Everything old is new again at Damon Dash’s latest business venture, Local 172 Trading Post, in New York.

Dash's new store will share a home with a growing number of other businesses that pack his DD172 space in Tribeca, including an art gallery and recording studio. The clothing leg of the umbrella organization boasts “hand-picked, premium vintage clothing” for men and women with items from brands such as Ralph Lauren, Pendleton, L.L. Bean and Woolrich.

Local 172 will open March 26 with an event from noon to 10 p.m. that lets shoppers peruse the offerings, enjoy day drinks and hear music spun by SkiBeatz, DJ Edan and DJ Ghostdad.
