Hello TripAdvisor Experts,
I am coming to Thailand in the beginning of August for 3 weeks. The broad itinerary is Chiang Mai, Bangkok and sunny beach excursions (your tips on quiet, dry, beautiful beaches in August are welcome). While in Bangkok I would like to get a suit with 2 pants and perhaps some shirts. Ideally, I would get a first fitting/sizing on my first 3 days in Bangkok, and then maybe 2nd fitting when I come back for my flight out. There are clearly so many amazing tailors to pick from, perhaps you can help me with some guidance on these questions.
Budget: $200 - 325 per suit. Looking for extra pair of paints with the suit and maybe 3 shirts.
On the Short List: Sarto di Moda, Amar the Boss, Crown Tailor, Tom's Fashion, any others...????
1. Do certain shops specialize in higher quality suit construction (e.g. full canvas) and more modern cuts (e.g. softer shoulders, high armholes). Does full canvas cost extra?
2. How can I make the fitting and selection most efficient in terms of fabric selection, design and fitting? I might bring my button down shirt to show how I like my shirts, and perhaps give a sense of the suit.
3. Are there any negotiation or logistics matters I should be aware of ahead of time?
Any other tips?
