Bergamo Does it With Class.

With twenty years of experience living and working in Manhattan, New York, Mel M. Meer decided to pack his bags and head home. Armed with the knowledge gained from running and managing his own fashion boutique, complemented with his experience working as a financial consultant, a CPA and an Interior Designer, Mel came back to Manila and soon after established the brand Bergamo in December 1986.

Named after one of the most nostalgic cities in Italy, Bergamo was first launched at the Greenbelt Mall in Ayala Center, Makati City. Initially, Bergamo brandished designer clothing for both men and women. However over the course of the brands’ operations, the company soon found its niche and forte in the premium men’s tailoring and made-to- measure industry. Through the years, the brand has built a name and a reputation that is now synonymous to well-crafted, high-quality, and personalized men’s formal and office wear including tuxedos, suits, dinner jackets, blazers, trousers, and the official formal Filipino national costume the Barong Tagalog.

After more than twenty six years of existence, Bergamo can presently be found in four strategic locations around Manila. In addition, the company employs a highly-competent, experienced and skillful workforce composed of sales associates, a master-cutter, and expert tailors and sewers, many of whom have been with company from its inception.

For 2013, with the quest for continuous self-improvement and growth, Bergamo has brought in well-renowned and highly-regarded Filipino Designer Mr. Dennis Lustico as Creative Director to inject new designs and ideas to update and modernize the look of the brand. Further, the company has forged agreements with a number of premium, high-end imported fabric and textile brands such as Loro Piana, Lanificio Cerruti and Thomas Mason for Bergamo to use their cloths for our bespoke and made-to-order needs.

As been the case from the start, moving forward, Bergamo will continually strive to offer our clientele the best in service and quality, ensuring that Bergamo’s tailoring standards are always upheld for the brand to remain synonymous with well-made and well-crafted formal and office menswear.

To provide the discerning and discriminating man a place for high-quality, well-crafted and stylish formal and office attire made by expert sewers and tailors in a well designed and well-maintained environment staffed by a highly competent and experienced sales force.

Two weeks ago, I was invited to a private dinner by Mr. Mel Meer to see the latest collection of Bergamo. I was told by Dennis Lustico, creative director, that 11 hot male models were going to walk the ramp. Since it was also directed by Robby Carmona, I would only be too stupid to miss it. 

Have always loved the way Mel Meer fixed his home. 


The handsome and intelligent David Celdran hosted the event. 

Congratulations Mr. Mel Meer for a wonderful evening filled with Bergamo surprise!

Who's your MOMMA??? 

Super crushing on this one.

the jackets don't quite pair well with the pants. they need to be slimmer and a bit shorter. looks tad awkward.
