The Armory, a menswear boutique founded in Hong Kong in 2010 with an outpost in New York’s Tribeca, is a rarity when it comes to men’s fashion …
This boutique is able to delight all male members with classic fashion pieces, such as tweed coats. Their commitment to creating a modern dandy style brings together brands such as Ascot Chang and Drake’s, along with many artists, in order to create together a very limited amount of clothes.
One of the artists who collaborates with them is Johei Fukuda, a shoemaker who designs custom clothes and owns his studio in Tokyo. After a series of successful magazines and numerous satisfied clients, Armoury Boutique has hired him to create the entire collection for them for the first time. It is now available for purchase, and it is exemplified by their unconfirmed classicism.
The silhouette of the shoes created by Fukuda are inspired by retro pieces, which Mark Cho, one of the founders of the Armory Boutique, found in the archives.
Fukuda transformed them into modern shoes with a slightly narrowed tip, which are elegant, but not overly formal. Of course, the best luxury leather was used to make these shoes, and they are available in shades of burnished burgundy calfskin to rich chocolate suede.
Every piece ($495 ) in this line is made in England, and those real connoisseurs of the classic men’s fashion know that destination is long revered for crafting the highest-quality shoes. We must admit that this collection is ideal for men who want to look sleek, wherever they go.
