“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 . . .

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!

Finally, it is our pleasure to unveil our new T-SHIRT design by none other than JOHN HOLMSTROM! Available in all sizes at our shop as well as online right HERE!
Coming in on the earliest days of the CBGB’s scene, he’s been there from the beginning – as founder, editor and illustrator of the legendary PUNK MAGAZINE.
Since the mag’s inception in 1975, JOHN HOLMSTROM has covered it all in print – and ink. THE RAMONES. BLONDIE. LOU REED. RICHARD HELL. SUICIDE. PATTI SMITH. THE SEX PISTOLS . . and anyone else you care to mention.
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.

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!

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!
