With their warehouse and business based in Indianapolis, husband and wife team Christie and Bob Berry sell ready-to-wear clothing for men, women and children exclusively online, featuring retro brands like Stop Staring!, Steady, Bobby Chan and more. At Daddy O’s you can grab creepers to jump around in, a Chino jacket to help you roll right and a skin-tight, 1950s style cocktail dress stop the show in, all in one online visit.

In some ways, Daddy O’s 1950s-style shop owes its existence to the 1970s, when co-owner Bob Berry was a huge fan of the rock group Kiss. He collected a large amount of Kiss toys and memorabilia and when the band reunited briefly in 1995 he pulled it all out and sold each and every piece at a booth in an antiques show.

Inspired by this success, Christy and Bob started to root out and sell all their vintage and collectible items, including their vintage 1950s clothing. They eventually ran out of genuine vintage items, but realized that their loyal customers were happy to buy retro-style and vintage-inspired clothing, no matter when it had actually been made, as long as it looked authentic and was of high quality.

By 2001 they had begun to receive a lot of media attention, and while today they can boast ofcelebrities like Sarah Silverman wearing their clothing and of supplying costumes for the television show Smallville, they are still a small family business and Bob Berry himself still answers the Daddy O’s toll-free order line.

Daddy O’s accepts MasterCard, Visa and American Express payments either online or over the phone. They ship worldwide, with shipping costs and shipping time varying with the weight of the order, the delivery location and the preference of the customer – Whoopi Goldberg will often order 14 shirts at once to be shipped overnight.

They accept returns and exchanges on non-custom, unworn items with tags still on and intact in bag within 30 days of the sale date, but charge a 15% restock fee for any returns that are un-bagged or without tags.

As one of 10 children of Mexican immigrants, Alicia started sewing her own clothes at age 16 to save cash. She turned her hand me downs into original outfits, and dressed up differently every day, striving to stand apart from the cookie-cutter punk rock scene she was surrounded by.

She got tons of attention, negative and positive, so she one day wrote the words ’Stop Staring!’ in black marker on the back of a skirt made out of a shower curtain and her brand name was formed. As a student at CalState Fullerton Alicia was a big part of the music scene, hanging out with No Doubt and Sublime in their early days.

When she heard The Cramps were playing at the Hootenanny Rockabilly Festival, she set up a booth to sell her dresses and was an instant hit. Soon her fun sewing ‘hobby’ had turned into such a profitable business that her accounting teachers encouraged her to drop out of school to pursue fashion design full time, which she did with relish. As her business expanded, so did her figure, which is why Stop Staring!

Clothing’s sizes go all the way up to 26. As she became more voluptuous, Alicia honed her skills in custom-tailoring clothes to show off feminine curves, flatten bellies and flatter all sizes. She works hard to make sure that all her designs have classic fit, timeless style and flawless construction so anyone who wears them will feel confident and empowered.

Several miles away from Spanx, their retro-styled Vargas long line girdle shapes exquisitely, does double duty as a garter with six metal straps and is deliciously decorated with large black satin bows. At £50.00, their Cherie Teddy in Peach is high-quality; all satin and lace, in no way innocent yet many leagues distant from trashy. All of their items and collections exude a gritty authenticity with a hint of danger while remaining sensuous, glamorous and slightly intellectual, like a combination of Mata Hari, Grace Kelly and Bettie Page plus a little something extra to make them completely unique.
