The Best Tailors in Bangkok

By

With so many tailors in Bangkok it can be hard to separate the good ones from the bad. Here’s a list of four very highly recommended Bangkok tailors. Pinky Tailors and Cotton House do custom women’s clothing, something many of the best Bangkok tailors don’t do (I guess they’re too busy making men’s suits).  None of these four cater to the shoe-string budget crowd so you won’t find any $99 specials at any of them, but they all have fair, reasonable prices and do high-quality work.


1. N and K Pinky Tailors

The shop is tucked into a quiet little mall next to the Ploenchit Skytrain station, but Pinky does a bustling business serving the city's diplomats. Pinky also does women's clothes

  • Hours: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday

 

2. Raja's Fashions

The big, comfortable shop on Soi 4 has plenty of material to choose from and Raja's is known for excellent fittings and finish work.

3. Cotton House

Cotton House excels at fine women's clothing and is just behind the Oriental Hotel.

4. Rajawongse Clothiers

Don't be fooled by the mediocre looking store-front on busy Sukhumvit Road. Run by a friendly father and son team, Rajawongse Clothiers does excellent work and is often visited by celebrities and foreign dignitaries.
