“The World Is Yours” with a vintage SCARFACE T-Shirt from METROPOLIS!

“He Loved The American Dream . . . With A Vengeance”

All hail Tony Montana! It’s one of the most enduring cult films of all time – SCARFACE. Some say it’s Pacino’s greatest role of all time. Fortunately, you don’t need a mountain of cash to own a cool vintage T-Shirt from the film. We here at Metropolis Vintage have been keeping an eye peeled, and picking them off one by one. First you get the money, then you get the power . . .

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.

Cool CAMEL Cigarette Clothes Collection at Metropolis Vintage!

Do you remember the era of CAMEL cash? Attached to each Camel cigarette pack about be a certain amount of $$ with Joe Camel in the center, eventually redeemable for anything from hats, to T-Shirts, to a pool table.    My Uncle was the king of Camel cigarette collecting and had a mountain of it, with which he could have probably bought a Camel Ferrari.  I do rememeber he had a sweet leather bomber jacket.  We haven’t found one of those YET – but we’re still looking.  In the meantime, Metropolis Vintage has plenty of rare CAMEL Cigarette and Joe Camel T-Shirts and items waiting here for you.   Worth checking out and you don’t even have to go back in time and collect all those packs!

It’s easy to become a sharp dressed man in a ZZ TOP T-Shirt from METROPOLIS VINTAGE!

ZZ TOP. That would be Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard – and a band that has been rocking beards approximately forty-six years before this hipster craze.  Amazingly enough, they’ve been around and have held the same lineup since 1969, though many of their hits hit in the mid-eighties.  Whatever the status of your facial hair might be, you too can own a vintage ZZ TOP T-Shirt provided by your friends here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE.  Since we’ve already used the most obvious cliche in the title of this post, we’ll spare you any more and just say that we’ve got an entire selection dedicated to the bearded boys, so stop in and have a look!
