Here's Where You Can Get Luxurious Bespoke Menswear Pieces in Manila
In this time of ready-to-wear and mass production of fast fashion, bespoke service has become true luxury. Though many tailors in Manila offer made-to-measure services, only a handful make bespoke, fully hand-made menswear pieces.
Here, we list down the luxury boutiques in Manila that offer true bespoke services.
Established in Hong Kong, Ascot Chang has been creating bespoke menswear pieces for over 65 years. The brand offers the service on almost everything, from shirts, suits, pajamas, boxer shorts, handkerchiefs and even dressing gowns—which can be made in virtually any size, color, and fabric. The brand's dress shirts, for one, are made up of 25 different components and most can be customized to the client's request.
It takes over 21 days for Zegna's tailoring service to produce a suit, from measurements to delivery. The process starts with the fabric, and the brand has been making the finest fabrics since 1910âallowing clients to choose from 400 exclusive fabrics, masterfully woven from selected raw materials. Not only that, Zegna allows clients to "choose every last detail, from the buttons to the collar size."

Van Laack has been offering its bespoke luxury shirts in Manila since 2011. The service allows customers to have their own shirts made in their own signature style. The process starts with selecting the preferred fit, fabric quality, collar type, and ends with an optional embroidered monogram. Aside from the service, Van Laack promises luxury by using the finest Swiss two-ply yarn fabrics or Pima cotton to create the non-crease shirts.
