“Suits you, Sir!”
Review of Paragon Tailor

Paragon Tailor
Ranked #7 of 15 Shopping in Kamala
Attraction details
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Having met Mike while playing an international cricket tournament on Phuket, I decided to update my wardrobe of now well-worn suits during my brief visit to the island. Taking into account I did not have much time to spend travelling for fittings, Mike and his staff very generously accommodated several fittings at my hotel before I had to dash off to play matches.
Aside from the exceptional service and evident knowledge of their trade, the finished items are without doubt the finest pieces of tailored clothing that I have had the joy of paying for . . . and that being comparatively a lot less than in other tailors in Europe and Asia. Three perfectly fitted suits, shirts, and ties to match all delivered in time before my flight home. I will be bringing my wife and son to Phuket in December, and I have promised them both a trip to Paragon Tailor for a shopping spree. Genuinely, after seeing my new apparel, my wife is more excited about having a selection of dresses, skirts and blouses made for her, rather than the 5-star hotel we've booked!
I cannot recommend Paragon Tailor and Mike, of course, highly enough. There's very few feelings for a man better than suiting up for business or dinner and having your wife, friends and colleagues compliment your taste in fine clothing.
A big thanks to Mike and Paragon Tailors.

My friends and I recently had a short break in Phuket and we were recommended Mike at Paragon Tailors. I was very impressed with the qaulity of the clothes and the fast turn around time. Mike even came to our Villa with our clothes for the first and second fittings! Everyone had their outfits by the time we had to head home. A big thanks to Mike for being so efficient, so much better than the clothes I had made in Hong Kong!

for someone that wasnt going to get any clothes made, I ended up with 2 x pants, 3 x business shirts, 1 x dress and 1 x jacket all for under $400AUD...

They made a shirt and modified another one for me, and result was great, price fair. They are kind and their English is very good. Compared to 2 other experience I had, way better than the others. They are close to the Buddhist temple, corner with the street, where a 7/11 is, south sea walkside.

This was our first time in Phuket and my wife and I were on a mission to get some tailored suits made. With so many to choose from it was hard to make a decision but after reading a Kamala thread on Trip Adviser we chose to give Mike at Paragon Tailor a go. And we are so pleased we did!

Located over the river at the southern end of the beach next to the 7 Eleven, Mike has a small shop away from the Main Street in Kamala which speaks to the type of business he has. Due to many satisfied repeat customers Mike does not need to be with the crowd or have a hawker outside persuading punters to buy from his business. Don't be fooled by his casual attire because after 17 years in the business and 13 based in Kamala Mike really knows what he is doing. We felt at ease right away and Mike gave good advice about the fabrics and designs we were choosing. We had several fittings and nothing was a problem. The finished articles are great quality and we are really happy with them. Mike is open about the fact he is not the cheapest and you get what you pay for. He offers a fair price and the only negotiating I did was in getting a scooter free of charge for the duration of our stay in Kamala (which was very handy for going to and from his shop for the fittings!)

All in all I feel confident in recommending Mike if you are looking for a tailor in Kamala Beach, Phuket.
