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!

New York City’s Largest Selection of Vintage U.S. NAVY PEA COATS!


Here at Metropolis Vintage, the winter’s coming into full swing and sailors know there’s no better way to keep warm than buttoned up in a fine vintage U.S. Navy Pea Coat.  Naval rumor has it that the heavy blue twill fabric known as “pilot cloth” gave them the name “Pilot Jackets”, which was eventually shortened to just the letter “P” and “Pea Coat” along the way.  With the trademark oversized buttons, and slash or vertical pockets, their style has hardly changed in the years since their inception.  Designed for maximum protection  and maximum durability, Pea Coats have been a longtime favorite for seafaring men and landlubbers alike, since they’re not only warm but stylish.  Metropolis Vintage has a variety of Pea Coats, from the classic 1950’s Navy-issue blue jacket to more modern versions in white or black.  You’ll cut a dashing figure while trudging through the rain and snow this winter!

JORDANS : Rebellious Vintage Sneakers? We’ve got them!


The original AIR JORDANS from 1985 were initially designed in red and black to match the team colors of the CHICAGO BULLS.  Soon afterward, the NBA Commissioner banned them from the court, stating that they violated the dress code.  Did this deter Michael Jordan? Hell no.  He was fined $5000 every time he stepped into play wearing those sneakers, yet he never stopped wearing them.  Nike foot the bill but it was a small price to pay because soon they had a sensation on their hands.  “On October 18th, the NBA threw them out of the game. Fortunately, the NBA can’t stop you from wearing them.” went the famous ad.  Rumor had it that there was something special about that sneaker, something that would give you the edge over your competitors.  Soon, they added white to the red and black color scheme, which the NBA deemed appropriate, but the legend of the AIR JORDAN was already set.  Jordans went through many more versions over the years and, like many relics from the ’80s are hard to come by nowadays.  Luckily, we have some in stock here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE, obtained from our secret cache of ’80s gear.  Stop in and have a look, and a flashback to the days of Michael Jordan and Mars Blackmon a.k.a. Spike Lee!

Aztec Shirts are now here!  This ancient tribal print was very popular in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries before making a brief fashion resurgence in popularity during the  90’s and finally landing at Metropolis Vintage in 2013 A.D.  Their fun, eye-catching, geometric style definitely gets you noticed and looks stunning with the summer sun reflecting off these colorful  patterns.   Not just for Aztecs anymore!
