Bangkok Alex’s Fashion Tailor at Amari Watergate Hotel

3 December, 2012

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$380 for 1 jacket, 2 pants, 3 shirts.

If you just want to do custom-made shirts, you can consider this package:
S$235 for 3 shirts and 2 pants – updated as of 9 November 2014

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 10 Jan 2015)

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.

The following are the actual Amari Watergate Hotel Alex’s Fashion website and facebook page:
http://alex-fashions.com/
https://www.facebook.com/AlexsFashion

At Alex’s Fashion facebook page, you can private message them to make appointments, see new designs for suit and shirt and also see when they are next coming down to Singapore for orders.

To reach Alex’s Fashion:
Amari Watergate Hotel – 3rd floor by lift. From the Amari Watergate Hotel lobby, take the escalator to the second floor; once you reach the second floor, you will see a cluster of tailor shops – Alex’s Fashion is on your right (not the first shop).

You can contact Peter of Alex’s Fashion at
Tel: (+662) 6539124 Mobile (+668) 98971210
E-Mail: [email protected]

The shop is open Monday – Saturday 10 AM – 8 PM, Sunday 11 AM-3 PM.

    Hi Zhiqiang & Tingyi,

    Tailored suits made by a Bangkok custom tailor is wise choice because you are assured with high quality suit that will definitely fit your experience. Bangkok tailors are well known for producing tailored suits which are highly demand in the market with outfit fashion.

    Hi, will like to know if Paul’s Fashion or Alex’s Fashion is better?

    Is the discount code for both still valid? 🙂

    • Zhiqiang & TingyiReply

      9 December, 2012 at 10:54 pm

      In my opinion – what’s most important to me when i tailor clothes is (1) the service provided e.g. whether I can communicate well with the shop owner/tailor and whether he understands my needs; (2) the availability of the fabric, colors, patterns that I want for my clothes.

      Both Paul’s Fashion and Alex’s Fashion have been able to do that for me very well. I suggest that you check out both shops and gauge for yourself the level of the service from them and their selection of cloth that can fit your needs – then make a decision based on these points (and any of your own points). Their prices are comparable too – Paul’s Fashion offer stated in my post about them still stands.

      Sorry, looks like you have earlier been recomending Paul Fashion and as of December you have been recomending Alex’s Fashions. My friends had clothes made at Alex’s and the staff at Alex’s Fashion’s informed them that you were given free clothes and more $$ to write good about them in your blog. Not very honest Singaporean like leh..

        14 March, 2013 at 11:14 pm

        Hi Anthony – what you have heard from the staff is not true – we were NOT given money to write about Alex’s Fashion; you might want to check your sources first before posting. I had given objective reviews on the tailors based on service, workmanship and fabric selection. No promises of good reviews were made.

    Peter, hope you remember us. We were the group of 4 friends who visited you early January, after you dragged us into your store from the arcade and promised us best quality and price. Despite all my inner inhibitions, we ended up ordering lot of clothing from your store. I can uderstand that you are not too experinced with this work as when we came back during the fitting, all the clothes were either too tight or too loose to have been custom tailored for us. Your staff even mentioned to us that since they were on holiday the day we ordered from you and you being the only one at the store, things went wrong as you have no knowledge about this work. All the same, we were promised new cutting and were remeasured by him and the clothes were then delivered to the reception desk at our hotel. When we arrived late night, we found that the clothes were still very ill fitting and called you up asking you to have someone come over to pick up the clothes for the required adjustments, to which you replied to us that we had to bring them back to the store ourselves as it was not your store policy to repick up the clothes for alterations once they have been delivered.
    I must say we were so disgusted with your service that we just got all the clothes back to Singapore and paid so much more to get them adjusted here itself rather then taking them back to your store.
    I have to be frank and must add that there is no way I am visiting your store ever again and would always warn my friends against using your services.
    Hope this will serve you as a notice to better respect your clients and not take them as fools

    Seriously?? Personally, I would never be visiting your store ever again and would recomend all my friends who are heading over there to avoid your store. Am surprised that Passport Chop has decided to put you in his blog, guess people can do anything for money.

    • Zhiqiang & TingyiReply

      18 April, 2013 at 5:33 pm

      Sharlyne – instead of a general statement that’s not helping anyone know what’s wrong, it will be more useful if you can let Peter know your issues with your service and see how he can deal with it. I am not paid to write this post and this is not an advertisement. This is just a platform for customers to engage Peter directly on the service he provides.

    Hi Peter,

    Thank you for your sharing with me this post. I read the comments and will like give a constructive feedback.

    I think perdorminately it is very hard to find a quality tailor that is able to deliver CYC standard at $40.00+. I think its impossible.

    As a regular and small buyer that buy 2-3 shirts during their trips to Singapore every 3-4 months, I think Mike and Peter have been sincere peeps. I remember during my first two visits, they even replaced my shirts when I didn’t indicated my perference properly from the start because I also dono I have this perference.

    I think they are good, sincere and value for $.

    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.

  • PeterReply

    18 August, 2013 at 11:55 am

    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.

    I was recommended by many Singaporeans about making shirts at Amari Water Gate Hotel but was shocked to see 5 tailors there. However, Alex Fashion stood out to me and lured me in. I was welcomed by friendly staff who offered me drinks while i search fo materials for my new shirts. When i came back the next day, the staff were very meticulous on looking for flaws on the shirt so they make the necessary adjustments. This was pleasantly surprising as other tailors would just say the fit is perfect and to to chase us away.

    i highly recomend this place for tailoring in Bkk.

    Custom is always a better option rather than off the rack. If you go with custom made shirts not only they fit with your body but also they give better presentation of a person because of their custom sizing and styling. Their are many business that are offering online custom designing module to order and design your custom dress shirts
