Because of the pattern. In my view, the windowpane and the stripes don't work well together, particularly when the scale is similar.
I have the grenadine fina stripe (but in a bow), but wouldn't wear it with a navy windowpane suit. The solid dark red would be a better combo, in my view.
First of all, condolences. I expect your grandfather would have been touched by the amount of thought you're investing in what to wear to say goodbye. If there's a time/place for wearing keeping clothes sombre, I'd say a funeral/wake would be it. That might rule out #4, which might (depending on the shade of the khakis) to be a more casual outfit. If it were me (and knowing my family), I would stick with #1 or #3 - and if I were travelling, I'd probably just take the...
Could be. See posts 179-182 on http://www.styleforum.net/t/314734/the-official-drakes-london-appreciation-thread/165. You could also ask for a closeup pic of the small tag, to see if it carries the initials "MD". Of course, you could also ask Drake's.
Some interesting designs. Any end users willing to share thoughts on how the quality of the 100% cashmere relates to Begg, Colombo, Drake's etc?
Presumably you requested swatches, and still can't decide. #8 (midnight blue) is quite dark.
I'm in the same situation (also live in Manila) and have gone to HK (also sometimes to WWC) on day trips for fittings for 4 or 5 suits over the past 7 years. Each fitting only took around 30-45mins, so rather a long day incl. travel to and fro, for a relatively short amount of time at the tailor, but it's worked well.
As always, it depends on the quality you expect and how much you're prepared to spend. In my view, tailors here in Manila cannot compete on a quality basis with even mid-range counterparts in HK. First is the access (or lack thereof) to better cloths (Scabal, H&S, W. Bills etc), and second (as far as I'm aware) is the lack of family-owned tailor shops with proper tailoring techniques passed down from father to son. However, if you bring quality fabric (make sure to bring...
You could try the dry cleaner in basement of Podium. I can't remember the name, but it's not a Metropole branch (which I refuse to use since they have screwed up at least 3 articles of my clothing). I live in San Juan, and work in Pasig (Ortigas), and am struggling to think of any other place. Several years ago, I used Heel Sew Quick in Megamall for a very basic alteration, but am not sure I'd entrust anything more complicated to them.
