On 1/18, Rare Vintage Wear (with the help of few close friends) invaded the 2014 Refresh PGH Winter Shoe Expo with loads of vintage clothing, jerseys, hats, and collectables. The event was a HUGE success; we would like to thank everyone from the Refresh Pittsburgh team for hosting the event and of course, everyone who came out and supported Rare Vintage Wear!

The event boosted 50+ vendors and by the end of the day, over 1,200 Pittsburgh area sneakerheads paraded through the Irish Center sporting their favorite sneakers. Rare Vintage Wear had a birds-eye view of the event from our location on-stage, and let me tell you it was JAM PACKED!

Many customers enjoyed RVW’s large variety of vintage Champion NBA jerseys, along with our vintage Starter and North Face jackets. Our custom Vintage Chicago Blackhawks Starter jacket was the talk of the town, and quickly found a new home along with the extremely popular Charlotte Hornets satin jacket.

All in all, the weekend was a huge success! We met a lot of great people and networked with some other great up-and-coming brands. Take a look at the photo gallery below and look out for future collaborations between Rare Vintage Wear and Refresh PGH!
