Summary:

Good workmanship, Service was fast and efficient (staff was friendly and patient), Location was great (just opposite Platinum Mall).

During our recent visit to Bangkok, we decided to check out Alex’s Fashion at Amari Watergate Hotel to tailor a few custom-made shirts and pants. Alex’s Fashion came highly recommended from a number of Singapore forums e.g. Hardwarezone as well as Flyertalk and other Australian forums. We just had to see how good is it (in terms of workmanship and service) for ourselves.

The shop manager Peter is the son of the founder Alex (namesake of Alex’s Fashion). Alex was one of the first to set up a tailor shop at Amari Watergate Hotel and Peter had been working in this business under his father’s guidance for the past 18 years. Peter is indeed very experienced in this trade – he is able to make good recommendations of what design and fabric is suitable for different body shape or occasions. The shop also boasts a great selection of fabrics and you can customise your inner collars and your cuffs with different designs. There are pictures and sample shirts readily available for you to make a quick decision.

Our personal experience with Alex’s Fashion was a great one – Peter and his staff were very patient in explaining the various design and fabric that we could choose from; the samples really helped us in deciding on the designs we wanted.

We did 3 shirts and 2 pants – the process was simple and quick. Peter discussed with me my requirements for the shirts and pants’ fabric and designs; Peter’s staff took my measurements and we are done in 30 minutes! We came back for a fitting 2 days later – I tried the shirts and pants and fedback on how to adjust them to make the pants more comfortable (this took less than 15 minutes). This is not a hassle since we are doing some shopping at Platinum Mall (just across the road from Amari Watergate hotel). The end-result? – The workmanship is of quite good quality and the shirts and pants are very comfortable!

There were quite a lot of Singaporeans doing their shirts and suits when we were there and this is not surprising considering that there is an Alex’s Fashion promotion for Singaporeans i.e. S$362 (or 8500 Thai baht) for 1 jacket, 2 pants, 4 shirts and 2 ties.

If you just want to do custom-made shirts, you can consider this package:
S$221 (or 5200 Thai baht) for 3 shirts and 2 pants – updated as of 15 May 2013

There are packages for different combination of shirts, pants and jackets. Check in-store for the Singaporean package or download this document for reference -> Alex’s Fashion Bangkok Tailor Price List (updated as of 16 November 2013)

Alex’s Fashion also comes to Singapore regularly to do custom fitting and tailoring – if you like their work, request to be placed on their mailing or Whatsapp list. Alex can be contacted via Viber and ChatOn – they are having some technical difficulties with Whatsapp now.

Do note that there are quite a number of tailor shops in Bangkok that are also called “Alex Fashion” an their websites are also similarly named.

I just got back from BKK and had 4 shirts and 1 pants done – paid 4,600 baht as advertised on the price list. Went back twice for fittings which I see as the mark of a good and responsible tailor to ensure the clothes fit well.

My only gripe is that one of the shirts I had asked for to be made short sleeved came back with long sleeves. Did not check when I collected the clothes as I was rushing to the airport… only realised when I got back to Singapore. So please check when you collect!

Overall satisfied with the results and will be going back there in the future and probably when they visit Singapore as well.

Hi John,

You are right must check b4 collecting, but anyways it can be altered to short sleeve, if any friend or colleague visiting bangkok, u can pass it to us and mention how many inch sleeve length u want, we can do it in 6 hours on working days. Or u can pass us on our next trip to Singapore, we are most probably coming for a service trip either end September or early October. Do send me email reminder by 10th September should have the dates by then. Please note this trip is only delivery, service and fitting trip. New orders will be end November or early December.

BR,
Peter
