The only way to look like Steve McQueen, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or one of the Run DMC boys is to mix current culture with the fashion trends that captivated the 1980s and ’90s. To be a collector of an era that defines fashion.
Some call many of these collectors hipsters: a subculture of men and women who value independent thinking, counter-culture and appreciation for the arts. Above all they crave a platform for freedom of creative expression. This expression is noticed in the way they walk, the witty ways they talk and the cool clothes they wear.
“Life is too short to wear boring [stuff],” laughs Joseph Abramoff, co-owner of Allergic to Cubicles, 335 Chandler St., which debuted as a retail location earlier this year.
The vintage retail store is home to a diverse level of fashion wants and needs. If you’re looking for the soft texture of 50/50 T-shirts that reigned in the ’70s or the iconic Pat the Patriot satin throwback Starter jacket that dominated the high school hallways of the early ‘90s, then Allergic to Cubicles is the place to spend countless hours rummaging through classic fashion gems.
