Unlike new clothes, vintage clothing is already broken in, has had time to establish its pedigree, and is almost always housetrained. Save on ensemble obedience training with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vintage and retro apparel and accessories at Vintage Recalled in Five Points.
After almost 20 years of retail apprenticeship, Jason Chancey opened Vintage Recalled, an upbeat preowned fashion boutique that proudly defies the label “thrift store” by only selecting finery of the highest quality. Vintage Recalled tailors its massive selection of vintage and retro apparel to the trendiest of deal seekers—recently showcasing Levis and other denim ($14.95–$24.95), dresses ($14.95–$39.95), Western shirts for men ($16.95–$18.95), and Soviet cosmonaut jumpsuits. Feet that have gone 3,000 miles without a shoe change can reshoe themselves in a comfortably broken-in pair of Converse, Vans ($12.95–$16.95), or cowboy boots ($19.95–$44.95). Give your retro-engineered get-up a sartorial signature with patches, buttons, or belt buckles (accessories range from $1.95–$13.95).
Vintage Recalled, in addition to selling the classic threads of yester-year, also puts out regular calls to buy them via its wanted list. Fedoras are currently in demand as hardboiled-private-eye season approaches. Like an indecisive werewolf, Vintage Recalled's merchandise is always changing, so keep up on the latest acquisitions via the boutique's blog. And for every customer who forgoes or reuses a shopping bag, Vintage Recalled donates 15 cents to your choice of charities from a preselected list.
