Get tough with a vintage LEATHER MOTORCYCLE JACKET from Metropolis Vintage

We here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE love a good leather jacket. A well-fitting MC jacket is cool, timeless look iconicized by James Dean, The Ramones, and many others.  We’ve got a heavy rack of leather here in our store, only a few blocks away from the famous spot behind CBGB where The Ramones posed for the cover of their first LP. Although Johnny’s the only one rocking a true motorcycle jacket for that one. Fun fact: John Holmstrom of Punk Magazine and Ramones illustration fame recently designed our store logo. At any rate, stop by and slap on a classic leather motorcycle jacket before the weather gets cold. We strive to find all sizes, including smaller ones which are always in high demand and the quickest to fly off the shelves. Get tough!

While you’re at it, check out the denim and leather section on our ETSY store. We ship anywhere!

 

Go BACK TO SCHOOL with METROPOLIS Vintage VARSITY JACKETS

VINTAGE VARSITY JACKETS are a cool, casual look for retro fans of any age!  Once reserved for the star athlete, they now appear on everyone from models to Michael Jackson. They work well for a great ’80s look, as you might remember flicks like Revenge Of The Nerds and Teen Wolf. We may even have your school if you’re lucky.  Either way, come down to METROPOLIS VINTAGE and find a Varsity or Letterman Jacket that suits you!  We’ve also got a selection on our online ETSY shop which you can check out HERE!

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!

For many more T-Shirts, Jackets, Shoes, Boots, and other vintage items, be sure to have a look at our online stores: METROPOLIS NYC VINTAGE and METROPOLIS TSHIRTS. We have also just opened an outpost on SHOPIFY!
