post #436 of 584

Thanks Kevin!

I'll try Cornell's for my oxford fabrics. I might have to bring the shirt I got from Kamuning to help him get the right fit. The fit's actually great I just didn't like the fusing and button holes.

I'm looking to get a tailored suit made. I'm a newbie in suits and men's style in general.

 

Can someone point me to a good suit tailor in the Metro? As mentioned, I'm a newbie and I would be willing to pay extra to get a tailor that can make the right decisions on style for me. I live in Makati.

 

(Sorry if this has been asked before in this very long thread.)

Hi everyone!

 

Anyone tried toppers? or should i go to Cornell's? I'm planning to have a linen jacket made by the way. 

 

and... does anyone know the price range of shirts at Secret Armory Bespoke? 

 

Thanks!

I recommend back reading a few pages aka RTFF before asking.

Go to Cornell's. Friend had a navy linen jacket made by him a few years ago and it was decent.

 

I'm not up-to-date with his prices but probably starts at 12k (Thomas Mason cloth).

I have. Among the tailors mentioned in the first few pages and the last few pages, Cornell receives the most praise. However, I see you're still saying that he requires a lot of oversight and directions on the style from the customer.

 

I can't give ham that, so my question stands: Is there someone better than Cornell where I can pay more to have the tailor make the right decisions on style?

Alright, thank you so much Kevin!

 

Edit: 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake just hit Bohol. Many old Churches collapsed. Such good timing considering that today is a holiday which meant less people in buildings.

These are tailors and not designers. Even I would not trust Secret Armory Bespoke or Tino Suits and Barongs in terms of styling.

Those two sound like my best bet. Thank you.

I have tried Secret Armory once. His starting price for suits is Php25,000.00. For H&S or Drapers fabrics, suits start at around Php55,000.00. I would say that hIs attention to detail is way better than Cornelio. However, turnaround time is approximately 3 to 4 months.

What kind of cloth do you get for Php 25,000? Maybe you can post a photo of yourself in a Secret Armory suit. :)

Please do post a pic. I would like to see a work done by Secret Armory. :)

Hi,

 

How much does Abdul (SIR) charge for shirts?

post #449 of 584

I am also interested in trying Abdul. How do we reach him? Kevin knows everything about Abdul, I think he is his go to shirt maker. Share some info Kevin :D

Just had another bad experience with my tailor just when I decided to give him a second chance.

Too bad I had 5 shirts made.

None of all the details I specified was followed.

 

Barrell Cuffs were all French Cuff hence the rounded cuff for two shirts and mitered for the other three weren't applied.

Unfused cuffs and collars were all fused

Left pockets for the two oxfords were not done

Soft interlinings request and stiff interlining requests were all interchanged

 

I'm really going to Cornell's for my next shirts.
