Our Master Tailor
In January 1978, Ray Reynaldo (Aldo) arrived in Winnipeg from the Philippines and with his wife, Teresita, in search of more opportunities. A Master Cutter and Tailor, Rey began working at different tailoring shops to familiarize and established himself in the Canadian market. After four years, Rey was fortunate to attain a small tailor shop to a big-hearted retiree who soon became his close friend and mentor. While working, Ray saw a growing demand for tailors in the wedding industry and decided to move his store downtown in 1984. He soon put together a small inventory of formal suit rentals and made to measure apparel. With the community's support Aldo Formal Wear has continued to grow as a family-run business that works to make every garment and experience special.
