New York, NY , The first retail store of its kind to hit Manhattan, Any Old Iron will specialize in selling rare and UK-specific menswear . The majority of the collections featured are exclusive to Any Old Iron and include labels like; Sir Tom Baker’s rock and roll suiting, Bolongaro Trevor’s moody-mod inspired menswear and Child of the Jago from collaborative designers Barnzley, and Joe Corre (Son of Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren). The shop will also sell exciting and edgy contemporary labels as Fred Perry, Fred Perry Raf Simons, Electronic Poet, B-Store, Unconditional, London Undercover, S***R shoes, and Red Mutha.
Any Old Iron is the brainchild of designer/stylist, Andrew Clancey and arts-entrepreneur, Christopher Melton. The shop’s name is rooted in the olden cry of a scrap man collecting metal with his horse and cart, and also hearkens to Clancey’s family scrap metal business which was founded in 1872. “Any Old Iron,” is also an Old English music hall song which references a young man’s sartorial dandyism – a quality that is distinctly English, and, ever-present in the shop’s design and the legion of British designers featured. In addition to exclusive collections, rare and sought-after antiques will also be for sale.
