What makes a modern Filipino gent? A gentleman is someone who carries the best practices of tradition and gives them his own modern, signature flair.
Among all the metropolises in the Philippines, Cebu is unlike any other. The Queen City of the South is a charming mix of heritage and the future, with new and modern infrastructure and elements against a glorious backdrop of rich tradition and culture.
In many ways, Spectre is the same — a premiere men’s retail brand that also blends current trends and the classic, timeless style that is suitable for today’s modern Filipino gent that wants to look and feel at his best.
The best of Filipino heritage and modernity will all come together as Spectre is flying to Cebu to hold its first-ever trunk show at TheHenry Hotel Cebu from November 24-26. The venue is fitting, as The Henry Hotel is known for patronizing local artisans that showcase the best of Filipino products.
Master Tailor Napoleon Arienza of Tiño, the Philippines’ first local bespoke suit shop, will be bringing his signature brand of Filipino craftsmanship to create bespoke suits for Cebu’s dapper set. Aside from the bespoke suit fitting, you can also drop by to check out Tiño’s range of made-to-measure and off-the-rack suits.
On November 24, it’s a night of merriment with cocktails and jazz music as Spectre presents its other brands such as such as Urban Traveller Co., Loake Shoes, and other menswear items that will be showcased at the trunk show.
From November 25 to 26, Master Tailor Napoleon Arienza will be taking appointments for measurement-taking and fitting for bespoke suits. Witness the whole range of Spectre products, from suits and shoes, to bags and other leather goods.
