Oliver Harkness, the owner of The Quality Mending Company, has over 20 years of experience in dealing in vintage clothing, and sources rare, unique American and European pieces for the store. In 2010, as it became clear that select in-demand items were getting more difficult o track down, Oliver introduced his own label The Quality Mending Company, a line of mainly locally made clothing and accessories that takes its inspiration from vintage but possesses an of-the-moment sensibility. These new items fit in nicely alongside the carefully curated vintage pieces that continue to be an essential element of the store. It’s always nice to see when a brand is born out of a passion instead of a moneymaker. When you are in NY City, visit this authentic shop!
