As 2018 comes to a close, Document is asking friends and contributors what items they have their eye on, and what their hopes are for the year ahead. First up is Collin James Weber and Brandon Veloria Giordano who took a break from their vintage haven, James Veloria, to holiday shop with us. Located under the Manhattan Bridge, this Chinatown shop has found its strides as the go to gem for vintage treasures. Since opening their doors, they have collaborated with Opening Ceremony to bring collections of archived Miu Miu, Prada, and Jean Paul Gautier to the masses. They most recently have taken claim of the storefront next to theirs in an expansion currently displaying a wide array of iconic pieces from Tom Ford’s past.
