Love my dresses!
Jan 2016 • Friends
I brought my own novelty print fabric and a 50s style dress to be copied to Tuk, and she made me 4 dresses and one skirt. She did a fabulous job; they look just like the original. After the first fitting we realised the bust needed adjusting on all the dresses and Tuk altered them beautifully. I even ended up having my own dress altered to fit better too. All in all, I'd say it took about 2 weeks to get my dresses made with the alterations but it was over the christmas/new year period. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Tuk!

Very Impressed
Dec 2015 • Couples
After reading the other reviews of Paragon Tailor on trip advisor, I decided to check them out.

It is a small shop next to a 7-11 at the southern end of kamala beach. It is very clean and nice looking. We were helped by Tuk, who owns the shop with her husband (who also has an Indian restaurant in Patong). She was very friendly and her English is very good. We looked through some catalogues and then told her the style we liked. Then we picked the fabric and color we wanted. I must stress that there was no pressure at all. Just friendly chatting.

We had three fittings in total. 1st, 2nd, and then took home our suits the same time as our 3rd. All in all it was 3 days for this process.

My fiancé got a nice jacket, shirt, and skirt, while I got a jacket, shirt, and pants. Tuk also threw in a silk tie of my choice at no extra charge.

I am very happy with my suit and will be returning the next time I am in Thailand (Phuket).

If you don't have the time to get a suit tailored (2-3 days), I wouldn't recommend getting it done, as the negative reviews claim they did not receive their suits in the mail. But if you're in Kamala for a week, and you want a suit at a reasonable price (5,500 bhat at the time of this review) check them out! :)

Fantastic Tailor-Great English
Oct 2015 • Solo
Tok is the Tailors name she is fantastic. I took in fabric that I had purchased in Phuket Town. I had patterns of dresses, she didn't use them but just copied the photos instead. I had 2 dresses made and 2 skirts. The skirts were copied off one I had with me. They were exactly matched. There were several fittings and nothing was a problem to change a thing. I was so pleased and look forward to my next visit with Tok. Shes a gem !

After visiting Phuket a number of times it is wonderful to see my trusted Tailor at the door greet us one year later Mike you are one of the highlights of our holiday. As always the clothes I had copied were prefect, the serves amazing. I would totally recommend Mike at Paragon Tailors in Kamala Beach to every one he is and his wonderful wife are genuine and so helpful I would not every consider going to anyone else.

Excellent and friendly service
We stayed in Kamala area during our holiday in Phuket, and most of the tailors with good reviews are around Kata and Patong areas. So, naturally I was very apprehensive to use Paragon tailor - especially with mixed reviews on TA, but the thought of regular trips across to either Patong or Kata for fitting etc - I have decided to give them a chance.
I was greeted by James or Veejay, who runs the shop on behalf of Mike ( didn't get the chance to meet Mike at all during our stay). Ordered three suits, with extra pair of pants for each and three shirts. The price was reasonable considering the materials. I had to pay extra for special lining for the suit instead of their standards. The workmanship was excellent and the attention to details was commendable especially with all the special requests. Very pleased with my suits and highly recommended. James is such a friendly person, with excellent command of English. They also offer laundry drop off- 50thb per kg, which handy when you come back for fittings. James also could help with day trip / car hire etc if needed, we were planning to but decided against it after seeing the traffic in Phuket main roads.

Best tailor in Kamala
Nov 2013 • Couples
My wife Vanessa and I have been buying made to measure business and casual clothes from Mike for over 10 years. I usually buy around four or five suits and a dozen business shirts as I'm a big guy and can't afford to get made to measure/bespoke suits in Australia. My friends and workmates always comment on how well made and nice his suits are. My wife buys suits, skirts and blouses for work and has always been very happy. We keep going back every year as Mike does a professional job, is well priced and reliable. I look forward to catching up with Mike again this November.

Thief! Liar! Don't go here!!!
I went to paragon on my honeymoon to buy a couple suits. The owner Mike seemed very nice and was super friendly. He told me he would have my two suits done before we left a week later. Well it's now almost 6 months later and I still never received them. The last day of my trip I went to pick my suits up and he said they were not ready yet but that he would ship them to me. I never received a shipping number. I even had a friend who is Thai contact him about 10 times to try and see what happened. He claimed that there must be a problem with the shipping and that he would resend my suits and give her the shipping number so I would know they were on the way. He kept putting her off saying that he would get her the number soon but never did. Now he hangs up on her when she calls. Don't let his smile fool you. This man is a thief. I see that other people have had this same problem and I wish I had listened to them!

Listen to me! Don't support this business!!!! He will steal your money. I lost over $500 for two suits.

Good Job.. BUT NEVER TRUST IN MIKE FROM PARAGON TAILOR
Aug 2013
We visited Kamala Beach in june 2011. we meet Mike every time we went to the 7/elleven shop. we ended up buying a nice suit and a lot of shirts and some nice dreeses for the girls. very good job.
Since we talk to them every day we had a great connection and it ended up with Mike was comming to Denmark on a visit on his Scandinavian sales tour. We meet up in our hose and had a great dinner and coffee and late talk. we ordered 4-5 suits and lots of shirts. he said it would be no problen with the fittings cos he will just send it to us. we fell that we had o lot of trust cos the man was standing in our house and so on so that he asked for a deposit he got 1350€ arround 10.000dkr so he could pay for material and transfer and so on. He left our house and we have never heard from him since that time!!
Some of my close friends have a family restaurant i Kamala Beach and they are there at the moment and telling me that Mike is still there and they have more of the same stories from Norwiegan people.
So my advise is clear!!: Dont pay ANYTHING in advance to that man. he seems nice but underneeth he is a clever cheating man!!

Excellent Tailor in Kamala Beach
Apr 2014 • Business
I live in Phuket and was in need of getting a suit that i needed for work. I was recommend to go to Paragon Tailor in Kamala and meet Mike. I was not sure about the same but again thought of just checking the shop out as it was not far. I went there and asked for Mike and then i meet this wonderful gentleman who was very friendly and knew what he was taking and doing. Unlike other shops he never pushed me to buy the things that i didn't require. He took my measurements and showed me the fabric and i decided to make one suit. He asked me to come the next day for the first fitting (that what he calls it) and to my suprise it was almost perfect but he continue sly kept working on the same and the end product was perfect.
I then got a couple of more made from him which fits me perfectly. I like his professionalism and the perfection with which he was doing his work.
