Can anyone recommend a jeweler competent enough to change watch straps without scratching anything? I need a bracelet changed to a strap..

 

Edit: Never mind, I learned how to do it and did it myself.

Order online from Albert Thurston or try the Armoury in HK.
Manila has no source of button braces whatsoever.

Hello Manila friends,

Edmond and I are going to start bringing in Alden shoes to the Philippines soon. We are currently doing a pre-order for those that want to get in on the first batch of shipment. The first batch will consist of mostly Indy boots & long wing bluchers. Expect prices to be same as US retail. Let us know if you're interested!

Check out our FB page: http://www.facebook.com/TheRefinedManShop

Thanks!

Already following your page (thanks to Edmond) and looking forward to doing business with you guys. Are you planning on setting up a brick-and-mortar or will sales be internet-only?

hi brian as of the moment we want to keep the cost of sheos close to retail in the USA so we wont setup a shop or store yet unless the need arises.

i think having coffee sharing tips and fitting with customers locally will serve as an experience with the client.

an of curse keeping the cost down is our main goal

My,my. What a great thread! Thanks for all of the great information. Here in Manila on business. My favourite suit is getting close to retirement and want to have it copied. I will head down to cornells and get it done. Is it best if I leave the suit with him to copy? Or will he just take measurements?

Hi guys! 

 

Do you know of places where they sell good textiles for long sleeves aside from divisoria? Looking specifically for textiles from japan or from other countries from the west. Some of the tailors don't have that much fabrics and some do require you to supply your own. Found out that most of the textiles that they are selling in divisoria are from korea and china. Some are good but some are also not that high quality. Also found out there's a store in greenbelt called Fanbi - they sell Japan textiles but they sell it double the price from what's in divisoria. Are there other places where there are high quality textiles?

 

Thanks! :)

Hi there, 
So, I went to Cornell's over the weekend. As stated above, I went to get a Hugo Boss suit copied. I was quoted 10500 peso for the suit including some okay looking cashmere/wool fabric that he showed me. I know that it is nothing flash, but I am a complete novice in terms of good fabric identification. He agreed to discount the price if I got more than one made up. I go for my first fitting sometime next week. I'll base my decision on the outcome of this. 
There was a gentleman in the store there for his first suit fitting whilst I was there. He seemed quite happy with the work and I must admit that it did look like a well made suit. Cornell seemed honest, humble and happy to oblige with all of my requirements. 
I also got 5 shirts made up. Again, not my own material, just some nice looking cotton material he had in store. I was quoted 1000 peso per shirt. 
I will post again with pictures once I pick up the stuff. 
 
One question: I am here for ages on business and I can't find any good places to get shoes. I have a (US 14) - (EU 38 1/2) sized foot. Does anyone know where I might be able to source some quality business shoes?

Cornell's is ok. Don't expect too much. I have switched tailors and I hope this will be better. I am currently having a suit made by The Secret Armory Bespoke. I will be finished by around first week of December.

For shoes, you can get Allen Edmonds in Rustan's and Church's in Univers Rockwell. But they are all way too expensive that you will be better off placing an order online. I never buy my dress shoes here.

Thanks for your response! I will have to check out The Secret Armory Bespoke. For shoes, I think I will just wait until I next leave the country. I haven't had much luck with reliable delivery of items in this country. Customs are slow. and so far, only 50% of the packages have actually come through.
