Our newest collaboration piece is the Charles Coat, named for Charles Mingus, the legendary jazz bassist and composer who famously once shot his shotgun indoors. Armoury co-founder Mark Cho worked together with Nakagomi-san to create this modern shooting jacket. The Charles features sleeves designed for maximum range of motion, hand-warmer pockets, and large patch pockets for you to keep shotgun shells or more likely, a book, your smartphone, or a tablet.
COHÉRENCE founder Kentaro Nakagomi draws inspiration from legendary artists, writers, musicians, and intellectuals of the 20th century to create versatile outwear with personality. Each piece is produced within a small batch to the same level of quality as our Armoury tailoring, often with hand-attached collars and great attention to detail.
The Armoury has partnered with COHÉRENCE since its very first season, proudly stocking their coats and jackets both in Hong Kong and New York. Relationships like this one allow us to create our own exclusive models that combine their expertise with our international classic aesthetic.

The Armoury exclusive Marc Coat was inspired by French-American painter and writer Marcel Duchamp. The style is originally derived from the dispatch rider's coat from WWII. We added a simplified belting system and adjusted the proportions with a lower waist and buttoning point. The Marc is modified to make the style more practical and suitable for city life than the original.
The Corb II is a variation of the Corb that incorporates large patch flapped pockets with a ticket pocket. We had it made in a super high gauged 100% cotton poplin, which carries a soft hand that blends breathability with elasticity.
