I second that. It's dime a dozen in Singapore. It's probably like our culture that since we go tailor we want everything - kaisu. Initials lah, contrast lah, flower lah, threads lah, stylo cuffs lah, double/ triple collar lah. Turns out the shirt become too OVER. I'm contended with a solid plain white shirt with good fabric, perfect fitting and minimal design.

BTW, just got my Tanika suit. I love the horn buttons, the texture of the fabric and special design lapel. Very good job well done!

Only exception is the sleeves. I think they are too big, especially the sleeve hole. Hope I can get it altered the next trip.

The pants is perfect. No complains as it can reveal my small little butt which many cannot.

Just to share my experience of tailor in Bangkok, was reading up tis thread before going but most of e recommended ones were quite far as was staying at Cenatra Grand. So happen to found one called Amari Tailor located along e shophouses between Big C n palladium. Overall experenice was good. But first time when in finds tat e guy attending to us alittle proud.
Took 3 days for 3 pants at 3000b, material he claim to b dun know wat wool. Workmanship was good as second fitting was almost perfect.
Wifey saw also wanted a working suit during my second fitting and they were able to deliver within 2days, too e fitting was good.
Mayb tis can be another for consideration when looking for tailor in that area. Cheers

I am curious, are you sure the prices for tailor on ten is correct? Are you a regular for tailor on ten or 1st timer?

Yes, I was just in the shop about 3 hours ago, definitely correct. There were more expensive fabrics but these felt good and were the cheapest (I am on a budget) This is my first time with Tailor On Ten but not my first time getting tailored clothing, I have used tailors many times before.

I went in for my fitting today, it made me very happy. Shirt was very slim fit (just what I wanted) and a perfect size. The pants also fit me really well, they did not have the hem stitched as they wanted to confirm the length which was correct. They only made me the one shirt at first to check size and will deliver the others tonight, makes sense incase it didn't fit so well. I am pretty happy with the whole experience.

Ben (owner) said that they have just introduced their blended suit and shirt line in the last few weeks so that explains why you didn't know Tenz1204. They have 2 shirt tailors working in the shop and you can watch them making your shirt infront of you which was different to the others I have been to who seem to just send to a factory somewhere.

One thing I would say is that they need to get a tuk tuk as they are at the end of soi 8 and its a 5 minute walk or so in the sun. I will make a suit with them next time I am back in Bangkok for sure.

Just done 4 pcs of shirts at Crown. Well service overall is not not bad, and to play safe try to go to those recommended by fellow forumers. It shldn't go wrong. Pcs and mixed advices ard the thread so do your homework before going down.

Do noted that taxi drivers do manual charge during peak hrs hence you can tk mrt to NaNa station and alight on the left with your back facing the ctrl stn.

Another most mentioned tailor is Men on ten. Its located in the far stretch of Soi 8. If u see crown, just further walk all the way into the street. U will pass by many pubs and restaruants. Its located on your left where u are facing into the street.

Cheers
