Summary:

No hassle, quick measurements taken for my suit and shirt; Great location next to Platinum Fashion Mall; Friendly Service and Great package prices for suit, shirts and pants. Paul's Fashion is Highly Recommended by PassportChop.com if you are looking to do some custom tailoring.

There are lots of tailor shops in Bangkok but you can expect a huge variance in quality and prices for the same tailor-made shirt. Avoid those which rely on dishonest taxi or tuk-tuk drivers to bring unsuspecting customers to their shops. The premium you are paying for your shirts/suits will most likely go to their commissions.

If in doubt, check out forums and word-of-mouth referrals for good honest tailors e.g we found Paul’s Fashion through a referral from a friend. Paul’s Fashion is located in Amari Watergate Hotel, just opposite the popular fashion mall – Platinum Mall and beside another popular shopping haunt – Pratunam Market. The Paul’s Fashion is now run by Mr Mike Gulati whose father, Paul started the shop here 13 years ago. As Paul’s Fashion reputation for good workmanship and reasonable price grew, so did competitors who set up shop just opposite Paul’s Fashion. When we visited the Paul’s Fashion, we counted at least 4 other tailor shops around it on the same level of Amari Watergate Hotel – one of which was only just open for a week!

Paul's Fashion Bangkok Tailor Made Suit Amari Watergate Hotel

Not sure whether you want single breasted suit with one/two/three buttons or a double breasted suit or whether to get a Napolean or Button Down collar? There are lots of references available from magazines and books in the shop and ask Ram, the shop manager who can provide you with recommendations on what’s suitable for your body type.

There is also little hassle in making a custom suit and shirt. Ram noted down my preferences for cloth quality and design and made the necessary measurements within an hour during my first visit. I came back the next day for a quick 30-minute fitting (which explains the makeshift suit in the picture above). With Platinum Mall just across the street, we will have to come back for more shopping anyway so it wasn’t a hassle returning for the fitting session. Paul’s Fashion then delivered the custom-made suit and shirts the next day evening (suit, 3 shirts and 2 pants all tailor-made in less than 3 days).

If you are looking for good quality workmanship at reasonable prices, you can check out Paul’s Fashion. They offer a special package exclusively for Singaporeans – for 7900 Thai Baht, you will get this set: 1 suit (comes with 1 trouser) + 1 extra trouser + 2 shirts + 2 ties. Tell them that you are referred by PassportChop.com and you will get an additional 10% discount on your purchase. Don’t worry, PassportChop.com does not take a single cent from such purchases. :-)

Update (19 March 2013): New package available at Paul’s Fashion – 3 Shirts and 2 Trousers at 4999 Thai Baht Sorry, this promotion is no longer available!

Hi,

I will be in Bangkok from 22-27 May. I am looking at getting some tailoring services done:
1. Altering the length of my suit jacket sleeves by about 1 inch
2. Getting a charcoal pants to match one of my existing jacket
3. Getting a new navy suit (jacket and pants)
4. Getting some matching pocket squares

Can I get a rough idea on how much it might cost and how long it might take? Would love to hear a favourable response from you soon. Thank you in advance!

Cheers
