Bespoke Without Borders

ShareThis

Tribeca’s slow morph into a man-clothes mecca—­following J.Crew’s Ludlow Shop and the bespoke Manuel­Racim—continues with the U.S. arrival of the Armoury (168 Duane St., nr. Hudson St.; 646-613-7613). Hong Kong–based co-owners Alan See, Ethan Newton, and Mark Cho launched there in 2010, offering (rather incongruously for a city known for its dime-a-dozen custom tailors) made-to-measure clothing wrought by top-quality Italian artisans like Orazio Luciano, who stitches his signature unpadded-­shoulder sport jackets in Naples. At the New York shop, these bespoke orders are taken on the mezzanine level and start at $250 for a button-down shirt and $1,125 for a suit; on the ground floor, an all-glass exterior leads to walnut racks of ready-to-wear clothing and accessories from all over the world, ranging from a winter-seersucker sport coat by the Japanese brand Ring Jacket ($1,260) to calf-leather braided tassel loafers by Majorca-based Carmina ($550). Following a grand opening planned for the spring, the store will host a series of trunk shows with master craftsmen, flying them in from Florence and beyond for in-person custom fittings and even shoemaking.
