Suit it Up Manila recently attended Pitti Uomo 96 at Florence, Italy last June 11 & 12, 2019. Pitti Uomo is a renowned international event for men's wear and men's accessories. It combines a trade fair and a fashion exposition under one roof gathering people from around the world. We wanted to share with you an inside look into the happenings at Pitti Uomo 96 as well as to highlight the bespoke outfits we wore during the event which were 100% Filipino made by our tailors and craftsmen at Suit it Up Manila. It was such an honor to represent the Philippines at such a global stage.
