Store visit at Tiño Suits and Barongs.

I feel like I'm the male version of Audrey Hepburn and Carrie Bradshaw every time I visit clothing stores/shops, not the clothing stores you see inside the malls but the shops/atelier of our country's couturier and also some clothing brands that have their own shop. I love visiting fashion designers atelier because you get to see and feel the texture of their fabulous designs/works, their mood board for this season, their very lavish and chic store design and lastly you get to talk to the designer itself and be friends with him/her (it's very important that fashion bloggers/style bloggers have lots of fashion designer friends because they can help you what to wear if you have an event to attend).

Yesterday, I got the privileged to visit a shop in Makati that offers Italian quality and world class suits and barongs for men. The name of the shop that I'm talking about is Tiño Suits and Barongs. Eveytime a person ask me what are my tips in dressing up, the first that I always tell to them that you should know first your identity in order to develop your personal style and second wear clothes that flatter and complements your body structure, "fit is the key to perfection".


A classic and a well tailored suit is one of the key pieces that a man should have in his wardrobe. You should have atleast a two well tailored suit in your wardrobe just in case you have a formal gathering to attend or a job interview.

Personally, I'm having a hard time finding a suit that really fits and complements well with my body type because the suit that you see on the malls are fixed sizes (small, medium, large) and sometimes these sizes are not accurate, like the sleeves are too long, the length of the suit is not right, the color is tacky etc. Thankfully! I don't have to think of these problems anymore because Tiño Suits and Barongs offers stylish custom suits and barongs that complements and flatter your body structure. They know what fits you and they know how to make you look 10x gorgeous by wearing their pieces.

I love the whole interior of this place, upon entering the shop I already feel the sophistication and the sense of class. The whole interior of this shop can be compared to the one of the most high class clothing stores in Italy "I applaud the interior designer and the whole team of Tiño for having a great sense of style".

Tiño just opened their store last 2012 and they already have a lot of high class clientele. You can see their suits worn by country's high profiled people, ranging from celebrities to businessman to politicians. Their master cutter "Napoleon Arienza" studied in Italy and has been specializing in custom made suits for over 20 years. Mr. Napoleon Arienza is the responsible for James Bond classic sleek and sharp suits!! woaaaaaah!! super MAJOR!!.

You can get a ready to wear suit for P18,000 ($450 US Dollars) and that already includes the alterations to make that RTW better fitting. On the other hand custom made or tailored suits can range from P23,000 and go upwards of P100,000 for their Italian fabrics. 

Lakas maka owner ng pose ko dito! hahahahahha. Sana sa future magkaroon din ako ng sarili kong dress shop.
