Stoke Newington vintage: Ribbons & Taylor
Ribbons & Taylor on Stoke Newington’s Church Street stocks a good selection of mens and womens vintage fashion from the Fifties to the Eighties.
The emphasis is definitely on the later decades and you do have to rummage if you are after anything genuinely Fifties.
What makes this shop well worth a trip is the excellent prices: Seventies dresses go for £25, denim shorts are are mere £10 and there are plenty of Eighties pumps for under £15 to choose from. If you’re happy to customise and rework your vintage then this is the place for you – Seventies maxi dresses beg to be shortened and old T-shirts can easily be brought up to date with a few scissor snips.
The menswear section also hides some real gems such as Sixties waistcoats and Fifties leather jackets, again at excellent prices.
