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!

A tale of TUXEDO TAILCOATS at Metropolis Vintage!

fred-astaire

What could be more dapper than a tuxedo coat with tails? Also known as a “swallow-tail” or “claw hammer“, flip on Turner Classic Movies at any given time and you’re bound to see a dapper gent wearing one. Everyone from Clark Gable to Fred Astaire owned one, the latter immortalized his tailcoat in song during one of his most famous films of 1935.  While the world may not yet be ready for a top hat or monocle resurgence, the tailcoat looks elegant and adds the edge of class you need for that extra special occasion. Unfortunately, they are becoming harder and harder to find these days, but we at METROPOLIS VINTAGE remain eagle-eyed and stalwartly search for the finest in vintage menswear for you. Come on down and catch the tail of a tuxedo tailcoat before they’re all gone!

METROPOLIS VINTAGE on INLIFE IN THE BIG APPLE with CHRIS BROW

INLIFE

CHRIS BROW of the international INLIFE show on LYONESS TV takes his viewers on a fun and informative tour of New York City – from Williamsburg, past the Museum Of Modern Art to Queens, and finally, a stop at METROPOLIS to talk vintage with our shop manager Drew Redmond. Check it out here! We appear at approximately 4:33, but the whole episode is great:

Chris Brow takes us along on his rather special New York city walk. He shows us what the “Big Apple” has to offer over and above classic points of interest in terms of culture, fashion and entertainment. So Chris takes us on a stroll through the districts of Brooklyn, Queens and of course Manhattan. Expect a few surprise discoveries!

Thanks to CHRIS and LYONESS TV, you’re welcome back anytime!
