My Uniform: Vintage Dealer Sean Crowley

posted 2019 Oct by

Among menswear insiders, Crowley Vintage is known as an Aladdin’s Cave of vintage finds. The contents of the shop—classic Anglo-American clothing from the last century—are a bit at odds with the store’s surroundings in Gowanus, an industrial section of Brooklyn better known for body shops than boutiques. Its proprietor, Sean Crowley, is a bit of a curiosity himself—a former menswear designer at Ralph Lauren, who now scours the globe in search of the perfect flannel chore jacket or awning-striped shirt from once-great (and now-forgotten) haberdashers.
