La Pistola

If you happen to be out and about in Minneapolis with some time to kill and a penchant for vintage, check out Tatters tattersvintageclothing.com at the intersection of Lake and Lyndale just east of Uptown.
About a 1/4 of the store dedicated to denim with a great selection of Levi's in their respective styles and washes. Racks and racks of vintage-y graphic tees and collection worthy Woolrich and Pendleton.
My last visit there I found a tasty pair of red/brown, pebble grain wing tips along with a
"nicely-broken-in" pair of 2-tone Tony Lama's.
Haul your pics up to the ancient glass counter and scour the vintage eye wear, low-brow playing cards, stickers, patches and pins. Then train your eyes toward the ceiling and you'll see where they hang all the ultra choice pieces that the buyers cherry picked for display.
BEWARE: It's a difficult store to walk out of without a purchase.
It be one of my favorites.

Did I mention Levi's?
