1. They have some at Rustan's but the selection is very limited. I usually buy them abroad.

3. Would the reception also be outdoors (if so, a lighter colored suit might be more appropriate if you have one)? A black suit would be appropriate for a Coat and Tie wedding. A blazer/sport coat and slacks combo may not be as appropriate. However, if you think most people will not be following the dress code, then go ahead and wear your blazer/SC.

 

And no, wearing a PS is not strange in the Philippines (especially for parties).

Hi Guys,

 

I wish I read this forum before coming to King Philip to tailor a suit. I just collected my suit today and it was a horrible, both the suit and the experience. The first fitting was delayed 4 days and I need to fly somewhere on that day so cut story shot, can't make it for my friend's wedding day.

 

The suit itself was totally off. What was supposed to be slim fit is become a baggy bell shaped suit. I insisted them to do another alternation, but they won't budge. In the end I gave up realising that with their skills, nothing much they can do.

 

So guys, if you need a suit done, please find another tailor, or think twice before approaching King Philip tailor in Glorietta.

Another sad yet common story when dealing with most local tailoring outfits. Btw, I have a guide for having suits made on my blog to minimize things like this from happening.

Thanks. Ended up buying in Van Laack in Gbelt5, and regretted it soon after.:P

2. Yes, the master tailor is still the one who was trained in Italy.

I'm happy with Cornell's shirts but figure it would be nice to try other tailors.

I have enough fabric for 3 dress shirts. Time for a dress shirt shootout?

Cornell's already got my business. They can sit this round out.

Where is Abdul located?

My cousin is having a suit made at Sarto, and seems to be happy with the service so far. I figure I'll give them a try.
Any feedback from Tino? They're just a couple blocks away from my office...

Noted on Tino. I have enough fabric for a 3-jacket shootout too, but that will have to wait a while as I'll be travelling a bit.

Best to email him: whiteplanesworkshop@gmail.com

 

I'm looking forward to it. Not sure I would want to personally spend for a shootout.
