RETROLANDChicago's Shop Announcement

READY TO WEAR VINTAGE - items are Professionally cleaned & repaired by expensive specialists.

"When a piece of clothing has an artistic element, it has a magic effect on the person who wears it and gives them joy." Emilio Pucci

What our store defines as "ready to wear" --- this means we remove stains and smells, repair open seams, holes (re weaved or repaired depending on the fabric), missing buttons or other notions, we even correct bad or unprofessional alterations.

We specialize in the 1960's & 70's. Our focus is on the fellow connoisseur & collector which is why we clean and restore our items for you.

The men's clothing buyer has left to open his own Etsy shop very soon, otherwise you can find his items on eBay under the username: rockposterchild

Our client lists include celebrities, TV shows, movie & theater wardrobe, prop houses, & most importantly they are all return customers who shop frequently. Why? Because they get the garments without needing to do anything to them but alterations.

You will see a lot of our collection on period piece TV shows, movies, musicals, and more...I am currently working with a museum curator in Oregon doing an exhibit about psychedelic posters and how the music of that era influenced fashion in the late 1960's.

We care a lot about our customers & offer an entirely different experience from other stores you've shopped with. I personally spend thousands every month for my customers. You may have also noticed we use mannequins to show the fit of clothing rather than models. We choose to put our money into cleaning our garments rather than paying models to wear dirty ones.

We take pride in having all our items cleaned / repaired by expensive expert specialists which gives my customers value for their money. There is NO other store like mine in the universe. I raise the bar for all other sellers in the vintage clothing business.

Why we are firm on our prices: Our cleaning bill every month is MORE than what people pay in rent for their brick n mortars. We pay a lot of $$$ for our items and have even more $ invested in cleaning them.

**Payment / Layaway Plans available. We are NOT accepting any offers at this time.

**I do NOT hold or reserve items without a deposit. I am happy to work with all budgets just message me to start the conversation. Thank you!

**My store is NOT a resource for other Sellers on this site: If you copy paste or steal my listings / include links from my store --- I will report you to my ATTORNEY.

**We do not lend out any of our RESTORED clothing to fashion photographers or bloggers. You must purchase them at full price if you want them for your project. Thank you.
