Get Truckin’

Following a lead from bridge.town.low.down blogger  Cameron Clowers, I moseyed on over to Truck Stop.  In an old, industrial building next-door to Stein’s Deli, J.R. Fields established his shop.  After a short 5 months in town, Truck Stop is moving along successfully.  Complete with vintage pump signage and bar seating, the store molds gasoline glamour and Southern wear  into a style that Fields calls “Classic Americana.”

The store is 90% vintage, with the remaining 10 going to new western shirts, select tees (from Bandit Brand and Horse & Bird),  kids clothes, and FRYE boots.  J.R.’s Truck Stop can boast the largest collection of true vintage sportswear, including biker jackets, suede blazers, and much more.  Married to the charming owner of Trashy Diva, Fields decided that going to Austin for stylish duds was getting tiresome.  He brought a bit of the Southwest flair to the Crescent City and the traffic flow is a sure sign that New Orleans can’t get enough.

Are you looking for a branded vintage belt or a pearl-snap button down? Look no further.  If you want to take a seat at the bar and have a soda out of an old-fashioned bottle while your woman tries on a holster and an “If You Ain’t Country, You Ain’t Shit” shirt, then this is the place for you!  If this doesn’t sell you, then the moose head smiling over the cash register is sure to change your mind.

  1. Love that place! Featured it twice, once on my blog and once for gonola.com. I need to get back, haven’t been since they opened and I should stock up on some vintage tees.
