Start The Year Off In A Vintage CARHARTT Sweatshirt!

 

CARHARTT have long been the name for dependable, durable, rugged work wear.  When it’s time to keep warm and look cool, there’s no better option.  In those cases where one would want something a a bit more lightweight, never fear, we at METROPOLIS have collected a fine selection of CARHARTT SWEATSHIRTS for you.  They’ve always been popular on the street, but since Kanye West was spotted walking around in one or two items, they’ve gone straight to the top.  Kick off the new year in a Carhartt sweatshirt and you’ll be ready for anything!

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.

Check out our FRINGED JACKETS for MEN!

Mad-men-stan-leather-fringe

We’ve noticed one item making an unexpected comeback with the clientele in our store – MEN’S FRINGED JACKETS!  Dennis Hopper and John Voight both helped to popularize this look in films like Midnight Cowboy and Easy Rider, and you may have caught Stan from Mad Men rocking a sweet suede version this season.  Though it looks super cool, fringe originally served a purpose – letting rain drip off and getting the jacket to dry much faster.  You may not have any use for that if you thought ahead to bring an umbrella, but all that fringe will surely look cool swinging back and forth while you’re running from the ladies!

For many more T-Shirts, Jackets, Shoes, Boots, and other vintage items, be sure to have a look at our online stores: METROPOLIS NYC VINTAGE and METROPOLIS TSHIRTS. We have also just opened an outpost on SHOPIFY!

 

Stay as dry as British Royalty with one of our BARBOUR JACKETS!

BARBOURJACKETSMETROPOLISVINTAGE

Originally founded back in 1894 as an oil cloth import service, the company J. Barbour & Sons was famously known for their waterproof waxed-cotton jackets.  Due to the infamously soggy British climate, these jackets became a staple of British life and soon spread in popularity across the world.  Today, many similar waxed-cotton jackets are referred to as “Barbour Jackets”, whether made by Barbour or not!  Lady Diana was often seen sporting a Barbour throughout the 1980’s when she could certainly have had anything she wanted to wear.  We have quite a few currently in store, so stop by and pick one up.  If it’s good enough to keep British Royalty dry, it’s probably good enough for you, too!
