REMEMBERING, 8 April 2021: These are very sad news


After 10 years at 14 Earlham Street, we are very sad to announce the permanent closure of our retail store.


With our current lease ending this month, we have taken the difficult decision not to reopen on the 12th of April or extend our time at the property with a new lease.

Our main Showroom at Buspace Studios remains open for appointments as usual. For details, please contact


The Vintage Showroom Ltd was formed in 2007 to house an ever growing archive of vintage showroom and accessories collected by co-founders Douglas Gunn and Roy Luckett. The Vintage Showroom has become one of the leading resources for vintage menswear in the UK, with the archive covering the early mid 20th century and specialising in international work, military and sports clothing, classic English tailoring and country wear. In September 2012 a selection of the archive was published in the title ‘Vintage Menswear – A Collection From The Vintage Showroom’ for Laurence King publishing and “The Vintage Showroom – An Archive of Menswear” followed in December 2015.

The business and collection is divided into two parts – an appointment only showroom situated near London’s Notting Hill and a retail outlet, with basement showroom, located on Earlham Street in Covent Garden’ Seven Dials. The showroom and studio resources are offered by appointment only and serve to inspire design teams and stylists. The collection is available to purchase or hire and the studio offers a number of bespoke services to clients for creative and concept consultation. The shop, in Covent Garden, has quietly integrated itself into Seven Dials proudly occupying the former ironmongery F.W. Collins & Sons.
