Who is the RetroMan?
You are! It is because you appreciate the unique styles of days passed. Back in the day a man would pay extra attention to what he wore. Putting on a suit for everyday attire was the norm. Add a pair of suspenders, cufflinks and a stylish tie pin he was ready for anything the day brought.
My dad was The Original RetroMan in my life. He was always in tune with his own sense of style. He did appreciate a well made suit, mens accessories and yes a nice pair of shoes. I so adored him. My fondest memories are of him letting me comb his hair before he had to go to work. He would let me put on tons of gel, actually more than he needed but he did not complain. His taste in fashion was well supplied but always in budget. He knew how to shop; department stores and second hand shops were always places we would visit. I was blessed to have him in my life and when he went home my heart went with him. Mama joined him on Christmas Eve and I believe they dance somewhere among the stars. Dad is my inspiration for this shop. My favorite treasures of him are his books and a cigar box of old tie clips and watches.
Etsy has allowed me to follow a life long dream of having my own shop. Operating in this virtual world has given me the opportunity to earn a living and take care of my family. I have been blessed to meet new people from all over the world. My goal is to share the treasures I discover with anyone who is willing to appreciate them once again. A vintage piece is a glimpse of someone's life and recycling it is a nice act of respect. My parents influenced me in the art of recycling and taking care of our fragile earth as is evident in my shop. It just breaks my heart when something is unnecessarily thrown out that may be of use or value to someone else. Just so you know I do my best to recycle as much as possible. Most times, my shipping materials are recycled and minimal but they are still useful... so I am just trying to do my part :) I don't use fancy thank you cards or wrapping but I do appreciate ALL my customers and it is my hope my vintage item will suffice in making your day be Extra special. My goal is to make sure every RetroMan transaction is a positive one.
I have been priveledged to work with Etsy since 2010 when I opened my vintage shop for the ladies: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CasitaDeLita. From that shop I was inspired to open this shop for men. I do believe how you dress, no matter what line of work you’re in, is about more than just appearance. Style in clothing is about expression of the self through selection and maintenance of gear that reflects the tastes and pride of the individual. RetroMan Vintage can assist you with that pride.

For My Dad: There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. ~John Gregory Brown
Thank you for stopping by and Have a super day :)
Fashions fade, style is eternal. ~Yves Saint Laurent
Customer satisfaction is my top priority as I believe I will only make a first impression once. Together we can make good things happen. Enjoy the day!

PLEASE NOTE: Vintage goods may have some minor flaws simply due to age. I will note major stains, holes, etc. but not pin size spots or flaws. I do my best to describe all my shop items to the best of my ability. Please understand that any item may not be 100% free of minor blemishes. As computer monitors differ, colors may also vary. All vintage pieces will be presented as such. However if you feel that I have overlooked something major, please contact me ♥
Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage sizes ARE NOT equivalent to contemporary sizes.
All garments are laid upon a flat surface then measured as follows:
Example: if the bust is 17" width laid flat then the bust size will be 34"
Bust: Measured from armpit to armpit seam x2.
Waist:Natural waist/Smallest point of bodice x2.
Hip: Widest point below waist x2.
Total Length: Top of shoulder seam to bottom of hem.
Shoulder Span:Across back, one shoulder seam to another.
Sleeve: Measured from seam where it joins the shoulder to the end of sleeve.
Shoe Insoles: Measured from the interior, heel to tip.
Shoe Width: Measured at the ball's widest point, on the shoe's exterior.
It is recommended that for you to get the best fit you should measure a similar garment or similar shoe you own the same way to see if it will work for you :)
Everything we offer (unless otherwise stated) you is 20+ years of age and will have normal vintage wear. Detectable blemishes will be noted in the item's description. As computer monitors differ, colors may also vary slightly.
I am fortunate to be living in a very desirable retirement community and have found many beautiful treasures from around the world. Please contact me if you have a special "wish list", questions or concerns.
