Second-hand and vintage clothing has grown to become the style savvy student’s best friend. Shopping on a budget on the High Street is a lot more difficult these days, and Glasgow is one of the nation’s best cities to get your mitts on some great vintage clothing. Whether you’re looking for forties glamour, sixties cool, or even a Bond-esque tuxedo (stranger things have been seen at 9am lectures), there’s something for everyone. So, elbows at the ready, as I bring you the best of the city’s retro retail.
Watermelon – 603 Great Western Road, West End
A favourite of model and style icon Agyness Deyn, Watermelon is great for unique finds at prices your granny would approve of. The shop itself is colourful and endearing, with plenty of suitcases brimming with old accessories to get stuck in to. Tweed jackets, retro band tees, and fifties frocks are Watermelon’s speciality, and I defy anyone who tries on a top hat and doesn’t consider trying to bring them back (I’m still visualising waltzing into The Union with one atop my head to fist-pumps and applause…one day).
Starry, Starry Night- 19 Dowanside Lane, West End
Less vintage boutique, more dressing-up box for grown-ups/clothing museum, ‘Starry, Starry Night’ is definitely Glasgow’s most theatrical vintage store. Here, you can find delicate Victorian gowns and gorgeous one-of-a-kind costume jewellery, as well as genuine military jackets, complete with an array of medallions. What sets the boutique apart from others in the West End is that each piece is so grandiose that you can’t help but wonder where it came from- definitely worth a rummage.
We Love to Boogie – 100 Byres Road, West End
A tad more expensive than the others, ‘We Love To Boogie’ specialises in garments from as early as the 1800s, and offers interesting period pieces you’re unlikely to find anywhere else, as well as more modern items, such a battered old biker jackets and even a few designer finds. The store has a very cool, grunge-y British vibe, with exposed brick walls and bunting in every corner. It also has a cafe for indoor or outdoor dining- clothes and food, what more could you want?!
Mr. Ben – 101 King Street, City Centre
Venturing out from the rustic West End, Mr. Ben is one of the city’s largest vintage stores and it’s bursting with everything from shoes to jackets to handbags, offering an eclectic mix of styles from every decade of fashion. Despite its size, every nook and cranny is filled to capacity with beautiful eye-catching displays. However, you won’t have to look hard for something special, as Mr. Ben spoils you for choice, catering even to the oft over-looked male retro enthusiast.d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’).appendChild(s);
