We are OppoSuits and we make suits. What started out as an idea while traveling through Southeast Asia has grown into a very successful adventure that has already taken us halfway across the globe. In just four years we’ve set up a range of over 60 designs, got customers in over 50 countries and more media coverage than we can keep track of. We want to provide people with quality, yet affordable suits. Our suits represent men who don’t take themselves too seriously but still want to maintain a sense of style. Over the last few years we have proven that there’s a substantial group of people out there who think the same. OppoSuits created a new category within the fashion industry and is present in almost all major department stores in the US. Of course we also have massive presence and success in our home turf Europe and the next continent Australia is just about to get started.
