The area
Address
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.
How to get there
  • Si Lom • 2 min walk

I went to visit a number of Bangkok tailors, and had high hopes for July. When I went in to meet them and to check the level of craftsmanship I was greeted by what can only be described as a sneer.

The lead man on the floor clearly felt himself too good to deal with me and insisted I call him 'King' which if you know anything about Thai culture is the biggest disrespect someone can show.

He didn't bother showing me their cloth books, answered my questions in monosyllables, and was generally inhospitable. As I gave up and said goodbye, the salesman failed to conceal a laugh and I left July Tailor with a bad taste in my mouth.

Was it the way I was dressed? That I was a foreigner? I don't know, but I went on to get a number of suits and shirts made elsewhere and and am very glad I didn't give this guy my business.

I've made a few visits here over the past few years and have had business suits, trousers and shirts made at various times. This tailor seems to mainly deal with domestic and ex-pat clients, including Thai Royalty, international diplomats and World leaders (during an APEC meeting). They don't appear to actively seek the tourist customer and I agree that on first impression they can seem a bit aloof, but not rude. The quality and choice of the fabrics (many imported) and the cut and fit are fantastic but it does come at a price. You'll not be dragged off the street to go in and can ask the price before you order - once you've identified the fabric. I'll be returning later this year.

This place should be avoided, I wish I had read the other Tripadvisor review before going.
I went to this taylor because of its convenient location. I paid a deposit but then changed my mind, when I quickly realised the price was about double that of other Bangkok tailors (my mistake for not doing my maths right away, I admit). They did not agree to give the deposit back or lower their prices and in the end I had to pay 5000 thai bath for a single shirt (middle range fabric), more than it would have cost me in New York, Paris or Milan.
Don't go there, there are plenty of better places all around Bangkok...
