On visiting Thailand my boyfriend was keen to get a tailored suit made. We had been recommended a tailor by our rep which was a couple of beaches away, but wandering down the beach front that night we found Star Fashion. We decided to pop in just to get an idea of price. My boyfriend explained what he wanted and the tailor showed us some materials. All the fabrics were beautiful, amazing quality and available in many colours. My boyfriend advised the tailor that demise of his last few suits had been due to wearing in the crotch. The tailor advised us why this happens and suggested a spare pair of trousers be made for each suit. We got a quote for 2 suits, each with 2 pairs of trousers, all in gorgeous cashmere material, and one shirt. He quoted us a fantastic price and we decided to go with him then and there. The service was so friendly, he knew what he was talking about and the price wasn't far off what you'd pay for just one Debenhams / M&S suit at home!
The first night he measured my boyfriend up and took a small deposit. Having been measured for tailored suits myself, I was impressed with how thorough he was with all the measurements - possibly why my suits still don't fit me to this day!
He told us we could come back for a first fitting the next day, which shows how quickly he can turn things around for people in a hurry. At the second fitting my boyfriend tried on the shirt and trousers which were almost finished, and the jacket which sort of looked like a waistcoat at this point! Again, he thoroughly measured them to make sure everything was just right.
We came back for the final time and the suits and shirt were finished. My boyfriend tried them all on and I can honestly say I've never seen anything fit him so well! The suits sat perfectly on his frame and the quality of the material really showed. The lining was amazing with no exposed stitching - a real professional job!
All in all we experienced excellent service from a friendly and helpful tailor and paid an incredible price for 2 top quality suits. The tailor even gave us his card and advised he'd keep measurements on file, in case we ever fancied more shirts or suits. I will definitely be emailing him to make more for Christmases and birthdays as the fit is incredible!
Panwa is one of the quieter areas but don't be fooled into going somewhere bigger. Having purchased tailored suits elsewhere in Thailand before of poorer quality and a higher price, I cannot speak highly enough of Star Fashion and would 100% recommend anyone looking for tailored items pay it a visit! You will not be disappointed.
On a separate note, the same company own an Indian restaurant 2 doors up which is definitely worth a visit. But wait until after you've been measured!
