Does anyone have any experience with tailors who say they use canvas AND fuse suits? What kind of quality is this? (I read this but am still confused by the tailor: http://www.englishcut.com/archives/000020.html) I went to what appears to be the most expensive tailor in Manila (and the only one to stock good English and Italian wool). The strange thing is that they said they make only fused suits because the fabric bubbles or doesn't return to its original shape when bent or creased. Upon further questioning, though, they said they do have canvas or horsecloth in between the fabric and the lining. They showed me a suit right after a customer' first fitting and opened a corner to reveal the canvas underneath. I asked my bosses and acidboy on this forum, and have determined what are the best tailors in Manila. Family, business and finiancial constraints prevent me from going to Hong Kong and getting a couple of suits from Chan and a dozen shirts from Jantzen. Now, I need at least one sport coat for a business trip to Singapore at the end of the month. The tailor I mentioned is the one one closest to my office and they offered to make a sport coat for about $140 for just labor, or about $260 for one made in a fabric I liked from Zegna. I was thinking to make a workhorse blazer out of a bolt of rougher Scabal fabric I have using this tailor, and I have a list of suggested specs from Manton. Unless it seems better to borrow a suit jacket from my Dad and try to have a suit and a sport coat made in Singapore. Suggestions?
