In my humble opinion, most often superior beauty and quality.
Yours truly grew up in a parish of antique vestments. Vestments which had been thrown out or given away by other parishes. That parish has to this day the best vestment collection in the diocese, St. Agnes church in St. Paul, Minn. You find foreign missions commonly have some of the best vestments as well - treasures given away by parishes to the diocesan Propaganda Fide offices.
