Is Vintage Really Vintage?

When we say something is vintage, is it really vintage? When it comes to fashion, you hear the term thrown around a lot, such as "Where's your coat from" "Oh it's vintage", where the other person would then go on to say something like "That's a shame, I wish I could buy it" or "Oh, it's such a lucky find!". According to Oxford dictionary, vintage "denotes to something from the past of high quality, especially something representing the best of its kind" so are those jumpers we find in our mum's wardrobes vintage or do we simply call it old? 

On a side note, wind is not your best friend when taking photos because half the time you'll be fixing your hair or waiting for the breeze to pass. Then again, forgetting sunglasses when it's sunny results in even squintier versions of yourself, looking annoyed and well, squinty. At least with rain you can bring an umbrella or go indoors.
