About Chuck’s Vintage:

Chuck’s Vintage founder​, ​Madeline Cammarata, was always about making people smile through clothing. Honoring her legacy with gifts from this timeless store will stretch the joy on with denim lovers in your life. Even those who like a gift that is not just your everyday department store ordinary will fall in love with a present from here.

In 2006, Madeline started Chuck’s Vintage, which overnight became a true American original. Her abundant collection became treasured wear for celebrities and business elites from Steve Jobs to ​famous musicians such as Dolly Parton, Robert Plant, Morrisey and more. From the famous to just pure classic style lovers, they have all at one point crossed the threshold of Chuck’s Vintage in the California hotspot shop​ -​ where even once a world-renown​ed​ denim archivist saw fit to entrust Madeline with millions of dollars’ worth of collectible denim that she ​proudly sold.

The new store’s ​showcase of vintage denim that must be seen to be believed. The blue jeans in the Upper East Side location​ will​ range from Strongholds found in the California Gold Rush mines to World War II-Era Levi’s, Lees, and Wranglers, as well as 1960’s ladies high-waisted and groovy deadstock Levi’s bells. Chuck’s ​will ​also showcase the founder’s sampling of vintage American workwear: rugged military and work boots, buttery leather bomber jackets, and soft, perfectly worn-in vintage 70’s rock tees. Classic American Cool.
