THE MANY COLORS OF COOGI

Australia – the land of kangaroos, boomerangs, deadly creatures, classic slang, strong beer and good rocknroll.  Furthermore, the land down under has also given us the nubby, colorful, artfully sewn COOGI SWEATER.  Founded way back in 1969, the label was initially called CUGGI.  The description “Cosby Sweater” has been bandied about for years but the COOGI sweaters were actually deemed too colorfully hardcore for The Cosby Show and didn’t make the cut.  Since we know you’re an extreme sweater lover, our COOGI section has just been restocked and is actively clashing with the rest of the store.  Come on down and help us out!

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!
