Suitsupply, a European menswear brand, celebrated the grand opening of its first South Florida store on Thursday, taking a top floor space and rooftop terrace off Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.

The shop, which sells men’s suits and other apparel and accessories for men, is the first tenant in a new glass-enclosed building at 1000 17th Street, developed by Scott Robins. Suitsupply will have 4,000 square feet on the third floor, as well as a 1,700 square-foot terrace.

Suitsupply CEO Fokke de Jong and Vice President Nish de Gruiter celebrated the grand opening, along with Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, Miami Beach Commissioner Michael Grieco, Michael Comras and others.

Suitsupply’s terrace in Miami Beach is fashioned as a lounge area with palm trees, where customers can relax while waiting for alterations. It is the company’s second store featuring a terrace; it’s first is in Chicago.

In all, Suitsupply currently has nearly 70 stores worldwide, including in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Mexico City, Milan, London, Amsterdam, Brussels and Shanghai. Soon to open is a store in Los Angeles, as well as a second store in Shanghai. — TRD
