Tailored Suit Bangkok
Having a suit custom made has always been one of those things I’d always wanted to do. Not that I wear suits often, but if the clothes make the man? Then a handmade suit is just the ticket. The cost of a custom suit back in The States was a price I couldn’t justify but with another trip landing me in Bangkok I couldn’t let this opportunity pass me by again.
If you have walked the streets in this wonderful city as a “farang” you certainly have been targeted by the sidewalk pitchmen outside the many clothing shops. I was oblivious as to what constitutes good fabric and craftsmanship so I took to Google to research stores and spoke to a few expats in the city as well. After a sufficient amount of questions, Crown Tailor seemed to fit my expectations.
I walked into Crown and knew this was going to be a fun experience. I was greeted by a friendly salesman and I explained that I was looking to purchase my first, made-for-me suit along with a custom shirt. The salesman showed me the wide range of fabrics and the cost breakdown. I settled on what was considered the (“rookie” package). Not on the high end of fine wool, but again I am not a suit guy and I AM a rookie! I picked out a dark grey fabric for the suit and a medium blue for the shirt. Once the fabrics were chosen they began taking all my measurements. After this, we setup a second appointment for the fitting the next day.
