Jackson Tailors - tailors suit makati
One must have a good tailor on call. It is one of those things that should have been taught by our parents. But the onslaught of ready to wear products, the need to have one custom made for us or better, bespoke for us, just seems to go with the wind. Philippine Tailoring is one of the finest in Asia. Being westernized is a product of Filipinos adapting easily to almost anything. We tend to love anything western and despite the heat, our ancestors loved sporting the coolest suit during our Spanish Colonized years. Ilustrados wearing a good suit was not uncommon, nor was it unbecoming. Dr. Rizal carried himself quite amorously in one and I saw a lot of old nostalgic photos of our colonized ancestors garbed in their filipino tailored suit. To church, to business, at a wedding, at a funeral. They loved wearing it. Most asians prefer to wear their own garbs, Indonesians in malongs, Chinese in cheongsams, Japanese in their robes. Our Barong Tagalog was fashioned after the morning tails of the west. It is quite enamoring how it evolved into a buttoned up close neck twosies. So looking back our tailors passed on so much and like so many other professionals, they tend to leave. So kudos to those tailors who are still here despite the 90s ready to wear boom, which Jacksons was admittedly part of. Supplying for Rustans, Landmark and SM, Jacksons second generation tailors thought to ride the bandwagon and go retail. However, we brought back bespoke. Quite frankly, we had chosen to let that one skill go, but our founder Jackson Chu surely taught us well and the British tailoring classic method is still alive in our work. Some of the british bespoke suit enthusiasts were able to to get a taste of what it is that keeps this method timeless. Cause basically anyone who wears this rare experience falls in love with it. We become used to loose clothing that we simply forgot how it is to wear something fitted to us. Alterations cannot simply replace what bespoke is and if you must since you love the brand, have us on call, because one needs a good tailor on call.
