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.

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.

The Shiggy Shine

The “Shiggy Shine” by LSW’s Shig is quickly becoming the talk of the town. A hand polish is something that has yet to be offered here in Hawaii so news of Shig’s incredible service is creating a buzz throughout the local business community.

“Tweaking” is nothing new to Shig and we’re glad to have him tweak on polishing. Experimentation is the secret to his success as Shig can be seen trying out new combinations of polishes and creams behind the bar at LSW in order to perfect his Shiggy Shine.

The Shiggy Shine is a service that will be available at LSDT. For more information please feel free to shoot us an email at
