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.

Ah yes, the velvet jacket – destined to go down in history as one of the most tactile textiles known to man. Any self-respecting bachelor of the 1970’s owned one in every shade, in hopes that some nubile bachelorette would find the fine fabric irresistible to the touch. Paired with a scarf, a velvet jacket forms the cornerstone of the classic shaggy-haired-rock-dandy look. Mick Jagger himself will tell you that they go quite well with a bottle of red wine – in which case you may opt for a darker burgundy shade in case of spillage. The popularity of this garment continues throughout the ages, so naturally we’ve got some in stock for you here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE. Come on down and feel one for yourself!
