Tailor skills = just copy the measurement, lol, yet my orders got wrong, not going to visit paul again, but maybe i am just unlucky, as they are rushing many orders..

Notice a lot of tailors you guys recommend all @ Asoke or Nana area.

Any nearer to Siam Paragon side of town?
TOTs is out of question considering its too pricy for me.
Looking at THB1000/shirt type of pricing.

volley05 23-11-2016 10:56 AM

i just returned from BKK last weekend and did 5 shirts at 1.5k baht per shirt and 2 pants at 2k baht per pants with Jesse and Son. although the shirt was their basic cotton shirt and their so called lower tiered since they have also 1.8k, 2k and 2.3k baht shirts, i was very impressed with the quality once i went for the first fitting. fitting was almost right and you could feel quality in the material of the shirt. after 2nd fitting, it was near perfect and they would then take some time to "clean" up the shirt. the experience was brilliant too with Manop being super detailed in his work and the hospitality provided from them was different class.
i am a definite returning customer after this wonderful experience.

has anyone bought Kaleidoscope fabric (CEO range, 3000 THB) from crown before? is it good? for 3000 you could get Soktas fabric from J&S!

Don't think there is any worthwhile tailor in Siam Paragon side as that area mostly got readymade branded clothes. Most of the good tailors are located in Asoke or Nana area and some at Pratunam. Considering the price range you are looking at, you can visit Jhasper Fashion and Crown.

1000 baht budget is a little low. Pinky tailor is at ploenchit, 2 stations from siam but cheapest fabrics are 1500 baht.

Seems like not cheap anymore. 1500 is 60sg. We can get the same price here in sg .

I'm reading pants are like 3000 .

The last I went was more then 6 years back, didn't remember prices being so ex.

Yup, pants at pinky are 2500 baht upwards. That's about sgd 100 and not even the most ex fabric range. Zara is sometimes cheaper just that not custom made.

Price of shirts are still generally reasonable imo, if you're not making at tot. Pinky has 1800 and 2000 baht ones as well but 1500 baht one is good enough.

Just made 2 pants (1500 ea, 'supposedly from the 1600 range which I think it's horse sh$t') and 1 shirt (1000).

Yesterday Fri morning ordered, fitting was this Sat morning and was ok. Delivered to my hotel tonight. Fast service.

Would I recommend Boss? Honestly dunno. I think this pricing of ranges is very subjective and basically all tagged to the margins which shop wants. The tailoring sweatshops r all the same. It's the Indian/Pakistani chaps that determine a good fit or not. And it's up to u if you wanna pay 1600 or 3000 for good fitting and a friendly aka good salesman.

Usually the cheaper range is not 100% cotton and easier to iron. When selecting the fabric, you can also "test" by grabbing a small area of the fabric and crumpling it, those that crease easily and likely to be harder to iron.

I have similar sentiments after making my first tailored suit at Boss Avenue.

Prices are cheap imo and my previous experience have been on tailoring pants in SG.

Tl:dr Summary
In summary, I did a 2 piece suit (blazer and pants, no vest) with 30% wool blend material and 2 pants in the same category of 30% wool blend.

Breakdown of costs are:
Suit = $7,400 baht
Pants = $1,600 baht each (I made 2)

Total damage is $10,600 baht

What was unsatisfactory were the buttons on the waist. Told them specific instructions but it was not followed and issues were not rectified. Not exactly something that completely affects the fitting but it is a preference and I felt since tailoring, such details matters.

Dun get me wrong, I'm not slamming Boss. It's just my personal opinion bout this 'must tailor' approach when in BKK. You basically pay for what you get. Prices ain't that reasonable if you take a step back and not compare prices vis to vis diff tailors. It's the same sewing sweatshop.

The guy that delivers my pants to the shop has got more than one package on his route. Hahaha...

This I agree. I also noticed that. It's these guys taking orders, sending it to a factory to get it done.

My personal view is that overall the experience was ok with Boss. Not exactly top notch but not completely lousy. It is a good in-between.

Just that when my pants came with something that I didn't want and something that was supposed to be there, it made it less pleasant to me.

Did a total of 9 shirts + 2 pants with Boss Avenue.

