Time Out NY European collectors and NYU kids raid this 13-year-old shop for colorful Izod sweaters, combat boots and letter jackets with wallet-friendly price tags. But what they might not know is that you can rent some of the pricier, hard-to-find vintage at a fraction of the retail cost. Owner Richard Colligan specializes in rare band tees from L.A. (New Order, $250; the Clash, $200; Lords of the New Church, $150), and carries a handsome selection of men's footwear (Draper-era Florsheim wingtips for $250). Rent for a week and you'll pay 25 percent of the full price, pay 50 percent for two weeks, and so forth.
