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!
