CARHARTT have long been the name for dependable, durable, rugged work wear. When it’s time to keep warm and look cool, there’s no better option. In those cases where one would want something a a bit more lightweight, never fear, we at METROPOLIS have collected a fine selection of CARHARTT SWEATSHIRTS for you. They’ve always been popular on the street, but since Kanye West was spotted walking around in one or two items, they’ve gone straight to the top. Kick off the new year in a Carhartt sweatshirt and you’ll be ready for anything!

Across “the pond” they call them “jumpers”… here they are “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” and are big business…

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.

One unique twist was to turn them inside out so the stitching and white material would show on the outside. Wear one any way you’d like, and find the best selection over at METROPOLIS VINTAGE!

Are you a MARLBORO Man or Woman? Apparently, the mighty macho Marlboro was initially sold as a woman’s cigarette, with an emphasis on it’s smooth, delicate flavor and the tagline “Mild As May“. Soon enough, though, cigarette health studies rolled around. Suddenly, in the 1950’s, MARLBORO flipped, marketing it as the ultimate cowboy cigarette. Naturally, any unhealthy side effects became no match for the modern cowboy or his mustache. Well, we can guarantee there are no harmful side effects to picking up one of our vintage MARLBORO T-SHIRTS at Metropolis Vintage, except for extreme jealousy that is! We’ve got a full pack waiting on the rack, with other classic cig brands such as Kool and Winston mixed in. Come on down!
