^ that sucks man. Did the tailor offer to re-do the shirts to spec?

Cornell isn't perfect but if they make a mistake they will try to fix it. Probably wouldn't hurt to write down your specs so they have a reference.

I'll notify him tomorrow about my requests that were not done and I do hope he'll fix them without additional charge.

I actually wrote all my requests on paper. I don't know what happened why none of it was followed. :(

 

I'll try Cornell's next time for my egyptian fabric.

Pure wool but not Holland and Sherry or Drapers. Will try to post a photo when I get a chance to wear it again.

I've been there and I've learned not to waste my time and money on incompetent tailors who cannot follow instructions.

Kevin are you referring to a certain tailor with initials R.I.? :)

My current (soon to be ex LOL) tailor's store was beside R.I.'s before my tailor decided to move outside the market.

Yes. Those shirts didn't turn out well and was a complete waste of money. I no longer go to Kamuning for anything.

A few posts ago, Fanbi in Greenbelt was mentioned. I called Fanbi a while back and I was told that they only have Wool blends and no Pure Wool. Very disappointing :(Any opinions on Fanbi?

 

Where do you guys source your fabrics? 

post #458 of 567

I get my fabrics from Fanbi. They're the only store with a good assortment of fabrics suitable for shirting. I got my oxford and egyptian cotton from them.

 

I remember buying some japanese and italian cotton from a fabric store in Glorietta 5 before as well.

This thread is a bit old but for those still subscribed, this may be interesting. For anyone looking to have a pair of hand welted dress shoes made made in the Manila, I just started Sapatero a small workshop in the city. We use full grain Italian calfskin and oak bark tanned leather for the insole, welt, and outsole. We just started so its by appointment only. You may reach me here or through our Facebook page sapatero.

Best if you entice us with photos of your products and put a link to the Facebook page.

Hi Guys,

 

Looking to get a nice suit for a 20K Php budget. I heard about Sarto Manila. http://www.sartomanila.com/ 

 

Have you heard about it?

 

 

I know Abdul, I met him a couple of time throuht his girlfriend. He made shirts for some of my officemates. It took a super long but it was good.

Anyone knows where to buy GOOD imported dress shoes locally?

The only pair I have right now are Bristols but I want to try the imported ones.

I heard Rustan's have Allen Edmond's but I'm not sure if their prices are the same as posted on Allen Edmond's website. I really want something like an AE Mccallister. I like those Tricker's shoes sold by therefinedmanshop too but they're too pricey for me.

  • Hi Cranktrooper,

As you mentionned, you can find good imported dressed shoes in Rustan's. There is AE, I don't know if there is the model you like and if you could order it.

 

You can also find some Church's in Rockwell, in Homme et Femme shop, where Appartment 1B is.

 

In Greenbelt 5, there is Tod's. 

 

And in Shangri-la Mall, there is Santoni. 

 

 

Let us know when you will have bought it.
