For 40 years McJim has been recognized as a brand that creates quality leather good and is one of the leading brands of leather goods in the Philippines. McJim has a long tradition in making leather goods.

Last June 30, 2014, I got a chance to attend to an event that McJim has organized. It is called Dreams Get Real Grand Finals Night at Teatrino in Greenhills, San Juan. It is a talent search for the next OPM star. McJim has been very supportive to OPM. They held auditions to hundreds of artists then deduced to 6 grand finalists.
