Making A Tuxedo In Bangkok

Hi People,

Bangkok is famous for getting tailored suits/tuxedo made. Can anyone recommend a good tailor for tuxedos (affordable price too) to go to? Has anyone made tuxedos before in Bangkok?

Please advise.

just used Gulati tailors which was strongly recommend by local Indians here. He's on Soi 3 corner. Made some shirts and we were very happy. Irrespective of what people on TA might say our experience with Sam Gulati was good

Hey AnishQuenim, how come you used an Indian tailor in Bangkok and not just used one back home in India ?

Most Bangkok tailors are only front with the tailoring being done in factories, the quality of work is often at best mediocre and many many people leave with a very negative experience.

Generaly speaking 'you get what you pay for' applies to tailoring in Thailand as it does anywhere and good quality tailoring will cost you very similar to what it would at home so by and larger not worth wasting your holiday time fretting about getting a tux made.

Hi Dodger - he was highly recommended by friends (not KS) so we went. The shirt cost the same as buying a ready made one in India so thought this was a better deal. All in all very happy

Dont they sell ready made tuxedos in Singapore? Plus Singapore does have tailors. You can have cheap stuff just like in Thailand, you can have quality for a higher price, just like in Thailand. At least in SIN you have time for fittings. A tux takes time to make.
