Today we visit the world of the METROPOLIS VINTAGE T-Shirt department in honor of our current in-store T-Shirt sale: Purchase one tee and receive HALF OFF another T-Shirt of $65 value or less.  In contrast to the oft untamed wilds of other shops T-Shirt sections, the staff here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE has painstakingly organized our diverse selection of shirts into a host of different categories.   CARTOONS bleeding into the Motor Cycle section?  Classic Rock mixing with PUNK?  We can’t have that!  Here we showcase a few random pulls from some of our popular sections to show you what we’ve got.  Come on in anytime and find some cool tees for yourself or a loved one! There are many more shirts of all styles and designs than can be shown here!

“The World Is Yours” with a vintage SCARFACE T-Shirt from METROPOLIS!

“He Loved The American Dream . . . With A Vengeance”

All hail Tony Montana! It’s one of the most enduring cult films of all time – SCARFACE. Some say it’s Pacino’s greatest role of all time. Fortunately, you don’t need a mountain of cash to own a cool vintage T-Shirt from the film. We here at Metropolis Vintage have been keeping an eye peeled, and picking them off one by one. First you get the money, then you get the power . . .

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. Stop in and grab one now and be a delight to eyeballs everywhere!

JOHN may be most notably known for his work with THE RAMONES, illustrating covers for their classic ROCKET TO RUSSIA and ROAD TO RUIN albums.

His work and unmistakably iconic style is now recognized worldwide, rising from the gutters of the Bowery to be appreciated around the globe.

Feel good in one of our vintage ’90s SILK SHIRTS!

If you want the ultimate in comfort AND style, come down to Metropolis Vintage and try on one of our luxurious early 1990’s silk shirts. If it looks like our model here is enjoying himself, you have no idea. We had to pry the poor man out of that silk, and then finally promise him we’d find more in his size.  As it stands, there’s a fine crop of colorful, soft silk shirts waiting here for you that don’t quite fit him.  They were a staple of early ’90s life, and now you can revive, relive and create new memories in one.  Nice and lightweight for the summer months!

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!
