Apparel (Men)


The Armoury was started in Hong Kong by three men who craved “clothing with substance”—timeless but not fusty, and made to last. Indeed, many of the brands on offer have been around for a century, or longer. You might find Glenroyal briefcases; Rimowa luggage; leather goods by Ettinger, K.T. Lewiston Bros., and TMBH; ties by Drake’s; Sozzi Calze ties and socks; Ascot Chang shirts; and Saint Crispin’s handmade shoes. And the Armoury has a few of its own products, including Japanese-denim jeans made in Hong Kong and the Armoury model suit and jacket, a collaboration with Ring Jacket of Osaka. (Made to measure and bespoke clothing are also available. he store will regularly fly in vendors to do fittings and advise on styles and materials.) The space is handsome in a masculine way—walnut shelves, exposed brick—without the hyperstyling of, say, J. Crew’s Tribeca outposts. Downstairs has a VIP suite, for those of you who prefer total privacy.
