    Plenty of bankers in the area willing to part with their money for Armoury stuff. Not all bankers are looking for a bargain... they want a huge selection and instant gratification.

    Maybe Hermes and Gucci aren't all that anymore. #Menswear has built a following for Drakes, Carmina, etc.

    Plenty of bankers in the area willing to part with their money for branded, more mainstream items like Gucci, Boss, Armani yada yada.

    It's an affluent part of town but I would have recommended opening in Soho, Flatiron, Chelsea, etc. Higher density of their target demographic, i.e. yuppies in their 30s. Wish them success though, most of the recently opened #menswear boutiques blow.

    Disagree. I live in Tribeca and there seems to be more $ here than in the areas you mentioned, aside from SOHO, but that's the "model" crowd.
    Tribeca full of bankers, money guys -- etc etc.

    I also live in Tribeca and $=/= taste. Although Im excited that Armoury is opening up shop a few blocks from me, I feel that they would have benefited more with a location in midtown.

    I thought everyone knew that the Armoury was a front for the Hong Kong Triads. :confused:

    They will be fine here. We have the same crappy mixed use laws in TriBeCa as in the rest of nyc to deflate commercial rents (see for example the dismal store they are taking over). There is no shopping here but edon manor, the high end women's accessory store that opened a few years ago is probably the best proxy and appears to be doing ok. And Conde Nast is taking a million square feet of office space in 2014.

    I hope they implement a bespoke shirt program. We already have ascot Chang and would really benefit from some great bespoke options.
