Feel good in one of our vintage ’90s SILK SHIRTS!

If you want the ultimate in comfort AND style, come down to Metropolis Vintage and try on one of our luxurious early 1990’s silk shirts. If it looks like our model here is enjoying himself, you have no idea. We had to pry the poor man out of that silk, and then finally promise him we’d find more in his size.  As it stands, there’s a fine crop of colorful, soft silk shirts waiting here for you that don’t quite fit him.  They were a staple of early ’90s life, and now you can revive, relive and create new memories in one.  Nice and lightweight for the summer months!

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.

We’ve got PLAID! Vintage Shirts, Coats, PENDLETONS, FILSONS and more . . .

There’s an abundance of PLAID here at Metropolis Vintage these days . . . We have  vintage plaid “Grunge” style shirts as well as heavy wool PENDLETON, FILSON, WOODRICH and JOHNSON coats and jackets.  The heavy wool jackets are a perfect warm and stylish barrier against the winter chill, but did you know that THE BEACH BOYS originally called themselves The Pendletones in honor of their favorite brand?  Their legacy has been just as durable as their sturdy jackets, coats and shirts – lasting throughout the century.  Mike Watt, bass player for THE STOOGES, MINUTEMEN, and lifetime plaid flannel expert advises: ”Pendeltons are the prize. Avoid anything made in Sri Lanka.”

“At Pendleton Woolen Mills, Clarence Morton Bishop envisioned a different kind of fabric for a man’s wool shirt. Pendleton’s sophisticated weaving capabilities were producing vibrant Indian trade blankets. Why not bring that same weaving and color know-how to flannel shirting?  After much weaving experimentation and hard work, Pendleton’s innovative Umatilla shirting fabric rolled off the loom. The positive response was immediate. After World War II, the concept of sportswear emerged in American society.  While hunting, fishing, or pursuing his hobbies, Dad very often wore a Pendleton shirt.  Throughout the 20th century, clothing trends have emerged from workwear and traveled into the fashion mainstream. Casual and colorful, leisurewear symbolized the end of privation and the return of the good life.”

BRAVE THE SUN GOD WITH OUR COLORFUL AZTEC PRINT SHIRTS!

Aztec Shirts are now here!  This ancient tribal print was very popular in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries before making a brief fashion resurgence in popularity during the  90’s and finally landing at Metropolis Vintage in 2013 A.D.  Their fun, eye-catching, geometric style definitely gets you noticed and looks stunning with the summer sun reflecting off these colorful  patterns.   Not just for Aztecs anymore!
