New York’s most iconic vintage destination, Rue St. Denis – named after Paris’s red light district - is no longer in brick&mortar. For decades, Jean-Paul has single-handedly stocked an enviable collection of carefully curated wardrobe must-haves from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Co-owner Riccardo is a stylist and specializes in finding the perfect looks and proportions for each individual that enters the magic boutique. The owner’s savvy eye for impeccable vintage threads extends to the film industry where they’ve provided wardrobe staples for shows including Saturday Night Live, The Americans, Gotham, The Deuce and The Get Down.

At Rue St.Denis you’ll find highly sought-after styles that are unworn as they’ve been sourced from dead stock of decades past. Clothing, shoes and accessories for men and women include a huge range of men's suits, disco shirts, dress pants, bell bottoms, cocktail dresses, leather jackets and an exemplary collection of women’s and men’s coats.

Vintage Fashion Show featuring Rue St. Denis | New York City

Named after one of the oldest and most lustful streets in Paris, Rue St.Denis first opened on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in 1990, and has since become a landmark of the vintage scene in New York City. Located now in the East Village, we are known for our authentic, unworn vintage clothing for both men and women - ranging from the 1950's to the 1980's with emphasis on 60's and 70's. Every piece in our collection is hand-selected and curated by owner and buyer Jean-Paul, who travels throughout Europe and the US in order to find unique styles and bring them back into the spotlight.

One of our specialties is our large collection of unworn, vintage men's suits - some of which are notable European and American labels. We believe that bringing life back to former styles is a terrific way of satisfying the ongoing hunt for individuality and "the new" in our rapidly transforming culture.
