    Tailor question

    Dear TD friends,

    Next month I have the luck to be back in Thailand. 8th time, but the first time on business, so the boss is paying. I have to work though, so every silver lining has a cloud. I know it's a pretty lame question, but most threads on this subject are quite old, so I post it again.

    Our carnival band has it's own uniforms made from specially made fabric. I'm planning to take a couple of metres of the stuff with me on the trip and have a suit made out of it. Could anyone advice me on a good tailor not too far from the Conrad Bangkok hotel on wireless road.

    Thanks,

    Hans

    yeah there's about 500 Indian tailors down there.
    not too sure who's the best but I'm sure once there you'll get a feel for who's good n who's not.

    Go to the Indian tailor who has a shop inside the Novotel Siam Square. His name is Bob. Does a great job and keeps the cost down. At least he did for me.

    Possibly the collection of the best tailors in BKK are side by side on Sukhumvit rd between the Landsmark hotel and soi 4 - the nanna bar soi.
    Get the skytrain to Nanna and walk back towards wireless rd about 100m
    Rajawongse has a good reputation if you can spare the time to do the 4 fittings.

    So this is a spam thread by someone who has a tailors shop?

    Is nothing sacred any more?

    Two types, ones that stand out the front and try and drum up business because they are rubbish.

    The others are busy because they are good, and dont use touts.

    It's just that I never thought anyone on Teakdoor was classy enough to invest in real bonafide tailor made suits.............
