METROPOLIS VINTAGE on INLIFE IN THE BIG APPLE with CHRIS BROW

INLIFE

CHRIS BROW of the international INLIFE show on LYONESS TV takes his viewers on a fun and informative tour of New York City – from Williamsburg, past the Museum Of Modern Art to Queens, and finally, a stop at METROPOLIS to talk vintage with our shop manager Drew Redmond. Check it out here! We appear at approximately 4:33, but the whole episode is great:

Chris Brow takes us along on his rather special New York city walk. He shows us what the “Big Apple” has to offer over and above classic points of interest in terms of culture, fashion and entertainment. So Chris takes us on a stroll through the districts of Brooklyn, Queens and of course Manhattan. Expect a few surprise discoveries!

Thanks to CHRIS and LYONESS TV, you’re welcome back anytime!

DENIM JACKETS – Made to outlast their owner!

IMG_1942-Jeans-Museum-Piles-of-sorted-denim-jackets-for-the-inventory
First created by Levi Strass 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!

151 YEARS of FRYE BOOTS

FRYE
Want a real piece of history? The FRYE Company claims to be the oldest, longest running shoe company in America. Started by Mr. John A. Frye back in 1863, it was founded in Marlborough, Massachusetts and stayed in the Frye family until 1945. FRYE has gained their reputation of quality for good reason – their boots are built to last almost as long as the company they were named for. Over the years, Frye has produced a variety of styles including engineer, cowboy boots, hiking boots, and many others that were very popular with kids back in the 1960′s. METROPOLIS VINTAGE has a wide selection of all types and our most current FRYE selection at any time can be found right HERE on our ETSY store. If you live in New York City or plan to be passing through, feel free to come by and request to try on any pair during business hours. We’ll be happy to assist you in finding a boot that will last.

THE BACHELOR, THE ROCKER and THE VELVET JACKET

velvet jackets

Ah yes, the velvet jacket – destined to go down in history as one of the most tactile textiles known to man. Any self-respecting bachelor of the 1970′s owned one in every shade, in hopes that some nubile bachelorette would find the fine fabric irresistible to the touch. Paired with a scarf, a velvet jacket forms the cornerstone of the classic shaggy-haired-rock-dandy look. Mick Jagger himself will tell you that they go quite well with a bottle of red wine – in which case you may opt for a darker burgundy shade in case of spillage. The popularity of this garment continues throughout the ages, so naturally we’ve got some in stock for you here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE. Come on down and feel one for yourself!
