is a leading destination to purchase precious gifts, and more
particularly jewellery, at actually attractive price. Though gold,
silver and diamonds are not cheaper compared with Western Countries,
the cost of manufacture can be divided by three or four. Designs can
cater all tastes, and individual requests are always welcome for a
tailored-made jewel which will make you so unique! We never visited
Thailand without purchasing at least a small silver ring or a
semi-precious stone (Thailand is a leading producer of sapphires and
the world's largest cutter of coloured stones) from the tempting shops
which you can find everywhere in Bangkok and the rest of the country.
Of course, you need to learn carefully from Internet forums
blogs before spending few or lot of your budget in a lovely jewel.
Never trust tuk-tuk, taxi drivers, “experts” met in the street, nor the
friendly concierge of the most prestigious five star hotel... Also note
that Thai silver jewellery from the hill-tribes of Northern Thailand is
usually replica, and that the most lovely pearls from Phuket are
purchased by prestigious jewellers around the world: those remaining in
Thailand tend to be low quality, when not fake.
PIGUET: Operated by Cortina Watch
in the plush Bangkok
Central Embassy shopping mall, this new, elegant boutique
shows its prestigious collections in a zen-like blond wood, slate grey
PATEK PHILIPPE & Co: From Queen Victoria till Nicolas Sarkozy, connoisseurs and admirers of fine watchmaking acquired at least one model (usually Calatrava) manufactured by this prestigious brand distributed in Thailand by Cortina Watch.
Featuring the most complicated mechanical movements, this Swiss ultra-luxury watchmaker is considered by many experts and aficionados to be, since 1852, one of the most prestigious mainstream brands along with Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin. Out of the 40 – 50,000 models produced every year, lots are purchased by Thai tycoons. Knowing that the most expensive wristwatch ever auctioned was a Patek Philippe yellow gold, perpetual calendar and moonphase produced in 1943 and sold US$5.50 million in May 2010, this sounds definitely like a great investment!
Patek Philippe flagship model is the Calatrava: a line of discreet though amazingly elegant dress watches introduced in 1932. The contemporary Calatrava 5119 and the new collections at Baselworld 2014 are available in the Erawan Cortina Watch Espace, together with other legendary brands like Breguet, Omega, Chopard, and IWC.
Open Monday – Sunday, 10:00– 20:00.
VACHERON CONSTANTIN: Manufacturer of the most expensive diamond wristwatch in the world (model Kallista, worth US$9 millions appreciates in value US$ 4,000 each day!), this Swiss brand caters the rich and famous. Napoleon Bonaparte, Duke of Windsor, Harry Truman and Lady Diana proudly owned a Vacheron Constantin. Josephine Bonaparte invented the wristwatch in 1809, when she asked the oldest watch manufacturer in the world to provide her with a pocket watch attached to a bracelet: so she could wear it on her arm! Historic leaders are imitated nowadays by the most successful Asian entrepreneurs, purchasing this exclusive treasure in the ritzy Pendulum Boutiques at Siam Paragon and Gaysorn Plaza.
François Constantin and Jacques-Barthélémy Vacheron heritage has been well preserved since 1755 by a new generation of watchmakers, manufacturing in Geneva and Vallée de Joux the most complicated movements for the thinnest wristwatch available on the market. Doing the impossible, Vacheron issues since 1955 the world's slimmest mechanical movement at 1.64 millimetres. Introduced in 1996, the Skeleton Minute Repeater, which chimes the hours, quarters and minutes at the press of a button, is 3.28 millimetres (.13 of an inch) thick, the thinnest of its kind made today.
You won't find the Kallista in the Bangkok shop (it can be ordered months -if not years- in advance), but discreetly elegant “Patrimony” and “Traditionnelle” models. The tough “Overseas” will please sportsmen and yachtsmen. Our favourite are the signature “Malte” and “Quai de L'Ile”, fitting a real gentleman's wrist.
Open Monday - Sunday, 11:00 - 19:30.
Pendulum Boutique, Siam Paragon
Like Hong Kong, Thailand is reputed for its custom tailors. With a bonus: this is the country of silk, and hand-made apparels in this material are available for one tenth of the Western price.
More and more tourists, but also businessmen, diplomats and even statesmen are ordering top notch clothes from Thailand. Quality and service improved so much with time -and competition!- that this is not a secret anymore: even the US presidents do not hesitate to visit the best shops (like George Bush Sr and Jr, faithful clients of the top notch Gulati's family boutique), or to schedule a yearly Thai tailors' team visit to the White House (like Barack Obama, ordering his official US$ 10,000 suits to Martin Greenfield, the legendary "presidents' tailor" in Brooklyn, and his more casual US$ 300 jackets and US$ 60 shirts from the excellent Savile Row Fashion House in Bangkok).
Shops are hiring external tailors. Therefore, wherever you go, consider the shopkeeper, even the most professional one... as a shopkeeper. Tell him what you are looking for, and how much you would like to pay. Bargaining is part of the deal; but do not require a dirty cheap rate, as you would receive dirty cheap quality clothes as well ! Serious shopkeepers will do their best to make you understand where is your interest. They will also explain you that if it takes only 2 - 3 days to cut a shirt, you will have to wait at least one week before wearing a classy, carefully designed suit (which can also be shipped free-of-charge to your country). US$ 100 next day delivered suits are scams. Taxi and "tuk-tuk' drivers offering you a lift to the "best tailor" also. You can rely on our reviews, featuring the most established and best valued shops in Bangkok and Thailand.
SAVILE ROW FASHION HOUSE: This award-winning custom tailor, with over 40 years experience, has been servicing clients from around the world (including President Obama!) for 3 generations. Providing top notch quality clothing at very reasonable prices, Savile Row built up its local and international fame from its timeless style and peerless reputation.

