A Week's Worth: Women of the Armoury
The female staff from both our Hong Kong and New York locations give us their spin on mixing menswear into their daily wardrobes.
Starry Luk, Sales Executive HK
I like to wear something casual for my everyday look and Carmina tassel loafers are my go-to shoes. The tassels are cute, they are easy to match with most looks, and comfortable to wear. I've definitely put them through their paces. I paired my striped cotton linen shirt with the light weight merino sweater tied around shoulder for something more nonchalant.
Joey Lau, Operations Manager HK
I usually like to wear something comfortable for work. This Fresco material is highly breathable and best to beat the heat during Hong Kong's muggy summer. The Frank Clegg bags are really sturdy, can hold everything I need, and are easy to reach for.

Misako Otani, Operations Associate NYC
I love watching old films from the 50s and 60s and studying the classic lady's styles from that era. This simple long-sleeve polo shirt from Caruso reminds me of a shirt that I've seen in a movie by a Japanese director, Yasujiro Ozu. I am also in love with classic overcoats with a fuller fit from old French movies and this Coherence Fou Fou makes me feel like I am a part of that culture.
Connie Lau, Operation Supervisor HK
Navy is the easiest color to start with when you are trying to build your menswear-inspired / work-friendly wardrobe and it just goes with everything. I also like to add a bit of fun and personalization to an outfit, like these Bowhill & Elliott slippers. I customized this pair with the Armoury lion on one side and my initials on the other.
Alice Yip, Sales Executive HK
I always reach for a white shirt for a classic and fresh look. I also like to add some feminine touches to my outfits like wide leg trousers and pumps. The scarf adds an extra pop of color to the basic black and white theme and I love the vintage animal print.
