Christoph Pfandler opened Polyklamott – located on Hofmühlgasse, just a few steps from the U4 Pilgramgasse subway stop – out of a love for fashion, and vintage clothing in particular. According to Pfandler, the area between Gumpendorferstrasse and Wienzeile was where much of the fashion scene was concentrated when he first opened the store in 2000. Today the store’s customers range from local residents to second hand fashion lovers from around the world. What sets Polyklamott apart from other vintage shops is the meticulous curation, which is carried out by the owner himself. His passion for vintage clothing takes him throughout Europe – from Holland to Hungary – on the hunt for suitable items for the store. Polyklamott’s collection is ever expanding and its inventory turns over frequently, insuring that you will find many new pieces on each visit. Pfandler is especially proud of his large collection of “new old stock” – unused stock from defunct stores from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.Show lessRead more
