From Leave It to Beaver to Saturday Night Fever, Eleven’s vintage clothing and shoes for men and women cover a range of periods. Irish-born owner Oliver Harkness began selling secondhand stuff on the streets of London in the early eighties and, to avoid having to cart home unsold items from his Camden Market stall, always made sure his prices were too good to pass up. Over the years, Harkness developed a curator’s eye and eventually moved to Manhattan, but his pricing philosophy remains the same; Eleven’s price tags, even for kickin’ women’s cowboy boots, are like those at thrift stores. There are always plenty of $20 Levis, $10 ties, and $5 team, tourist, and concert T-shirts, too, leading Nolita neighbors in need of cool-again casual clothes to try on the corner shop’s synthetic knits, polyester dresses, and leather jackets. Buyers in six states help Harkness replenish his wares, and the store specializes in women’s shoes and dead-stock sneakers such as first edition Air Jordans. Unlike Goodwill, however, most of the goods are in great condition and in keeping with the retro-trend of the millisecond.
