Local Spots: Suitsupply in Hyde Park Village
I had the chance to attend the grand opening of Suitsupply in Hyde Park Village earlier this month, but had a conflict due to work, so I sent my ever-so-dapper other half to cover the new storefront for me. I'll let pH take it away - be sure to check out the slide show in full for an immersive experience of the new store!
Recently, I was given the chance to attend the grand opening of South Tampa’s newest high fashion mecca for men - Suitsupply. This newest establishment seems to resonate the definition of modern class and high fashion for men with all the little attention to detail taken into very serious consideration, but not too seriously. Suitsupply seems to like to showcase their store, the suits and the amazingly-perfect oxfords in a neon frame, letting the style stand out on its own. Most menswear stores seem to be very drab and earth-toned, which is more or less depressing, so it was nice to see an extreme 180-degree on the perspective of menswear. But with the attention to detail and the in-house craftsman tailoring your suit on-site, you’ll be sure to know that you’re the one glowing after getting fitted by these professionals. Suitsupply coming to Tampa seems to be an interesting choice, given its international prowess, but apparently its reputation has presided itself. They had been reporting an extremely high amount of online traffic originating from the Tampa area, so naturally they investigated and found a proper home in Hyde Park Village. I can say, without a doubt, I’ll be returning to see how classy I can get with a real testament to the classic, old-fashioned kind of man that never goes out of style. Cheers.
