The RETURN of POLO!

POLO fans – you may have noticed a distinct lack of Ralph Lauren around the shops these days.  We, Metropolis Vintage, are here to tell you that the great POLO drought of 2017 is over! Come browse our selection of perfectly curated items before your fellow POLO enthusiasts descend on our collection like wolves.  We’ve seen it happen time and time again – Polo Maniacs racing into the store as we open, coming away with our best, rarest finds.  For our international and non local fans out there, we’re revitalizing and refreshing our online POLO selection so you don’t miss out! Some super special items are included as well!
