^ I have some fitted ones from the 60's that belonged to my dad. Love 'em.

I like the more upscale places, I've done some of the more divey spots in Manila and it was a bit too dingy for me. What's the good shopping there? I know Rustans for high end...but looking for other stuff....anything unique? Not thinking that I'll spend a whole lot of cash...but probably going to Mall of Asia and Megamall.....don't remember megamall being very good though.
My avatar pic, thing is of Tagatay, taken by my brother. We've discussed this before... and no one really agreed w/ me, but I like Cornell's custom tailor. Fused suits and fairly raw handwork at buttonholes, but really inexpensive and the best I'd seen while there. Great for pants and shirts. Fusing is really light if you do get a jacket. You would need to be really specific about what you want (tight collar, high armholes or whatever Sator calls it, etc.). Get fittings. I'd also visit the Shoemart in Megamall for the handkerchief/pocketsquares. They're cotton and machine made, but come in tons of designs and colors. Those are the two things clothing-wise I look forward to visiting.
