Since launching my shop Juno Says Hello, I've had several enquiries about whether I sell vintage clothes for men. Sadly not, nor do I have any plans to... so I thought I should write a little post about where gents can go to kit themselves out properly. The most popular request seems to be for sporting tweeds, but there are plenty of suppliers out there who also sell immaculately tailored suits and beautiful vintage accessories.
Many men seem to have been inspired by programmes like MadMen, for example, but others are simply after a one-off 'look' for an event like Goodwood Revival or the Chap Olympiad.
One of the biggest online shops is Tweedmans Vintage. You can browse their stock by era or garment type, and delivery within the UK is free. New items are uploaded every day and the quality really is very, very good.
David Saxby has a shop specialising in sporting tweeds and formal wear. A selection of their stock is available online and their shop is in Fulham. David also owns Old Hat, which sells vintage clothing for men.
Hornets of Kensington sells an amazing selection of vintage menswear including Savile Row suits and fur coats.
Another London-based vintage men's clothing shop is Thrifty Beatnik, which used to be a store in Victoria but has now moved online.