TAILOR PRO: This is a well known shopper's tip: tailors established in luxury hotels are among the best in Bangkok, as hoteliers don't want to spoil their reputation with amateurs.

BRIONI: Whether their motive is to look expensive to others or just the inward confirmation that they can afford such a piece of clothing, those who like to show their social status will love to shop in Brioni’s new boutique at Gaysorn Plaza. Sprawled over 1,000 square feet of prime retail space, Bangkok’s latest sartorial destination is one of the largest Brioni boutique in the region, after Singapore. The new concept store was designed in Milan’s fashion district at Via Gesù, and has been replicated across future Brioni boutiques around the world.
Developed by Creative Director Brendan Mullane in collaboration with Studio Park Associati of Milan, sprawling over 100 sq.m2 of prime retail space, the new store concept teams the masculine character of a gentleman’s club with the elegance of a private “Dressing Room”. Conveying a traditional character with a contemporary twist, making use of premium materials, the interior is organized into separate selling areas spanning formal-wear and leisure-wear.
Custom-tailoring is supremely managed in an exclusive VIP room, with an area dedicated to the “Su Misura” service; a refined five star lounge dedicated to the art of bespoke tailoring, furnished with a large closet that opens out to demonstrate the fabrics and finishings used to personalize the garments. Brioni’s made-to-measure jackets and suits have nurtured a cult-following amongst the world's most dapper men: a roll call of which includes icons like Daniel Craig (007 is dressed to kill in a Brioni Vanquish II suit), Al Pacino, Cary Grant, lots of bankers and leading statesmen. Though the fantastic cutting process remains a secret, it has been reported that a Vanquish II suit counts not less than 7,000 stitches, being handled by the tailors team an average of 300 times! Which would justify the price paid by the “elite of the elite” for the most expensive suit in the world, made from rare fibers such as vicuna, pashmina and qiviuk (eight times warmer than wool and finer than cashmere, qiviut is hypoallergenic and will not shrink. ). Price tag is as high as $43,000! Brioni will produce only 150 pieces of this special-edition.
Located in the very top of the luxury hierarchy, Brioni targets the wealthiest 1% to 2% of consumers world-wide. We are not part of it... but still can afford Brioni's beautiful accessories: actually affordable, footwear and small leather goods are displayed in exclusive showcases made of travertine, bronzed glass and brass. A great, highly distinguished present for your friends... or why not, for yourself?

