It’s amusing to think of DeLuca and Giuseppe of An Affordable Wardrobe, who also began selling online recently. Both live in Cambridge and thrift from the same wellsprings. It’s not hard to picture them showing up at the same shop and wrestling over a vintage Norman Hilton suit, kind of like those women at bridal warehouse sales who claw each other over a Vera Wang gown at 90 percent off.
Newton Street Vintage specializes in tailored clothing and accessories for men. Its primary focus is mid-century collegiate style and Americana, with the occasional nod to Savile Row. We strive to curate the most desirable, highest quality vintage collection available and ensure that all items sold are in excellent condition.
While we believe that true vintage clothing is of pre-1970 provenance, we do include in the collection items of more recent origin that fit our style, such as Brooks Brothers and J.Press from the ’70s and ’80s. All items are priced according to age, rarity and condition. We source clothing constantly, with new items added weekly.
Note to US readers: 17 of Newton Street’s past 21 sales have gone to the United Kingdom. Help do your part as a patriot to keep American clothing in America. — CC
