Born of qualIty
Suit It Up Manila embodies the spirit of the Savile Row scene with its commitment to personalised services and by sourcing only the finest materials. As a collaborative effort across industries, the brand reintroduces fabrics by Holland & Sherry, one of British fashion’s most historic merchants. Suit It Up Manila’s Chief Operating Officer, Franco Ongkingco shares that Filipino men crave for individual expression through the clothes they wear. While it is already commonplace to spot men in suits of solid colours, “our goal is to introduce more variety and break the monotony.”
