Suit Up: 5 Tailor Shops in Bangkok That Will Bring Out The Gentleman In You
A man’s gotta do what a man's gotta do. And one thing a man must undoubtedly do is pamper himself with the experience of sliding into a body-hugging, tailor-made suit, which will automatically add the “gentle” to the “man”.
This article introduces 5 tailor shops for all types of budgets that will surely make you stand out from the crowd. Get ready to get your measurements taken in style.
It is not easy to find tailor-made suits that start at the friendly price of 1,900 baht, but it is possible at Bangkoksuits. The reason Bangkoksuits can make their custom suits for cheap is not that they use inexpensive materials or lack quality, but it is because they are a factory that manufactures suits for other shops.
Going directly to Bangkoksuits skips the middleman allowing you to get good quality suits at outlet prices. The store specializes in suits for weddings, but because of their friendly costs, there is a long queue so you may have to wait between 3-8 weeks.
DNA is known to be popular among the young and hip crowd due to their suit styles that range from flashy to norm. Situated in the heart of Siam Square, DNA ensures that all suits made by them are fitting for modern men.
They offer affordable suits as well as bowties, pins, cuff links, and other accessories that will ensure you are the beau of the ball. Business has been good and they now have another branch located in Silom Complex.
The team at SUITCUBE started off by producing a clothing line called Somite before eventually opening SUITCUBE in 2014 and ended up specializing in all things suits. This meant that the Suit Cube team started off with an excellent grasp of fashion in general, and it reflects in their custom-made suits.
As a testament to their brand and service, SUITCUBE has since expanded to 6 outlets located at Siam Square, Terminal 21, The Promenade, Rama 3, Seacon Square, and Central Festival Chiang-Mai.

Tailor on Ten
Tailor on Ten was founded in 2010 by a Canadian tailor. As the name suggests, the tailor shop was initially located in Sukhumvit Soi 10, but later moved to the current location, which is a classic wooden house in Sukhumvit Soi 8.
The new place screams luxury and offers a remarkable amount of space for all customers to try out the suits. The clientele at Tailor on Ten are mostly expats but many locals who are slowly learning about it have since sworn by their custom cuttings.
