With festival season well underway, have you got all your festival fits sorted? With the likes of Parklife, Wireless and Glastonbury already ticked off the list, there’s still some big ones coming up to buy your vintage festival fits for. 

Why Has Vintage Become Popular at Festivals?

We’ve seen vintage clothing soar in popularity in general but now we’ve seen the rise of vintage clothing amongst festival goers.

Festival trends have shifted dramatically throughout the decades, from the ‘hippie’ style clothing of the 60s to the rock style clothing of the 90s to now; colourful & vibrant vintage clothing. 

The Unique Factor


It’s no secret that a lot of festival goers want to stand out from the crowd and wear clothes different from everyone else. With vintage clothing, you can do just that. At Poorboy, the majority of our vintage clothing has been around for 20 years or longer so the chances of you turning up in the same outfit as someone else is slim to none, as there will be a limited amount of the same item in circulation.

Not only will you be wearing a unique piece of clothing age wise, it will also be unique style wise. Vintage clothing will always have its own unique style, whether that be patterns, colours or everything in between, you can almost always tell when something is vintage — you can look fashionable and make a statement. 

Choosing the Perfect Outfit

Here at Poorboy, we have a large range of vintage clothing pieces both instore and online; from men’s vintage football shirts to women’s vintage dresses. As well as our range of vintage clothing, we also have a full range of accessories, bags and jackets that are perfect to accompany any festival outfit.
