Men’s Vintage Shops in the DC Area

I have taken the hunt of finding vintage finds for guys in the Washington, DC area. I know that there are plenty of spots but I just don’t think guys have patience like women to look through loads and loads of clothing that are all different and nothing is alike.

I decided to do some research as well as use my some of my own vintage spots that I have been to many times. There are some stores that have loads of mens clothing and others that have small sections.
I will start out with the stores that I have seen the large sections. The first will have to be Georgia Ave Thrift which is located at 6100 Georgia Ave NW and this store has a huge section for men. You have to take a serious look but you might get lucky.

PollySue in Takoma Park has an entire downstairs portion dedicated to men’s vintage wear. They have some pretty unique pieces. I also always find that one piece for myself that is unique and one of a kind.

Another place that will probably have a pretty big selection for guys is the Goodwill located at 2200 South Dakota Ave. I have never personally been inside this thrift store but I remember as a kid, we would drop stuff off here quite often. I would imagine them having a huge selection.

There is a new thrift shop that collects a lot of name brand merchandise that is a part of Martha’s Kitchen and it is called Martha’s Outfitters which is located on 14th st, not too far from U Street.

Some stores that have small selections but could be worth your while is It’s Vintage Darling. I have seen some super cool pieces here for guys. They are quite selective and pick some of the most amazing vintage pieces.

I hope that I was able to cover your vintage needs because I know it can be hard trying to figure out where to go. I love vintage shops and love quality and unique pieces that no one else will have.

Good luck with your vintage hunt fellas!

P.S. There is one more that I found out from a friend that is called Dr. K’s and it is located on U Street. They focus on men’s vintage clothing in particular.
