    Master Tailor of Tiño was a former Master Tailor of Brioni. He studied techniques in Italy so the construction of the suit is basically handcrafted and follows bespoke standrds. Tiño does it's suit in full haircloth/canvass (no paste or stiffener whatsoever).

    By the way, I'm the owner of Tiño so you can ask me anything about suits and shirts. I'll be more than delighted to answer them. :)

    I think I'll take you up on that offer, if you don't mind. :) I'd like to know what Tiño's "house cut" is?

    Hi! We don't really have a "house cut" like Anderson and Sheppard and the likes. But we do both "Drape Cut" for more comfortable arm movement and "Tapered Cut'. Depends on the client's requirement actually. But what is best with how we do it is that everything is done by hand. The attachment of the sleeves to the armhole is done by hand which gives perfect shape and function. :)

    Mr. Unicorn aka Edmond / Demonito / Demonator/ Uncle Ed, you may call me Stevie. Let's have breakfast soon.

    Brian, Family Style was my dad's CD which I remember not giving back to him when I was 16.

    Tino's suits look good.

    Looks like there are sleeve pitch issues.

    I understand that it's hard to tell how a jacket fits based purely on photos but I just want to point out that I think the shoulders are a tad wide (by about half an inch) and the sleevehead is a bit small. I surmise this is what's causing the divot that I have highlighted in the photo. More info on divots on this SF thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/151698/divot-terror#post_2686570

    It's not just you.

    But to be fair, it's just a fitting. Sometimes you just need something in the pocket to check if it's in the right place.

    I'm an expat living here, and now looking for a place to get slim Italian suits done - the right and affordable way.
    I'm also looking to get some shirts made.

    But tailoring is only half the battle - where do I find good quality fabric?


    Suit and fabric style:

    Shirt colors and patterns I like:

    Seeking recommendations for tailors and also fabric stores.
    Thanks in advance!

    I got four mtm suits...2 from kamuning tailors, and both were disasters. Finally, i decided to get my suits and shirts in hong kong at jantzen and om custom tailors, and bother were pretty great. Im not a suit expert but i felt very comfortable with my decision. Now im thinking which manila tailors to use for my tux. Mid range, less than 15k if possible. But 20k is ok.

    Cologne:

    One thing I seem to have a tough time finding in Manila is Cologne.
    Where's the place to go to find all the new and latest cologne for men?

    Rustans' department store, but don't expect a wide selection.

    Defacto and Viktor make jeans. I don't know if they will do alterations on jeans they didn't make.

    I just bring mine to Alterations Plus in the malls to get them hemmed.
