Come with me, won't you?
Let's take a trip back in time to Regal Vintage.
Like Shangri-La or Brigadoon, Regal Vintage is conspicuously inconspicuous from the outside looking in. But open the door to Regal Vintage and you're transported into a world of retro-cool fashionista possibility.
James (the chap on the left) caught the vintage bug when he was very young. Fast forward a decade or two, and he's right where he's most comfortable; kneading new creations out of items from the past, pouring his creativity into designing and refashioning classic pieces into interesting new looks.
Stephen is just as passionate about the value of the past. He holds court as manager and co-conspirator at Regal. Even cooler than the merch is the fact that James and Stephen get it on so many levels.
Everything's recycled at Regal. Even the tags have been used before.
Browse through the rounders and racks and you'll see tags made of candy containers, pizza boxes, so much more.
And what about the merch?
It's the peace and smiley.
Or maybe you're looking to update your look with something unique from the past.
Lots of stuff from which to pick, nicely categorized by decade.
Lots of hats, too.
But my favorite thing at Regal is way in the back.
It looks kind of afterthoughtish.
And I hope James and Stephen don't get pissed if I intend to replicate it this summer.
The perfect summer complement to my coolio back porch will be the super-cheap and ultra-cool Otter Pop idea.
Here's another angle. It's so refreshing!
There's so much more to be revealed at Regal. I'd simply suggest to drop by, if you're in or around Denver any time soon.
The kings of retro cool are open somewhere around 11:15 most days of the week. Head down Broadway. 1866 S. Broadway, if you want to get specific.
You'll be transported into a portal of cool.
