The Egg and Butter Name
In the 1930’s on the heels of prohibition a code name was coined for the men who were running things. They were called the Butter and Egg Men. These men had the bank rolls and savvy to call the shots in the toughest of environments.

Modern era men's clubs were originally founded in England in the 1800's with early versions going back even further. They started as something that focused on men socializing in the back rooms of their haberdasheries, barber shops, pubs and other businesses.
The goal was simple….. it was a place where men could go after a very long work day and just be men. They were rooted in a sense of camaraderie between men that worked hard to help their families get ahead.
Eventually however, most of these clubs became very exclusionary…. some of them took on political agendas while others turned into philanthropic organizations….but most of them lost their identity as clubs that simply celebrated the hard working man.
The Egg and Butter Club is a fraternity of hard working men from different walks of life who take the time to treat themselves to the finer things on occasion.
We are a collective of men at the top of our respective games who gather formally and informally numerous times a year to rub elbows, share endeavors, and enjoy life.
We will be inviting key “WHO CED” customers, retailers and friends to join us at high and low profile events throughout the year to share in our success and experience the Egg & Butter lifestyle first hand. So be sure to join the Egg & Butter Club and you may find yourself at one of our exclusive events.
