Cruising down La Brea up to Jet Rag I was surprised to see that the façade is fashioned with A-bomb style pillars tinted with rust that give the impression of a bomb shelter, an unexpected but unsurprising choice of décor for one of Los Angeles’ most renowned vintage and used clothing establishments. Upon entering the Misfits “Saturday Night” rocks out, to give a perfect feel for the particular collection of clothing that this place carries. Having a great selection of men’s and women’s clothing this place has a 70’s and 80’s heavy collection of everything from rock tee shirts and cowboy boots, gummy sack peasant dresses to the flower child blankets that may have covered lawns during the Allman Brothers concert and SO many vintage swim suits and lingerie. By far the most extensive collection of vintage under garments, leather jackets, high waisted skinny jeans and strippers 4” stillettos I’ve seen in my experience as a vintage shopper. The selection is vast and price on everything is right give yourself at least three hours in this place you never know what you can find in here. Three and a half hours later and four trips to the fitting rooms my best friend and I left with all the finds to compliment this coming fall and winter from party dresses fit for a Cinespace Tuesday, round toed pumps for shopping on Melrose and tee’s to grab some chicken and waffles at Rasco’s, your Los Angeles experience is not complete with out a visit to Jet Rag.
