Best of Boston

2003 BEST Vintage Clothing

The Garment District

You might have trouble concentrating on the threads inside this giant Alice-in-Wonderland warehouse. After all, the décor—from a statue of a silver horse in full stampede to a collection of Velvises behind the counter—is as sense-boggling as the merchandise. Direct your eyes to the back room, however, and you’ll find racks and racks of corduroy, gabardine, and polyester from every decade and in all the colors of the rainbow. Leather biker jackets fondle Jackie-O dresses, and go-go boots tease leisure suits in this spacious checkerboard-tiled playland. Chances are you’ll find your style, whether it’s Father Knows Best, The Mod Squad, or The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
