METROPOLIS Christmas Window by JAMES & KARLA MURRAY

Metropolis Vintage is honored to have our Christmas window captured by James & Karla Murray for their collection of the best East Village storefront windows this year!  The Murrays have made their name photographing the changing face of NYC over the past few decades.  Check out their photo books for some really cool, old world signage and remnants of old New York!

Here are some of our favorite Christmas window displays around Greenwich Village and the East Village, NYC this year. These are all from small independent businesses!  #shopsmall  We wish everyone a very happy holiday and a joyous New Year!

Across “the pond” they call them “jumpers”… here they are “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” and are big business…

Return of the Long Sleeved Rock Shirts

A staple of the 1990’s, the long sleeved rock shirt adorned many a grunge kid and any skateboarder worth his salt.  Lately, this tradition seems to have been taken over by the metal crowd, but we at Metropolis Vintage have been collecting these for some time now and think the public is ready for them once again!  We’ve unearthed a huge batch which we’ve just put out on the racks so you can replace the short sleeve version with the longer, winterized model.

KOЯN T-Shirts – Not banned at Metropolis Vintage

Pioneers of the Nu-Metal sound, KOЯN have their fair share of supporters and detractors.  Just ask Michigan teenager Eric VanHoven, who, in 1998, was suspended for wearing a KOЯN shirt deemed too unsafe for school.  Assistant Principal and non-music critic Gretchen Plewes described the band as “indecent, vulgar, obscene and intends to be insulting”, but the band donated hundreds of t-shirts and gave them away for free outside the school doors.  While our KOЯN shirts aren’t free, we’ve got a huge selection here at Metropolis Vintage and certainly don’t object to you wearing one around our store!
