Does anyone know of a good tailor or supplier specializing in reproduction revolutionary uniforms? I reside in Europe at the moment so somewhere here would be great, but if not someone in the Philippines or elsewhere could also be interesting to me.
For example, I came across Pedro Javier's Facebook site "Pedro's Militaria" which looks great, and I would definitely have been interested in ordering some of those items. Unfortunately, none of his contact emails work and it seems he hasn't updated the page in over 3 years, so I guess he is no longer active

Thanks very much! I emailed him at his old personal email and at firstname.lastname@example.org but in both cases the email bounced back with a "not delivered" message. If you could get in touch with him that would be great.
Thanks for the help guys. I can confirm that I was since able to get in touch with Pedro Javier and he was able to send me two very nice custom-made uniform sets - one rayadillo one with straw hat along the lines of General Geronimo's uniform, and the other white coat/blue trousers with Kuracha cap, more like what Del Pilar and Luna wore. I was very happy with the uniforms, and he managed to send them all the way to where I live in Europe. His attention to detail is excellent - on one occasion he even corrected the tailor who was making the shoulderboard ranks in slightly the wrong design. I can highly recommend him, and I expect to be making further orders from him in future. We're very lucky to have someone like him, who can help to bring our glorious past alive again! :-)
Whereabouts in Europe are you living Batangueno? My home town is London and I'm back there in Sept. I too will order a rayadillo uniform as I already have my white one and a blue tunic. On the Subject of Heneral Luna Movie; all reviews so far are very positive! It also has English subtitles so it may be shown around the World or at least on the US History TV channel. I hope it generates a greater membership in the Phil./American War reenactment groups as well. Armiesin plastic.com may even be willing to produce Spanish/filipino figs. again to balance the "Rough Riders" Box of 54mm ones.
