OVERALLS: VERY FAR FROM THE FARM!

VINTAGE OVERALLS BUY

 Overalls have come a long way from the cliche image of the farmer and the oil-stained on-duty mechanic!  Though versions were used as early as 1792, overalls as we popularly know them (the “bib-and-brace” style) came into effect around 1891.  After decades of hard work,  the durable denim overall came into fashion, evolving from cornfed to cool.   What once was protective gear for WWI-era mothers working in factories became a staple for the earth mother of the 1960’s and beyond.  Even the ’90s found overalls being repopularized by Hip Hop artists such as Tupac and Kris Kross.  Suddenly, they’re back.  Once again, we here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE have anticipated the trend and have a wide selection of overalls for you, from the traditional dark denim variety, to the popular “Shortalls” or “Skirtalls” which have been cut into shorts or modified to become a dress.  Perfect for summer wear in the country OR the city!

DENIM JACKETS – Made to outlast their owner!

IMG_1942-Jeans-Museum-Piles-of-sorted-denim-jackets-for-the-inventory
First created by Levi Strass in 1873 to serve as a rugged protective layer for prospectors and cowboys, the denim jacket has remained durable, dependable, and popular throughout the years. Don’t take our word for it – a Levis historian recently discovered a jacket dating back to the 1880’s in an abandoned Southern California ghost town. They’re simple, effective and cool, and apparently will even outlast their owner by a century or so. While we’ve got nothing going so far back as the 1880’s, METROPOLIS VINTAGE always has a stock of classic denim jackets waiting on the rack. If they’ve worked for Dennis Hopper and The Marlboro Man, they’ll certainly work for you!
