Vintage clothing, like a grade-school diary, stands as a testament to past eras and a reminder that a perm never solved anything. Spark fashion nostalgia with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of vintage tees, boots, and more at Metropolis Vintage Apparel.

Breathe new life into fashion treasures from the troves at Metropolis Vintage Apparel. Metropolis's collection of boots includes motorcycle, cowboy, and ankle-skimming styles, ideal for showing off leg tattoos of knee-high boots. A rotating roster of vintage sports tees pay homage to a variety of teams, and an oscillating lineup of rock and concert T-shirts make a great ironic statement when worn by someone who's never heard music. The collection of 1980s-style sunglasses shield eyes from souped-up Lite Brites.

Buyers may find themselves tapping toes to one of Metropolis's occasional live shows, expertly dodging overzealous groupies and trigger-happy pricing guns on their way to the register.

Metropolis Vintage Apparel

For over 21 years, the staff of Metropolis Vintage Apparel has carefully selected an always-rotating lineup of consignment vintage clothing, shoes, and accessories. The store's roundup reflects trends from years gone by, including Victorian-inspired steampunk sunglasses that wrap around eyes with a sweep of bright chrome, boots that clothe ankles in soft, worn leather and lace, and belt buckles engraved with parent-friendly explanations of what steampunk is. Colorful patterned shirts from the early '90s mingle with acid-washed jeans, while glossy patent-leather shoes share shelf space with rustic cowboy boots. Clients can tap into their Nirvana-era nostalgia with plaid-shirt tartans or show off their tougher side with metal-studded leather jackets and eagle-emblazoned motorcycle shirts.
