About The Naked Man
With a background in Art History and a life-long passion for all things vintage, I began selling antiques and vintage goods in my hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, nearly two decades ago. Before becoming a full time vintage dealer I have worked for the Jackson County, MO Historical Society Archives and have 13 years experience at the Kansas City Public Library where I worked for the Missouri Valley Special Collections Local History Department for part of my employment there. I have also worked for the Kansas City Auction Company where I was able to both share and expand my knowledge of antique and vintage items. After several successful years selling at local antique markets, fairs and auction houses, I decided to share my growing collection with a broader audience and THE NAKED MAN was born!
THE NAKED MAN specializes in classic 20th Century Gentlemen's Fashions and Accessories from the 1920s to the 1980s. These vintage pieces were made to last with craftsmanship that is too often lacking in today's mass manufacturing. Our biggest thrill is in rescuing and finding the perfect home for these quality vintage pieces.
We scour estate sales, flea markets and resale shops throughout the Midwest, hunting high and low to bring to our shop a handpicked collection of vintage menswear and accessories that reflect our customers' style and encompass today's trends. We are fortunate to be based in a part of the country where vintage goods are abundant and affordable, allowing us to offer our vintage items at prices accessible to all vintage collectors.
THE NAKED MAN also provides vintage clothing, costumes and props for theater, film and television productions. Most recently our vintage items have been seen in Amazon Studios' MODERN LOVE, the Fox television show GOTHAM, Amazon Studios' THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, in THE GET DOWN (Netflix Series), Amazon’s THE INTERESTINGS, the 20th Century Fox television production ROSEWOOD, in TELEMUNDO Studio productions, in Why Not Productions' Film LEGEND OF BLACK SNAKE, the Showtime Series MASTERS OF SEX, the CBS TV Series VEGAS and in the Will Ferrell film ANCHORMAN 2: The Legend Continues!
Whether you are a costume designer or an individual with an appreciation for classic style and the desire to wear something totally unique for a special occasion or any day, THE NAKED MAN has something for everyone! Our diverse range of vintage menswear and accessories enables anyone to create an effortlessly stylish and unique look at an affordable price whether your style is rockabilly, hipster, preppy, biker, mod, boho or an eclectic mix of them all!
