delstore is one of those hidden gems in Hong Kong. They keep a low profile and attract a certain kind of clientele: those into a rugged yet sophisticated look. Many of the brands they carry are known only by a few but are held in high regard amongst enthusiasts. Their focus is on outerwear and the clothes are generally thick or on the heavy side even the spring/summer collections. Brands such as Nigel Cabourn, Mountain Research, Nanamica, Engineered Garments, Mighty Mac are a few of the more well-known brands they stock. The shopkeeper has an amazing background as well. He worked at Japanese denim brand Evisu a few years back and is bringing some of the brands they carry to Pitti Uomo next year. I hope to see him in some street style photos come January.

Editors Note (12/31/12): Darren of J. Panther Luggage Co. pointed out that those weren’t their bags on the shop counter.

delstore is located at G/F 3 Schooner Street, Wanchai, Hong Kong island. If you are taking the MTR, get off at Wanchai station and take the A3 exit. Walk west along Johnston Road until you reach Ship Street. Walk all the way up the stairs until you reach Schooner Street then turn right.
