"best" is of course subjective, but I approve for the most part.

I'm not familiar with alot of the places mentioned but I like that their focus was on vintage stores with a multitude of offerings (like what goes around comes around) as opposed to smaller boutiques (like Resurrection) which compete in the same market but don't have the same range of goods.

Of course alot of those stores don't exclusively carry vintage.

What do you guys think?
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!

I haven't been to any of 'em. But they seem to hit all the ones I hear stories about. Has anyone ever been to one of these?

Was just reading this article the other night. I'm in L.A. and planning to hit the Mister Freedom store soon.

I was a little surprised they didn't mention Jet Rag in Hollywood. Here's a couple pics. The place is huge! 2 stories of pure vintage!

Whoa, that's what I appear Heaven to look like, only without all of the naked girls.

and then there's Filth Mart. Although from what I hear it's tees 3X the price of eBay....but they have rich/celebrity clients. They bought that Mickey Mouse on heroin shirt from us for $90 a few years back and probably sold it for $500 to Lindsay Lohan. She probably spilled red wine all over it and threw it out. :cry:

:lol: Good one James!

Filthmart has a very cool website but they haven't updated in at least 3 years.
