Passport Vintage is one of Austin’s newest vintage shops. Passport Vintage was started by Maria Oliveira and Ryan Lerma in Chicago. The duo currently runs the first Passport Vintage storefront located in the East side of Austin on 5th street. The shop originated as an Etsy shop in 2014 and, with their now existing storefront, still has hundreds of unique items available on their Etsy site. Passport Vintage proudly ships worldwide and boasts over 3,000 sales on their Etsy account.
Passport Vintage is known for their highly focused collection that specializes in vintage denim with modern fits and select hard-to-find vintage tees. This shop caters to both women and men of different shapes and sizes- most pieces are chosen to be categorized as unisex. Passport Vintage has been highly praised for their curation of vintage Levi’s, Wranglers and beloved denim from the 70s, 80s and 90s. The shop has been featured in NY Magazine’s “The Cut” and in various national and local publications. Passport Vintage’s selection offers a wide range of sizes in their signature denim styles. Their goal is to ensure that you will find several pairs of jeans that match your dream fit leaving you with a tough decision of which ones to take home with you.
Along with their vintage jeans, Passport Vintage also offers a varied selection of vintage denim jackets. The women’s collection features basic tops, including knits and silk, as well as vintage pants. Although sometimes included in the collection, there is less of a focus on vintage dresses and skirts. The shop’s cut off denim shorts are perfect for Austin’s hot summers wither you’re hanging out around downtown or spending the afternoon by the lake.
The men’s vintage collection focuses on vintage tees from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. If you’re searching for the Bart Simpson tee of your dreams or a 90s Nike windbreaker, they have you covered. Also featured in this collection is a variety of men’s vintage jeans to complete your classic look.
Passport Vintage recently launched their very own t-shirt line sold online and in the storefront. The tees are all screen printed onto perfectly worn vintage tees and, more recently, sweatshirts. The tees come in a wide variety of colors and sizes to cater to many shapes and styles. A new shoe line has also made its way into Passport Vintage featuring a leather and wood mule with locally and sustainably sourced materials. This line also includes a jelly flat and a short heeled jelly shoe. All shoes come in different color ways to complement your favorite vintage jeans.
