Topical Tropical Trends for Spring/Summer 2012

Spring is definitely in the air early this year, hell it's 60F today and still only February! It's got us excited about all the awesome threads we've been stashing away over the last few months! We'll be posting lots of great trends and finds over the next weeks, and we have already started to load up the shop with some brighter and lighter treasures!

The designers have been loving the tropical floral, neon and abstract prints, and so have we, and it looks like the Spring & Summer will be dominated by these bold and colorful looks.

AMT Vintage Showroom NOW OPEN by Appointment!

Last Friday saw the soft opening of our long-time-in-the-making Vintage Showroom! We are thrilled with the early response, and happy to announce we are now making appointments there so you can view our higher-end vintage collection Mon-Fri. We will also be working on an online catalog in the coming weeks and moths for those of you unable to visit the space in person!

Ladies can expect to find those sought-after vintage designer gems from the likes of Chanel, Comme Des Garcons, YSL, Lanvin, Valentino, along with equally desirable boutique and couture gowns, dresses, separates & accessories! We also have a healthy selection of fragile early treasures from the late 1800's through the 1930's, some great 1920's-60's swimwear, not to mention Deadstock eyeglass frames & Sunglasses from the 50's & 60's.

Our smaller Mens collection is filled with special pieces none the less, and focuses on one-of-a-kind satin jackets, early formal wear, rock tees, antique & vintage military/band jackets, sports & knitwear, and other oddities like engineer goggles & glasses, vintage Ray-bans etc. We will be adding to the collections frequently, striving to keep everything as fresh as the store on Grove Street!

Here are some pictures from last Fridays event captured by Marinell (thanks!) at Jersey City's street style blog Downtown Natch, check out her site for more pics...
