deja vu all over again” as vintage clothing is the latest rage in fashion.
Everything is groovy with the most popular attire being jeans from the 1960s, with the Levi 502 selling for $100 and a denim jacket for $90 on eBay.

Riding this wave of nostalgia is the Toronto Vintage Clothing Sale at the Queen Elizabeth Building, Exhibition Place (180 Princes Blvd.), on March 7 and 8.
There’s also the Fashion History Museum (74 Queen St. E.) in Cambridge with a collection that spans from the 1660s with 12,000 items.
