The affordable and stylish vintage clothes at Knee Deep vintage boutique in Pilsen are among the hippest in Chicago.
"We like to find clothes that are more fashion forward, stuff that you can wear now,” said co-owner Trent Marinell.
Knee Deep carries garments primarily from the 1940's to the 1980's. You can find anything from an authentic ‘50s getup to pristine ‘70s denim to Yves Saint Laurent menswear at Knee Deep.
Co-owners Trent Marinell and Carlos Lourenco opened Knee Deep in March of 2008 after a year of collecting clothes and furniture from their travels. In January of 2008, they finally chose a space to become the haven for their idea.
The duo renovated the space - entirely themselves - all the while documenting the renovation for the boutique’s MySpace page.
The boutique has become a popular destination for vintage shoppers, and the owners have gained a reputation for having an eye for exciting pieces in a variety of sizes.
Knee Deep’s great buys include:
Men’s shirts ($12-22)
Travel bags ($14-30)
Vintage luggage ($18-24)

The racks of both men's and women's clothing are packed from one end to the other.
But unlike many vintage stores, customers don’t necessarily have to show up in the mood to hunt. The highly professional staff keeps their products well organized. In fact, they know their stock so well they can easily style a chic vintage outfit from their collection.
"Carlos has this insane gift where he can size a girl up and pick out five or ten outfits that all look amazing on her," said Marinell.
Customers come back for the professional service and the ever-changing stock, which Knee Deep seeks out and buys from the public.
In addition to vintage clothes, Knee Deep also carries vintage furniture, accessories, and a variety of journals and handmade jewelry by local artists.
