While already a member of the New Sheridan Club, Lord Bassington-Bassington is currently investigating The Handlebar Club.
This august society, founded in 1947, demands that its member possess "a hirsute appendage of the upper lip, with graspable extremities". So surely the stately whiskers of a Basset Hound qualifies for membership?
In fact, Basset Hounds are so naturally elegant that even Basset ladies (such as the lovely Lucy from Boston seen above) would qualify for membership in the Handlebar Club!
And like any club worth being in, The Handlebar Club has a lovely selection of ties and cufflinks.
