I'm heading back to Bangkok next month, and am intending to get some new suits done. I've previously had suits by Narin, which I was reasonably happy with, as well as several from tailors in Singapore.
I'm keen to check out World Group, and was wondering if they are ok with customers bringing their own fabric? I have recently been lucky enough to get my hands on some Fosters fabric, which I'm intending to use.
I'm happy to purchase some shirts from them as well, if it sweetens the deal.
Any advice you could offer would be most appreciated.
Kind regards

They are fine with customers brining their own fabric. The stitching with full canvas (tell them no fusing, hand stitched// full canvas confuses them) is around bhat 7500 or little less than usd300.
The have better fabrics for shirts than for suits.

Generally the quality is better than Singapore tailors especially adjusted for price. Singapore tailors are no longer cheaper than western ones at all.

Thanks again. Your advice is gratefully received.

I've been to many tailors over the last few years. Still looking for 'my tailor'

Hopefully this is the one I've been looking for.

Cheers
