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.

THE SHOP – EARLHAM STREET, COVENT GARDEN.
The Vintage Showroom opened the doors to our first stand alone retail store in May 2009. Located at 14 Earlham Street, Seven Dials an area and shop both rich in history that we felt was perfect for our first shop front. Formerly FW Collins & Sons Ironmongers, a much loved London institution. This shop had been a hardware store since 1835. We were sorry to see it go, but happy to take it on and try and do something cool with the space.
