What do you mean by cotton is the only way?

not lousy la, suit different needs, some people lazy to iron will like some of those easy iron features.

Personally I like cotton at our local weather. hence 2 ply cotton is the only way for me. I can live with the creases.

How long at you in Bangkok? It needs min 3 days to get a shirt tailored.

Yup. One day only you would be better off buying off the rack.

Hello Friend,

You can check it out Toms Fashion bespoke clothing on their suit gallery via online website I have been using 5 year more over their tailoring services.

never had good experiences with tailors in BKK. some of them are not even fit to be called tailors. your best bet is to leave a sample produced from a master tailor in singapore for them to copy. that's all they are good at.

Hi guys,

Will like to check if anyone tried the tailor in Amari Watergate hotel before? I am aware that there are 2 tailors, alex fashion and paul fashion. Which will be a better tailor? I will be spending 4 days 3 nights there so wonder if I will be in time for a full suit tailor.

Thinking of giving it a try as it is located within the hotel.
Any idea what's the pricing like ?

Will appreciate if someone can advise on this.
THanks!!

Tanika Tailor and Tailor on Ten (TOT) - Post 1/4

I went to Thailand recently and thought that I should also contribute my input to all the bros here. I went to two tailors - Tanika Tailor and Tailor on Ten (TOT).

To give all the bros a little of my background info, I am new to the world of tailoring and my knowledge of tailoring is limited and it's purely based on all the information I can gather from this forum and other forums (I.e. styleforum, tripvisor, etc). I learnt that it takes time to make a good suit with multiple fittings. Given the short time I was there, I do not think it is possible to make a good suit in time. I arrived in BKK on Saturday evening and departed on Tuesday evening. Both Tanika and TOT closes on Sundays.

Tanika Tailor - 1 suit + pants and 2 shirts (Damage: 19,000 baht + 1,000 baht shipping to SG)

Measurements taken on Friday and one fitting done on Monday.

I was greeted by a friendly smiley Thai Chinese lady and later introduced to the man behind the counter. Service is friendly and impeccable (On my fitting session, I forgot and left my watch at the shop and the Thai Chinese man ran after me to return my watch.)

I told them what I want to make shirts and casually asked if tailoring a suit is possible, given the timeframe. They told me yes, it is OK with just 1 fitting. I took a chance as they seem very confident. She also gave me a few suggestions which I think is useful.

Tanika Suit

I was shown several swatches and chose their cheapest price range (14,000 baht) as I also have my reservations on a suit with just 1 fitting.

I am no suit expert but the suit fits me well, no creases. I don't know how to see if it's a floating canvas or fused canvas despite having read about them many times, but it seems to hang on my body pretty nicely. The padding on the shoulder is a little bit solid instead of a naturally sloping shoulder. As I do not know much about suits, I trust Tanika to their discretion. It turned out well.

No horn buttons are used. I do not expect much as it is an entry level suit.

Tanika Tailor and Tailor on Ten (TOT) - Post 2/4

Tanika Shirts (2,500 baht each)
I like the fit - not too slim yet not too baggy. I find it just right for me.

The materials feel very soft and luxurious on my skin. Feels very airy as well. Mother of Pearl buttons are used.

I am not sure if monogram was offered but I am not too big on that. I am fine with or without. I was too tired when I got there that it slipped my mind.

Tanika Tailor and Tailor on Ten (TOT) - Post 3/4

Tailor on Ten - 3 shirts + 2 pants (Damage: 13,100 baht + 650 baht shipping)

Measurements taken on Monday and one fitting done on Tuesday.

It was quite a walk from Sukhumvit Road into Soi 8 and I took a motorcycle taxi for 60 baht the next day for fitting on the way in, no motorcycle taxis on the way out though.

I was greeted by an employee and was offered water / beer the moment I entered the shop. As many bros have described, upstairs with 1,700 baht shirting fabric and downstairs with fabrics at 2,200 baht onwards.

Service is professional. I asked if it is possible to make a suit with just 1 fitting, but no. I was turned down. At least 3-4 fittings are required. I may make one more suit / sports jacket in the future to better compare with my Tanika suit next time.

Shirts (2x 2,200 baht + 1x 1,700 baht)
The fit is a little 'aggressive' in my opinion - slimmer. The cotton shirts feel very comfortable on my skin. The linen shirt however was my first, and it's a little rough on my first try. Maybe it'll get better on subsequent washes.

Standard mother of pearl buttons are used.

Tanika Tailor and Tailor on Ten (TOT) - Post 4/4

Pants Comparison between Tanika and Tailor on Ten

Tailor on Ten
Materials - (1 x 4,000 baht pure wool blend + 1 x 3,000 baht 70% wool blend).
The fit is a little aggressive, more of a tailored cut. I am very impressed on how it fits as my bodytype is unusual and it's hard to get a tailored fit without suffocating my crotch.

Insides
The detail inside the pants is just impeccably done. I like the white contrast inside the pants.

http://imageshack.us/a/img600/9674/2b4z.jpg

Tanika Tailor
The pants came with the suit. Hence, the material is the same as the suit. While the detail in the inside of the pants isn't as meticulous as TOT's, the addition of 2 rubbery stripes to prevent shirts from tucking out seems very useful.

The fit is more relaxed but smart.

Wearing it day to day

Tanika pants
The fit is more comfortable and it hangs elegantly down from my waist.
Due to it's less aggressive cut, wallet and phone goes in well into the side pockets.

TOT pants
The fit looks good and tapered without phone and pocket. But with phone and wallet in the side pockets, my thighs feel like it's exploding. Too tight for my comfort.
