Round Two Expands its Vintage Footprint in Hell Square

Posted on: July 3rd, 2019 at 5:04 am by

Almost two years after landing on Stanton Street in Hell Square, vintage emporium Round Two doubled its reach. The business opened another store around the corner on Ludlow.

The new shop, dubbed Vintage by Round Two, debuted last week at 138 Ludlow with much fanfare, and the requisite queue of eager shoppers. (Plus, hundreds of Instagram posts in a span of days.) Here, you’ll find more of the same – vintage tees and other apparel at eye-popping prices – but with less emphasis on sneakers.

Guess we should’ve kept our collection of Hypercolor and Big Johnson shirts from 1990.

Vintage by Round Two takes over from the Dana Foley boutique, which vacated the space shortly after landlord Michael Shah acquired the building.

Founded in Virginia by Sean Wotherspoon, Chris Russow, and Luke Fraser, Round Two placates fiends seeking either vintage clothing (e.g. old school Supreme, band shirts) or the rarest of kicks. Customers can buy, sell, or trade their gear. Apparently, the store amassed a local celebrity following in Los Angeles, and has done the same in the two years since opening on the Lower East Side .
