GMC Tailors, Bangkok, Thailand

This is the tailor that I use in Bangkok. They are located in Amarin Plaza, right next to the entrance when you enter Amarin from the sky walk. Take note, however, that they may be moving to another location in a few months.


They are not the cheapest, but came recommended by friends. So, last year, I tried their tailoring for the first time. The outcome was very good. Since then, I have gone back two more times.

The chap smiling is called Sak. He and his co-worker speak decent English. No worries about communication.
So why do I tailor? The fit is much better compared to the shirts and pants I buy off-the-shelf. Prior to tailoring, I would usually buy office shirts from Marks & Spencer. The quality was good, but it just didn't fit very well.

Today, I only wear tailored shirts and pants for work. I have also made two suits with this shop, and the outcome was also very good.

The Process
The first time is the most laborious. He has to take your detailed measurements. By the next working day, a shirt and pants would be ready for fitting. Once you are happy with the fit, they can tailor for you on short notice, once you have selected the material.

For example, on our latest trip, we visited the shop at 10am on a Friday morning. I ordered 4 shirts, 3 pants and a suit. All were delivered to my hotel on Sunday morning, so I didn't have to go back to the shop again. 

Very convenient and reliable.

Walking Advertisement
I ended up becoming a walking advertisement for the shop - this was at Bangkok Airport.



Safe travels!
