This place is fantastic if you are looking for vintage rock ts, or leather boots in hard to find sizes. It's pretty fantastic overall; great selection of everything stocked, I could spend days going through all of their well organized racks and shelves. However, I was pretty bummed when I saw that the amazing collection of vintage ts on the walls were from a private collection and not for sale. After I left, I called back three times asking for a means of contacting the collection owner (a man outside the store had told me that he bought items from the wall before, after getting the number and calling the owner), and on my third try (I was possessed by the image of the shirt, and figured I had to prove how much I wanted it in order to stand a chance of getting it) the sales girl told me hesitantly that he would be in the store in three days and that I could come in and make an offer then. Three days from then was Christmas day though, and I was out of town; so the memory of one shirt is haunting me, and I'm going to have to try again the next time I'm in the neighborhood. But if you can handle the inevitable heartbreak, this store is among the best of the best for vintage clothing.

Only go into this place if you can tolerate a whole team of sales people with bad attitudes, who like to say "no" . They speak to each other in Japanese, and scowl at the shoppers. I tried to get in ten minutes before closing and was turned away. Another time when I was there towards the end of the day, they had turned out the lights in half of the store and different employees followed me around saying that the store was closing, over and over. Forget about trying anything on, they make sure everyone is out on the street ten minutes before the scheduled closing time. Plus, all the stuff hanging up high is not for sale. I'm a vintage buyer/collector and I think the owner of the store should know how the staff behaves. With all the other cool vintage places in Williamsburg, I'll be crossing this place off my list.
