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!

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!

While you’re at it, check out the denim and leather section on our ETSY store. We ship anywhere!

ABOUT JOHN:

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.
