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!

Ever seen a ’70s t-shirt with a drawing of a “New Wave” Bugs Bunny dressed up in a leather jacket, surrounded by logos of bands like RICHARD HELL, THE SAINTS, THE DEAD BOYS, THE RAMONES and TALKING HEADS? Well no, we didn’t either until we came across one while searching for more of the vintage rock, punk, metal and goth shirts for you to check out. METROPOLIS VINTAGE is fully stocked with a wide array of vintage rock t-shirts, whatever your taste. We’ve got classic rock like the ROLLING STONES, GRATEFUL DEAD or BOB DYLAN and old ’70s ALICE COOPER shirts. We’ve got thrashed metal shirts from ANTHRAX and SLAYER to more obscure rare punk & new wave fare like BUSH TETRAS and THE GUN CLUB. Looking for a SMITHS or MORRISSEY T-shirt? A DEVO shirt that comes with an original concert stub from a show back in 1982? Vintage CRAMPS or DEAD BOYS shirt? We’ve got “All This And More” down at METROPOLIS VINTAGE store or on our ETSY site on the web!
