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!

Check out the video below, and read the entire article HERE!

It’s Time For SWEATSHIRTS Of The 1990’s!

’90s SWEATSHIRTS are back with a vengeance! Stripes and bold neon colors were the order of the day and we’ve got them all in stock right now.  To some, the ’90s feel like just yesterday but in fact, it WAS 20 years ago and items from that era are certifiably vintage at this point – some cool, some ugly, some a bit of both!  Nevertheless, whether you’re indulging in some nostalgia from your teenage years or want to grab a piece of a bygone era, you can find your perfect ’90s item at METROPOLIS VINTAGE today!

Check out our FRINGED JACKETS for MEN!

Mad-men-stan-leather-fringe

We’ve noticed one item making an unexpected comeback with the clientele in our store – MEN’S FRINGED JACKETS!  Dennis Hopper and John Voight both helped to popularize this look in films like Midnight Cowboy and Easy Rider, and you may have caught Stan from Mad Men rocking a sweet suede version this season.  Though it looks super cool, fringe originally served a purpose – letting rain drip off and getting the jacket to dry much faster.  You may not have any use for that if you thought ahead to bring an umbrella, but all that fringe will surely look cool swinging back and forth while you’re running from the ladies!

Stay as dry as British Royalty with one of our BARBOUR JACKETS!

BARBOURJACKETSMETROPOLISVINTAGE

Originally founded back in 1894 as an oil cloth import service, the company J. Barbour & Sons was famously known for their waterproof waxed-cotton jackets.  Due to the infamously soggy British climate, these jackets became a staple of British life and soon spread in popularity across the world.  Today, many similar waxed-cotton jackets are referred to as “Barbour Jackets”, whether made by Barbour or not!  Lady Diana was often seen sporting a Barbour throughout the 1980’s when she could certainly have had anything she wanted to wear.  We have quite a few currently in store, so stop by and pick one up.  If it’s good enough to keep British Royalty dry, it’s probably good enough for you, too!
