Ed, go to Cornells just make sure you bring lots of photos of the kind of suit you want.
The Manila Haberdasher has new fabric hookups so you might want to consider him too.
Haven't had a chance to drop by yet. I'll update when I do.
Hey, nice thread, found it while googling Manila tailor. I am going to check out Cornell tomorrow, if they happen to be open, for some shirts and slacks and a barong or two. Today I got some measured and put a deposit for jeans, at a place called Defacto, in Legaspi Village/Makati. I promise I am not spamming for them, not sure how they will turn out but heard a positive reference somewhere else on the web. Fwiw, they have a buy 3 get one free promo going on. Price is about 2500 pesos per pair.
The place is right next to "the tailor shop," I think when I saw that I thought, man I could use some MTM shirts.
Heads-up, Deal Grocer, a Groupon type site is offering a deal on a bespoke shirt from Ascot Chang shop in the Makati Shangri-la. The deal is a voucher for a shirt for 8500 instead of 17620 PHP. You are not limited to one voucher. Deal is about to sell out. I picked up one to give them a try. While earlier in this thread this shop was heard to be not as good as elsewhere in Asia, at this price point it may be worth a try.
