Btw, not to resurrect, but I forgot about this comment.
Has anyone had this conversation with a cutter at one of the handful of Manila tailors at the highest end? I ask because I recall having this, except that when I asked for further clarification, what the cutter meant was that they could fuse the suit then stitch it, to be absolutely sure it would last.
Good twill I would believe, as people like wearing khakis. Anyone know where to get any in the Philippines, and how would you gauge the quality?
