Very good

I went to Bob’s shop because it was highly rated, and I’m glad I did. I had him make me one suit, a jacket and five shirts, and all came out perfect. I’m a very tall / slim build guy and I’ve always had trouble finding clothes that fit my particular body shape. Bob quickly recognized exactly what I needed at the initial measurement and the clothes came out perfect at the first fitting. He is a complete professional and I highly recommend you give him a chance if you’re in the market for some custom fitted clothes at really good prices. I will definitely be ordering from him in the future now that he has my measurements on file.

Last month I decided to get a new suit during our stay in Chiang Mai. I had the good fortune to walk into Manhattan Tailor where I not only got a suit I love that is expertly fitted to me, but experienced fantastic service.

The owner is skilled and personable and makes the experience fun. He takes pride in his work and the product reflects it. My suit was the best deal I got in Thailand.

I had two pants and one jacket made. I could already tell at the first fitting that he didn`t like that I asked for alterations. At the final fitting we had a little dispute about some missing pockets that he claimed were not on the picture of the pants I picked out, although the way I remember it we clearly talked about front pockets for both pants I ordered and there were even definetly pockets on the picture. My boyfriend then noticed some irregularities in the seam of the belt lax, which caused the fabric to crinkle. The tailor`s response was that I dind't have to take the pants if I dind't like them and that he would refund me, taking it very personally.The other pants turned out all right and the jacket was ok as well, although there were still visiblel chalk marks on it. What was more disturbing was that he started to take pictures of me with his cell phone when I tried on the jacket without even asking if that was ok with me. After that he was very eager for us to leave.I will definetly not return.

We came here after reading the great reviews on trip advisor. We have had custom clothing made many times in Thailand but never in Chiang Mai so we did the research and came here. Bob speaks excellent English and was very accommodating and helpful as we chose the fabrics for 2 suit jackets, 2 pants and 2 shirts for my husband, a dress for myself and my 11 yr old daughter and a jacket for our 7 yr old son. We had ample time for the process and allotted for 3 fittings over 3 days. Our daughters dress and sons jacket turned out great. My dress needed some changes and I felt that Bob was "put out" when I suggested it wasn't quite right. I had brought In a picture from a magazine to copy but after trying the first fitting, determined that some changes were needed to suit my body type. He seemed frustrated with me but did make the changes and I was happy with the end result. For my husband, the 2 pants were perfect but he had issues with the jackets and the shirts. Clearly there were 2 different tailors cutting the fabric as one suit jacket was perfect and the other was clearly cut a size larger. Again, when my husband pointed this out, Bob was frustrated and somewhat argumentative but continued to state that he would make it right. At the end of the day, the clothes did turn out nicely but I wouldn't say it was an entirely enjoyable experience. Cost was not inexpensive - we paid $1250 CDN for the 9 items. The men's clothing was reasonable but I think $160 each for a child's dress and a suit jacket for a 7 yr old was costly. Bobs wife is absolutely lovely and she handled our second fitting as Bob was away ill. She was much more enjoyable to deal with and really took the time to listen and make the required changes to ensure the end result was perfect. The quality of the workmanship is very good and I believe that we did receive a good end product but we didn't enjoy the experience of dealing with him and would not likely return.

Very happy with the work Bob did for my wife and I. Suits were very nice, exactly as we asked. Even made house call to our hotel. Third time I've had suits made in Thailand and probably the best so far. Very happy and will order more from him.

A suit in the window caught our eye and we couldn't be happier with the experience. Bob pays exceptional attention to detail. He went the extra mile with the interior lining of the suits we had made. The craftsmanship and detail he puts into his work is absolutely beautiful. It is great that he keeps measurements for the future and can ship back home for us. We will absolutely be ordering more suits, especially for our upcoming wedding!

If you are considering going to Manhattan Tailor, go somewhere else. I spent a large amount of money ($340CAD) for what was supposed to be a top-quality custom fit suit and instead, ended up with a wide ill-fitting suit on my petite frame. This defeated the whole purpose of getting a custom-measured suit. Bob had poor expertise in women's suits, was angry, unprofessional, and volatile at each fitting, and did a poor job at taking measurements to give to the tailors who actually sewed the suit. I am greatly dissatisfied with my experience.

For background, I did a great deal of research prior to coming to Chiangmai and based on photos and reviews from multiple websites, we chose to go to CM Custom Tailor for my husband's suit and to Manhattan Tailor for my ladies suit. What a dramatic difference between the 2, and what a terrible experience for me.

On Day 1 when we made our first visits to the tailors, my husband got 5 star treatment at CM Custom Tailor - we were offered water, treated professionally, and the staff member went painstakingly through each fabric. We walked over to Manhattan Tailor and had a dramatically different experience. Bob was reluctant to go over the different fabrics with us and simply waved at the rack of fabrics and told us to choose for ourselves. It took quite a bit of prompting to get the service we deserved. I was then specific in my request for a custom suit. I am slim and petite and asked for a very slim cut suit. I showed him photos and asked for slim lines.

On Day 2, I returned for my 1st fitting. There were 2 other tourists there that made a custom order and as soon as they left, Bob made unprofessional and uncomplimentary remarks about them. When I tried on the suit, I was shocked to find the pants 1.5 times as wide as I am, with the waist and bottom sagging and the legs extremely wide (photo attached). When I pointed out the bagginess of the pants, Bob became volatile and angry very quickly, not wanting to make any adjustments. When my husband asked him if the pants were made according to the measurements taken on Day 1, he replied that he always takes the measurements and adds to it because he doesn't want to have to let out clothing. Even after this admission, he became extremely inflamed if I mentioned the pants did not fit well and I wanted them taken in. He repeatedly tried to make it sound like I would not be able to move if he made the adjustments. Finally, reluctantly, he agreed to make adjustments to both jacket and pants.

On Day 3 at my 2nd fitting, the pants were much better but snug on 1 leg and not the other. For the record, I had no problem moving around or sitting in them with the adjustments I had asked for. He was actually willing to adjust the leg asymmetry without much protest. However, I noted the jacket was still not slim cut and asked for the armholes to be cut smaller. He flew off the handle at this and yelled at us that this is how suits are and again said I would not be able to move if he made adjustments. After much debate, he finally called the tailor he hires to sew the suit jackets, and that tailor said it would be no trouble at all. We waited a couple of hours and both the tailor that worked on the pants and the tailor that worked on the suit jacket delivered both items to him that night. On fitting, the jacket was still too large and the pants back to being slightly baggy but at this point, I was too tired of fighting with Bob to ask for any further adjustments. Meanwhile, when we asked for the exact same adjustment with my husband's suit at CM Custom Tailor, they were happy to make the corrections, always professional, and even allowed him to choose a suit lining and threw in a tie and garment bag.

Overall, I am extremely disappointed in the service and product I purchased from Manhattan Tailor. The fabric colour and material is lovely but the issue is with the fit.
You can see the boxy cut of the jacket in the attached photo. Don't waste your money and time arguing with Bob, just go somewhere else. We personally had a wonderful experience at CM Tailor and would not return to Manhattan Tailor.
