DD172 is the name of hip-hop mogul Damon Dash’s New York company, which includes a record label, magazine and now this vintage clothing store. Creative directors David Chang and David Barnett run the shop and travel out of state to source classic pre-used pieces from American and heritage brands. Enter the space to find high white walls lined with old state flags. Women’s racks on the right-hand side showcase pieces like an ’80s Karl Lagerfeld blouse ($60) and a cropped Aztec-print jacket ($100). The men’s offerings, on the left side, feature an array of rare Pendleton button-up shirts ($55–$75) and a military-issued camo jacket ($40). Large tables in the center hold ladies’ denim cutoffs ($40), assorted scarves ($15) and a selection of snap-back and trucker hats ($25–$40).
