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.
