Even more powerful than the Mary Meyer/Beacon’s Closet alliance is the lone thrift shop enterprise that is M Train Classique. After one of their most recent and prized ventures, Vice Versa, closed amid the scandal of being pilfered from clothing drops, M Train Classique has bounced back in a big way.
“We’re going straight up deluxe,” commented the store’s manager, Marion De Beauvoirsade, a renowned collector of all things vintage, with a specialty in Louis Vuitton and Chanel. “Our location on Jefferson Street and Central Avenue is going to blow people away with its opulence.”
With every piece individually curated by one of the three employees (all with fashion design degrees from Parsons), there is nothing but the best–the absolute oldest, most expensive pieces–to choose from.

Plus, you’ll want to enjoy these items while you can, before another shutdown by the Williamsburg/Bushwick Vintage Verification Task Force.
