The Vintage Tack Room is a British business specialising in vintage hunting clothes and accessories.
We focus on sourcing beautiful vintage hunting clothes from top British and Irish tailors, boot makers and craftspeople. We also buy and sell high quality secondhand hunting clothes and offer a selected range of new hunting and show attire from brands like Alexander James, Mears, Caldene, Hamilton Hats and Regent.
If you wear or use it on the hunting field, it's likely we sell it. We often also outfit show riders looking for that special 'one off' coat, a handmade show cap, vintage bowler, boots or accessories like showing canes and whips.
If you can't find what you're looking for online do get in touch with us using firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01403 700 953 and we'll try and find it for you - no obligation.
Visit by appointment
We are predominantly an online business but we're always delighted to have customers visit but you will need to make a specific appointment.
We can be flexible on days and timing whether weekdays, weekends, public holidays or evenings after work...we'll just try to find a time that suits both parties.
We accept credit cards if you want to shop in person.
Vintage clothing is not only beautifully made, and made to last, but also offers incredible value for money when compared to the cost of bespoke clothes or boots today. Vintage tailoring also tends to last the fashion test of time. This is classic tailoring at its best and, as a result, it lasts the test of time. A beautiful vintage tweed or hunt coat from the 1960s will fit in as much today as it did in the 60s, and will look as stylish in another 30 year's time.
You cannot beat the fabric, cut and finish of beautiful British bespoke tailoring - you just need to find the piece that fits you.
But don't forget, everything vintage was once new. There will be new lines we select for our store which we think will be the quality vintage pieces of the future.
Shows and Events
We are always at the Festival of Hunting at Peterborough, in July; Honiton Hound Show in August; and we expect to be at Ardingly in June 2018.
A bit about us
Based in West Sussex we are a husband and wife team - Simon and Katherine. We bought The Vintage Tack Room in 2016 having been customers of this wonderful business since its earliest days. We hunt with the Chiddingfold, Leconfield and Cowdray and, where we can, like to road-test the clothes and equipment we sell.
We are passionate about the countryside - both in Britain and Australia, where Katherine is from. When not working or hunting - or rounding up small children - we enjoy shooting, walking, camping and wild swimming.
