Hoping to sway you from thinking "old-school fashion" means letterman jackets from the University of Bologna (founded 1088!), R11's a just-opened shop of vintage wears run by retro fashionista Nova Hudson, who's surrounded a serious selection of threads with classy furnishings like a putting green, antique clock radios, and theater chairs in front of a flatscreen where you can play Xbox games like Call of Duty and Madden, whose normal duty is to call for pizzas.
Hand-picked items from brands of yesteryear include leather and corduroy jackets from Campus, London Fog trenches, '70s-esque ties from Saks and Alderman Reed, tees (if you assumed one’s of an astronaut playing guitar, you would be very correct), comfy sweaters by a brand called Alpaca, and funky-patterned button-downs from French Connection and Norris, although it’s pretty crazy to think someone Chucked that.
There're also lots of WWII-era trousers and suit jackets sourced from a recent auction in Alpharetta, and if you wanna get really unique, you can pick something and have Nova cut it up and repurpose it into a vest, which she's currently doing with a mink coat for Aurum/Vanquish designer Michael Habachy, who will not appreciate being jokingly grilled about wearing it.
Hit tonight's "Be Heard" art event to be heard hearing live acoustic, pose for photo shoots, drink gratis Beaujolais Nouveau (FYI: Nova's also a sommelier), and take part in an auction (benefiting Georgia Artists with Disabilities, Art on the Beltline & others) of graffiti’d stuff like a piano and a snowboard, also a popular wintertime game at Bologna, where you try to cover a board in snow, before dying from the plague.
