Had to get a shirt and trousers made asap, they got them done in just five hours. Gotta respect the guy for making a good sales pitch without the harassment or sketchy vibes you get from other tailors near khaosan. Great experience overall

Only place to go for a suit if youre thinking of getting one done. These guys dont street advertise and only do things professionally (they wont annoy you). Me and my friends came here at the start of our trip and came back at the end and everything is perfect after a few small adjustments. They guys are all helpful and the price is good also. I certainly recommend these just google the address and find it if you are unsure where it is.

I had two suits made by BuddyTailor on Khaosan Road in July 2015.

It’s always fun and exciting to have tailor-made clothes done for you, and Buddy Tailor provided me with a great experience.

They struck me as very friendly and sincere, and I much appreciated that Buddy Tailor is NOT the kind of tailor business that has employees out on the street where they accost you with annoying shouts of “cheap, cheap, tailor-made suit for you, Sir”.

Even though in my case it turned into five rounds of fittings before I was fully satisfied with my suits, you could tell by their concentrated facial expressions during the fittings that they took their work very seriously. It’s much preferable to come back for an extra fitting knowing that the tailors will keep making the small adjustments that you desire until you’re fully satisfied with the suits.

I highly recommend Buddy Tailor to anyone who wants to have a quality suit made by quality tailors in Bangkok!

Arrive on the 1sr and order a suit and buy a shirt.
Totally pulled into the charm of the guy.

I need it back on the 14th as I fly back to Sydney.
Guess what - they hadn’t sent the docket to the factory.

Then tried to convince me to make it and they would send it on.

End of the story - got my money back in Baht (smashed on the exchange rate at the airport)

They have nice ties which they gave me to compensate for the taxi there and back to the airport after arriving this morning from Samui.

Anyway - like I said nice ties

Dealing with these guys was such a nightmare. I went there to get 2 suits, 1 tuxedo jacket, 1 leather jacket and 8 or 9 shirts. I've only had 3 days in Bangkok, and was there the first day I arrived. They took my measures and hey promised I'd have the rough cuts for fitting the next day. This did not happen, but they assured me that the measuring would be enough to get a perfect fit. The clothing was sent to me about 2 months later. Only thing that fitted was the pants and 3 of the shirts. I spent over $200 dollars at a local alternations shop to have the suits and leather jacket fitted. On the jackets we took out as much as 4 inches! The shirts that didn't fit I simply had to throw away. Worst thing is that I gave them my best shirt to use as template, which they were supposed to send back to me with the shipment, but they never did. Every time I wrote them they said they wee going to send it, but it never arrived, and now they are not answering my emails anymore. Stay away!

This is now my second visit to Buddy Tailor's. After purchasing two suits and some shirts late last year and being very happy with them, I promised to return for my wedding and groomsmen's suits. The work here is of a very high standard and the guys make sure that your suits / shirts will fit perfectly before they give them to you. There are a lot of tailors around the area that will offer you cheap suits but you will not get anywhere near the same quality and workmanship as you will from this place. You won't be bothered out on the streets from them like many of their competitors as they rely mainly on repeat custom and word of mouth (I have seen first hand the number of people that they are getting orders from abroad from just during the time I was in the shop). They were happy to speak via Skype prior to my visit to make sure the measurements were correct for the groomsmen. I am extremely happy with the end product. They even re-cut the suits and shirts I purchased previously to make sure they still fit perfectly. I would highly recommend this place and will be back again in the future.

I had a great time at Buddy tailors, they treated me really well and made excellent suits for Both me and my girlfriend, the fabrics are top notch and minor alterations took less then a day to complete. Thanks Buddy.

Ps: they do not hound you in the streets to buy from them and are always friendly.

The guys at buddy tailor were absolutely amazing I had two suits made which look and fit better then any other suit I've had made. One of my suits i wanted they did not have enough material but they were able to order it in have it made all before my holiday was over! I was travelling around Thailand and they were even kind enough to deliver the suits straight to my hotel! All my needs were met on a very high skill and professional level ( very impressed) I also had a extra tie put in some and some very smart cuff links! I really couldn't rate these guys enough, try it and you'll feel the same I have taken their details and will be ordering from them in the future as they can send to UK (bonus)

I just got back from a trip to Thailand. I spent 4 days in Bangkok, mainly around Khaosan Road, a place filled with backpackers and shops selling everything from pad thai to tank tops to scorpions to suits. You can't walk 10 steps without a man approaching you, asking you to come into their suit store to purchase one of their suits. I didn't think I wanted a suit, and although I humored a few of the guys, I never saw the quality I wanted for the price I wanted until I walked into Buddy Tailoring of my own accord. These guys were great. First of all, they choose not to walk up and down the street asking people to come buy their suits. Instead, they let their quality clothing, customer service and reasonable prices speak for themselves. I got measured up and was able to get two custom shirts and a custom suit for a fraction of the price I would get it in the U.S.A without sacrificing any of the quality. I came back a few days after getting measured up, but the clothes still didn't fit perfectly, so they fixed it and it was perfect by the next day. If you are in need of some new dress shirts, suits, or even dresses, you'd be hard pressed to find a better store in the world. Don't miss out on this great opportunity.

Read through the poor and terrible reviews, and have to say it's bullcrap.

3 Novices entered the shop in the Afternoon, around 1pm, we had no clue about bargaining and pricing, but we got an excellent deal which each of us got 2 suits and 2 shirts (I bought a tuxedo). We got great service and advice. We were a little sceptical, as it seemed too good to be true so we went looking elsewhere for prices, but the quality was not up to par.

With an early flight the next day, they pushed the fitting at 7pm the 3 gentlemen had them ready in the evening, granted there was a little problem with the trousers but they fit perfectly when we went back, slightly drunk on local beer around 10pm.

All in all, a great place to pick up a suit or two.
