NAUTICA – the next trend!

When you see that iconic sailboat logo, you know what you’re in for. Those in the know recognize NAUTICA as the up-and-comer, the silent companion to all the Polo and Hilfiger that’s been impossible to keep in stock lately, and every true collector knows that the time to pick up the best pieces is before the word gets out. Just ask Lil’ Yachty. Come on in to METROPOLIS VINTAGE and get your NAUTICA fix before the ship sails!

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!

Be BOLD in a VINTAGE 1970’s POLYESTER SHIRT from METROPOLIS VINTAGE!

The patterned polyester shirt first came to prominence during the 1970’s disco era as a true staple of manliness and virility. Like the peacock displaying it’s plumage, the bright colors and psychedelic patterns are designed to hypnotize and seduce one’s mate. Things have not changed much in the ensuing four decades, as the polyester shirt still works it’s magic over the fairer sex. We, Metropolis Vintage, realize the power of a fine, fitted, garish 1970’s polyester shirt and therefore have a massive rack of them for you to enjoy.

Kardashians invade Metropolis Vintage

It started with a black car pulling up and ended with a huge crowd of people blocked outside of the store.  Looks like Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner stopped in to Metropolis Vintage Tuesday night to have a look through our racks:

The best in GUESS T-Shirts, Sports Shirts, and Pants at Metropolis Vintage!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As far as cool retro ’80s and ’90s shirt styles go, there’s no question that GUESS had a lock on the competition.  The brand was initiated by the famed  Georges Marciano, who came up with the name while sitting outside a McDonald’s in traffic.  There was a billboard asking the consumer to GUESS which fast food giant had the best selling cheeseburger and the rest is history.  Before long GUESS was one of the best selling clothing labels in the world so let that be a lesson that inspiration can be found anywhere!  Vintage GUESS items, however, are getting sparse, so come down to METROPOLIS and have a look through our collection of GUESS T-Shirts, GUESS Sports Shirts. and GUESS Pants!

 

Don’t forget to check out what GUESS we’ve got in our online sales department HERE!  We ship anywhere in the world!
