Tom’s Favorites – The Armoury

The Armoury in Hong Kong is my favorite menswear shop in the world. My friends, Mark Cho, Ethan Newton, and Alan See run the most incredible store you will ever step foot into. The curated selection of clothing: Ring Jacket, Orazio Luciano, Liverano & Liverano, as well as a fine tuned collection of leather goods and footwear, make this haberdashery second to none.

Tom’s Tip: Follow their Tumblr page: The Armoury Lightbox to completely and insanely inspired.

Tom’s Favorites – Yakiniku Hiroshi

Yakiniku Hiroshi is probably my favorite place to eat in Hawaii. The quality and cuts of meat are second to none and comparable to some of the better yakiniku restaurants in Japan in my opinion.

For those who are unfamiliar with yakiniku style dining, flavorful cuts of raw meat are served to you and you grill the meat right on your table to your liking. A variety of side dishes and soups accompany the meal.

Yakiniku Hiroshi also boasts a great selection of fine wines but I prefer their Japanese “nama” or draft beer on tap.

Tom’s Tip: Order the Platinum Course. It’s the priciest course meal on the menu but also the best value and will leave you completely satisfied.

Saint Crispin’s – The PC Boot (LSW)

Another amazing makeup by our friend PC, the “PC Boot” by Saint Crispin’s, showcases everything about Saint Crispin’s we love. The strong, chiseled lines, incredible hand work, and amazing finishing make this such a spectacular boot. A Russian calf inspired grained calf was chosen for the ankle and shaft while Horween shell cordovan was used for the balance. A Norvegese hand welt adds substance and functionality.

This boot is available via MTO only.

(*Price available upon request*, lasted, hollowed shoe trees included)

John Lobb – Jodhpur w/Croc Strap (LSW)

We’ve just received a restock of our very special John Lobb Jodhpur Boots with croc strap. If you remember, we received this model back in March as a MTO model for one of our customers. It was such an amazing boot we decided to make it as a stock model.

This time we have it available in both bracken misty and black misty.

(8695 last, $1995.00, shoe trees included)

Alden Shoe – #8 Pitt Boot (LSW)

Our Alden Pitt Boots continue to be one of our most coveted boots. The details of a double waterlock sole, antique edgetrim, and vintage inspired rubber heel are what make this boot the winner that it is.

It’s funny that we haven’t already released a #8 version of this boot but regardless of that we are happy to finally release it to you now.

LSDT on 12/12/12

Today we had a small private blessing for LSDT and our staff by Kahu Kelekona Bishaw. Just before the blessing a light rain fell upon Downtown Honolulu. Amazingly, the rain stopped right after the blessing. Mahalo to Kahu Bishaw for bringing us good spirits and reminding us how blessed we all truly are.
