The best part about having a menswear store? Getting to make really cool mugs. Following our cheesy "world's best dad" style ceramic mug, we made a super high quality, double walled, made in Japan stainless steel mug. I can't stop using this mug. It keeps its contents cold or hot seemingly forever. The lip is perfectly formed. I travel with it. I am a man who puts his beloved mug in his suitcase to use it in different countries. I am considering bringing it to restaurants but that might be a bit weird. Anyway, available in store or online, search "mug" on our website or see link in profile!
We try to keep a bit of covert coating in stock every year. It's water resistant, windproof and fairly warm, perfect for a drizzly, slightly chilly night like tonight in NY. This one is our take on the traditional British Covert coat, we kept the velvet collar but did not do a fly front or railroad track hems on the sleeves or body, making it a kind of hybrid British and Italian coat. Made by Ring Jacket and available in store and online!
Vintage Grand Seiko 4522, one of the first models to use this style of case and part of the GS look even today!
So glad I got rid of that awful faux leather strap on the left. I've been itching for an opportunity to try out the Jean Rousseau x Drake's silk straps and the black silk in this case worked perfectly. Gawd I hated that last strap, haha :]
Super pleased with how these turned out: Pommella bespoke worsted flannel trousers. They're currently having a trunk show in San Francisco and will be joining us at The Armoury NYC from Thursday! Appointments available, contact @pommellanapoli for San Francisco and @thearmourynyc for NY
San Francisco heads-up: Lino Pommella and Gianluca Migliarotti are bespoke trouser makers holding a trunk show in SF from the 18-21st. I'm not involved with that show directly but I am a huge fan of their work and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone interested in beautiful bespoke trousers, they do mens and ladies. @pommellanapoli
The Armoury brushed cotton sport coat layered with a Drake's chambray shirt and navy cotton polo and The Armoury's white denim jeans.
Just a little PSA, Thinkpad X1 Carbon and Yoga, Gen 6 with the new HDR display just became available yesterday. There's a coupon for 20% off, too: THINKPADSAVE20. I'm pretty curious about the new display, it's a little less colourful and probably less responsive than OLED but a lot better on battery. Tech is based on Samsung's QDot stuff. 8th Gen Intel CPUs have been showing great benchmarks, significantly faster than 7th Gen.
Last day of Liverano trunk show in NYC, basted fittings ready to go
I never thought I'd ever see one of these... 100% black Vicuña Liverano bespoke overcoat for Mr B. It's an absurdly soft, beautiful cloth, like handling a cloud. Trunk show in NYC ends tomorrow.
I've missed this coat so much, one of Liverano's signature pieces. I had to park it in NYC since I was travelling with my Coherence coat instead. Many tailors can make an Ulster coat but Liverano's rendition is my personal favourite. Gently angled hacking pockets. Beautiful and unpadded shoulder line. Most importantly, a dramatic and beautiful lapel. Liverano Trunk show in NYC today and tomorrow!
Amazing gift from @mfj20th, tiny little lapel clock!!
Unica is basically just men in suits and candy (men not in candy)
One of many blue things I saw
I felt like I found the glitchy unfinished area of a video game map where everything is a bit empty and you're not meant to be there.
I sat for two days under these lights. Very bright, daylight balanced, I kind of like them but damn the eyestrain at the end of an appointment. I think i got a weird tan out of it, too, haha.
