We had carried out some minimal research before arriving in Koh Samui, but tentatively decided on Timmy's as this is the name of our dog!

As other reviewers point out, other tailors in Chaweng offer cheap suits, turned around in 24 hours, with pushy and generally rude people out front. One guy was quite angry when he saw us walk back to our hotel with a Timmy's suit bag in hand!

Upon entering Timmy's, we were greeted by Ash who took the time to inquire what we were after. Ash was very helpful, not pushy and offered some good insights.

We paid our deposits and were told to come back the next day for an initial fitting. Timmy and Ash were both there and both offered good advice, and sought to ensure we were completely satisfied with our suits/shirts.

Another fitting the next day with the nearly-finished product, and Ash and Timmy still very friendly, asking about our holiday.

At final fitting I changed my mind about the colour of the buttons on one of my shirts and they were happy to have this changed at no extra charge.

Two of my shirts were not yet ready so they had them delivered to our hotel, which saved us another trip to the shop.

I'd highly recommend Timmy's tailor: great customer service, not pushy, good range of styles to choose from, and you get the sense you're getting some quality product.

Still in Koh Samui so haven't worn the suits/shirts yet, but I am pretty confident I'll be happy.

I asked tripadvisor to put Timmy's shop on their site because I wanted to write a review in order to show others some of the work Timmy has done for me.

I think Timmy is the best choice if you have a copy of the suit or dress you would like his team to make.

I think the more specific you are the better the result. Misunderstandings can happen, sometimes more fitting is required. Do not feel shy about it. Timmy wants you to leave satisfied.

Went to Koh Samui and was blown away by all the pushy sales people on the island. We therefore were a little anxious because we wanted to get shirts and a vest made, but se didn't wanted to get hassled.

We scoured Tripadvisor and found a lot of good comments of Timmy's, so we decided to try it out.

First of all, there were no pushy impolite staff on the street, unlike the hundreds scattered all over Chaweng. Really cool.

When we entered the shop we were greeted by the NICEST lady who seemed really interested in helping us. She gave us all the time we needed, and even though we took a looong time deciding, she didn't mind at all. On the contrary, she too knew how important it was to make the right decision, even if it took a few hours.

We decided on 3 shirts and a vest, and went to 2 fittings with the nice owner, a man who told us he had 2 shops on the island. He told us time and again to let us know if we were 't satisfied, but when the clothes came, it was ALL made to perfection. I have had clothes made before in Thailand, but this was defenitely the best place.

I will recommend Timmy's anytime - I promise that you will not be disappointed...

We visited Timmy's as we knew we wanted some suits made and the reviews in the trip advisor forum all recommended Timmy's. All of the reviews in the forum are correct, this has to be the best tailor in Samui.
If you want a cheap suit turned around in 24 hours then this isn't the place for you; if you want good quality, well fitting clothing that will last for years then go to see Timmy. We were on Samui for just over a week and had several fittings allowing us to ensure the garments were exactly how we wanted them.
Every third shop in Chaweng is a tailor, most of them have some signs outside with offers of a six piece set for 49euros, they come complete with a pushy salesman stood outside hassling you as you walk past. You don't get this at Timmy's, just a good honest conversation and a suit to match.
We heard tales from other holiday makers of cheap suits they'd had made and then had to have resewn and altered when they get home.
Don't make a mistake and fall for the offers, go to Timmy and get the best. His prices are very fair and fixed at the start, no nasty surprises.
Thank you Timmy for your expert work and our new suits!
