The area

Neighborhood: Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

Tuk tuk scam
May 2019 • Solo
Same as other reviewers, hired a tuk tuk to show me the city, took me to a bunch of crap places and then brought me here. Its nothing but high pressure sells tactics and misrepresented products. You will get something for your money, but it will be the shoddy work of a bad craftsman who doesnt give a flying fook, and you'll be charged through the nose for a product whose base quality is being lied about. There is one good thing about this place however, once you've been scammed by the best you wont get scammed by the rest!

Online order - excellent quality
Jun 2019 • Business
I've been in the shop a couple of years ago and ordered since then twice by email (selected the fabrics in the online store). They still had my measures. Quality is excellent. Shipping arrived within one week in Europe after having sent my order.

Will definitely order again or pass by the shop if I'm in Bangkok!

Great quality and prices
Jan 2019 • Solo
Max has been my go to place for suits. I’ve been to a lot of tailors in Bangkok and this is the one that offers great quality, service and prices in a very comfortable environment. I was able to get a great tuxedo here for less than $250. I have another favorite shop for custom shirts but I still like the great package deal he offers as well as the grea selection of suit fabrics.

Awful........
Jan 2018 • Couples
this is the 1st time in all my travelling I have felt the need to leave a negative review

My partner decided to have a look as we were passing to see if they had any suitable fabric to make some nice business dresses, as she is a dressmaker and designer herself she wanted to be the one treating herself to some well tailored garments, we found a nice blue, went through the design wanted (a simple pencil dress) they took some pictures of what she wanted and took measurements, not all that many mind you.

The day after she went for 1st fitting and there were a few issues, which I know often can be having had stuff made several times before around Thailand and Vietnam, they hadn't got the dress sitting right on her hips, was too tight and the neckline feature was the wrong side, not the end of the world and said it would be fine and they marked out what needed to change, all very confident. At this point she should have possibly took it as a warning, but decided to also have another one made in a dark blue and an A line dress made with some silk fabric bought from the weavers in Myanmar.

We ended up having to visit a total of 7 times! each time we asked if tomorrow we would try on all 3 and each time a day later we arrived to find just one, the reason being is they wanted to get 1 right so they can copy for the rest, well copy they did as the A line dress was cut 5 inches too short and was NOT the cut asked for or shown in the drawings, with this being her own fabric there was not enough to redo it so then had to be changed into a 3rd pencil skirt.

In the end most of the fittings were going over the same issues time and time again, and she has left with 1 out of 3 dresses that she is happy with, the original is shocking, 1 side is fitted, whilst the other has been left, presentation is awful with loose threads everywhere and stitch marks in the fabric, and a belt not the size agreed, the other is not the dress she originally wanted and the other is ok, but far from what I would expect off a tailors like this.

We did go back to the shop (they were delivered to the hotel the night we were leaving) and said we were far from happy, the boss had conveniently gone home 10 mins before, he did offer to fix it (I lost count of how many time over the week he had said that to no avail) but we just wouldn't trust they would arrive right, refund or part refund was refused but we were given some fabric to make a new one when she got home, kind of missing the point of having a tailored dress for yourself!

The mens stuff may be slightly better but I wouldn't trust them one bit, as it happened she wishes she had used the tailor I used up the road, who were accurate, friendly and presented their work much better. the only reason its not a 1 star is because he did at least make some sort of gesture at the end, but spoilt our last week and especially last day of our special (engagement!) holiday

Amazing dresses at Max Custom Tailor
Sep 2016 • Friends
I had my favorite vacation dress copied in two colors at Max. Prem was super helpful in picking out colors. He was also able to have two shirts made with just measurements that ended up fitting perfectly when I got back home. The best part, all of this work only took 4 days!

Fantastic service and exceptional quality
Apr 2016 • Business
We were looking for a tailor in Bangkok on Silom Road when we stumbled on Max Custom Tailors. The first thing that grabbed our attention was the look of the shop. From the outside the premises looked spacious, fairly modern and clean.

Upon entering the shop we were greeted by Prem, who seated us and provided us with various catalogues. We knew what we wanted so upon finding the suit cuts we wanted we showed Prem the suits we wanted done.

This is where the fun began and one could quickly see how much passion the tailor had for his trade. In a way I feel we disappointed him as our tastes for colour are very bland. But this did not stop him from showing us all sorts of materials that he felt could be appropriate. We eventually settled on black cashmere for the suits that both my husband and I wanted.

Seeing that Prem felt quite passionately for the materials we asked him to choose the lining for us. To be honest we thought that his choice was a bit risky but the end product proved us wrong.

We had to go for a second fitting, during which I was given a whole bunch of options and given advice as what would be best. By Thursday the suits were ready and fitted perfectly.

The whole experience started on a Monday with a second fitting on Wednesday and final product by Thursday.

We were told to bargain for everything in respect of price but being tired from the trip in getting to Bangkok the will was simply not there. However, the quoted price was extremely reasonable. My husband just asked for a 10% discount that was immediately accepted.

Overall, fantastic experience, professional service, with a final product to match.
