In recent years, Asian boutique brands have become popular due to their quality of craftsmanship, reliability, and reputation as great artisans and tailors. This can be seen through many emerging brands which have gained popularity across the globe, from Yeossal to Mannergram.
But there is now a game-changer in Australia, giving all of us the opportunity to purchase premium products in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. Introducing, The Suitcase – an online boutique providing exclusive products from Asian boutique brands.
The founders of The Suitcase, Johnny Li and Tom Chang, have brought together their passion for menswear as well as their cultural heritage, to curate the best brands from Asia for Australian gentlemen. These brands include Analogue Apotik, Amauri, De Piede, Yeossal, Tasteless Hat Co., and many more. Ranging from clothing to lifestyle accessories such as candles, fragrances, and more, The Suitcase is your go-to platform for purchasing some of the biggest names in Asia. The brands curated by both Johnny and Tom have been precisely selected to fill the voids and gaps in the Australian menswear realm. Inspired by their legacy, the founders of The Suitcase are avid supporters of supplying menswear and men’s accessories to the Australian menswear community.
So why Asia?
Asian sartorial fashion has become a significant driver today in the menswear community, as seen through its implementation in fashion across the world. The design and quality taken from Asian boutique brands are seen to be significantly eloquent, through attention to detail. Johnny and Tom noticed the fine quality and style of products coming out of countries such as South Korea and Hong Kong, yet they were priced at half or a quarter of the price of European brands. Sparking an idea in their heads, The Suitcase soon emerged as an online boutique for Australians.
