    Best area for (basic) clothes shopping in BKK?

    I'll be in BKK next week and I am planning travelling with next to nothing clothes-wise (underwear & string vest on plane etc), and buying all clothes in LOS.

    I will mainly be buying t-shirts, casual shirts and jeans/trousers so where is my best bet?

    If memory serves me right Pratunam is where it's at, but I also have some t-shirts I bought in KSR/Banglampu for cheap 5 years ago that I still wear around the house!

    I only have 3 nights in BKK so I will maybe book the hotel for Pratunam?

    KSR for bigger sizes if you're a fat kunt like Jizzy (there's also an place called XL near Nasa Vegas on Ramkangheng).

    Pratuman for those of us who are still svelte.

    Really? I have only seen books and earrings and Thai souvenirs for sale on KSR. Any specifics?

    Clothes stalls/shops, but I think you may struggle to find something that'll fit around that neck of yours (apart from a pair of legs).

    Pratunam as already mentioned (Platinum Mall has 6 levels of fashion/shoes/accessories shops).
    JJ Market is another option, probably a bit more pricey though.
    For really cheap stuff try Bobeh Market which is a wholesale place where a lot of Thai vendors get their supplies from.
