les artistes profile: the armoury's alan see

Alan See is the co-founder of our favourite classic menswear hangout in Hong Kong, The Armoury: a wonderfully designed space in Pedder Building featuring high ceilings, rosewood fixtures, and even a double bookshelf, complete with a rolling wooden ladder to reach the top. The Armoury aims to inject a bit of colour into the sea of black and charcoal suits of Hong Kong, and to help gentlemen build their wardrobes with timeless pieces. They're also a supporter of small artisans from around the world who are focused on their craft; they regularly make personal appearances at The Armoury, so make sure to pop by some time to ravel in all their gorgeous classic menswear pieces and have a chat to some of these skilled craftsmen. Our personal favourites from our shoot with The Armoury? Their classic British umbrellas in jewel tones with animal head fixtures. Brilliant!
