Guide to vintage shopping

Melbourne is stuffed with pre-loved fashion of every era, but do you know where to look? We asked locals with five very different styles to point us in the right direction

Derby dame

Whether you’re into roller derby or not, you might appreciate the rockabilly pin-up look that many of the players sport. But where do they get primped and preened?

Eighties glam

Dress with excess and decadence by raiding these stores for their most daring stock.

Style outlaw

If your look is completely indefinable, you probably enjoy carpet-bombing your way throughop shops and secondhand stores. But make sure you discover these ones…

Old fashioned

Whether you’re a neo-craftsman in leather aprons and sturdy 1800s-style workwear, or a dapper chap after some traditional grooming (and a nice monacle), there’s a gentleman’s emporium for you.

Seventies folkies

If full-blown ’70s fever frightens you, a low-key look is perfect for watching bands with beards.
