Aéropostale is coming to Manila

by Chris

The Philippines is really becoming a fashion powerhouse. In the last two years we have seen Uniqlo, Forever21, Cotton On, Sperry Top-siders and several other global brands invading the country. And look what we have now.


Aéropostale. I saw this “Coming Soon” billboard at the newly re-opened Glorietta 2 mall in Makati. It got me thrilled because I like this clothing brand. They are quite popular and I remember asking my relatives from the States to buy me shirts from Aéro whenever they would come home to the Philippines for a vacation.

I am proud that fashion labels around the world are noticing Manila and the Philippines in its entirety as a place where men (and women alike) dress well.

And it is not only international brands. Local brands such as Bench and Penshoppe are expanding worldwide too. Bench is available in a lot of countries already and Penshoppe just opened a store in Indonesia. I guess global expansion is the reason why these two brands have been using international endorsers in their recent advertisements and campaigns.

I am really excited and looking forward to the opening of Aéropostale soon. I’ll post more about it as soon as it opens.

So what’s next? Abercrombie & Fitch? Let’s see.

hope they bring urban clothing lines like Sean John,Rocawear, True Religion, and others (although Mark Ecko is there) in Manila since they’re a lot of guys who like to dress nice and urban too (just watch out with the knock-offs though)….I know some people ppl back there dont like to dress hip-hop (thinking that wearing those kind of clothes makes someone look like posers, depending on some ppl) but now urban wear is getting more cleaner…

Hi Mac – Have you tried brands such as Dickies and Tribal?

You may also want to try Dockers as I have noticed that their sizes are bigger than average Filipino sizes.

Hope this helps.
