Vincent Metais is the President of Suixtil. After spending 15 years focusing on the cultural and business operations in the Asia-Pacific marketplace he set out on a new adventure. Six years ago Vincent re-launched Suixtil, a well-known clothing brand in Argentina during the 40s and 50s that tailored high quality gentlemen’s suites and race wear. Suixtil was worn by the famous Argentinean racers known as the “Armada” team. The drivers included Fangio, Campos, Gonzalez, and Marimon who all wore Suixtil to victory. Vincent has brought this brand back to life along with its history and focus on high quality for those who want to enjoy the best that life has to offer.
“Life is really like a track. There are no short cuts.”
