Here are our picks
Best Leeds, 22-24 New Market St, Leeds , Yorkshire, LS1 6DG - Visit now
Best is one of the biggest vintage shops in Leeds. It offers a large selection of styles for Men, Women and Unisex. Since opening in Leeds in 2007 Best has branched out to Newcastle and Liverpool, proving that they are a Northern fashion house to take note of.
Pop Boutique Leeds, 12-14 Central Rd, Leeds, LS1 6DE - Visit now
Another semi-independent, semi-chain vintage shop is the bright and cheerful Pop Boutique, crammed to the gills with cute and quirky clothes, shoes and the odd bit of kitsch. It even has its own retro fashion range, subverting the very concept of ‘vintage’ itself. Snazzy.
Ryan Vintage, 13 Duncan St, Leeds, LS1 6DQ - Visit now
Ryan Vintage is like some kind of old-school bazaar, with skirts, shirts and trousers all piled high as far as the eye can see. If you’re looking for something unique (and maybe even worn by someone now dead, excitingly), you’ll be sure to find it here.
Johnsons Of Leeds, 2, Vulcan Foundry, Haigh Park Rd, Leeds, LS10 1RT - Visit now
Always had a hankering for that army life, but couldn’t be bothered with the whole million press-ups-a-day lifestyle? Don’t worry, this huge army surplus store can give you that military look minus all the sweat and hard-work. They’ve clothed everyone from Robson & Jerome to the Chippendales and the cast of Emmerdale.
