I strongly recommend Resurrection, a vintage store in New York. Â Although it's mostly a women store, it does have some men's items. Â I bought a vintage YSL blazer on Monday, and I like it so much. Â I paid only about 140 dollars for this blazer. Â I don't know how old it is exactly, but it should be at least 25-30 years old judging for the cutting and style. Â After all that's just my guess since I don't really have much knowlege about fashion of 30 years ago in either Europe or the US. Â What really matters is that it fits me so perfectly and I really love those vintage-looking YSL logo embossed buttons. Â To me, this is really a gem. There was also a small-sized pale-green Fendi short-sleeved sweater when I was there. Â The chest is covered by Fendi logo. Â It looks very nice too. Â But there are just too many fake Fendi stuff all around, I just worry that everybody will think it's fake when an un-richman-looking young man like me wears it, so I didn't buy it. Â The other item I like a lot is a Pierre Cardin wool suits. Â I can't remember exactly what's the pattern, but it should be some sort of brown-beige stripes. Â Unfortunately it doesn't fit me. Â I don't know much about the vintage market of NYC, maybe there are some even much better vintage stores around the town, but to me this is a quite decent one. Â I will defintely visit it again the next time when I go to NYC for vacation.
