The Armoury NYC at 168 Duane St - Opening December 10th

To our dear customers, our friends, and aficionados of classic menswear everywhere:

We are pleased to announce that The Armoury is expanding beyond Hong Kong and opening our first North American location in TriBeCa, New York City.

The store will be soft launching on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013. We will be providing the same shopping experience enjoyed by our Hong Kong customers: stocking products from the same fine makers, taking custom orders for those we represent, and bringing our stable of outstanding craftsmen from around the world to New York for regular trunk shows.

In conjunction with our soft opening, we will be holding our first two trunk shows this December.

 

During this soft launch period, we will be fully operational, though there may be the occasional hammering as we put the finishing touches on our shop. We request your patience during this exciting period of growth for our company.

For those unaware of who we are or what we do, The Armoury is a Hong Kong-based classic menswear retailer, offering artisanal products from around the world that fit into our “International Classic” style. Every season, we 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, we aim to be a one-stop shop where a man can be completely outfitted. In addition to our ready-to-wear selection, we offer made-to-measure and bespoke services from a thoughtful selection of vendors, and regularly fly in artisans from their home countries to work directly with customers and conduct fittings. 

For our first shop outside Hong Kong to be in New York City is a dream come true. We sincerely thank our customers for their support, and we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at The Armoury NYC.

Sincerely,

The Armoury Team

The Armoury NYC is located at 168 Duane Street between Hudson and Greenwich Streets. Store inquiries and trunk show appointments may be directed to nyc@thearmoury.com

Am I the only one who's a little puzzled how they can afford these lavish locations? I don't have anything against them, but I dropped by their HK shop once and it just seemed like a few kids hanging around socializing, and a very limited stock.

they've been at this for quite some time, and the owners are pretty smart guys with a good background in business and the industry they chose to be in, plus their HK location might seem that way when you visit but afaik they serve a pretty huge market that goes beyond hong kong... I think they have enough coin to pay the rent smile.gif

There's that word 'artisanal' again. Never heard or read it in my life outside of menswear retailers' blurbs.

Ambrosi making an appearance? Isn't that the bloke who ripped off Foo for ten grand's worth of strides? I hope they have bulletproof glass!foo.gif + fight[1].gifnest.gifstirpot.gifsmack.gifdeadhorse-a.gif

They're backed by the Li & Fung group - the same guys who just bought out Kilgour, Hardy Amies, Gieves, etc.

What I found absolutely hilarious / absurd was that in the last Ambrosi thread, despite the pages upon pages of complaints, there were several posters still inquiring about Ambrosi's contact details, and implicitly blaming problems on overly exacting SF'ers.

You know what they say about suckers and minutes.

What's even more amazing to me is that there really is nothing all that magical about his product (certainly not worthy of the sometimes absurd commentary found on this forum).

Fwiw, I think Mina Adamo makes a better pair of trousers.

I heard that Hermes has been in trouble since foo.gif's green wallet debacle.
