There might be a time in the consciousness of a vintage clothing lover when we wonder, “Where is all the vintage clothing for men?” Men’s vintage shops are practically non-existent. BUT we have Crowley Vintage, magical land of tweed and gentlemanly esoterica. Sean Crowley, a good friend, is the owner behind the well-crafted jewel box of a shop. Think Savile Row suits, art deco smoking jackets, authentic English military items.
Unique shop specializing in fine and costume jewelry from many eras. They have some very high-end pieces, but also these wonderful drawers filled with lower cost baubles, which make me feel like a kid in a candy store. Significant others take note: my husband has scored some of my most treasured gifts from him at Pippin!
This charity thrift shop in Gramercy always comes through for me. Clothing takes up about a third of the shop space, but I always find a piece I end up loving to shreds. The rest of the shop is a well-curated mix of housewares and objects. They skew more contemporary, but have an eclectic mix, and good prices!
One-of-a-kind destination shop filled with classic haberdashery items and well-curated vintage home goods, all with a dandy flair. All things masculine like bow ties, belts, boater hats, cufflinks, and Kilim slippers. New items such as waistcoats and hats (many designed by the shop) are mixed expertly with vintage crystal bar sets, tie clips, Ivy League memorabilia, and other charmingly arcane gifts. An amazing place owned by delightful dandy duo Matt Fox and Enrique Crame lll.
13th Street in Manhattan is my favorite Beacon’s location. I always find something and the prices can’t be beaten. A mix of weird contemporary, basics, and vintage (for example a gorgeous cocktail dress that will be in shreds by the end of the day unless you save it!), with a very high turnover of stock. Fun people watching.
