About Us

Retro Star was created in 2007 by John Fried, ex-owner of cult shop Fans, which was located in Soho, London.

In the beginning, Retro Star’s stock was stored in John's attic, packed at the kitchen table and lugged up to the local sub-post office in a sack, annoying any locals unfortunate enough to be in the queue behind him.

Soon, the table was outgrown and the post office queue were getting more impatient so premises were found nearby and a postal collection set up.

Fast forward two years, stock and staff numbers were increasing, so once again Retro Star was on the move.

We are presently located just off the North Circular Road, which is great for both deliveries and Royal Mail and courier services.

Our vision from the birth of Retro Star has always been to stock clothing influenced by British youth culture and music, from the fifties Teddy boys in their creeper shoes to Mods, Punks, Casuals and Soul Boys.

We are constantly looking for new cult items to add to our roster, so if you have any ideas, shoot us an email (sales@retrostarlondon.co.uk).

We strive to give good service, so as the old saying (that we made up) goes ‘If you are happy with us tell your friends, but if you are unhappy, tell us so we can attempt to put it right’.
