“Courtesy, professionalism, and excellent tailoring at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We were initially uncertain about having a suit made in Phuket. But our experience in Cape Panwa (with a branch in Patong, we were told) has convinced us - we'll definitely be repeat customers, since we visit Phuket once or twice a year.
Tony, the owner of Star's Tailor, made our clothes with excellent quality and service, comfortable fabrics and reasonable prices.
We made a jacket with a skirt, a pair of trousers, and two blouses for a lady, and a shirt for a man. The tailor also
makes dresses. A number of expats, whom Tony told us were regular customers, came into the shop after we arrived at dusk. We were measured, and then had two fittings, within 24 hours. We settled on a price after a brief negotiation. Tony made expert recommendations regarding colour, materials and cut, and listened patiently to our requests.
Tony has lived in Phuket for around two decades and his conversation gave us an interesting insight into the changing culture of the island.
Tony has 23 tailors. The one we met, a young man, who met us at the shop for our first fitting the morning after our measurement, was courteous and very professional.
The shop is at the corniche on the main stretch at Cape Panwa, near Sri Panwa, Sawasdee café and next door to the Live India restaurant. It's worth noting that the tripadvisor map, as of mid-October 2013, gave the wrong location.
When we collected our clothes, we were honestly thrilled. Unfortunately, we did not have our receipt with us, and the price Tony had scribbled in his order book was more than the amount we had agreed. Tony agreed with us that the difference was due to an honest mistake. He acted professionally, did not raise a fuss, and accepted the amount we had originally agreed on.
Tony has kept our measurements. Thanks to his excellent tailoring and his courtesy, we will definitely return.

“Should've gone here first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

On a recent trip to Hong Kong I had shirts and trousers tailor made and then I went to Cape Panwa, Phuket. Well Tony's fabrics and quality was equal if not better than what is available in HK, at a far better price.
Would recommend Tony and Star Fashions to anyone seeking good quality clothes

My husband ordered 2 tailor made suits and the quality is amazing!!! We had to go in for several fittings just to make sure it was perfect and indeed it was!! I highly recommend getting suits made here as there is so much to pick and choose from to match your style.
