After coming down from Skytrain, go to exit 1/2. turn right to go down to streets. once you come down and make a u-turn on the street, you can see a versace tailor at the corner, cross the small lane to go to Boss Avenue.

they should tailor anything. as to whether silk or cotton, that should be up to your choice. the material is you choose, they just sew it together for you.

if you wanna confirm, can try emailing them or call them. i know boss avenue and crown tailor got email.

anyway not sure how much the labour....
normally we do 80/20 cotton shirt as 100% one get crimpled easily

I'm asking as i already have Acorn super 120 sea island cotton fabric and
Kid mohair wool on hand for my shirt and pants. I rather bring my own fabric then risk the fact that Narin might not have a equivalent quality material in his shop, with the same pricing fabric in mind.

Some tailors take pride in the materials they carry. I am not sure whether they will take your fabric especially Narin is quite well known.

After reading this thread and the comments from many, decided to visit Crown Tailor this trip and Lop (Sam's staff, Sam and Mana are in Canada now) was kind enough to extend the operating hours to wait for me.

Lop had been paitent and attentive to my request and i decided to make 2 L/S shirts and a pants for THB4000.00 on wednesday night just to try out.

Went for fitting earlier and am very pleased with their worksmanship, just like many had mentioned. although slightly more pricy, but the quality is good.

Thus, decided to top up my order for another 2 L/S shirts and a pants...suming my total spending to THB8000.00.

Luckily will be meeting my friend, who will be arriving BKK in the evening, else will have not much cash left to spend the rest of the weekends! :D

sneggg 05-04-2011 11:08 PM

No bro, go there they measure for u. Do note that u will probably need 1 or 2 fittings. So don't go too far from yr tailor or it can be a hassle to travel back for fitting.

My trip only 4d3n. Touchdown check in hotel 4.30pm liao then rush go tailor.
Next day 5.30pm 1st fit, 3rd day 4.30pm 2nd fit. Last day receive liao.

Price depends on wat u pick and where u go. I think crown adds extra for collars and stuff. Boss flat fee. Like wat bro condor says, boss gives all shirts flat felled seams. Really more comfortable. Boss price is B850 unless u pick their more pricy stuff which i think is B1000.

well, then i think you should try making 2 at crown and another 2 at boss.

that way, you will know which feels better to you.

i guess different tailors will also have different cloth material. so that may be a consideration too.

material is the same for my "test"
crown charge 1200b for shirt but boss 850b, same material only different is colour
but finishing/initiative crown is better...but for layman I guess cannot tell much different

so which would you recommend then? if slight variance, then might as well go for the B850?

tekster 09-04-2011 05:49 PM

are all tailored pants so well designed? felt that mine was terrific. got anti-slip pads and double buttons on the front.

Double buttons. if 1 fails, still got backup.

Pants with white anti-slip pads

the pants were made together as a suit. suit price about B4300.

If I recall correctly, pants should be B1250.

i made about B14600 worth (after discount), got slight discount lo.

tian1031cai 11-04-2011 10:00 AM

i think tailoring female dresses will be an issue. might be tough and probably needs more fittings. think you better email them to check.

i think shouldn't be an issue for them. formal blazers are harder to make than casual blazers ba.

haha, i think in general when u mentioned 'tailor made shirts', the initial response i get is, 'wa so rich go tailor clothes'. nobody bothered to ask me how much. so I'm quite happy w my shirts though they cost the same off-the-rack.

yup, i also prefer quantity. at B850, it definitely gave me some ego boost.

nope, never go above B1250. besides, i think i made quite a number, so dave gave some discount.

Actually no need to be super cheap. As long as reasonable, the workmanship of the tailor is the most important criteria followed by his good recommendation of cloth.

This factor is the hardest to find among tailors.:D

i only been to Boss. so i recommend Boss lo. haha...

others also recommend Crown. These 2 are fairly nearby each other.

hope you are there for 4d3n, else not much time for fitting. upon touchdown and after check in, you gotta rush to the tailor liao. best is if you can be at the tailor by 12pm. i made a mistake by taking 12pm flight, reach the tailor at 4.30pm. not much time.

sneggg 18-04-2011 09:29 AM

hey tekster do you know how to go to crown ? roughly will do..1st time gg also
