My visit to The Armoury in Hong Kong

Earlier this year I paid a visit to the well known ‘The Armoury’ store in Hong Kong.

While I was there I had the opportunity to speak to Ethan and chose for myself two pairs of Carminas (a norwegian split toe and suede wholecut) that I will share photos of once I’ve worn them in a little. Ethan is very knowledgeable about the products in store (and sartorial matters in general) and his advice when choosing shoes was invaluable. Ethan, if you’re reading this, thank you again for your assistance.

While in store I was permitted to take a few photos which you can view below. The only other thing I can say is I am definitely looking forward to visiting Hong Kong again in the near future.

I don’t judge a man by the shoes he wears but by the care he takes of his shoes.

Its no secret that I love to polish shoes, and as my personal show collection has grown in quality and diminished in size, its become even more apparent to me how much the quality of shoe dictates the finished result in a great “bulling”.
