Suixtil is a celebrated brand of racewear, famously linked to Fangio and his victories of the ‘50s and ‘60s.
Now Suixtil is seeking a suitable distributor for the UK.
AV PR promoted its celebrations and Fangio’s birth centenary a couple of years ago with his release:
Argentinian race wear label Suixtil’s presence at Goodwood Festival of Speed (30 June-2 July) fashionably celebrates both its motor racing heritage and the birth centenary of its most famous protégée, Juan Manuel Fangio, with a contemporary range of racing outfits sporting the unmistakable embroidered red logo.
The Argentinian race team and Fangio, its captain, would have worn Suixtil colours on both their clothes and their cars, as Suixtil was the very first brand to develop the concept of sponsorship.
Escuderia Suixtil, whose name became synonymous with podium victories in the ‘50s and ‘60s, was always sensitive to the top racing drivers’ needs for a combination of comfort and style. Now, as then, luxurious yet cool fabrics keep the cockpit heat at bay with a chic cut which encourages ease of movement.
Note to editors: Favourite racing outfit brand for most international top race car drivers in the ‘50s and 60s, Suixtil followed Fangio’s rapid ascent to stardom as well as that of many other racing drivers both in Formula One and in Sports car competitions (dressing winners of Panamericana, Le Mans 24 Hours, Targa Florio and Mille Miglia races). Suixtil’s current range of garments is made by craftsmen recreating the original livery: light blue race pants and a yellow or white short-sleeve shirt, both proudly sporting the distinctive red Suixtil embroidered name: the Heritage Line is a faithful rendition of the ergonomic and stylish clothes which made Suixtil famous. To mark 100 years since Fangio’s birth, Suixtil has added a special edition top in either short sleeves (Balcarce) or long sleeve (Buenos Aires), available from September to coincide with Goodwood Revival, another Suixtil appointment.
