Manila Tailor - Page 24

Just hit me up when you're here if you want to go to Cornell's and I'll go with you.
I need to get some shirts made anyway, and already have my fabrics.

As for suit prices, I would expect anywhere from P10-20k depending on the fabric and tailor, but biased toward the low end of that range.

Nice, I'll message you if I do go to Cornells. I have another tailor a cousin of mine recommended. Thanks bro.

Also where do you get your fabric? And at how much?

I get them at Fanbi. Too lazy to go to Kamuning.

Does anyone know how much yards of wool it would take to make a jacket and pant? I'm about 5'7, 160 lbs.

Depends on the fabric width : 45" wide fabric - about 6 yds should be enough for a single breasted suit with pants with cuffs. For 60" wide fabric 5 yds should do it.

5 yards for 60" width is too much. You only need 3.5 yards for a single breasted suit.

Has anyone tried Fanbi's Egyptian cotton shirting fabrics? Feedback?

Check out Tiño along Benavidez St. in Makati. The tailor is formerly from Brioni and his suits are full canvass. He has been running his business for quite some time now bringing with him his clients from Brioni. It's only now that they decided to put up their own shop.

VBC suits start at around 30k. Prices for Loro Piana below. If you provide your own cloth CMT is 12k which is a pretty good price.

From Secret Armory:

 

Suit starts from 25,000 and up. our shirt starts from 3,500

Hi guys,

Just checking in if any of you could recommend a good tailor in the Metro Manila area? I need some shirt sleeves altered. I'd also like to make this person my go-to tailor for custom shirts, much like cesp's post two pages back.

Cheers.

Secret Armory: Worth a try. However, he will take two to three months to finish your suit. MATAGAL.

Tino: Will be worth checking out.

Kingsmen (Podium branch) and Hampshire at Shang Edsa hotel: Both are good options for non-canvassed suits. Just remember to be firm with what you want. The tailors there are quite strong with their beliefs in fit and cut. Be prepared for a little debate. In the end, you are the customer.

Abdul (Sir): custom shirts and pants. YES.

Kamuning tailors: NO.

Prince Albert: NO.

Exclusively His: According to Kevin, NO. Baggy pants fit. Did not listen to customer.

Bergamo: Noli de Castro look and fit. NO. MArtin Nievera fit.

Manila Haberdasher (Jay Aguirre): NO. Terrible fit, one year lead time, disappears from his clients, terrible customer service, and moody. A group of guys here at StyleForum had to team up to find him and make him deliver the long overdue orders.

Cornell's: Be prepared for 4 or 5 fittings. Or even 6. Stubborn is an understatement. I'm not sure if he keeps a record of his customers' patterns. He is the beginner's tailor.

Ascot Chang in Shang Makati: NO. Go to Ascot Chang in Hongkong instead.
