Raymond Ronquillio of R33 Car Exchange lives #thesuitituplife
with Grit & Determination. He serves as an inspiration to others
because of his passion to achieve his dreams and lift up others in the process.
Owning and operating a luxury car dealership requires a lot of confidence and resourcefulness which Raymond possesses as he started slow and steady at first but has now become a household name in the industry.
You cant not know Raymond if you are buying a Ferrari, Lamborghini or Rolls Royce. He is very open and direct to the point. He has great instincts when it comes to his clients and he knows a sale when he sees one.
He walks in a room with confidence. Its not arrogance or pride. He has been doing this for so long that he has become fearless in his dealings and knows the ins and outs of what needs to be done.
A successful man must dress the part to fit the Lifestyle he aims to achieve and to command respect from the people he deals with day in and day out. Suit it Up Manila believes Raymond is one of the best influencers the embodies #thesuitituplife - an ideology based on suiting up in formal and casual settings as a way of self expression that resonates with all.
A Man in his position needs to present his best self. Looking Good is a Strategy as much as a venue for Self-Expression. Having your very own Bespoke Suit serves this very purpose. “When one looks good, He performs at his best.”
Suit It Up Manila partnered with Dormeuil which has produced luxury suiting fabric since 1842 rooted in England and Paris. Our objective, to create and highlight the construction of handcrafted suits by Filipino artisans combined with the distinct patterns, colours and qualities from Dormeuil cloth. Three carefully created looks were made in line with Raymond Ronquillo’s lifestyle in mind. Raymond’s Life as an Entrepreneur, Pilot and Jetsetter requires him to Suit Up and be Comfortable as well which is why his first two looks depict a more laid back approach to suiting. By mixing a suit jacket with chinos or khakis, one is able to pull of a more casual vibe without being over the top. The last look is a necessity for men of men for his stature. A three piece suit will make you stand out in any formal occasion or setting. The double breasted waistcoat (vest) is a key element to this package as it elevates your typical suit with an added touch of personality.
Stand Up. Suit Up. Step Up. Failures are the fuel to our fire. We win or we learn. If you want to succeed in life, you have to be willing to take the risks and roll with the punches like Raymond Ronquillo. Determination, perseverance and hard work will never fail you.
