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.

Master Tailor of Tiño was a former Master Tailor of Brioni. He studied techniques in Italy so the construction of the suit is basically handcrafted and follows bespoke standrds. Tiño does it's suit in full haircloth/canvass (no paste or stiffener whatsoever).

By the way, I'm the owner of Tiño so you can ask me anything about suits and shirts. I'll be more than delighted to answer them. smile.gif

Hi! We don't really have a "house cut" like Anderson and Sheppard and the likes. But we do both "Drape Cut" for more comfortable arm movement and "Tapered Cut'. Depends on the client's requirement actually. But what is best with how we do it is that everything is done by hand. The attachment of the sleeves to the armhole is done by hand which gives perfect shape and function. :)
