STORY BY: Kayla Monetta
FADER contributors cross boroughs, counties and states to find fine thrifted and vintage pieces on the cheap for our column, Thrintage. This week, Kayla Monetta hit up the East Village to check out Metropolis Vintage.
Walking into this store is like a time warp back to an edgier St. Marks, bringing back predominately ’80s inspired prints and styles sprinkled with a western feel, stuff you can imagine old-school East Village kids wearing. Metropolis is a bit pricey, but everything is one of a kind so it’s worth it.
Metropolis is the very first vintage store that I fell in love with when I first came to the city. I saw some gorgeous boots in the window and I wandered right in. Turns out, Metropolis is famous for carrying about a billion vintage boots and adding aged gold studs to them. Boots are in the $50 range, but the popular lace up studded versions can be up to $195 a pair.
Both leopard print and floral-lined jean jackets are what I would call ’80s masterpieces.
Liz Clairborne vintage floral dresses are always a summer staple, and Metropolis delivers some amazing prints. This Navajo styled shirt is another summer look.
Cheetah print floral lined jean jacket: $45.00
Vintage lace-up boots with aged studs: $195.00
Jean dress with studs: $35.00
Floral dresses: $35.00
Navajo inspired collared shirt: $19.00
Vintage Mountain printed jacket: $55.00

Jesse Malin been around The East village for a long time and I think he knows a bit about Vintage, so it was a great honor that he included us in his guide to the East Village and it is not to bad to be mentioned in the same sentence as ROBERT DENIRO. THANKS JESSE
Wow take a look at these vintage leather spats(gaiters) that we have in our store “Military vintage surplus 1950’s leather.“Our Online Store“. Each spat that we have is a little different than all the other ones so you have to pick out the one that you like the best. We don’t have many of them so buy now because we might never get them in again.
