Go BACK TO SCHOOL with METROPOLIS Vintage VARSITY JACKETS

VINTAGE VARSITY JACKETS are a cool, casual look for retro fans of any age!  Once reserved for the star athlete, they now appear on everyone from models to Michael Jackson. They work well for a great ’80s look, as you might remember flicks like Revenge Of The Nerds and Teen Wolf. We may even have your school if you’re lucky.  Either way, come down to METROPOLIS VINTAGE and find a Varsity or Letterman Jacket that suits you!  We’ve also got a selection on our online ETSY shop which you can check out HERE!

As far as cool retro ’80s and ’90s shirt styles go, there’s no question that GUESS had a lock on the competition.  The brand was initiated by the famed  Georges Marciano, who came up with the name while sitting outside a McDonald’s in traffic.  There was a billboard asking the consumer to GUESS which fast food giant had the best selling cheeseburger and the rest is history.  Before long GUESS was one of the best selling clothing labels in the world so let that be a lesson that inspiration can be found anywhere!  Vintage GUESS items, however, are getting sparse, so come down to METROPOLIS and have a look through our collection of GUESS T-Shirts, GUESS Sports Shirts. and GUESS Pants!

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!
