are these suits for a man or for a woman? if for a man, back in the day i used to go to Raja's on Sukhumvit Soi 4 just south of the entrance to Nana Plaza. i haven't been for years, but all the suits i own now were ordered there. it isn't the cheapest place, but they did have a good selection of fabrics and colors for suits and shirts and did three fittings, which meant the stuff really fit well when it was done.

lots of the tailor shops in the Sukhumvit area actually are just fronts. they have the fabrics and do the measuring, but the tailoring work is done by just a few skilled folks who go from shop to shop and pick up the orders.

sorry, it has been so long that i can't even guess what prices are now. but price aside, you can often get a few extra goodies like shirts or ties or handkerchiefs or such thrown in to help make a better deal.

good luck and let us know which shop you choose and what it costs, quality, etc. cheers.

I would recommend you to go to the tailor that I used Jhasper Fashion, a few minutes inside Sukhumvit Road 11. Not only did their suits fit me so nicely, but they hang so nice after dry cleaning and are still going strong. Quite detailed at their work and professional service in their consultations of wardrobe selection.

I bought suits in thailandand veitnam, the quality was much better in thailand and the choice of fabricstoo, if you have a chance they have a fabric market there you can buy a bolt ofthe fabric you want the suit made out of.
They charge ridiculousprices for little extras like fancy buttons and stuff so don't be surprised ifthey try this on you.
Be very particular aboutwhat you want in terms of cut and style as some have old styles like heaps ofshoulder padding and stuff which looks wierd. Tailor Pro on sukhumvit road isthe place I would recommend.

There are excellent tailors in bangkok. You just have to find them. Make sure you choose a good fabric, your clothing can only be as good as the fabric! I'd check out Tailor On Ten which is on Sukhumvit Soi 10, (good website). Also while you are in bangkok take a dinner trip down the river, re

I get shirts from Marty's New Fashion a 5 minute walk from Soi 11. They are nice and don't pressure you. But remember YOU have to stick around long enough for a couple of fittings. DON'T let anyone send you stuff. Select your fabric with much forethought. The guys at Marty's know about how things hang and all of that. If possible, bring something from home similar to what you want. It helps them see how things fit you if you are not an average figure. I am an ex American footballer so I have been through this with a few tailors.

You need to make sure you choose nice fabrics. There is no point in getting tailored clothing if you use poor quality fabric

Not sure if you still need the recommendation, but I was very happy with the services of Crown Tailors in Sukhumvit soi 8. Had been using them for quite a while since my last post and have continuously been happy with their work, service, and most importantly their fabrics! I'd look them up if you're still looking for a good tailor.

World Group Tailors. Not the cheapest but very good cloth, skill and service.
I have used their for both suits and shirts over several years.
Find their shop on Charoen Krung in Bangrak and not the new one on Soi Oriental as it is slightly cheaper.
If you want slight cheaper then Victor almost bang opposite on Charoen Krung is good.
