Research shows that buying pre-owned designer Leather rather than buying new, SAVES over 8kg of carbon dioxide emissions and 22ℓ of water. Buying a pair of pre-owned designer shoes instead of a new pair saves 3kg of carbon dioxide emissions. It also spares over 7ℓ of water.
 
For a good quality secondhand leather jacket from a LONDON vintage shop, expect to spend between £60 and £80 on an authentic style. (R 1200 – R1 600) 
 
For a high-end label from a designer resale site like Vestiaire Collective, that price could rise to between £200 and £2,000 (R 4 000 – R 40 000) – depending on the brand you fall for. Bear in mind that a leather jacket is an investment purchase that you should be able to wear for years, so a good *one is worth a splurge.

DESIGNER VINTAGE CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES

As part of E-TRON ELECTRIC’S carbon neutrality commitment, we have partnered with vintage clothing supplier, Thrift & Co to launch the Re-TRON range of pre-worn designer garments.

Understanding as we do that water is a precious commodity and cheap Third World labor no longer justifiable or conscionable, we wanted to offer our customers Designer Vintage Gear (D.V.G) handpicked to complement our retro-styled, modern, high-performance electric Urban Café Racers.

Thrift & Co specialists in sourcing quality designer garments and every item we have on offer from their collection has been hand selected, inspected and either expertly restored or creatively re-purposed. The designer label jackets and jeans are sourced from Europe and are chosen based on the labels’ quality, durability and premium condition.

The designer bags, backpacks and accessories are made from re-purposed garments – stylishly re-designed to give the vintage items a fresh look whilst providing customers with excellent value for money.

Every top label – from Armani to Zegna – is Repurposed, Restyled, Recycled and Reduced so we are now able to match the bespoke accessory pack you’ve chosen for your E-TRON ELECTRIC MOTO-BIKE with an equally individual one-off outfit. Now you can be both environmentally aware and financially savvy and look oh so good doing it!
