METROPOLIS Christmas Window by JAMES & KARLA MURRAY

Metropolis Vintage is honored to have our Christmas window captured by James & Karla Murray for their collection of the best East Village storefront windows this year!  The Murrays have made their name photographing the changing face of NYC over the past few decades.  Check out their photo books for some really cool, old world signage and remnants of old New York!

Here are some of our favorite Christmas window displays around Greenwich Village and the East Village, NYC this year. These are all from small independent businesses!  #shopsmall  We wish everyone a very happy holiday and a joyous New Year!

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

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.

THE RISE and RISE of HIGH WAISTED JEANS at METROPOLIS VINTAGE

HIGH WAISTED JEANS

You may call them “Mom Jeans”, but they’re one of our most popular items for girls of all ages!  Originating in the 1940’s as a way to keep the modern woman looking “modest” in a pair of jeans, the High Waisted Jean Craze really hit it’s peak in the 1980’s.  Nowadays, they’re back in action with a bit more versatility –  a reaction to the skintight low-risers of recent yore.  You might not have noticed that waistline creeping up on you, but these High Waisted Jeans are very flattering indeed, as evidenced by these shots of our favorite model, Ophelia. These pairs of High Waisted Jeans and many more are waiting for you at METROPOLIS VINTAGE.  Why not stop by and try some on?
