Apple Of My Eye

$13 $16

 THE STORY

Did you know that the literal meaning of apple of my eye comes from the fact that back then there was no word to describe the pupil of the eye? Hence, they thought that the pupil was a solid round object which they referred to as an apple, as it was the most common solid round object at the time. 

The earliest records of this phrase were In Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's dream: “Flower of this purple dye, / Hit with Cupid’s archery, / Sink in apple of his eye”. (source: Bloomsbury) 

Also, don't get us started on that 2011 Taiwanese film of the same name 😭

Condition Assessment & Pricing

We understand that secondhand clothing may come with some wear and tear. To ensure transparency, we have meticulously assessed each piece of clothing for these 7 signs:

  1. Fading
  2. Stretch
  3. Stains
  4. Snagged threads
  5. Holes
  6. Lint balls
  7. Wonky zip

The clothing will then be priced according to the condition that it is in, along with other factors such as its brand.

What is "Stated Size"?

Good question! The second-hand clothing listed on The Kint Story all come from different brands, that all have their own sizing charts. So for those pieces of clothing that have a sizing label attached, that will be the "Stated Size". 

However, there are many pieces of clothing that do not come with a sizing label attached. Hence we have measured each one of them and recorded them under "Measurements". 

If you're not sure about your measurements, you may refer to this chart below to roughly gauge. We do STRONGLY suggest you take your own specific body measurements for greater accuracy. 

Lastly, should you require any extra measurements please email us at hello@thekintstory.com for assistance.
