I recommend Crown tailors. I gave them a try on my recent trip to Bangkok. They did a great job and did it well in time. Hope you enjoy the same great experience as i did

It was a sisters trip to bangkok with my bf on 26 Jan 2012. It was mainly a shopping trip and we always missed out time for my bf to have his office pants tailor made. It was about 11pm when we walked past Adam and Eve Fashion and my bf decided to have his clothes tailor there due to time constraint.

One of the stuff greet us happily and he got to work on convincing us of the merits of purchasing custom made cloths from them. The product would be high class and made of the best materials. They know that we are from Singapore via the way we speak and they immediately quote us in Singapore dollars, which i believed that americans will be quote at a much higher price in accordance to the area/ countries etc they came from.

To make a long story short, after about a hour of being soft soaped , being constantly reassured of the their integrity and that we would be very satisfied we agreed to go ahead. This turned out to a very expensive and distressing mistake.

My bf paid for S$260 for 4 pants and 4 shirts. It cost the same as the shirts/ pants that G2000 sold in Singapore. However as tailor made, we agreed that with good workmanship the price quoted qould be reasonable. The measurement were taken and he gave instructions on what he wanted. However, it was obvious from the first fitting that it was a ripoffs tailor with poor workmanship! The inner linings of the pants were rough (threadlines were badly sewn along) and the measurements around the waist/hip was wrong.

The tailor apologised and promised us that there would be no problems after the alterations. They too, wanted to send the altered clothes the hotel's reception. I was not convinced as there was no second fitting after the altered clothes. Also, it was already one day before we depart bkk. Again, the tailor reassured us and promised there would not be any problems.

HOWEVER! After we recived the altered shirts, we knew we were in trouble. The shirts were completely different from what he had requested. He made this clear and was told that it would be altered to my satisfaction. The waist/hip problems were solved but they increased the arm width without our noticed. The arm width was now 1.5 inches bigger!!! It was already the day to depart bkk and we had to rush to the shop and demand for an alteration.

We had expressed complete dissatisfaction with their products. The tailor dismayed that it was a small difference and to my shock and disbelief, the manager of the shop smirked and cover their mistakes by saying that everything goes in proportion. If they increase the waist length, they would increase the arm width as well -->> MEANINGLESS to tailor our clothes if we want it to be tailored fit to any man's body.

Now, my bf was left with unfitted shirts and he would need to spend much more money to alter his shirts in Singapore despite the money paid for "quality and good workmanship" that the shop boasted! Adam and Eve Fashion had left us with very bad impression and i would prefer my bf to be better off buying shirts locally than to be ripped off by bkk tailors.

The whole experience has left us with very bad impression of Thailand. At the very least tourists should be warned to be constantly on their guard from approaches from such ‘nice’ people and the entrapment techniques used by such tailors. The inexperience tourist in Thailand is constantly targeted. (Especially caucasian!!!!!)

I recommend Tom's Fashion. His website is Tomsfashion.com

I have purchased suit from him last year. The work is excellent. They are very professional people who pay a lot of attention to the customer satisfaction. He has a lot of selection of fabrics and styles for each price range.

Adam and Eve Tailors


I was travelling through Bangkok and came across this tailor , they measured me up and sent my suit by mail to me in Australia , they kept contact with me by phone and the suit arrived with no problems. I was very impressed with their professionalism and the suit is excellent. I think that if you want a great suit , give the tailor the time to do it properly , these guys did .Thanks Mark and company.

Visited Excelsior tailor in Bangkok. Very happy there. Value for money for the product received.
When they say something will be done, it will be done.
Also, if you have anything that you want changed or adjusted, they do not give you a hard time.
They make regular sales tour around the world and will invite them next time to my office.
Made 3 suits 3 shirts and a cashmere coat with them.

If you do not have sufficient time to get proper tailoring done - then don't do it at all!

Never pay in full right up front! You should schedule fittings and inspections before you take delivery. Too late to get anything fixed right if you receive the article at the last minute just prior to flying out.

Good luck.

I've lived and worked in Bangkok for the last 15 years on and off and have settled on...

for SHIRTS-

RAJAS.

It has MOVED from it's old location on Nana to between Sukhumvit Soi 6 and 8
http://www.rajasfashions.com/awards.php

It is a bit pricier than many tailors but the cut is good and generous

for SUITS-

NICKERMANNS

At the bottom of the landmark hotel / basement
http://nickermanns.net/about-us.php

It is better than Rajas, in my experience, as their double stitching and lining in their pants and suits are very clean.

Having read some raving reviews on 'Universal Tailors', I made contact and visited them. I got a Tux Jacket, a trouser and a couple of shirts done. Everything was done to my entire satisfaction and before time. Ronnie was attentive and knew exactly what was needed. I have been to Bangkok many times and have visited many other tailors. in the future, I will stick with Universal. I wish to recommend them to anyone who needs a good job done
