The Vintage Showroom™ was formed in 2007 by long time collectors and dealers Roy Luckett and Doug Gunn. The appointment-only showroom in Buspace Studios, near Portobello Road in West London, remains one of the leading resources for vintage menswear globally with an extensive, curated archive that continues to develop and grow.
In September 2012 a selection of the collection was presented in the award-winning title ‘Vintage Menswear – A Collection from The Vintage Showroom’, published by Laurence King Publishing. The second title, 'The Vintage Showroom – An Archive of Menswear' followed in December 2015. Both books along with other publications from the company can be found here.

About the Shop
The Vintage Showroom Earlham Street store operated from May 2009 to April 2021. The Store was located at 14 Earlham Street, Seven Dials, an area rich in history where we soon established ourselves as a much-loved London institution. Though we were sad to leave the property we look forward to future opportunities which we will be announced in due course.
14 Earlham Street was formerly FW Collins & Sons Ironmongers, a much-loved London institution since 1835. F.W.Collins™ is now the name of our in-house clothing line, and the legacy and association with the company will continue.
