Pano Thumbnail Proletariat
It's pretty safe to say that when The Revolution comes it will not come from Harvard Square, but don't let that discourage you from visiting Proletariat anyway. The counter-culture loving store has a closed fist on it's logo, a Soviet flag on the wall and cool clothing and accessories everywhere you look. The T-shirt selection (the hallmark by which all vintage stores must be judged) is outstanding: wacky, colorful, sarcastic, eclectic. There are also mod dresses, tracksuit jackets, old Chicago Bears sweaters, and canvas bags. Then there are the one-off items one of which you will invariably fall in love with and realize you will not be able to live without. These could be a watch made of recycled ties, or a vintage movie poster, maybe a honkin' Texas belt buckle. Also, look out for their own line of clever antiestablishmentarian T-shirts and a full line of grafitti spray cans and markers. Those huge vintage stores like to impress you with their 10,000 pieces of garbage that take 3 hours to riffle through. Proletariat keeps its selection more limited, but fresh, funky and generally fabulous. Now that's a revolution.

I dig the used screens decorating the counter space. Very cool work!

This place rocks! They make their own line of shirts and stand behind their work. If you are in Harvard Square you definitely need to check out Proletariat!