As usual, top-notch service. I think that they are the most reasonable pricing-to-quality tailor in BKK. Everybody has their preference, however I think that based on the amount of patterns and quality, Boss Avenue offers the widest genre.

Been tailoring with Boss Avenue from 2013 and have never ever considered changing tailor. Always feel comfortable and at home with them. Had some issues about delivery with them previously, but all has been resolved.

My friend who was with me, did 1 two-piece suit and 4 shirts. He loved the end-products.

Overall rating for Boss in my opinion: 5/5

Definitely not all. But i believe its shared resources. Anyway, its my opinion.

Yep the delivery person is somewhat a courier person.

This case I think is really YMMV situation. I don't consider Boss Avenue service to be top-notch. Average at most.

I just wore the pants made by them and then realised they did not fix the problem I told them, which again, is not exactly a big issue but it defeat the purpose of tailoring. I requested for inner pockets for the pants.

This particular piece came without it when I was trying it on 1 day prior to delivery. Today when I wear it, I realised they did not resolve it at all.

I tailor my pants locally at one of the tailors in Lucky Plaza. They are not the high-end type but the very least, so far after doing close to 20 pants with the local tailor, no such issues that I experienced with Boss Avenue.

I also noticed the way the pants are being done, this pair that have missing inner pockets was different with the other pair I ordered. Maybe from different factories

Just my luck perhaps.

Understand bro, I think maybe you are more particular with regards to certain aspects of the pants you tailoring. Think that maybe when you are there, you can perhaps highlight this to them so that they will make special note...
This is assuming if you are going to patronizing them again lah of course :)

Service they quite brother brother leh...only have time delivery issues previously, other than that all is good!

DRbeebeebeejay 29-11-2016 06:39 PM

I feel that Boss avenue is very good for its prices. But is it good quality tailoring? Probably not. I only use them for "trial and error" special commissions that I do not foresee myself wearing often.

Definitely not the case but just to elaborate. Garments such as shirts with wing tip collars or tab collars, suits with unique designs (double breast) etc.

Yea bro, most of the plains I have are all dark colours... Navy blue, black, maroon.. Only did 3 white shirts from boss so far in my years with them.. (Some white got pattern, light light one...)

For checkered don't need Match with complicated innards, just put plain colour can.. For plain I like to match with their floral or bubble designs.. Lol. Can memorize by heart on the types of style they have.

Just to add, Manop is gonna be selling Goodyear Welt shoes mid Dec onwards. Thai leather. Just need to check out his lasts and type of designs.
5k Baht if I ain't wrong.

That's what I do understand. I find leather shoes in Bangkok a little too pricey as compared to Singapore. :s13:

For goodyear welt shoes at 200sgd from Manop it's a damn good deal. Can't get that price anywhere in sg.
Clarks and such in bkk are priced like 150sgd onwards.
Well anything imported gets imposed 30% tax.. But Thai leathers are pretty much decent.
Otherwise, Don's Footwear is quality but price differs to each model. London Brown not too bad for casual shoes.

Not an expert in Bkk.. Only travel there couple of times a year for work.

Hope you're able to find a decent leather shoes there man. Cheers!

With the ability to customise and goodyear welt. Then yes. Best deal and best bang for your bucks.
Plus the fact that J&S are honest as it gets in bkk about their products.

CeSaRiO 07-12-2016 03:43 PM

I think we also need to manage our own expectations on the idea of crumpled shirts.

Usually mixed blend, especially with high percentage of polyester, is indeed much easier to iron. Those sets I've gotten from Boss Avenue for 1000 baht, those shirts are the easiest to iron, yet the roughest materials for my highly sensitive skin.

If you want your shirt to crease lesser, or less crumpled, wear it a little tighter. :D

Remember, want good stuffs, aside from price, also need to put in more effort ya :)

Hi Guys,

Read thru the last few pages and notice that the recommended tailors are not at pratunam area but are not that far too (Boss, J&S etc).

However, im looking for a reasonable and good tailor at Pratunam area over the weekends just to make some business shirt and pants.

Any to recommend?

I've only been to Paul's fashion.

Thanks!
