Praised by Karl Lagerfeld as "the place for inspiration," The Vintage Showroom is a unique collection of men's vintage clothing, revered by collectors, fashion designers, and stylists, who rent out its rare pieces as a source for new designs.

Split into four chapters of Aviation & Motorsports, Tailoring and Dress Uniforms, Utility & Denim, Sportswear & Weatherwear, The Vintage Showroom provides a unique overview of the best pieces from the collection. Featuring everything from a bearskin bomber jacket and fur-lined flying trousers to the original US navy peacoat and waterproofs worn on the British Antarctic Survey, the book is a mine of ideas for designers and stylists.

Lavishly illustrated with specially commissioned photography, showing the clothing details and highlighting the features that make each piece unique, this beautiful volume will be a must-have for designers and fashionistos everywhere.
