The Armoury is coming


I have long been a fan of The Armoury. And now they are crossing the ocean and bringing their concept to a bricks and mortar location in NYC: 168 Duane St, Tribeca

For those unaware of who or what The Armoury is, it is a Hong Kong-based classic menswear retailer, offering artisanal products from around the world that fit into an “International Classic” style. Every season, they strive to showcase a diverse array of products as well as the people behind them: solitary craftsmen, small family businesses, and privately owned companies with limited annual production. Covering all categories of menswear from tailored clothing to accessories, The Armoury is a one-stop shop where a man can be completely outfitted. And yes there are many NYC stores that go after similar aesthetics but what The Armoury thrives at is their constant stream of new trunk shows featuring new luxe brands they have discovered. PS I am a big fan of their custom made glasses from Nackymade.

Soft Launch December 10th, 2013

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
