Maeven Online Vintage Shop

Old-school clothes at a new-school store


It’s only July and once-crisp outfits already look dreary (nothing like sweat stains and premature fall stock to ruin summer swagger).

Look sharp: Maeven, a new Greenpoint-based vintage online boutique from former gallery director Amy Yee has the goods (and prices) to defunk any slump.

The longtime vintage clothing and accessories collector/restorer scours the country for wardrobe staples and pieces with standout materials, textures, colors, or construction.

Navigate by traditional category, price, size, or season. No-frills (though there might be fringe) model shots let you see all angles; modern size estimates, details, and measurements clear up confusion.

Scoop LBDs, cowboy boots, high-waisted skirts, leather shorts, and summer-weight knits. We’re sold on a turquoise-striped corset dress and the rad outerwear section.

Ship or arrange an in-person try-on/pickup (the studio is in the original No. 2 pencil factory). Yee is well versed on whether alterations are possible and accepts returns if something doesn’t fit.

No questions. No sweat.
