Armstrong's

There is no better place in Edinburgh to take a walk down fashion's memory lane than WM Armstrong & Son. Established in 1840 and locally known as Armstrong’s, its two branches (the other is at 64 Clerk Street) combine to make a huge emporium of vintage, retro and traditional clothing. Starting with chic items from the thirties, the range advances through the years to incorporate even those eighties trends that you thought were best forgotten. Dresses, suits, jackets, accessories, bags and shoes - there's simply no telling what you might find nestling within the shelves, but the whiff of authenticity is strong.
