“At the end of the day, I think it’s what we all want.”
Trent Javier – Co-founder – The Nines
On December 9, we welcomed the newest streetwear / contemporary store in Manila, Philippines: The Nines. Highlighting heritage brands and new-age cuts, the drinks were on the house and the in-store raffle, giveaways and music by DJ Ace Ramos and NixdamnP made it a night to long be remembered.
Energizing Manila’s burgeoning menswear scene, The Nines intersects streetwear with contemporary high-street fashion.
Conjuring up styling sensibilities from a bygone medieval era, the retailer derives its namesake from the phrase “dressed to a knight” – later transitioned into the American-led adaptation, “dressed to the nines.”
While its origins imply an aptitude to clothe oneself in the finest of formalwear, The Nines reinterprets this to denote dressing well in any such genre, be it streetwear, formalwear or anything in between.
With a core foundation rooted in fashion and photography, the shop converges both mediums to create its own distinct design language and its in-house photo studio styling area.
Customers are encouraged to snap their very own lookbook-mannered pictorials in a well-controlled, professional environment.
Moreover, The Nines staff remain at the ready, eager to discuss brand concepts while offering sartorial expertise on how customers can stylize items into their own artistic agendas.
The Nines is positioned to help pioneer The Philippine’s menswear movement and gear up to acclaimed labels while securing exclusivity with highly coveted imported brands as Thrasher, Stamped, I Love Ugly, Odd Future, Publish Brand and Blvck Scvle.
Other noteworthy names showcased at The Nines include Vitaly, Civil Regime, Rastaclat, Suavecito, Richer Poorer, Clear Weather and RESHOEVN8R.
As you can see, The Nines brings the most typical American style to the Taguig district of Manila, Philippines.
According to Trent Javier, the co-founder of The Nines, their goal remains simple: to help spearhead a movement based on stylistic excellence.
More importantly, The Nines aim to project and instill confidence to any and all who walk through our doors.
The event photos show you exactly how hot and popular The Nines is in Philippines.
