Any Old Iron is the brainchild of designer/stylist, Andrew Clancey (www.clangerstyle.com) 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.
Produced by NERO/RIGAL, the fabulous team behind some of Los Angeles most glamorous and exciting events including Fashion Week presentations/shows, Mr. Black, Simon Says, and Rasputin, to name a few.
