Hmm..when you asked him why is it 1 ply and not 2 ply as mentioned, what did he say? I understand the premium ones are the 3000 baht one. hmmmm...their English is quite good so don't think that there is any communication problem.

I agree with this above post. Sam/Mana etc speak excellent english and from my years of dealing with them (along with having a dozen other clients in the room), we all know that their 100% cottons are single ply unless you pay the premium. In fact - at the 1200 range, that isn't their 100% cotton. I think it's mentioned so many times in this thread as well. I am pretty certain you may have had some misunderstanding because the one thing we can all agree on is that Crown is bloody honest with their fabrics, and after having used some other tailor stores, it's good that they are!

Btw anyone made it to their tour thing? experiences?

Was there one afternoon. Probably coz it is weekday so no pressure and relax. They are not too much into discussing on details. But spent $1K for one suit + 1 pant and 5 shirts with monographs.
Expected to get it in 4-6 weeks. Let's see the fit then.

Yes, shirts start from 2,000 baht but worth every baht with workmanship and quality. Can see and feel the difference from Jhaspher and Crown once worn. You may try 1 and see as compared to Narin Coulture, they need 3 pieces to start with. I believe same standard as they have their own workers in shop to hand stitch etc..

when i was at crown tailors, Sam and Mana were in Singapore. How can there be communication problems when i explicitly asked the "plump" tailor 3 times before i placed my order if the material is 2 ply?

Grantt, i have been looking at the past threads and i know you have been highly recommending Crown for the past few years. The reason for me to sign up in this forum is to post the truth abt my experience in Crown.

It is then up to users in this forum to exercise discretion whether to make a shirt there. In my view, 1200 baht is way too exp for a single ply. You can easily get 2 ply material in Singapore for SGD $50.

If a 2 ply material needs 3000 baht to make, i might as well go CYC in Singapore to make. Much more reputable and i need not worry about the time constraint. (3 days in bkk enough time to make 3 shirts etc). I can do as many fittings as i deem fit. My opportunity cost is higher in bkk then.

Lastly, I wish to warn all users in this forum that i have this nagging thought that perhaps a small minority of users here are "hightly recommending" a particular tailor as they are paid a commission for writing good reviews. I am not targetting at any particular users but please be very prudent.

How much does a CYC shirt cost?

kendecorp 18-07-2012 01:13 AM

Poshua,

Around $99 for basic 100% cotton shirt and the best part is you can have a full refund if you are not completely satisfied with the shirt. I chance upon the website and they will tell you whether its a Egyptian Cotton etc. I heard afew of our ministers made their shirts there. I will be personally going to make a shirt this week and will post my review here.

Copy and paste from their website

What happens if my CYC shirt does not fit?

New clients are advised to tailor one custom-made shirt first to get the perfect fit. Subsequently, CYC is then able to replicate the same fit for additional shirts that you might like to tailor.

Should the shirt not fit well, clients in Singapore can simply return to any of the two CYC stores to get the shirt altered. However, if you still do not like the end product, you can return the shirt to us for a complete refund, as long as the shirt has not been worn.

kendecorp - i don't disagree with you about your experiences, but i only mentioned to you that i've known crown/sam/mana for many years now and each and every experience of mine has been great. As i also mentioned, their honesty of their fabric is also one of the key factors along with the many others that i keep going back to them, and that is essentially the reason me (along with others on this forum) question whether you misunderstood. No hard feelings as it seems you took it a little personally.

Anyways - as you mentioned, to each their own. I still enjoy my crown clothing and will continue to use their clothing/make new ones.

Lastly kendecorp, i think everyone recommends their own tailor that they are satisfied with. Look in the previous pages and you will see each user who enjoys their own tailor. The top 5 on this thread (in no particular order):

Pinky
Crown
Tailor on ten
pauls (not as much it seems anymore, but hey, it's still mentioned at times)
jhasper

Maybe it's time to do a little work and walk around and then decide where to go. This way you know what you are paying for. Any one with new experiences, please do share as well. We all look forward to new ideas.

That's still ultimately very expensive by Asian standards. $99 for 100% cotton. Wow. Isn't this the reason we stick to Bangkok though? And damn $300 for a shirt - i do wonder what's it made of? Gold?

So it's impossible to tailor a shirt given my short time there?

OKCATYEON 18-07-2012 02:28 AM

Anyway, kendecorp works for CYC I think.

Look at his post counts and the posts he made.
