Instant Classic

Vintage clothing: it tells a story.

It’s also uniquely you, because your fellow man can’t just skate on over to J.Crew to pick one up if they like the cut of your jib.

The only obstacle is finding the damn things without rifling through some musty Village shop rife with mothballs and grifters.

Corralling all the classics for you: BKLYN Dry Goods, hawking expertly picked vintage menswear and online now.

The Dry Goods hookup is twofold. First, they sift through the crates and weed out the ill-fitting, low-quality or flat-out wack gear to deliver throwback goods like patriotic polo sweaters and rugged Woolrich shirt jackets.

All killer, no filler.

Second, they’ve put together a handy lookbook full of dapper ensembles to show you exactly how to wear this stuff. Cowboy plaid paired with army green and dusty jeans. A navy horsehide bomber over a shirt/tie/sweater trifecta. How to do a down vest over a denim jacket. If nothing else, this is just first-rate visual fashion advice.

And if something strikes your fancy, you can just click on through and buy it.

Happy rifling.
