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…

It’s Time For SWEATSHIRTS Of The 1990’s!

’90s SWEATSHIRTS are back with a vengeance! Stripes and bold neon colors were the order of the day and we’ve got them all in stock right now.  To some, the ’90s feel like just yesterday but in fact, it WAS 20 years ago and items from that era are certifiably vintage at this point – some cool, some ugly, some a bit of both!  Nevertheless, whether you’re indulging in some nostalgia from your teenage years or want to grab a piece of a bygone era, you can find your perfect ’90s item at METROPOLIS VINTAGE today!

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!
