Attention men of Scottsdale: Your fashion game is about to get a serious boost.
That's all thanks to Scottsdale Quarter's newest retail addition, Suitsupply. Set to open on Thursday, May 22, this Amsterdam-based brand delivers a showroom of sharp suits at relatively mild prices (suits start as low as $399 online). But don't let the humble name fool you. Suitsupply is not your typical Men's Warehouse.
Offering quality Italian fabrics and seasonal lines that have been described by GQ as "practically a work of art" that cater to "real-life Mad Men", Suitsupply has secured the praises of publications like New York Magazine, Complex, and Esquire.
Still not impressed? Try this on for size. Designer, author, and overall fashion prophet Tim Gunn listed Suitsupply's brown suede monk strap shoes as one of the 12 must-have items in his wardrobe.
That's right. Tim. Freaking. Gunn.
While Suitsupply can currently be found in metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. such as New York and Chicago and internationally in countries including the U.K., Italy, and Germany, the new Scottsdale store will be 14-year-old company's first location in Arizona.
Suitsupply's 5,611-square-foot store will feature a showroom of suits, jackets, pants, shirts, shoes, and accessories as well as a private shopping room, an in-store tailor, and an outdoor terrace where customers can enjoy an espresso while waiting for alterations.
