my husband had a suit made at the tailors inside the Hilton hotel, brilliant quality cost about £180.00 but we did pick a more expensive fabric and had a waistcoat made... took about 3days i think... there are lots of tailors in hua hin mainly indian people hassiling you, but the guy in the Hilton was great and we went to him out of recomendation ... we did get some linen pants etc made by some of the shops on the street

Jayo its all about the material and design that you want as the tailor shops don't necessarily make the suits. There are loads of shops in town but most fabric is taken oss site to be made up.

2 years ago I got 2 suits and 2 shirts from La Mode (turn right out of Hilton) and the are still in excellent shape. Total cost was £180. Enjoy Hua Hin you'll have a great time. Jim

Both visits to HH I've had things made by Milano. I had a sports jacket and 2 piece suit made for about £130

You may get cheaper elsewhere but the quality can't be guaranteed. This place comes highly recommended.

I have just had two suits made in two separate tailors in Hua Hin and the quality differed greatly between the two, having visited a number of shops I would highly recommend that you visit Hollywood Tailors (opposite the Hua Hin Golf Centre)in Soi Selakam which is the first street to the right coming out of the Hilton.

The staff here were brilliant and they go out of their way to ensure that you are buying the outfit to suit your exact specifications and not just a high pressured sale, the quality on the suit I had made here was quite simply superb, they even rectified the poor quality hems on my trousers from the first tailors along with fixing my wifes dress from the first shop.

If you are in the market for a suit, I would really give some consideration to this shop, they will show you examples of work that they are currently making so as you can examine the quality and not just look at an example from a tailors dummy in the window.

I have already posted this to another thread so apologies in advance for any clutter

I was in Hua-Hin last October and got a suit made in Picasso . Think they have 3 shops for fittings etc but suit made in same factory/workshop. I find the quality of my suit to be excellent both finish/workmanship and material. I cant remember the price though ...

They also made a dress for my wife from a picture in a magazine she picked up at Dublin Airport and it really really 1st rate.
