Legendary California retailer Chuck’s Vintage has opened its first New York City outpost in the basement of 173 East 91st Street.

The eclectically decorated store’s collection of vintage denim range sfrom Strongholds found in the California Gold Rush mines to World War II-Era Levi’s, Lees, and Wranglers, as well as 1960’s ladies high-waisted and groovy deadstock Levi’s bells. Chuck’s also showcases a large sampling of vintage American workwear and sportswear for both men and women, including rugged military and work boots, buttery leather bomber jackets, and soft, perfectly worn-in vintage 1970’s rock tees.

Chuck’s was founded by the late Madeline Cammarata (aka Madeline Harmon), who began as a fashion model, where she was soon discovered by the iconic and provocative fashion photographer Helmet Newton, launching Cammarata to the runways of Europe. Photos of her are among the many decorative elements of the new store.
