Cool CAMEL Cigarette Clothes Collection at Metropolis Vintage!

Do you remember the era of CAMEL cash? Attached to each Camel cigarette pack about be a certain amount of $$ with Joe Camel in the center, eventually redeemable for anything from hats, to T-Shirts, to a pool table.    My Uncle was the king of Camel cigarette collecting and had a mountain of it, with which he could have probably bought a Camel Ferrari.  I do rememeber he had a sweet leather bomber jacket.  We haven’t found one of those YET – but we’re still looking.  In the meantime, Metropolis Vintage has plenty of rare CAMEL Cigarette and Joe Camel T-Shirts and items waiting here for you.   Worth checking out and you don’t even have to go back in time and collect all those packs!

The best in GUESS T-Shirts, Sports Shirts, and Pants at Metropolis Vintage!

As far as cool retro ’80s and ’90s shirt styles go, there’s no question that GUESS had a lock on the competition.  The brand was initiated by the famed  Georges Marciano, who came up with the name while sitting outside a McDonald’s in traffic.  There was a billboard asking the consumer to GUESS which fast food giant had the best selling cheeseburger and the rest is history.  Before long GUESS was one of the best selling clothing labels in the world so let that be a lesson that inspiration can be found anywhere!  Vintage GUESS items, however, are getting sparse, so come down to METROPOLIS and have a look through our collection of GUESS T-Shirts, GUESS Sports Shirts. and GUESS Pants!

Vintage DENIM JACKETS from METROPOLIS – Made to outlast their owner!

IMG_1942-Jeans-Museum-Piles-of-sorted-denim-jackets-for-the-inventory
First created by Levi Strauss in 1873 to serve as a rugged protective layer for prospectors and cowboys, the denim jacket has remained durable, dependable, and popular throughout the years. Don’t take our word for it – a Levis historian recently discovered a jacket dating back to the 1880’s in an abandoned Southern California ghost town. They’re simple, effective and cool, and apparently will even outlast their owner by a century or so. While we’ve got nothing going so far back as the 1880’s, METROPOLIS VINTAGE always has a stock of classic denim jackets waiting on the rack. If they’ve worked for Dennis Hopper and The Marlboro Man, they’ll certainly work for you!

Don’t forget to stop by our ETSY store for many other cool items!
