The purple and blue shirt are luxury cotton at 2,200 baht.

The white and pink are premium cotten at 1,700 baht.

Go and have a feel of the material, you will know why the price differs.

If you are the usual tourist with just 4-5 days in BKK, I would suggest lowering your expectations of the tailors there or keep to SIngapore tailors.

not entirely true, some of the tailors in SG also send their orders to the factories in batam etc. but of cos, there are some exceptions and if you manage to find one that provides good value/quality, then you would have found a gem. :)

That is true but the main difference is that you can do as many as fittings you want or need before you finalise the shirt or suit you are making. Unless you are in BKK for 2 weeks, where most people are there for 4-5 days, that will never be enough to be sure you will get a good shirt not to say a jacket or suit. You may, or you may not. At least in Singapore, I can fit to death before I commit. But BKK tailors have their advantages also, when you hit a good one, you save alot of money but as I said, its hit and run, you will never able to expect consistent quality all the time from the same tailor but well this is only my own experience hehe.

You've got your points, but that is why it is essential to keep to a good tailor once you find one. Keep changing tailors and you'll find yourself in a rut because you have to start from scratch again. At least with one consistent tailor, at the first fit every time you come back (if they are not "perfect"), they will be much closer to getting it 100% right because the measurements they have of yours are nearly correct from the start. I used to think shopping around is fun, but then the pain of having to get the fit right beat off the new new stores. Find 1 - maybe 2 that you like and I think it makes life much easier!

Jordan Chang 17-10-2012 10:36 AM

i agree. with shirts, 1-2 fittings should be enough and will satisfy most ppl who go there for 3-4 days. for the same reason, i nvr do any suits there, despite promises to turn around in 24 hrs. :s8:

however, if prices keep increasing, there may be less incentive to tailor there.

Can I know the average price to tailor a shirt there now? I'm reading like on average around 2000baht per shirt. That around SGD80...

That pretty expensive and 1 can actually get a shirt tailored here at $80.

Is there any decent tailor that is around SGD 50-65 range in BKK? I'm hoping to tailor 5 shirts there this coming end of Oct.

It all boils down to fabric. The $80 shirt you get here may or may not be a 2-ply cotton. Please refer to my previous posts on my trip to TOT. Don't expect to find a $50 2-ply egyptian cotton shirt in BKK and even if you do, you know who to stay away from. Prices range from 800baht all the way up to 2-3k baht, that's based on a general consensus after gathering users' feedback from other tailors.

Nope, it's not at Amari Watergate hotel. I've been hearing many things about Paul at Amari but some of his reviews have not been great. Personally I've never tried so I can't comment much. Head to Sukhumvit Soi 8 and you will see yourself overwhelmed with choice. If you do want to check out TOT, turn into Soi 8 and walk ALL the way towards the end of the alley. You will see a small black signboard on your left. Shouldn't miss it.

Hi! I'll be going to bangkok this nov and I'll be there for 1.5 weeks. Is that enough to have a suit made? And how much will it cost on average?

tenz1204 17-10-2012 05:14 PM

Before you reach TOT, you will see crown on your way. Crown has a red sign board which you won't miss too. The other side at soi 11 also has tailors. I frequent one named Patricks fashionway. Price is slightly more expensive than crown but cheaper than TOT. I have been to these 3 tailors. So far ok.

Hey I think Crown and TOT are very similarly priced, 1000thb for a blended shirt. How much is it at Patricks fashionway? I know the 2 ply shirts are cheaper at TOT.....by the way does anyone know if anyone sells cotton ties? Not the polyester ones that everyone sells but cotton?

tenz1204 17-10-2012 07:21 PM

Patricks sells from 1200 upwards. TOT 1000 range is quite limited. I like theirs TOT from 1700 and those 2200 but quite ex to me.
