hi guys I know there are a few tailors around but has anyone made a suit before and any good or bad experiences? I looked online and AMAA fashion seems to have good reviews on the internet. its a bit far from Walking Street and my hotel though. any other suggestions?

Been buying from him for near ten years.  Always happy with the results.  Tell him what you want before you negotiate a price, he's not a tout but there is a limit to what anyone can do if you are looking to go real cheap.

 

I wear my suits daily, am on my feet and moving all the time in a smokey environment (casino).  I have some suits that are 9 years old and still in good shape.  His shirts are just as good.  I have some that are still like new after 4 years of weekly iron/starch.  My off the rack, US$300+ suits don't last as long.

 

Shirts are very nice but if you are from the USA and have access to TJ Max or whatever, the shirts are not such a good deal, even though they last longer.  Still nice to have a few custom shirts though.

 

Discuss the liner and all options you want up front.  Give yourself plenty of time to make changes, etc. before you go home.

 

If you are like me, and tend to fluctuate your weight, take that into consideration.  Gaining 5 pounds in an off the rack suit is not the same as gaining 5 pounds in one of his suits, it will get real snug unless you tell him to make it a bit looser fit.  On the contrary, if you are on the high side, have him make it snug or the reverse happens.

 

Yes, he owns the shop and measures, the suits are assembled someplace else and the final fittings are done by someone else.

 

Backround, he is Indian, but 1st generation born in Thailand.  He travels to the US and Europe takes orders from customers and ships suits.  He has been to the US and met me here for orders.  Not that it matters except to prove that he is not a tout or a conman.

 

Just to give you an idea, this years order was 7 suits and 5 shirts for about US$1100  I think the shirts ran about $30 and the suits about 130 give or take a few bucks.  I've been a regular customer for years so I'm not sure if this is normal or not for someone coming in off the street.

 

It's funny, I get whatever cut is in fashion (without going to extremes) and I can wear the exact same cut, but different color five days in a row.  One day I will get all sorts of compliments from the girls at work, telling me how great the suit fits and looks, the next, nothing....I guess, to a point, it's all about the ties and colors.  lol

 

Again, I wear my suits daily and they get abused.  When buying something for a special occasion,  you might want to spend more.  YMMV.

 

Feel free to PM me if you want more info.

Whenever I walk passed the shops in Patts and look in the windows I never see a suit I would be comfortable wearing in the City of London. They all look a bit odd to me.

Prano Soi 2 (beach rd end) - speak to Johnny. I've had 4-5 from there since 2006. the fact that he relies entirely on walk in trade without using the standard irritating street salesman speaks volumes for me

I know exactly what you mean.  In addition to the look being somewhat off, in many cases the fit is not right either.  Over the years, I have purchased a number of items from Pattaya tailors and just about everything has been shipped to the SO's village in Issan.  Now when I need decent clothes, I either go to Central, Bangkok or just order them from Brooks Brothers in the U.S.  Not a fan of the tailors in Pattaya.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
