Our Spring/Summer ’22 lookbook features this season's tailoring and new exclusive models from The Armoury by Ring Jacket.
"It's a pleasure getting to know your neighbours. Recently, Opera Gallery, one of the leading international art dealers of the world, opened down the street from us in Central, Hong Kong and we found their space and their pieces on display both moving and inspirational. So much so, we decided to create a lookbook introducing our Spring Summer tailoring amongst these brilliant colours. We are particularly excited this season to be introducing two new jacket models, the single-breasted Florentine-style Model 15 and the double-breasted dartless Model 16." – Co-founder Mark Cho
The Armoury's Model 16 double breasted sport coat is inspired by jackets of the 1930's. Featuring a lower, more horizontal lapel that sweeps out wide and straight, it's incredibly classic and wearable. Featuring a one-piece back, combined with a dartless front, makes for an overall seamless affect. It features the same unpadded shoulder and enlarged sleeve head as our Model 6 jackets and is extremely comfortable with an exceptional range of motion. This jacket is made up in a classic herringbone patterned linen from Italian mill Solbiati, perfect for the warmer months.
The Armoury's own Model 15 is a tribute to the great city of Florence. The jacket features a soft unpadded shoulder, with enough canvas and structure to give it added extension. One of the most prominent features of a Florentine style jacket is the lack of a front dart. This is achieved through use of an angled side dart, which hides cleanly behind the arm of the wearer, presenting a more sleek appearance. The round sweep from lapel notch to open quarters adds to the slightly rural, countrified appearance. The jacket is is slightly shorter, with the notch and breast pocket traditionally low. This silk mid-brown glen check is woven by Ermenegildo Zegna, perfect for the warmer months.
