    Couldn't have found a better successor to the throne than the Armoury Team: Mark, Alan, Jonathon and Ethan.

    Good choice, Mr Drake.

    Fashion is for kids, shiny shit sucks and suede is awesome?

    I'm liking this Mr Drake very much.

    Absolute power move. I wonder what a move like that costs.

    This happened some time ago, as WSJ notes.

    If they kept Drake on for a year post-sale, the deal would have closed last summer.

    While I would of course prefer if Drakes remained associated with the founder for as long as possible, it is inevitable that, at some stage, it will be sold. That time has now come. I suggest that The Armoury is as safe a pair of hands as you are likely to find, especially from the perspective of being respectful of the brand's identity.
