The tailoring experience in Bangkok Reviews
Excelsior Tailor Inexpensive tailor experience in Bangkok Oct 23, 2008
Bangkok has an absolute army of tailors, and the city is rightly famed for being able to stitch-up top quality suits, at bottom dollar prices. The best Bangkok tailors range from backstreet dives to fine boutiques in five-star hotels,
After staying over 5 years in Bangkok few tips for visiting Bangkok tailors would be:-
Don't fall for cheap packages or special deals advertised in glossy brochures advertising a suit, a pair of trousers and two shirts for, say, US$ 95. Chances are good you'll end up paying much more than what you wanted to and having to settle for inferior quality if that is available for the price.
If you don't know where to go, your hotel should be able to give you a few pointers. Many of the bigger hotels also have a reliable, good quality service on the premises for tailor-made clothing.
To save time and energy, and if you have a specific design in mind, make sure you arrive at the tailor's equipped with something for them to copy.
Unless you really don't have anything to wear or are pressed for time, the ready-in-24-hours option should be avoided. Bear in mind that proper tailoring does require time and patience to ensure desirable results.
Expect at least two to three fittings (the first to take your measurements, and one or two fitting sessions) to get your suit looking just the way you want it.
Excelsior being famous amongst my work people so i usually get suits done there.
Excelsior may not receive the publicity of some of its more PR driven competitors, but they remain a firm favorite amongst the Bangkok expats and locals alike. The Bangkok expats are a demanding lot and will easily take their money elsewhere, the fact that so many choose to keep their custom with Excelsior is testament to the reliable and consistent service they offer.
