“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.
Therefore, our friends living in, or traveling to, Manila should check us out to find your favorite brands in an amazing venue.
So how do you feel about The Nines now? Want to follow this super-cool shop and learn more about it? Well here’s your chance!:

To increase the durability of the products, Publish has added water repellent and stain resistant to some of these Space Camp products. In addition, the seams of each piece are taped to streamline your movement while resisting any liquids. The three styles are named appropriately Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune. We are very fond of the new Space Camp collection and love how the materials, textures, and most importantly the 3M pattern, really gives off the space effect.

Jogger Pants™ Day is just around the corner, and we can barely hold in our excitement! Save the date on your calendars for June 16, and spread the word to your friends and family. This will be a huge day for Publish Brand to celebrate the Jogger Pants movement in today’s fashion. This event has been created for the Publishers, Publish fans and everyone who has made this epic trend such a success.
The Jogger Pant™ has a long history of how it got to where it is today. Publish Brand was founded by owner and creative director Michael Huynh, who was determined to create something phenomenal and unrivaled. See our recent interviews with Publish team here and here. It all started with a pair of knit Marc Jacob sweatpants that were the perfect fit, so his friend suggested to Michael that he create a similar, yet unique silhouette. Huynh made it his own and sent it overseas to be produced in a fleece material. His factory sent it back, but misinterpreted the fabric request, so it came back in a stretch twill material. At first Huynh was outraged by this mistake, but then he took a few steps back and realized this could turn into something incredible. What a pleasant surprise!
In the beginning, the Jogger Pant™ was not so successful, mainly because it was not understood by customers. So Publish came up with a campaign to advertise the product incorporating how they imagined the pants should be worn. They portrayed a very masculine guy holding his hot wife’s hand, while pushing a baby stroller. It was a way for customers to relate and make the connection that they could pull this trend off as well. And sales grew rapidly as this cool new fashion item hit the streets.
Publish Brand continued its marketing blitz, and fans saw Jogger Pants™ as clothing that could be worn as everyday by men. Soon, other companies began to copy the design, which is when Publish knew they needed to trademark the brand. As their popularity shot through the roof, Publish named them “Jogger Pant™,” keeping it simple and fun. Even though established brands with a steady clientele began producing copycat pants, nothing stopped Publish from pursuing their dreams.
Publish’s goal is to grow the company and develop more fashion options for the everyday guy. Different seam/hem lines are being incorporated into the pants using the highest quality of materials. Publish Jogger Pants have been featured by Hypebeast, GQ, and other big-name companies. This brand is growing immensely, and it is amazing to see how much they have improved from 2009 to present day 2015.
It is our great pleasure and honor to announce this big event! Major Drop, our friend in Malaysia, will finally have their 1st year anniversary this June. In celebration of that inaugural mark, an anniversary party dubbed “The Lucky 1″ will take place at Slate at the Row (Jalan Doraisamy) on the 13th of that month.
The event will be held from 6 PM to 1 AM through the night including official after party at The Lust KL. Frontrunners of streetwear ICNY, Benny Gold, The Hundreds, Publish, CLSC and TOMS will be showcased in pop-up booths at the event. Not just that, a lineup of good music will warm up this event!
Publish has published a vibrant and outgoing summer collection! They have gone above and beyond with their designs and appropriately named the collection, “Open mind.”
It is to be interpreted to enter this summer open-minded with new experiences and opportunities coming your way. As summer awaits, Publish encourages the mind to be optimistic and radiate good vibes only. This collection is a direct reflection of infamous California summers circa 1980.
A new trend in the fashion industry for men is the two piece matching top and bottom. Publish has designed many of the shirts and shorts / pants to be the same color to be able to mix and match. Some new fabric embellishments involved in the making are tie dyes, acid washes, and ombre. They have chosen a different route to include more vibrant colors and lighter weight fabrics for the summer lifestyle.
From tank tops to button-ups and shorts to joggers, there is a wide variety of colors and patterns to choose from. This collection will have you looking hotter than the California sun!
