Vintage DENIM JACKETS from METROPOLIS – Made to outlast their owner!

IMG_1942-Jeans-Museum-Piles-of-sorted-denim-jackets-for-the-inventory
First created by Levi Strauss 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!

Let Your Freak Flag Fly at Metropolis Vintage

American flag wear can be seen as a throwback to a simpler time of Easy Rider, free love and the hippie movement. As the great Abbie Hoffman displayed,
it can symbolize rebellion for the good of the values that founded this country.  Or, as the great Vanilla Ice displayed . . . well, I don’t know.  We’ve got stars and stripes of many kinds at Metropolis Vintage, be sure to stop by and have a look
