Unlike new clothes, vintage clothing is already broken in, has had time to establish its pedigree, and is almost always house trained. Save on ensemble obedience training with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vintage apparel and accessories at The Nitty Gritty.
Voted the Readers’ Choice Best Vintage Store in Louisville in 2010 by Leo Weekly and featured in Elle magazine, The Nitty Gritty mines vintage and retro-cut clothing gems from the quarries of time, spanning the 1920s to 1980s. Friendly, sartorially savvy staff members help browsers scout for authentic costume components or retrofit everyday wardrobes with recollective style. Swap 3-D specs for fashion eyeglasses and sunglasses that expose the velcro boundary between space and time ($10), or tug earlobes winsomely with fashion-forward, backward-glancing earrings ($6–$10). Put on a men's fedora ($20–$25) to add timeless oomph to suits, trench coats, and rainy outdoor business dance-offs, or sling on a vintage purse ($12–$25) for whacking burglar-costume wearers.
