Husband-and-wife team David and Suzanne Fitschen opened their vintage clothing archive in 1998 and have been outfitting movies and New York-based TV shows like "Sex and the City" and "Law and Order" ever since. Renting and selling vintage apparel exclusively to private clients, costume designers, and fashion designers and stylists, this mainly-trade resource is by appointment only; those who make it in will find everything from old-school sneakers to vintage dresses from such high-brow designers as Courrèges, Pucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Halston. Meticulously categorized rows of denim jackets, skirts, and even airline bags from around the world line every wall and sit like archival pieces in a clothing museum. Based on the needs of their clientele, the owners continually replenish their stock of men's and women's clothing, military wear, Hawaiian gear, western duds, and children’s and turn-of-the-century items. But browsers beware: Since the store primarily caters to collectors and those in the costume, theater, or design trade, there’s precious little hope of dropping by without an appointment.
