Suitsupply Zürich – Introduction

Yesterday I was attending the opening event of Suitsupply Zürich.
Since I started my blog, I’m a really big fan of the brand.

Zürich Store

The new store looks very chic. The suits are made of wonderful materials and brilliant cuts. It is like a big candy shop for a gentleman with a passion for trend and fashion.

Suitsupply Zürich offers a big selection of colours and materials – there is something for every budget.

Interview with Nish De Gruiter – the VP of Suitsupply

How many countries are you selling your fashion so far and how is it going?
We have 57 stores and we will be opening another 8 – 10 stores this year.
In the last couple of months we were opening stores all over the continents.
In future we will be represented in cities like LA, Hong Kong, SF, Miami or Sydney.
What are the reasons you came to Switzerland and do you see a growing market here?
 
Funny you’re asking, I think Switzerland is a place for international people. Everyone is here, it’s one of the countries where the heartbeat of the world is happening.
How do you manage to sell such amazing suits with this brilliant material for these fair conditions?
All of our fabrics are Italian, we’re working with brands like Vitale Barberis, Larusmiani or Luciano Barbera. And we ship straight from Italy to the factory in the far east and then to the store.

Describe a perfect gentleman

It’s all about proportions, we’re all about fit. It’s all about fit. You can buy a suit for a couple of thousand, but if it doesnt fit, it’s useless.
And it’s not only about fashion. It’s the package. You’re opening the door for the woman, and you always behave correctly.

HYT H1

Myself with the HYT H1 – Quai du Mont-Blanc.


An encounter between Fine Watchmaking and fluid mechanics. One might say an utopia. Shattering all certainties, steamrollering conformity, the idea that led to the H1 was simple and consisted of two flexible reservoirs fixed to each end of a capillary. In one was an aqueous liquid filled with fluorescein, and in the other, a transparent viscous liquid. To keep them separate : the repulsive force of the molecules in each liquid, with a meniscus to mark the boundary between the two.