ROW WEDDING BOUTIQUE: Have you ever thought of having your wedding
gown custom made: spoiled and dressed like a royal princess or a movie
star? Moreover in Thailand? Too expensive? Too far? On the contrary;
you would never imagine how many couples
are visiting wedding shops in Bangkok nowadays. This fashion phenomenon
is quite recent, and the business is booming; though few shops, usually
concentrating in Sukhumvit,
are actually 100% reliable.
PRO LEATHER: Discerning users are more and more skipping
brands, even the most famous ones, to acquire premium products.
Legendary biker gangs, like the Hell's Angels, showed the way to the
nowadays elite wishing to exhibit its difference wearing what is
now an emblem: a custom made weather jacket. You can be rich and rebel
at the same time: leaving your Armani suit in your closet for a while,
and wearing a casual yet so-chic James Dean, Arthur Fonzarelli or David
Beckham style calf jacket as a second skin on your well shaped body!
TAILOR & BOUTIQUE: This
high-end tailor has been selling custom made suits in Bangkok for three
generations. Co-owner Pal comes from a long line of clothiers. Pal grew
up in the clothing business: pushing relationships, not sales. His
expert team will work with you from start to finish:
making sure you are comfortable every step of the way. Garments are
guaranteed for life: even if you gain or lose a few pounds, the
alterations are on this honest and reputed tailor.

Shop #176 Sukhumvit Road (Before Sukhumvit Soi 8), Khlongtoey, Bangkok,
doesn't mean low quality and poor service at Tailor 22: a new brand by Tailor Pro, one of the
most acclaimed and oldest custom tailors in Thailand, it targets a
money-conscious though smart clientele, looking for top quality at a
portion of the market price.
How does it work, and where is the trick? The response is that there is
no trick at all: the service is the same, the tailors are those
employed by Tailor Pro, but the fabrics usually come from the last end
rolls which the shop-keeper wants to finish faster to clear his stock.
Do not hesitate, and use this opportunity to fit in nicely designed
apparels cut in appealing imported Italian cottons and Super 100s, or
smooth British tweeds. Tuxedo, shirts, dresses... everything is
possible, as last end rolls don't mean last end choice. Tailor Pro is
one of the most active tailors in Bangkok, and its Tailor 22 branch
discounted stocks never lacks choice nor quality.

amazingly elegant clothes in the most precious fabrics. Reputed for its
iconic, unstructured Kei jacket, the brand is extremely successful in
Bangkok with a trendy shop in high-end Siam
AMBASSADOR & SMART FASHION: Bangkok was not yet a leading capital city of tourism in the 1950's, when this shop already offered premium apparel to the high society in Thailand. One of the most established custom tailors in South East Asia, with a third generation serving clients throughout the entire globe, this is actually one of the best places for fashion coaching: by Paul and his team, gladly assisting you in updating your wardrobe all the time at unbeatable prices.
Nestled in the most prestigious and easy to reach part of Sukhumvit, just 200 meters from Terminal 21 Shopping Mall & Grande Westin Hotel, a 2 minutes walk from Sky Train Station Asoke (exit 1) or Subway Station Sukhumvit (exit 3), the preciously designed, top-luxury showroom makes you feel confident at first sight: a first class venue for first class customers, this temple of refinement and good taste stocks over 1000 prime quality materials: wool, cashmere, silk, linen, Super 100 and Egyptian / Italian / Swiss / Sea Island cotton shall make your choice as exciting as easy. Not a budget but good value for money store, Ambassador & Smart Fashion is achieving the highest possible standard of personal tailoring: quality is optimum, whatever money you are spending on suits, tuxedos, sports jacket, pants, top coats, overcoats and shirts, along with the dresses and blouses for ladies. Hand-made, carefully sewn, adjusted and checked on your body, procuring the feeling of a second skin, they do reflect the impression that you come back from a hefty shopping trip in London or Milan: because Paul is importing his fabrics (easy care, no wrinkles, no fading!) from England and Italy...
A good suit-maker / shirtmaker, whatever your style maybe, won't neglect any detail nor special requirements. Do you want your suit / shirt monogrammed? Would you like the last button on your cuff to display a different colour? Do you eventually need extra pocket for your glasses, business cards, iPod, or cell phone? Simply ask, and your desire will be accommodated on the spot. Making your apparel so comfy and so unique.
Ambassador & Smart Fashion is one of those very few tailors in Bangkok who can work actually quickly... and well: though Paul prefers to ask his clients a little patience, waiting few days to get their order ready, those on a particular hurry can have it ready for fitting in as little as a few hours, indeed!
Note well that Paul and his team always refused to use a stock pattern to make suits; creating instead a unique pattern for each individual, specifically designed for his/her body type and style choices. This is maybe one of the reasons why clients always return to Ambassador & Smart Fashion, one of the most awarded custom tailors in South East Asia. Measurements are kept in records, allowing quick and easy email orders when you need to update your wardrobe without crossing the oceans. Each order is treated individually upon reception, and it takes less that a couple of weeks to get it delivered to your home.
The best tailors traditionally tour around the world to visit their clients: Ambassador & Smart Fashion representatives visit Europe, Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia and many other countries on a regular basis (at least once or twice per year) to comply with what we would consider as one of the most remarkable level of customer service in Thailand.
Warmly recommended by Tripadvisor, you can get updated about this great shop in Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.

