Perfect for my bike commute to work. Lovely deep front pockets. And, unexpectedly, so soft! The straps feel like they're hugging my shoulders instead of digging into them. Love this bag!

Having fun in the studio shooting our handmade Citizen Vintage cropped tees and being photobombed by Mr Stitch. It's okay, he makes all our handmade items so we let it slide :)

Curated vintage shop catering to men and women based in Montreal.

The idea behind Citizen Vintage is to provide a sustainable alternative to the fast fashion brands by recycling and up-cycling vintage pieces and materials. Our love for vintage clothing goes beyond aesthetics- being stylish and creating beautiful outfits doesn’t have to be environmentally harmful.

The girls each grew up being very much into vintage and thrifting thanks to their moms. Both ladies had picked up great pieces in the 60's and 70's and passed this love of clothing and fashion onto their daughters. Thanks mom!

How we got started:

Lara and Becky met during their very first pop up vintage sale. The girls respectively had an extensive vintage collection and decided to continue on working together from that point. Their pop ups were so successful and they worked so well together that they entertained the idea of opening a shop. One day planning another pop up, they came upon a "for rent" sign on St Laurent in the Mile End, inquired about the space and well... the rest is history.

Why the name "Citizen":

It is a difficult process and took much deliberating. Ultimately we agreed on the name Citizen, as it speaks to the people on the street, the faces we see everyday in our neighborhood that we draw inspiration from.

What is Citizen's look"?"

Becky: Lara and I each have distinctive ideas of what we we shop for, however our overall image for the store is shared. I'm more classic and I think she has more of an edge for the atmosphere on the street. I think the differences in our styles is an asset, it creates more diversity in our stock.

Lara: Quality is really important to us, fabric and construction are key. We don't sell anything with tears or stains, we spend a lot of time on quality control and repairs!

Notes on Sizing and Garment Care:

Each garment is machine washed before being listed, only if it is appropriate to the material (eg: cotton, polyester, rayon, etc). Materials that require special care (leather, wool coats, silk, etc) have not been machine washed or dry cleaned but are assured to be in the best condition.

The following is a description of how each garment is measured. Each garment is measured while laying flat on a hard surface. For actual bust, waist and hip measurements, double the given measurement for actual circumference. For example, if a given waist measurement is 14" the actual circumference is 28"

*Bust: Underarm seam to underarm seam (remember that bat wing and drop shoulder garments will give larger bust measurements)
*Waist: Taken at the smallest point, empire waists will be noted
*Hips: Taken at widest point
*Length: Taken from Nape to bottom hem
*Sleeve: Taken from Underarm to bottom of cuff
*Shoulders: Taken across the back of the garment at the very top of shoulder seams

***Please compare each measurement to a similar garment you already own for the best assured fit!
