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


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!

CARHARTT JACKETS are ready for your Winter Fun!


Here in New York City, it’s definitely CARHARTT weather outside!  Want to spend a chilly night rushing from door to cab to club and back again?  We didn’t think so.  Grab one of these CARHARTT JACKETS and you can stroll down the street, properly warm – yet calm, cool and collected – while everyone else is scurrying about.  These stylish, durable jackets originally came from Detroit, where the company started producing work overalls for railroadmen back in 1899.  Unbelievably, CARHARTT has remained a family-owned company for the last 115 years, as it’s still owned by the descendents of founder Hamilton Carhartt.  METROPOLIS VINTAGE stands as a testament to the lasting quality of the CARHARTT jacket as  we have a good collection here, still waiting to protect you against the winter elements!


As the legend has it, one year at his annual yachting birthday party Ralph Lauren received a teddy bear in his likeness, dressed ears to paw in miniature Ralph Lauren garb. He was so charmed by this gift, instantly smitten, and it looked so much like him that he decided to produce a line of miniature teddy bears for sale to discerning customers looking for a stylish cuddle. These furry Ralph Lauren surrogates soon proved to be incredibly popular with adults and children alike. Who among us was a Polo bear baby?
Demand grew and it was soon clear that this was simply not enough. Lauren knew he had to up the ante and 1991 found RL debuting his latest creation – sweaters proudly emblazoned with his beloved bear, soon to be christened the POLO BEAR.  The public was overjoyed and snatched them up in all forms. The bear was a true style icon and was depicted in all manner of guises, dressed as a doctor, lawyer, fireman, you name it. Everyone loved the bear icon, but possibly the greatest supporters of all time was a legendary Brooklyn street gang named The Lo-Lives – as in “PoLO-LIVES” – who ONLY wore the most rare of Ralph Lauren Polo Bear items they could find. METROPOLIS VINTAGE has just acquired a serious amount of prized POLO RALPH LAUREN items of a variety of styles, some with the Polo Bear, some not, but all have that refined style known and prized by Ralph Lauren aficionados from the yachts to the streets and back again.
