We're not trying to be anti-patriotic, but there are some major Anglophiles here at the office that dream about Dover Street Market, tea at Fortnum & Mason, and being besties with Cheryl Cole. So, when we found out that an in-the-know Brit, stylist Andrew Clancey, was opening a retail outlet specializing in UK-specific menswear and rare vintage items, we let out a resounding huzzah! Any Old Iron is named after an old English music hall song referencing a fine young dandy, which is pretty appropriate given that it sells mod-inspired duds for dudes, plus a thoughtfully curated selection of flea market finds and rare antiques that all live in a store that would be at home on Brick Lane. Don't worry, it's not just a boys' club, Clancey stocks some Sgt. Pepper-type jackets from Sir Tom Baker, a killer umbrella line, plus Child of Jago (the brainchild of Joe Corre, son of Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren) and Unconditional tees that will have you counting your pounds.
