The London Club

I don’t care to belong to any club that would have me as a member. Groucho Marx

vintage pieces capturing the essence of proper

British style (think hats, bow-ties & blazers).

{oldyarns} has The London Club collection of reclaimed vintage and linen bags

sourced from vintage & reclaimed materials, so nothing here is perfect.

we believe this only enhances the beauty of our pieces,

highlighting their past stories & travels.

all {oldyarns} pieces are handmade or hand selected by {oldyarns}

each object is special, telling an almost forgotten story

Gentleman’s Clubs

There are some 25 traditional London gentlemen’s clubs of particular note, from the Athenaeum to White’s, included in the list of London’s gentlemen’s clubs. A gentlemen’s club is a members-only private club of a type originally set up by and for English upper classmen in the eighteenth century, and popularised by English upper-middle class men and women in the late nineteenth century. Today, some are more open about the gender and social status of members.
