Dirty Harry was inspired by a visit to Canal Jeans in New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1980s. The shop offered a wide variety of new, used, retro, vintage, U.S. military, workwear and footwear. It was an alternative shopping heaven with prices to match. Sadly there is no longer a Canal Jeans in NYC, but we believe Dirty Harry Ltd in Brighton, England has kept its tradition alive. We have been established for 20 years, starting with market stalls in Camden and Greenwich, finally ending up in our home store in Brighton. During that time, we have seen many popular vintage shops and markets go under the hammer. Where there were once vibrant and quirky markets in Camden, Greenwich, Portabello, and Kings Road, there are now only shells left behind as a result of big business and local authorities never ending squeeze for more revenue. Fortunately, Brighton has bucked that trend. In the North Laines and particularly on Sydney Street there are at least 15 vintage / retro / rework shops. When we arrived there was only one other shop, so we like to think we have helped contribute to the areas vibrancy and success. Dirty Harry sells vintage and new clothing, footwear and accessories, US military, Americana, mod, skinhead, leathers` workwear, women’s new and vintage, tshirts, and of course second hand 501’s. Currently, we have started a new range of our own manufactured goods. Goods are made in the UK as much as possible. So, look for our labels including Dirty Harry LTD, King Skin and Sir Harry Palmer alongside our other stock. We hope you enjoy our new venture into online shopping.