BRITISH CUSTOM TAILORS: The most popular shopping paradise of Bangkok, Terminal 21, boasts one of the very best bespoke suit tailors in the world. A few minutes by modern and reliable public transportation from any part of Bangkok, linked directly to the BTS station Asoke as well as the Sukhumvit MRT line, Mr. Ram's welcoming shop is an heaven of peace and elegance in this impressive mall designed like an airport terminal.
Men, women and also large sizes will find here top quality, 100% hand-made British tailoring in its finest form. This is like Savile Row... with the prices of Thailand! We have seen many Thai, Asian and expats amongst Mr. Ram's customers; which is worth the mention. Tailors shops catering tourists only are usually, if not often, nothing but a scam.
Courteous and kind, the tailoring staff at British Custom Tailors doesn't measure his time to coach you on which fabric, colour and design would make you look more elegant and comfortable. Three generations of tailors stand behind this business: so feel relaxed and confident about their know-how and perfect taste, updated with the latest fashion trends. British Custom Tailors produces a range of bespoke garments, including morning suits, wedding suits, waistcoats, trousers, skirts, business suits, overcoats and shirts. All of which are contemporary styled, perfectly fitted and of exceptional quality and value which you will love at first fitting.
Mr. Ram will give you all his time; give him yours too, as it takes a minimum of 48 hours (we would advise 3 – 4 days) to create a smart and long-lasting bespoke tailored garment. Each detail counts. Come twice or thrice for fitting your new bespoke suit, already 100% verified to be of excellent and exquisite quality. The finest original fabrics from London or Milan have been selected by Ram to match a perfect design, and make you feel like what you actually are: a real gentleman (or lady)!
This most reliable shop philosophy consists in serving the people and their every tailoring need and desire. To just make them satisfied is considered a failure. Mr. Ram wants his returning customers to feel glorified & proud donning their tailored choice of suits & shirt.
Come for a free consultation & fitting, eventually enjoying the advantage of a complimentary pick-up from your hotel to the shop, take all your time to relax sipping a cup of tea or a well chilled Singha beer, and Mr. Ram will show how much he can make you become more noticeable than ever.

We must say that we like very much the smooth though efficient way Sunny and Sam proceed to produce the finest, most carefully designed and manufactured bespoke clothing for men and women, in the exact style and fabrics of your choice. So quickly, and at such a reasonable price that you will never buy anymore ‘off the rack’. Forget ready-to-wear, and enjoy these not-so-little premium features which will make you more noticeable than ever: monogram or full name inside your jacket, hand-picked stitching on lapel and matched lining on buttons, functional button holes on sleeves, additional inside pockets... Nobody does it better; even Brioni or Zegna. Shirts are aristocratic, with over twelve hand-cut / hand turned styles of collars to choose from. All come with generous tails and, if you like -and we recommend- classy monograms. It is of course possible to duplicate the fit of one of your favourite shirts, with that special custom tailor's special touch making all the difference between the good and the best.
Custom clothing is Unique Tailor's one and only business.

Also, most of the work process is hand-made and takes little bit more than one week (for suit, jackets and blazers) to fit you like a second skin. Shirts are manufactured more quickly. Of course Unique Tailor is shipping worldwide. Once Sunny and Sam get your measurements, you can order new bespoke from your home any time, thanks to the easy to use 3 steps purchase system, with secured payment via PayPal.

MIKE & Co.: Bangkok high-society (including the royal family) lives part-time in Hua Hin: an elegant seaside resort for elegant people. Astonishingly, it has only one important, recommendable tailor shop for such demanding clients. A couple of kilometres North from the Night Market tourist area -where so-called tailors stand in front of their shop, getting on your nerves when you walk past!- the Mike & Co. campus is the largest tailor center in the sunny and breezy Prachuap region.
Located in the picturesque Rashnee Thai Silk Village, amidst lush Siamese gardens, in a serene atmosphere characterizing luxury shops, Mike & Co. offers the highest, most traditional service and quality which you might expect from a top class South-East Asian custom tailor.
