Top ways to experience similar attractions

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.

Totally terrible place to do business with

Im staying outside Thailand and i've ordered suits from this shop. They promised to mail in a week but until today ( 1 month) i have not received any mail yet.
Effort was made to call them but no one seems to pick up the phone and one of the number is wrong number.

When i checked the internet for this shop info, i managed to call them but the person was really rude and without knowing my order num he said the delivery was made 5 days ago and will be delivered in 2 weeks.

I just hope it will arrive safely and if not i will have to go back to bangkok to teach these culprit a lesson

Sadly Modern Tailor was all talk. On arrival I gave designs to the salesman who guaranteed they would deliver. I was fitted, selected the fabric and charged the entire amount. It was no bargain but was swayed by the salesman. The first fitting all the dresses looked nothing like what I had ordered. I kept referring to the photos and was told not too worry. I was very clear that none of them where what I had ordered. The salesman kept at me and said he would fix them.
Since it was a fitting I was hopeful they would improve. On my 3rd return the dresses lacked the appropriate changes. In fact, they were worse than the initial fitting. I again referred to the photos and was basically told excuses. I kept asking about the changes he said would be done. He then said they would make more changes and deliver late night to the hotel. I was almost speechless since I had no trust or faith after being scammed and since he also knew we were leaving in the morning. Before we had time to respond he packed up the blouses that were made with arms of different lengths and different sizes. I again attempted to speak with him but he ignored me. We were then led downstairs and handed the blouses. There was no indication of the 3 dresses, offer of any solution and no compensation. When we questioned him again he responded that this is how it was going to be. So we paid $650 for blouses that did not fit and dresses that we're not delivered. We have many positive experiences with tailors throughout the world. Sadly, this one was recommended by our driver so we didn't do our homework.

Completely disappointed
Long story short- a complete ripoff. We would have received better quality, fit, pricing and service at a major San Francisco department store. Ugh, 4 blouse each of completely different sizes- even different length sleeves. The 3 dresses were completely un-wearable for anyone who cares how they look. They were left behind with no offer of refund or other compensation. I'm sure there are great tailors in Bangkok but Modern is not one.

AVOID THIS PLACE!

Fraudsters! They couldn't cut a suit if they tried. I was mis-sold a suit by them after a hard sell. Beware of a person called Kumar - he is unable to measure you correctly and will promise you everything you want and deliver everything you don't want!

I have been coming to this place for 2 years. Their work is always spot on, down to the last detail. I am from Los Angeles. Buying my cloths from Modern more than pays for the trip. After being screwed over at other Bangkok tailors, I won't go any other place.

Not a good experience

On a business trip to Bangkok in January I decided that it was about time that I had a few suits made. Modern Tailor House was close to my hotel so I decided to give them a go. The sales staff are very persuasive and even though I had made my mind up to just buy two suits, they kept pushing me to buy a coat, chinos, blazer etc. When I declined they keep offering to discount the price or throw in free ties. In the end I stuck to my guns and just opted for the suits and a couple of shirts.

The process all seemed very simple and once I had been measured and selected my fabrics I was asked to pay in full by credit card. At this point, I did the one thing they always tell you that you shouldn't - I let them take my card away with them rather than waiting for them to bring over the machine. I cannot be 100% sure, but it was a new card and I only used it at this one store; however, I was contacted yesterday by the fraud department stating that someone had tried to use my card in the US. I could be completely wrong; however, I would just recommend that if you pay by card in this store you don't let it out of your sight!

The suits were delivered to my hotel prior to my departure; however, they looked rather rushed and the finish wasn't particularly good. I shalln't be going here again and to be honest it has rather put me off having suits made abroad. Pity really, as I rather liked the idea of being able to order clothes from the UK.

Great value and incredible service
Modern tailor house was recommended to us by some friends we met while traveling. We only had one night in Bangkok on our way home - not knowing if this would be fit to purpose for tailormade clothing... We tried anyway and took a detour to Modern Tailor House from Bangkok airport. We were amazed by the efficiency and quality of service. It took us 1 hour to get measured and decide (the hardest part) and we had a fitting a few hours later... Everything we saw looked perfect and we can't wait to see the final result... Oh - BTW - they also handle the shipment and keep your measurements for later orders... Just awesome..

Not dissapointed

First time I came in here, (brought by a very pushy tuktuk driver) I was immediatly talked into buying as much as possible. When I told them I needed some time to overthink before I buy they came with all kinds of offers and sales 'just for me'. I decided to get 1 suit, 2 shirts and 2 ties for the price of 6000B (seemed fair to me) All Cashmere fabric (don't know much about fabrics, but it felt nice and comfortable). So the day after measurements, the next day the suit would be delivered. Next day there was no delivery and I found out that this company was on tripadvisor. Reviews are 50/50 either very good, or either very bad. I got a little worried and called the company to ask about my suit. They promised to deliver the next day at 11am, and so they did. I tried the suit on and I have to say; It seemed like they did a pretty good job!! Like I said, I'm not really capable of telling when quality is really high or low, but fabric felt nice and the fittings were perfect... So high quality or not, for 150 Euro's I'm not complaining

Excellent value and service

We were taken to this tailors by a tuk-tuk driver and went in for a look. The staff were friendly and helpful and not at all pushy.
We were shown various designs and materials.
I decided on 3 shirts and my wife had a dress made. They were delivered to our next hotel in Puket a few days later, as we were leaving the next morning.
The quality and fit were excellent, very pleased with the quality of service and the goods.
Any emails I sent to check on the progress were answered very quickly.
