Any Old Iron, 149 Orchard Street, New York

Any Old Iron is a new men’s boutique in New York’s Lower East Side specialising

in stocking rare and UK-specific menswear. Located at 149 Orchard Street between

Stanton and Rivington, the shop 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.

The full London Undercover range can be found in store, so pop in and send our best!
