The Story So Far…
Suixtil’ story starts in 1930s Argentina. Its founder, M.S. Rudman was a revered gentlemen’s outfitter in Buenos Aires. He also happened to be a passionate motorsports fan.
When in 1948, the national Armada racing team was formed, Rudman offered Suixtil’ support. And so, Suixtil became the world’s first professional racing gear.
The team famously became known as Escuderia Suixtil, and was led by the legendary racing driver Juan Manuel Fangio.
Fangio and his team garnered a fearsome reputation around the world for their prowess and daring. It wasn’t long before their distinctively stylish and functional track day apparel caught the eye of Europe’s top motor racing names. Over the next two decades, Suixtil became a track day staple for racing icons like Stirling Moss, Peter Collins, Mike Hawthorn and many more. Tragically, the Suixtil brand faded from the public eye after Rudman’s death in 1967.
40 years later, a coterie of motoring enthusiasts resurrected the brand, and began recreating those classic designs using a detailed eye, quality materials and a contemporary touch. Since the rebirth of Suixtil, classic motorsport and style enthusiasts have been able to continue the legend.
