Open Meeting 2015

Last Wednesday saw the third annual 39 Club open meeting with a record number of prospective new members attending wanting to join the Club.  We also welcomed Silvia Collins, Event Director of Moda Gent to be held February 21st -23rd 2016 at the NEC. 

This year’s open meeting was remarkable achievement as we enter into The 39 Club’s 60th Diamond Anniversary year for 2016.  We feel 2016 will be an excellent, successful and important milestone for The 39 Club.  Watch out for the news of the Special Events to commemorate this significant achievement

Men's Wear - October 1980

Eric Musgrave Honorary member of the 39 Club and Editorial Director of Drapers Record came across this picture of Les Read from Fred Perry and Alan Warren a current member and past Chairman and Hon Secretary from an edition of Mens Wear now Drapers dating back from an edition published 23rd October 1980.

Eric commented “does anyone recognise these two from Men’s Wear of nearly 35 years ago? Glad to see The 39 Club was more important than Versace opening its first London store?”

Eric also commented on Alan’s very fashionable leading edge eyewear!
