LS x Armoury Trunk Show at LSDT

We are pleased to announce our first trunk show with our friends from Hong Kong, the Armoury on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013 at Leather Soul Downtown.

Ethan Newton and Alan See, both extremely influential in recent online men’s wear circles, will be on hand to take measurements for made-to-measure clothing by La Vera Sartoria Napoletana, Orazio Luciano.

Luciano is one of the flag bearers of modern Neapolitan tailoring and with his early involvement with Kiton, the similarities are apparent. His jackets are extremely soft and unpadded with generous lapels with a beautiful flow of the Manica Camicia shoulder.

MTM trousers will start at $700 and jackets at $3100. Appointments are limited and are filling up quickly so please contact Tom directly at if you would like to make an appointment to be measured and to place an order.

This is a very special event for Honolulu and we are proud to introduce Neapolitan tailoring to the islands.

Burgundy is one of our favorites shades for dress shoes. Whether it’s Horween’s color #8 or one of John Lobb’s burgundy shades, it’s a perfect match to navy and grey trousers.

The Chapel and Philip II are modern day John Lobb classics in our opinion. Our latest version are in variations of John Lobb’s burgundy shades, Plum Museum and Claret Misty calfskin.

Alden Shoe – CXL LHS Back in Stock (LSW & LSDT)

The CXL LHS is back in stock in very limited quantities. One of our all time best pre-order sellers, the CXL LHS is one of those “no-brainer” models we’ve come up with in the past. Horween Chromexcel leather is the perfect choice for a casual go-to loafer. An oiled single flex leather sole rounds out the details.

Edward Green – Buckingham in Navy Suede (LSW)

As we roll in to March it is getting close to loafer season (although loafer season is year round in Hawaii). Edward Green’s Buckingham loafer is a handsome alternative to the classic penny. This full strap loafer with handsewn vamp looks great on the 100 last. Elegant and sleek, this unlined loafer will put a little swag in your step, especially so in the killer navy suede we chose.

(100 last, $1420.00, shoe trees included)
