Convenience is key for a city guy. Internet shopping is all very well for slacks and Macs, but for the perfect accessory or a full bespoke suit, most movers, moguls and shakers agree: You gotta be there. Look no further than The Armoury.
The menswear mecca, first started in Hong Kong in 2010, has now become a lynchpin of luxury tailored menswear and surprisingly cool accessories in NYC. Creators Alan See, Ethan Newton and Mark Cho are always on the lookout for uncommon treasures to suit their discerning clientele. In the case of Nackymade eyewear, a dinosaur’s mouth will chomp at your ear lobe, while a Drake’s 50-ounce silk tie has a dragon peaking from the back blade. The one common thread in all of this store’s stock? A taste for the finer things in life, intuitive to the owners and brought to life on the floor.
