About: After working at Country Road for the past 11 years, Newcastle local Troy Pezely, took the plunge to open his own store earlier this year.
A one stop shop for men’s gifts, Steel & Anchor is constantly evolving and has everything from bags, grooming kits, watches, skin care, leather wine coolers and homewares.
Handpicked and curated by Troy himself, he admits, “I ordered so much stuff it was so much fun”, with majority of items sourced from within Australia.
“The name Steel & Anchor pays tribute to the history of our home town, Newcastle. Newcastle has a proud steel-making history and is a busy port city”.
Troy’s favourite thing to do in Newcastle on his day off: “I normally go for a big walk, grab a coffee and then go anywhere near the beach and have some breakfast. We also have a family holiday house at Port Stephens, so I go up there as well.”
