Return of the Long Sleeved Rock Shirts

A staple of the 1990’s, the long sleeved rock shirt adorned many a grunge kid and any skateboarder worth his salt.  Lately, this tradition seems to have been taken over by the metal crowd, but we at Metropolis Vintage have been collecting these for some time now and think the public is ready for them once again!  We’ve unearthed a huge batch which we’ve just put out on the racks so you can replace the short sleeve version with the longer, winterized model.

Check out our online selection of a variety of vintage T-Shirts by clicking here.  We ship anywhere!

METROPOLIS VINTAGE in ROLLING STONE!

Visitors to our shop in the East Village might recognize a familiar face in this video – that would be the one and only KID KING LOVE, who greets you from behind the counter at METROPOLIS when he’s not out changing the world with music.  ROLLING STONE recently caught up with he and his crew to discuss the retro life.  One stop was METROPOLIS itself, as you can see in the video.  Congrats, KID and TRIBENYC, remember us when you’ve hit the big time!
